Plasmodium falciparum drug resistant genotypes - SUMUT study, North Sumatera, 2015

Colin Sutherland & Inke Nadia Lubis
A dataset produced as part of the SUMUT study, investigating plasmodium falciparum drug resistant genotypes. It consists of two tables: (1) a "full data" table that contains individual-level information on 404 individuals who were found to be positive, either by pfmdr1 nested PCR or 18S rDNA nested PCR; and (2) a "cohort data" table that contains information on 195 individuals positive by microscopy and randomised to receive either dihydroartemisinin-piperaquine (DP) or artemether-lumefantrine (AL).

Preparation of bisDOPO-NH2-POSS flame retardant and its application to plywood using modified urea-formaldehyde resin

Mingyu Wen, Junxian Xu, Jiazhi Zhu, Yang Liu, Chao Deng, Junyou Shi & Heejun Park
A new type of polyhedral oligomeric silsesquioxanes bisDOPO-NH2-POSS flame retardant consisting of one polyhedral oligomeric silsesquioxane (POSS), two units of 9,10-dihydro-9-oxa-10-phosphaphenanthrene-10-oxide (DOPO) and reactive –NH2 groups, was synthesized and characterized by FTIR, 1H NMR, and 31P NMR. It was applied to modified conventional environmentally friendly E0 grade urea formaldehyde (UF) resin to prepare flame-retardant plywood. Two other POSS structure flame retardants were used for comparison. The results showed that the addition of bisDOPO-NH2-POSS flame retardant...

IMPROVING EXPLOSIVE BODY CAPACITY IN FEMALE SHORT TRACK SPEED SKATERS

ABSTRACT Introduction The peculiar characteristics of short track speed skating should be integrated into the psychology of competitions; it is considered that elite athletes engaged in this particular sport should have a healthy psychic condition. Objective Investigate the explosive power of female speed skaters in short track speed skating. Methods 10 key athletes from the national short track speed skating team were selected, and explosive power was tested by T-test, hexagonal test, and pro sensitivity...

Emily Webb
This dataset contains survey responses collected from 1,330 young people from South Africa, Uganda and Zimbabwe who took part in the CHAPS social science quantitative survey. The primary purpose of the survey was to investigate demographics and socio-behavioural risk factors related to HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) preferences amongst young people.

The importance of fine-scale predictors of wild boar habitat use in an isolated population

Sonny Bacigalupo, Yu-Mei Ruby Chang, Linda Dixon, Simon Gubbins, Adam Kucharski & Julian Drewe
Predicting the likelihood of wildlife presence at potential wildlife-livestock interfaces is challenging. These interfaces are usually relatively small geographical areas where landscapes show large variation over small distances. Models of wildlife distribution based on coarse data over wide geographical ranges may not be representative of these interfaces. High-resolution data can help identify fine scale predictors of wildlife habitat use at a local scale and provide more accurate predictions of species habitat use. These data may...

From Black Box to Shining Spotlight: Using Random Forest Prediction Intervals to Illuminate the Impact of Assumptions in Linear Regression

Andrew J. Sage, Yang Liu & Joe Sato
We introduce a pair of Shiny web applications that allow users to visualize random forest prediction intervals alongside those produced by linear regression models. The apps are designed to help undergraduate students deepen their understanding of the role that assumptions play in statistical modeling by comparing and contrasting intervals produced by regression models with those produced by more flexible algorithmic techniques. We describe the mechanics of each approach, illustrate the features of the apps, provide...

The pre-surgical factors that determine the decision to proceed to resection in children diagnosed with high-risk neuroblastoma in a resource limited setting

Jaques van Heerden, Mariana Kruger, Tonya Marianne Esterhuizen, Anel van Zyl, Marc Hendricks, Sharon Cox, Hansraj Mangray, Janet Poole, Gita Naidu, Ané Büchner, Mariza de Villiers, Jan du Plessis, Barry van Emmenes, Elmarie Matthews, Yashoda Manickchund & Derek Stanley Harrison
Surgical control has prognostic value in neuroblastoma (NB). Advanced NB is common at diagnosis in South Africa. We investigated the pre-surgery factors that influenced decisions to perform surgical resections. We included 204 patients with high-risk NB from a national retrospective study, who completed induction chemotherapy between 2000 and 2016. The median age was 32.4 months (IQR 15.1 − 53.5 months). Primary tumor resection was achieved in 76.9% of patients between 0-18 months of age, 51.8%...
