    • Detection of Rare Antimicrobial Resistance Profiles by Active and Passive Surveillance Approaches 

      Mather, Alison E.; Reeve, Richard; Mellor, Dominic J.; Matthews, Louise; Reid-Smith, Richard J.; Dutil, Lucie; Haydon, Daniel T. et al. (Public Library of Science, 2016-07-08)
      Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) surveillance systems are generally not specifically designed to detect emerging resistances and usually focus primarily on resistance to individual drugs. Evaluating the diversity of resistance, ...
    • Detection of RNA structures in porcine EST data and related mammals
