There is a concerted global effort to digitize biodiversity occurrence data from herbarium and museum collections that together offer an unparalleled archive of life on Earth over the past few centuries. The Global Biodiversity Information Facility provides the largest single gateway to these data. Since 2004 it has provided a single point of access to(More)
Emerging evidence indicates impairments in somatosensory function may be a major contributor to motor dysfunction associated with neurologic injury or disorders. However, the neuroanatomical substrates underlying the connection between aberrant sensory input and ineffective motor output are still under investigation. The primary somatosensory cortex (S1)(More)
STUDY OBJECTIVES Pleural fluid cytology and non-image-guided Abrams or Cope biopsies have sensitivities of approximately 30% for detecting malignant mesothelioma, and thoracoscopic biopsy has a sensitivity of approximately 90%. The difference between these two probably relates to obtaining adequate tissue. The use of immunohistochemical stains allows a firm(More)
Lymphoid interstitial pneumonitis (LIP) is a rare clinicopathological entity that may be associated with common variable immune deficiency (CVID) and may lead to respiratory failure and death. Some patients may respond to prolonged corticosteroid treatment. We hypothesised that, in view of the predominant T cell nature of LIP, cyclosporin A would be a more(More)
This paper gives a brief overview of the diverse field of bioinformatics, identifying research themes. It then introduces the BBSRC funded eScience pilot projects against this overview by presenting their biological aims. Areas of the eScience programme addressed by these projects are identified to determine the contribution they are expected to make to(More)
Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) of the primary motor cortex (M1) can be used to evaluate descending corticomotor influences on spinal reflex excitability through modulation of the Hoffman reflex (H-reflex). The purpose of this study was to characterize between-session reliability of cortical, spinal, and cortical-conditioned spinal excitability(More)

BACKGROUND The Dental Bureau of California is considering alternative pathways to initial licensure, and, in 2008, the Bureau contracted with Comira to explore the feasibility of those pathways. There have been many concerns about existing clinical examinations, particularly in terms of validity of the content tested and reliability of the judgments made(More)
Cytomegalovirus (CMV) colitis may cause symptoms and signs identical to those of idiopathic inflammatory bowel disease. Although difficult to diagnose with certainty, the histological finding of cytomegalovirus inclusions in tissue from a case of suspected inflammatory bowel disease is strongly suggestive. CMV colitis is an entity almost entirely confined(More)
