    A fundamental requisite for genetic studies is an accurate determination of sequence variation. While human genome sequence diversity is increasingly well characterized, there is a need for efficient ways to utilize this knowledge in sequence analysis. ...

    Iceland is located on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge and is the surface exposure of the ridge system on land. The influence of the plume has been shown to reach towards the south at least as far as the Bight Transform Fault. The ridge system in Iceland has ...

    Background: More than 500 million people worldwide live within exposure range of an active volcano and children are a vulnerable subgroup of such exposed populations. However, studies on the effects of volcanic eruptions on children’s health beyond the ...
  • Brown, Adam R.; Gharibyan, Hrant; Streicher, Alexandre; Susskind, Leonard; Thorlacius, Larus; Zhao, Ying (American Physical Society (APS), 2018-12-28)
    The growth of the “size” of operators is an important diagnostic of quantum chaos. Susskind conjectured that the holographic dual of the size is proportional to the average radial component of the momentum of the particle created by the operator. Thus ...
  • Guðjónsdóttir, María Sigríður (2016-01)
    Liquid dominated reservoirs are a common type of hydrothermal reservoirs. They consist of fractured rock and reservoir fluid which may obey Darcy’s law. Steam can form in such reservoirs either through heat input which causes temperature increase or ...
  • Sigurdsson, Samuel (University of Iceland, School of Health Sciences, Faculty of Medicine, 2018-12)
    Pneumococci are commonly carried asymptomatically in the nasopharynx, especially in children. Pneumococci are also one of the major bacterial pathogens causing both severe infections and non-severe infections in both children and adults. The most severe ...
  • Anderson, Kimberley (University of Iceland, School of Health Sciences, Faculty of Medicine, 2019-04)
    Transcriptional regulatory mechanisms drive the maturation of B cells to plasma cells, with a dramatic transcriptional rewiring taking place during the transition. This rewiring is dependent on a number of factors, including the transcription factor B ...

    We report stable orthogonally polarized domains in high-density polariton solitons propagating in a semiconductor microcavity wire. This effect arises from spin-dependent polariton–polariton interactions and pump-induced imbalance of polariton spin ...
  • Helgason, Dadi (University of Iceland, School of Health Sciences, Faculty of Medicine, 2019-06)
    Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a growing problem worldwide and is associated with high morbidity and mortality. AKI is a known complication following cardiac operations and coronary angiography (CA). Following CA, AKI has been associated with contrast ...
  • Skúlason Kaldal, Gunnar (University of Iceland, School of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Industrial Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Computer Science, 2019-05-20)
    High-temperature geothermal wells are drilled in stages and constructed of several concentric steel casings that are cemented over their entire external surface for sealing and structural support purposes. The structural integrity of such casings is ...
  • Eyþórsson, Elías (University of Iceland, School of Health Sciences, Faculty of Medicine, 2019-06-05)
    Streptococcus pneumoniae is a Gram-positive diplococcus that is both a commensal bacterium in the upper respiratory tract of humans, and a common pathogen. The infectious manifestations of pneumococci span a range from benign to serious; from acute ...
  • Costa, Maria (University of Iceland, School of Health Sciences, Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences, 2019-06)
    In the course of a nearly century-long global effort to discover new bacterialderived drugs from the environment, there have been few innovations to the way that researchers have collected samples and subsequently created microbial libraries sourced ...
  • Bjarnason, Thorarinn Arni (University of Iceland, School of Health Sciences, Faculty of Medicine, 2019-06)
    Sykursýki 2 (SS2) og forstig SS2 eru þekktir áhættuþættir æðakölkunar og alvarlegra fylgikvilla hjarta- og æðasjúkdóma. Skimun sjúklinga með brátt kransæðaheilkenni (BKH) með sykurþolsprófi hefur gefið til kynna hátt algengi ógreindrar SS2 og forstigs ...
  • Scully, Sean (University of Iceland, School of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Life and Environmental Sciences, 2019-05-31)
    The protein and amino acid metabolism of thermophilic bacteria has been a neglected aspect of their physiology despite its biotechnological potential. Under anaerobic conditions, the metabolism of many proteogenic amino acids requires the presence of ...

    Bone area is one measure of bone size that is easily derived from dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) scans. In a GWA study of DXA bone area of the hip and lumbar spine (N ≥ 28,954), we find thirteen independent association signals at twelve loci ...
