Leading national thinking on politics, government & public policy through Open Access research

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the School of Government & Public Policy, based within the Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences.

Research here is 1st in Scotland for research intensity and spans a wide range of domains. The Department of Politics demonstrates expertise in understanding parties, elections and public opinion, with additional emphases on political economy, institutions and international relations. This international angle is reflected in the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC) which conducts comparative research on public policy. Meanwhile, the Centre for Energy Policy provides independent expertise on energy, working across multidisciplinary groups to shape policy for a low carbon economy.

    Modeling and analysis of complex biological networks necessitates suitable handling of data on a parallel scale. Using the IkB-NF-kB pathway model and a basis of sensitivity analysis, analytic methods are presented, extending correlation from the network kinetic reaction rates to that of the rate reactions. Alignment of correlated processed components, vastly outperforming correlation of the data source, advanced sets of biological classes possessing similar network activities. Additional construction generated a naturally structured, cardinally based system for component-specific investigation. The computationally driven procedures are described, with results demonstrating viability as mechanisms useful for fundamental oscillatory network activity investigation.
