• #### Conflicting rights: English adoption law and the implementation of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child ﻿

(Jordan Publishing, 2013-04-02)
The welfare of the relevant child became the 'paramount' consideration in adoption decisions as a result of the Adoption and Children Act 2002. This ostensibly brought English law into line with Article 21 of the UN ...
• #### The Conflicting Voices in Tony Harrison's Poetry ﻿

(Association of Cambridge Studies, 2009)
• #### Conformal growth of $\textit{Arabidopsis}$ leaves ﻿

(Elsevier, 2016-08-16)
I show that Arabidopsis leaf growth can be described with good precision by a conformal map, where expansion is locally isotropic (the same in all directions) but the amount of expansion can vary with position. Data obtained ...
• #### Conformational flexibility and molecular interactions of an archaeal homologue of the Shwachman-Bodian-Diamond syndrome protein ﻿

(2009-05-19)
Abstract Background Defects in the human Shwachman-Bodian-Diamond syndrome (SBDS) protein-coding gene lead to the autosomal recessive disorder characterised by bone marrow dysfunction, exocrine pancreatic insufficiency and ...
• #### The confounded effects of age and exposure history in response to influenza vaccination ﻿

(Elsevier, 2015-12-05)
Numerous studies have explored whether the antibody response to influenza vaccination in elderly adults is as strong as it is in young adults. Results vary, but tend to indicate lower post-vaccination titers (antibody ...
• #### Confucian education in a Buddhist environment: Medieval manuscripts and imprints of the Mengqiu ﻿

(Taylor & Francis, 2015-09-11)
Although most of the surviving collections of medieval manuscripts and imprints are of Buddhist nature, they normally include a smaller number of other types of material, such as primers and didactic texts used for educational ...
• #### Confucianism versus Constitutionalism ﻿

(Association of Cambridge Studies, 2007)
• #### Confucius and Laozi at the altar: reconsidering a Tangut manuscript ﻿

(Taylor & Francis, 2016-11)
In the Russian collection of Tangut material there is a manuscript which describes a meeting between Confucius and an old sage. It is generally assumed that it is a translation of a Chinese work but attempts at identifying ...
• #### Congenital imprinting disorders: EUCID.net - a network to decipher their aetiology and to improve the diagnostic and clinical care ﻿

(2015-03-14)
Abstract Imprinting disorders (IDs) are a group of eight rare but probably underdiagnosed congenital diseases affecting growth, development and metabolism. They are caused by similar molecular changes affecting ...
• #### Conglomeration of kilometre-sized planetesimals ﻿

(IOP, 2015-02-25)
We study the efficiency of forming large bodies, starting from a sea of equal-sized planetesimals. This is likely one of the earlier steps of planet formation and relevant for the formation of the asteroid belt, the Kuiper ...
• #### Conjugated polyelectrolyte nano field emission adlayers ﻿

(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2016-05-09)
Here we report on a straightforward and rapid means of enhancing the field electron emission performance of nascent vertically aligned multi-walled carbon nanotubes by introducing a polar zwitterionic conjugated polyelectrolyte ...
• #### Conjugated Small Molecule for Efficient Hole Transport in High-Performance p-i-n Type Perovskite Solar Cells ﻿

(2017-01-01)
© 2017 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim. The π-conjugated organic small molecule 4,4′-cyclohexylidenebis[N,N-bis(4-methylphenyl) benzenamine] (TAPC) has been explored as an efficient hole transport material to ...
• #### Connecting Berezinskii-Kosterlitz-Thouless and BEC Phase Transitions by Tuning Interactions in a Trapped Gas ﻿

(APS, 2015-05-26)
We study the critical point for the emergence of coherence in a harmonically trapped two-dimensional Bose gas with tunable interactions. Over a wide range of interaction strengths we find excellent agreement with the ...
• #### Connecting Defects and Amorphization in UiO-66 and MIL-140 Metal-organic Frameworks: A Combined Experimental and Computational Study ﻿

(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2015-12-02)
The mechanism and products of the structural collapse of the metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) UiO-66, MIL-140B and MIL-140C upon ball-milling are investigated through solid state 13C NMR and pair distribution function (PDF) ...
• #### Connecting gene expression data from connectivity map and in silico target predictions for small molecule mechanism-of-action analysis ﻿

(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2014-09-16)
Integrating gene expression profiles with certain proteins can improve our understanding of the fundamental mechanisms in protein–ligand binding. This paper spotlights the integration of gene expression data and target ...
• #### Connecting observations of student and teacher learning: an examination of dialogic processes in Lesson Study discussions in mathematics ﻿

(Springer, 2016-01-20)
Lesson Study is rapidly becoming one of the most adopted models of teacher professional development worldwide. In this paper, we examine the teachers' discussions that are an integral part of the Lesson Study research ...
• #### The Connection Between Galaxy Environment and the Luminosity Function Slopes of Star-Forming Regions ﻿

(Oxford University Press, 2016-08-12)
We present the first study of GALEX far ultra-violet (FUV) luminosity functions of individual star-forming regions within a sample of 258 nearby galaxies spanning a large range in total stellar mass and star formation ...
• #### The Connection of the Stakeholder Cooperation Intensity and Team Agility ﻿

(IEEE, 2014)
Today, new software development meth-ods and technologies are being used to create new sys-tems, applications and services in a wide range of in-dustries. Especially agile software development has been gaining ground among ...
• #### Connective auxin transport in the shoot facilitates communication between shoot apices ﻿

(PLOS, 2016-04-27)
The bulk polar movement of the plant signaling molecule auxin through the stem is a long-recognized but poorly understood phenomenon. Here we show that the highly polar, high conductance polar auxin transport stream (PATS) ...
• #### Connective constants and height functions for Cayley graphs ﻿

(American Mathematical Society, 2017-03-31)
The connective constant $μ$($G$) of an infinite transitive graph $G$ is the exponential growth rate of the number of self-avoiding walks from a given origin. In earlier work of Grimmett and Li, a locality theorem was proved ...
