Trends in cancer incidence in Singapore, 1968-1982 by H. P Lee( Book )

14 editions published between 1983 and 1988 in English and Undetermined and held by 254 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This study of cancer incidence in Singapore over 15 years offers a unique opportunity because the population consists of closely juxtaposed groups with differing life-styles. The results show for example that at many sites the rates of cancer incidence reflect ethnic differences, differences by place of birth, and, among Chinese, differences that correspond to the rates in their area of origin in China. The depth of information available makes it possible to conduct detailed studies with more data on sub-sites and histological types. Such monitoring of trends and developments has become crucial as Singapore moves to develop a national cancer control program."--Publisher description

Automated analysis and validation of open chemical data by N. E Day( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Methods to automatically extract Open Data from the chemical literature, validate it, and use it to validate theory are examined. Chemical identifiers which assist the automatic location of chemical structures using commercial Web search engines are investigated. The IUPAC International Chemical Idenfitifer (InChI) gives almost 100% recall and precision, though is shown to be too long for present search engines. A combination of InChI and InChIKey, a shorter, fixed-length hash of the InChIstring, is concluded to be the best current method of identifying structures. The proportion of published, Open Crystallographic Information Files(CIFs) that are valid with respect to the specification is shown to be improving, and is around 99% in 2007. The error rate in the conversion of valid CIFs to Chemical Markup Language (CML) is less than 0.2%. The machine generation of connection tables from CIFs requires many heuristics, and in some cases it is impossible to deduce the exact connection table. CrystalEye, a fully-automated system for the reformulation of the fragmented crystallographic Web into a structured XML-based repository is described. Published, Open CIFs can be located and aggregated programmatically with almost 100% recall. It is shown that, by converting CIF data to CML, software can be created to use the latest Web standards and technologies to enhance the ability of Web users to browse, find, keep updated, download and reuse the latest published crystallography. A workflow for the high-throughput calculation of solid-state geometry using a semi-empirical method is described. A wide-range of organic and inorganic systems provided by CrystalEye are used to test both the data and the method. Several errors in the method are discovered, many of which can be attributed to the parameterization process. An Open NMR experiment to perform high-throughput prediction of 13C chemical shifts using a GIAO protocol is described. The data and analysis were provided on publicly-available webpages to enable crowdsourcing, which assisted in discovering an error rate of 6.1% in the starting data. The protocol was refined during the work and shown to have an average unsigned error of 2.24ppm for 13C nuclei of small, rigid molecules; comparable to the errors observed elsewhere for general structures using HOSE and Neural Network methods
