    Chambers, Alex K.; Jones, H. G.; Wilkinson, Toby; Worgan, Hilary J.; Warr, A.; Huson, Kathryn M.; McEwan, Neil R. (SIVAR https://cms.sivarnet.it/it/lar, 2018-12-31)
    CHAMBERS, A.K., JONES, H.G., WILKINSON, T., WORGAN, H.J., A. WARR, A., HUSON, K.M. and MCEWAN, N.R. 2018. The bacterial pedome associated with foot pathologies in sheep: a case study. Large animal review [online], 24(6), pages 243-246. Available from: https://cms.sivarnet.it/it/lar
    Hoof lameness is considered to be a major health issue in sheep, and can impact on both animal welfare and production of livestock. However the causes, although generally assumed to have a microbiological basis, are poorly ...
  • Correlation between bacterial G+C content, genome size and G+C content of associated plasmids and bacteriophages. 

    Almpanis, Apostolos; Swain, Martin; Gatherer, Derek; McEwan, Neil R. (Microbiology Society Available from: https://doi.org/10.1099/mgen.0.000168, 2018-04-10)
    AALMPANIS, A., SWAIN, M., GATHERER, D. and MCEWAN, N. 2018. Correlation between bacterial G+C content, genome size and G+C content of associated plasmids and bacteriophages. Microbial genomics [online], 4(4), article ID 168. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1099/mgen.0.000168
    Based on complete bacterial genome sequence data, we demonstrate a correlation between bacterial chromosome length and G+C content of the genome, with longer genomes having higher G+C contents. The correlation value decreases ...

    This literature review deals with Epizootic rabbit enteropathy (ERE), a condition which is potentially fatal to infected animals and continues to threaten the rabbit production industry internationally. The documented ...
  • An investigation and examination of the levels and types of bacterial contamination on the surface of clean room operators' garments. 

    Smith, Laurie McKenzie (Robert Gordon University School of Pharmacy and Life Sciences, 2018-03-01)
    SMITH, L.M. 2018. An investigation and examination of the levels and types of bacterial contamination on the surface of clean room operators' garments. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.
    The contamination of sterile pharmaceutical products is a serious event which has in the worst case scenario led to patient death. Operators are the primary source of clean room contamination, with the majority of their ...
