  • Transmission of methicillin-resistant $\textit{Staphylococcus aureus}$ in long-term care facilities and their related healthcare networks 

    Harrison, Ewan M.; Ludden, Catherine; Brodrick, Hayley J.; Blane, Beth; Brennan, Gráinne; Morris, Dearbháile; Coll, Francesc et al. (BioMed Central, 2016-10-03)
    $\textbf{Background:}$ Long-term care facilities (LTCF) are potential reservoirs for methicillin-resistant $\textit{Staphylococcus aureus}$ (MRSA), control of which may reduce MRSA transmission and infection elsewhere in ...

    $\textbf{Objective:}$ To investigate the association between student performance in undergraduate objective structured clinical examinations (OSCEs) and the examination schedule to which they were assigned to undertake ...
  • Specific Roles of XRCC4 Paralogs PAXX and XLF during V(D)J Recombination 

    Lescale, Chloé; Hasse, Hélène Lenden; Blackford, Andrew N.; Balmus, Gabriel; Bianchi, Joy J.; Yu, Wei; Bacoccina, Léa et al. (Elsevier (Cell Press), 2016-09-02)
    Paralog of XRCC4 and XLF (PAXX) is a member of the XRCC4 superfamily and plays a role in nonhomologous end-joining (NHEJ), a DNA repair pathway critical for lymphocyte antigen receptor gene assembly. Here, we find that the ...
  • Measuring the nonlinear refractive index of graphene using the optical Kerr effect method 

    Dremetsika, E; Dlubak, B; Gorza, SP; Ciret, C; Martin, MB; Hofmann, S; Seneor, P et al. (2016-07-15)
    © 2016 Optical Society of America.By means of the ultrafast optical Kerr effect method coupled to optical heterodyne detection (OHD-OKE), we characterize the third-order nonlinear response of graphene and compare it to ...
