Using "omics" approaches to study anaerobic hydrocarbon biodegradation by microbes indigenous to oil sands tailings pondsDownload
In oil sands tailings ponds, methanogenesis is driven in part by the degradation of hydrocarbons in residual solvents used as a diluent during bitumen extraction, such as naphtha. Alkanes constitute a large proportion of these unrecovered hydrocarbons in mature fine tailings (MFT). Methanogenic...
Using 1D and 2D Nanomaterials in Halide Perovskite Solar Cells to Enhance Light Harvesting and Charge CollectionDownload
The increasing global energy demand and scarcity of available energy resources have spurred research efforts to find cheap and abundant alternative energy sources. Solar energy is the inexhaustible renewable energy resource that has the potential to supply more than 15 TW/annum of carbon-neutral...
Using 1H-NMR based metabolomics to investigate the pathological consequences of mitochondrial disease and human rabies infectionDownload
Mitochondrial diseases encompass a wide range of clinical phenotypes. The etiology of these disorders is extremely complex; mitochondria are central to energy metabolism and dysfunction can have a profound effect on global metabolism. The original objective of this thesis was to use 1H-NMR based...
This thesis investigated the feasibility of using the Dedicated Short Range Communication (5.9 GHz) protocol as a vehicular wireless system for transmitting elderly drivers‘ vital signs in medical emergencies. Existing vehicular communication systems, physiological monitors, and low-power...
Using Adapted Primary Literature to Test the Understanding of Concepts of Evidence in Chemistry held by First Year University Undergraduate StudentsDownload
Adapted primary literature (APL) is a genre which still retains the canonical form and authentic results of primary literature, but is made readable and understandable for a target population which in this study consists of first-year university undergraduate students. The rationale underlying...
Using Alternate Omega-3 Polyunsaturated Fatty Acid Sources for the Enrichment of Broiler Meat and Table EggsDownload
A series of experiments was conducted to explore the potential of including novel sources of omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (n-3 PUFA) in broiler and laying hen diets. Camelina cake (CC), the co-product remaining after pressing of oil from camelina seed for biofuel production, was fed to...
Giving reasons for justifying the decisions made by classification models has received less attention in recent artificial intelligence breakthroughs than improving the accuracy of the models. Recently, AI researchers are paying more attention to filling this gap, leading to the introduction of...
Automated essay scoring (AES) is a developing technology that is increasingly recognized as a potential strategy for managing the challenges associated with testing and scoring written assessments. The importance of using open-ended writing assessments to facilitate higher-level thinking,...
Using Automated Procedures to Score Written Essays in Persian: An Application of the Multilingual BERT SystemDownload
The automated scoring of student essays is now recognized as a significant development in both the research and practice of educational testing. The majority of the published studies on automated essay scoring (AES) focus on outcomes in English. Studies on multilingual AES—meaning languages other...
