Characterization of magnetic nanoparticles as contrast agents and their application for quantitative magnetic susceptibility monitoring of the waterflooding of heavy oil in real timeDownload
Waterflooding is one enhanced oil recovery process used in heavy oil reservoirs such as at Cold Lake in North-Eastern Alberta. However, little has been published in terms of imaging heavy oil waterfloods, mainly due to the similar densities of water and heavy oil, which makes it difficult to...
Effect of age of the intermediate host Tribolium confusum (Coleoptera) on infection by Hymenolepis diminuta (Cestoda).Download
A cross-sectional study of 27 cohorts of Tribolium confusum aged 2–78 wk was done to examine effects of host age on exposure to eggs of Hymenolepis diminuta under standardized conditions. Pre-exposure, fasting, and postexposure mortality were low, sex ratio was equal, and fecundity of hosts was...
Evaluation of potential meteorological triggers of large landslides in sensitive glaciomarine clay, eastern CanadaDownload
Heavy rains spread over some interval preceding large landslides in sensitive glaciomarine clay in eastern Canada are often noted as a triggering or causative factor in case studies or research reports for individual landslides, although the quantity or duration of the triggering rain event has...
Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women in the developed world. The disease results from the combined effects of genetic, environmental, reproductive and lifestyle risk factors. Germline DNA variations identified thus far by linkage and genome-wide association studies (GWASs) account...
Hymenolepis diminuta (Cestoda) induces changes in expression of select genes of Tribolium confusum (Coleoptera)Download
The flour beetle Tribolium confusum is a common experimental intermediate host for the tapeworm Hymenolepis diminuta, but while many aspects of their host-parasite interactions have been determined to have genetic basis, the genes involved have not been identified. In this paper, we report on the...
Identification and Characterization of a Novel Premenopausal Breast Cancer Locus and Insights into Copy Number Variations for Disease Predisposition and PrognosisDownload
Breast cancer is a complex multifactorial disease with the interplay of genetic, environmental and lifestyle factors contributing to the disease risk. Studies based on twins estimated that ~30% of the risk is due to genetic factors. High and moderate penetrant mutations along with low penetrance...
This thesis studies the intrinsic disorder effects and the electro- and magnetotransport properties of some perovskite manganites. Recently reported colossal electro-resistance (ER) (a relative change in resistance with electric field /current ) in manganites, analogous to their respective...
Parasite aggregation is a population-based metric in which many hosts harbour few parasites but some hosts are infected by a large number of parasites. The causes of aggregation are primarily attributed to heterogeneity in host exposure and susceptibility. However, parasites can exert numerous...
