The Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale (EPDS) is a screening tool for depression that has been used widely postnatally and increasingly antenatally. Recent investigations have suggested that the EPDS may actually be measuring both anxiety and depre...

Mussels are susceptible to a wide range of environmental toxicants, including carcinogens, and thus are often employed as bioindicator species. To elucidate the molecular aetiology of such neoplastic damage, we have cloned Mytilus edulis homologues o... Read More about Conservation of cancer genes in the marine invertebrate Mytilus edulis.
