Revealing the hidden bacterial world in ticks

By • June 16th, 2016

Ticks are one of the most important vectors of disease affecting humans and animals. A quarter of world-wide pandemics over the last decade have been attributed to vector-borne disease, and controlling these emerging infectious diseases is one of the most important objectives of global economies. Despite this, little is known about the pathogens transmitted bymore…

Quantum-mediated Freezing and Melting of Hydrogen Isotopes in Nanopores

By • June 22nd, 2015

A detailed understanding of freezing and melting of confined pure hydrogen isotopes and their mixtures at finite temperatures are essential for many problems in nanoscale science, including nucleation of high-pressure quantum crystals and atomic or molecular separation. This project aims to develop fundamental knowledge and expertise in freezing/melting of hydrogen isotope mixtures in carbon nanotubesmore…

Uncovering the microbiome of Australian ticks

By • June 22nd, 2015

The identification of emerging infectious diseases is of great medical and veterinary importance. Ticks (Acari: Ixodida) transmit a greater variety of pathogenic microorganisms than any other arthropod group, and are among the most important vectors of disease affecting humans and companion animals. Despite this there is little known about the pathogens ticks transmit to peoplemore…

A First-Principle Investigation into Combustion Chemistry of Novel Brominated Flame Retardants.

By • June 19th, 2015

Aims This submission deals with providing an atomic-based insight into chemical phenomena pertinent to the environmental transformations and combustion/fire reactions encountered in the life cycle of a group of brominated hydrocarbons; called collectively novel brominated flame retardants (NBFRs). Significance and Innovation As thermal treatment and recycling activities represents mainstream strategies for disposal of materials ladenmore…
