Placebo can enhance creativity

PLoS One
PMCID: 5593173
PMID: 28892513
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0182466

[…] the 100 players of Ref [] plus the 45 players in the group tested (control or placebo), plus the number of exploitation gallery shapes that did not fall into any of the SCMs. The out-of-the-boxness (OB) score for each participant was the fraction of exploitation gallery shapes that lie outside of the standard set of SCMs defined by the 100 players of Ref []. To test the robustness of this result, […]


Value of Ultrasonography in the Diagnosis of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome: Correlation with Electrophysiological Abnormalities and Clinical Severity

PMCID: 3958577
PMID: 24653800
DOI: 10.3340/jkns.2014.55.2.78

[…] The CSA and PB of US measurements, and Hi-Ob scale appeared to show a significant positive correlation and as the Hi-Ob score increased, the CSA and PB was increased (r=0.45: p<0.001, r=0.37: p<0.001) (). The increase in electrophysiological severity, and the CSA and PB of US measurements also showed a significant c […]


Computational approaches to selecting and optimising targets for structural biology

[…] ental work. As noted above, successful progression of a selected target through to the stage of diffraction-quality crystals is a critical consideration. Algorithms to estimate this include XANNpred, OB-Score, ParCrys, XtalPred, PPCpred and PDPredictor . Approaches focused on key stages of the structural biology pipeline have also been developed, including predictors of soluble expression (e.g. PR […]


The Scottish Structural Proteomics Facility: targets, methods and outputs

[…] essible and has been used extensively within the SSPF as well as by external users world-wide. In addition to TarO, three techniques for crystallisation propensity prediction were also developed. The OB-Score [] combines hydrophobicity and predicted pI within a statistical framework, the ParCrys algorithm combines more features of the sequence [] while XANNpred (manuscript submitted) is a machine- […]


TarO: a target optimisation system for structural biology

Nucleic Acids Res
PMCID: 2447720
PMID: 18385152
DOI: 10.1093/nar/gkn141

[…] nce may influence crystallisation propensity, and alternative homologues may be examined since protein families commonly have members with a wide range of estimated crystallisation propensity (). The OB-Score (), ParCrys () and Hydrophobicity/pI clustering () are all harnessed by TarO to estimate crystallisation propensity, and so guide the evaluation of homologues. Proteins with transmembrane reg […]
