|Dr David Cairns Evolving Models of Collagen|
This EPSRC funded project aimed to develop a general method for applying Genetic
Algorithms (GA) to the process of identifying the location and strength of intensity peaks in Bragg
reflections in X-ray diffraction images of semi-crystalline structures such as collagen. A more in
depth description of the project and an indication of some of the results are available here.
The project was a collaboration between Prof. Tim
Wess at the University of Cardiff and Dr Graeme Cameron and Dr David Cairns from the University of
Stirling. The original inspiration and motivation for this project was provided by Prof. Andrew
Miller from the Royal Society of Edinburgh.
