Engineering Bacillus megaterium for production of functional intracellular materials
(BioMed Central, 2017-11-22)
Background: Over the last 10-15 years, a technology has been developed to engineer bacterial polyhydroxybutyrate (PHB) inclusions as functionalized beads, for applications such as vaccines, diagnostics and enzyme immobilization. ...
Collagen Fibril Intermolecular Spacing Changes with 2-Propanol: A Mechanism for Tissue Stiffness.
(American Chemical Society, 2017-08-30)
Materials composed primarily of collagen are important as surgical scaffolds and other medical devices and require flexibility. However, the factors that control the suppleness and flexibility of these materials are not ...
API evolution and compatibility: A data corpus and tool evaluation
The development of software components with independent release cycles is nowadays widely supported by multiple languages and frameworks. A critical feature of any such platform is to safeguard composition by ensuring ...
XCorpus – An executable corpus of java programs
Empirical studies on code require standardized datasets of significant size extracted from real-world programs in order to be reproducible and generalisable. We argue that there is a need for such data sets that are ...
An empirical analysis of the cost of rearing dairy heifers from birth to first calving and the time taken to repay these costs.
Rearing quality dairy heifers is essential to maintain herds by replacing culled cows. Information on the key factors influencing the cost of rearing under different management systems is, however, limited and many farmers ...
A New Zealand national outreach program – Inspiring young girls in humanitarian engineering
The representation of women in the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education and professions fall far short of their representation in other various disciplines. Finding ways to increase underrepresented ...
The influence of water, lanolin, urea, proline, paraffin and fatliquor on collagen D-spacing in leather
(The Royal Society of Chemistry, 2017-08-21)
Water interacts with collagen to alter the structure at the fibrillar scale and therefore the mechanical properties of collagen. Humectants or moisturizers also alter the mechanical properties and fibril structure. The ...
