Sanitary risk inspections of shallow wells, boreholes and springs in Kisumu, Kenya in 2014

J. Okotto-Okotto, S. Pedley, L.G. Okotto, H. Price & J. Wright
This dataset contains the results of a sanitary risk inspection for different groundwater sources in Kisumu, Kenya. A total of 70 groundwater sources were surveyed between February and March 2014. The survey took the form of an observation checklist that identified contamination hazards at well heads and in their immediate surroundings. Data on well depth, electro-conductivity, pH and temperature were also collected. The data were collected as part of the Groundwater2030 project, which aims to...

Socio-economic survey of domestic groundwater handling and use for source customers in Kisumu, Kenya in 2014

L.G. Okotto, J. Okotto-Okotto, H. Price, S. Pedley & J. Wright
This dataset contains the anonymised results of a survey of customers who buy groundwater for consumption in Kisumu, Kenya. Data includes information on the amount of water bought and ways in which this water was used and handled, as well as their use of water from other sources. Data about assets and services, including access to food, are also included. The surveys were carried out during February and March 2014 and include data from 137...

Groundwater microbiology and chemistry of shallow wells, boreholes and springs in Kisumu, Kenya in 2014

S. Pedley, J. Okotto-Okotto, L. Okotto, H. Price & J. Wright
This dataset contains free residual chlorine, turbidity, nitrate, chloride, sulphate, fluoride, phosphate and thermatolerant coliform concentrations in groundwater from a variety of sources within two neighbourhoods of Kisumu, Kenya. A total of 73 groundwater sources were tested between February and March 2014. The data were collected as part of the Groundwater2030 project, which aims to reduce the health problems that result from consumption of contaminated groundwater in urban areas of Africa. The project was co-ordinated...

Data from: In vivo dynamics of skeletal muscle Dystrophin in zebrafish embryos revealed by improved FRAP analysis

Fernanda Bajanca, Vinicio Gonzalez-Perez, Sean J. Gillespie, Cyriaque Beley, Luis Garcia, Eric Theveneau, Richard P. Sear & Simon M. Hughes
Dystrophin forms an essential link between sarcolemma and cytoskeleton, perturbation of which causes muscular dystrophy. We analysed Dystrophin binding dynamics in vivo for the first time. Within maturing fibres of host zebrafish embryos, our analysis reveals a pool of diffusible Dystrophin and complexes bound at the fibre membrane. Combining modelling, an improved FRAP methodology and direct semi-quantitative analysis of bleaching suggests the existence of two membrane-bound Dystrophin populations with widely differing bound lifetimes: a stable,...

Socio-economic survey of domestic groundwater handling and use for source owners in Kisumu, Kenya in 2014

L. Okotto, J. Okotto-Okotto, H. Price, S. Pedley & J. Wright
This datasets contains the anonymised results of a survey of well owners in Kisumu, Kenya. Data includes information on the amount of water abstracted daily from the well and ways in which this water was used and handled, information on other sources of water (e.g. piped utility water and rainwater) and how this is used, and the assets and services that the well owner has access to. Answers from questions to assess food poverty are...

Data from: Natural light exposure, sleep and depression among day workers and shiftworkers at Arctic and Equatorial latitudes

Elaine Cristina Marqueze, Suleima Vasconcelos, Johanna Garefelt, Debra J. Skene, Claudia Roberta Moreno & Arne Lowden
Objectives: This study aimed to investigate the relationship between individual natural light exposure, sleep need, and depression at two latitudes, one extreme with a few hours of light per day during winter, and the other with equal hours of light and darkness throughout the year. Methods: This cross-sectional study included a sample of Brazilian workers (Equatorial, n = 488 workers) and a Swedish sample (Arctic, n = 1,273). Results: The reported mean total natural light...
