    • Score tests based on a finite mixture model of Markov processes under intermittent observation 

      Jiang, Shu; Cook, Richard J. (Wiley, 2019-07-20)
      A mixture model is described, which accommodates different Markov processes governing disease progression in a finite set of latent classes. We give special attention to the setting in which individuals are examined ...

      Lawless, Jerald F. (Oxford Journals, 2015-11-27)
      Response-dependent sampling is widely used in settings where certain variables are expensive to obtain. Estimation has been thoroughly investigated but recent applications have emphasized tests of association for expensive ...
    • Scrappy: Using Scrap Material as Infill to Make Fabrication More Sustainable 

      Wall, Ludwig Wilhelm; Jacobson, Alec; Vogel, Daniel; Schneider, Oliver (ACM Press, 2021-05-06)
      We present a software system for fused deposition modelling 3D printing that replaces infill material with scrap to reduce material and energy consumption. Example scrap objects include unused 3D prints from prototyping ...
    • Searching for a DNAzyme version of the leadzyme 

      Saran, Runjhun; Chen, Qingyun; Liu, Juewen (Springer, 2015-10-12)
      The leadzyme refers to a small ribozyme that cleaves a RNA substrate in the presence of Pb2+. In an optimized form, the enzyme strand contains only two unpaired nucleotides. Most RNA-cleaving DNAzymes are much longer. Two ...
    • Searching for a perceived gaze direction using eye tracking 

      Itier, Roxane J.; Palancia, Adam (Association for Research in Visison and Ophthalmology, 2011-02-01)
      The purpose of the current study was to use eye tracking to better understand the “stare-in-the-crowd effect”—the notion that direct gaze is more easily detected than averted gaze in a crowd of opposite-gaze distractors. ...
    • Searching for the Sanctuary of Leukothea in Kolchis 

      Coskun, Altay (Franz Steiner Verlag, 2020-12-01)
      Strabo mentions a sanctuary of Leukothea, together with an Oracle of Phrixos, in the Moschike somewhere in Kolchis (11.2.17f. 498f.C). O. Lordkipanidze (1972) suggested a location in modern Vani at the confluence of the ...
    • Secure Comics: An Interactive Comic Series for Improving Cyber Security and Privacy 

      Zhang-Kennedy, Leah; Biddle, Robert; Chiasson, Sonia (Scienceopen, 2017-07)
      We designed, illustrated, and developed Secure Comics, an online educational interactive comic series about cyber security and privacy. The three-part comic was evaluated with adults and children, and had positive effects ...
    • Seeing Double at Memorial University: Two WorldCat Local Usability Studies 

      Fahey, Sue; Gordon, Shannon; Rose, Crystal (The Editorial Board of Partnership: The Canadian Journal of Library and Information Practice and Research, 2011)
      Obtaining user feedback is valuable yet often overlooked, so when Memorial University Libraries launched OCLC’s WorldCat Local discovery tool for Fall 2010, usability testing was a logical next step. Two branches, each ...
    • Seeing Double at Memorial University: Two WorldCat Local Usability Studies 

      Fahey, Sue; Gordon, Shannon; Rose, Crystal (2011-05-01)
      Presentation slides as presented at the Atlantic Provinces Library Association (APLA) Conference, 2011, St John's Newfoundland. Provides an overview of a usability study conducted on WorldCat Local (WCL), a catalogue for ...
    • Segregation of chain ends to the surface of a polymer melt: effect of surface profile versus chain discreteness 

      Mahmoudi, Pendar; Matsen, Mark (Springer, 2016)
      Silberberg has argued that the surface of a polymer melt behaves like a reflecting boundary on the random-walk statistics of the polymers. Although this is approximately true, independent studies have shown that violations ...
    • Selecting the Selection Tool 

      Fahey, Sue; Gordon, Shannon (2010-06-01)

    • Selection models for efficient two-phase design of family studies 

      Zhong, Yujie; Cook, Richard (John Wiley & Sons, Ltd., 2021-01-30)

    • A Selective Na+ Aptamer Dissected by Sensitized Tb3+ Luminescence 

      Zhou, Wenhu; Ding, Jinsong; Liu, Juewen (Wiley, 2016-08-17)
      A previous study of two RNA-cleaving DNAzymes, NaA43 and Ce13d, revealed the possibility of a common Na+ aptamer motif. Because Na+ binding to DNA is a fundamental biochemical problem, the interaction between Ce13d and Na+ ...
    • Selectively leaching the iron-removed bauxite residues with phosphoric acid for enrichment of rare earth elements
