• #### Assembling the Mechanosphere: Monod, Althusser, Deleuze and Guattari ﻿

(Edinburgh University Press, 2016-10-01)
While the ‘mechanosphere’ is a concept mentioned only six times in A Thousand Plateaus, it is fundamental to the way Deleuze and Guattari construct their geophilosophy. In this article, I argue that the mechanosphere solves ...
• #### Assembly of embryonic and extraembryonic stem cells to mimic embryogenesis in vitro ﻿

(AAAS, 2017-04-14)
Mammalian embryogenesis requires intricate interactions between embryonic and extraembryonic tissues to orchestrate and coordinate morphogenesis with changes in developmental potential. Here, we combined mouse embryonic ...
• #### Assembly-level analysis of heterogeneous Th–Pu PWR fuel ﻿

(Elsevier, 2017-02-01)
This study compares homogeneous and heterogeneous thorium-plutonium (Th-Pu) fuel assemblies (with high Pu content – 20 wt%), and examines whether there is an increase in Pu incineration in the latter. A seed-blanket ...
• #### An assessement of global energy resource economic potentials ﻿

(Department of Land Economy, University of Cambridge, 2012-03-20)
This paper presents an assessment of global economic energy potentials for all major natural energy resources. This work is based on both an extensive literature review and calculations based onto natural resource assessment ...
• #### Assessing and monitoring intratumor heterogeneity in glioblastoma: how far has multimodal imaging come? ﻿

(Future Medicine, 2015-10-26)
Glioblastoma demonstrates imaging features of intratumor heterogeneity that result from underlying heterogeneous biological properties. This stems from variations in cellular behavior that result from genetic mutations ...
• #### Assessing clarity and erasability of commercially available pens for surgical site marking: a comparative study in human volunteers ﻿

(BioMed Central, 2016)
Background: Marking the surgical site is a well-established part of pre-operative protocol and errors in marking have been implicated in wrong site surgery incidents and are a significant patient safety issue. There are ...
• #### Assessing Commitment and Reporting Fidelity to a Text Message-Based Participatory Surveillance in Rural Western Uganda ﻿

(Public Library of Science, 2016-06-09)
Syndromic surveillance, the collection of symptom data from individuals prior to or in the absence of diagnosis, is used throughout the developed world to provide rapid indications of outbreaks and unusual patterns of ...
• #### Assessing DNA methylation in the developing human intestinal epithelium - potential link to Inflammatory Bowel Disease ﻿

(Nature Publishing Group, 2015-09-16)
DNA methylation is one of the major epigenetic mechanisms implicated in regulating cellular development and cell-type specific gene expression. Here, we performed simultaneous genome-wide DNA methylation and gene expression ...
• #### Assessing dynamic functional connectivity in heterogeneous samples ﻿

(2017-08-15)
• #### Assessing environmental features related to mental health: a reliability study of visual streetscape images ﻿

(BioMed Central, 2014-10-22)
$\textbf{Background:}$ An association between depressive symptoms and features of built environment has been reported in the literature. A remaining research challenge is the development of methods to efficiently capture ...
• #### Assessing forecast uncertainties in a VECX model for Switzerland: an exercise in forecast combination across models and observation windows ﻿

(Faculty of Economics, 2007-09)
model for Switzerland. Forecast uncertainty is evaluated in three different dimensions. First, we investigate the effect on forecasting performance of averaging over forecasts from different models. Second, we look at ...
• #### Assessing global dietary habits: a comparison of national estimates from the FAO and the Global Dietary Database ﻿

(American Society for Nutrition, 2015-03-18)
Background: Accurate data on dietary habits are crucial for understanding impacts on disease and informing policy priorities. Nation-specific food balance sheets from the United Nations FAO provided the only available ...
• #### Assessing interactions between the associations of common genetic susceptibility variants, reproductive history and body mass index with breast cancer risk in the Breast Cancer Association Consortium: a combined case-control study ﻿

(2010-12-31)
Abstract Introduction Several common breast cancer genetic susceptibility variants have recently been identified. We aimed to determine how these variants combine with a subset of other known risk factors to influence ...
• #### Assessing Interbank Connectedness Using Transmission Decomposition Techniques: an Application to Eurozone SIFIs ﻿

(Faculty of Economics, 2014-11-28)
This paper aims to disentangle the impact of multiple transmission channels in interbank connectedness. We use the identification properties of a structural vector autoregression with a multivariate GARCH-in-mean structure ...
• #### Assessing Oxidative Stress in Tumors by Measuring the Rate of Hyperpolarized [1-$^{13}$C] Dehydroascorbic Acid Reduction Using $^{13}$C Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy ﻿

(American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, 2017-02-03)
Rapid cancer cell proliferation promotes the production of reducing equivalents, which counteract the effects of relatively high levels of reactive oxygen species (ROS). ROS levels increase in response to chemotherapy and ...
• #### Assessing subgroup effects with binary data: can the use of different effect measures lead to different conclusions? ﻿

(2005-04-29)
Abstract Background In order to use the results of a randomised trial, it is necessary to understand whether the overall observed benefit or harm applies to all individuals, or whether some subgroups receive more benefit ...
• #### Assessing Symbiodinium diversity in scleractinian corals via next-generation sequencing-based genotyping of the ITS2 rDNA region ﻿

(Wiley, 2014-08-18)
The persistence of coral reef ecosystems relies on the symbiotic relationship between scleractinian corals and intracellular, photosynthetic dinoflagellates in the genus Symbiodinium. Genetic evidence indicates that these ...
• #### Assessing the activity of faults in continental interiors: Palaeoseismic insights from SE Kazakhstan ﻿

(Elsevier, 2017-02-01)
The presence of fault scarps is a first-order criterion for identifying active faults. Yet the preservation of these features depends on the recurrence interval between surface rupturing events, combined with the rates of ...
