Human Rights and the Dignity of Basic Human Needs
The inextricability of the concept of dignity from the discourse on human rights suggests that the articulation of rights in terms of human dignity has both a cross-cultural resonance, and an intuitive appeal. Each of...
Protein Arginine Methyltransferase Expression, Localization, and Activity During Disuse-induced Skeletal Muscle Plasticity
Protein arginine methyltransferase 1 (PRMT1), PRMT4 (also known as
co-activator-associated arginine methyltransferase 1; CARM1), and PRMT5 are
critical components of a diverse set of intracellular functions. Despite the limited
Evaluation of Diffuse Reflectance Spectroscopy and Fluorescence Spectroscopy for Detection of Glioma Brain Tumors
Imaging instruments are required for accurate tumor resection during neurosurgery, especially in the case of glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) - the most common and aggressive malignant glioma. However, current intraoperative imaging techniques f...
On Fractionally-Supervised Classification: Weight Selection and Extension to the Multivariate t-Distribution
Recent work on fractionally-supervised classification (FSC), an approach that allows classification to be carried out with a fractional amount of weight given to the unla- belled points, is extended in two important ways. First,...
Bioactive Titania Colloidal Particles: Preparation, Characterization and Applications
<p>Photocatalytic TiO2, used for oxidizing organic compounds and biological entities, has
been extensively studied. However, biomolecules conjugated to photocatalytic TiO2
colloidal particles and their applications have rarely been reporte...
MacSphere is·McMaster University’s Institutional Repository (IR). The purpose of an IR is to bring together all of a University's research under one umbrella, with an aim to preserve and provide access to that research. The research and scholarly output included in MacSphere has been selected and deposited by the individual university departments and centres on campus.
To contribute to McMaster's Institutional Repository, please sign on to MacSphere with your MAC ID. If you have any questions, please contact the Office of Scholarly Communication.
Students wishing to deposit their PhD or Masters thesis, please follow the instructions outlined by the School of Graduate Studies.
