The enclosed data reports on a longitudinal observational study which assessed plantar pressures in a cohort of active diabetic foot ulcer patients over six months in comparison to age and sex matched diabetes controls without a history of foot ulcers. Twenty-one cases and 69 controls started the study and 16 cases and 63 controls completed the study. The peak plantar pressures and pressure-time integrals were assessed at three visits (baseline, first-follow up at 3 months and second follow-up at 6 months). For the first time the study results demonstrated that plantar pressures remain elevated at sites of ulceration throughout follow-up in people with foot ulcers with very little change over time.
This data-set contains raw (de-identified) data used for the analysis of the study "Plantar pressures are higher in cases with diabetic foot ulcers compared to controls despite a longer stance phase duration". 146 participants were included in the study: 21 DFU (Group 1) (patients with diabetic foot ulcers); 70 DM Control (Group 2) (patients with type 2 diabetes) and 55 healthy participants (Group 3). Data were collected in 5 trials (column label suffixes A-E) and were recorded within the plantar aspect of the foot at 10 anatomical locations: plantar surfaces of the hallux (T1), combined toes one to five (T2to5), metatarsal one (M1), metatarsal two (M2), metatarsal three (M3), metatarsal four (M4), metatarsal five (M5), the mid foot (Midfoot) , the medial rear foot (MHeel) and the lateral rear foot (LHeel). Data includes peak pressures in N/cm²; pressure time integral (PTI) in Ns/cm²; contact area of the foot in cm², estimated vertical ground reaction force (contact area multiplied by mean peak pressure, MPP) in N, maximum sensor pressures in N/cm² and body mass adjusted force (Spreadsheet 1) and stance times in ms (Spreadsheet 2)

This dataset contains raw spatial prioritisation outputs from the decision-support software tool Marxan. These include the two main outputs from prioritisations: 1) individual solutions created for each conservation scenario run (100 solutions each), and 2) selection frequency data of each of the 20 scenarios, detailing the relative importance of each planning unit in the spatial prioritisation. The allssolnfreq.csv file consists of selection frequency data for each planning unit for each of the 20 conservation prioritisation scenarios run. Selection frequency values reflect the number of times each planning unit was selected as part of a good solution (100 total per scenario). The allsols.csv files consists of each individual solution produced for each scenario (100 solutions per scenario, 20 scenarios total). Binary data, 0 representing unselected planning units; 1 representing selected planning units. Scenario code IDs reflect those used in publication to which these datasets relate.

The increasing production and consumption of molluscs are associated with a rise in the prevalence of mollusc allergy worldwide, currently affecting 0.2% to 1.3% of the general population. However, the elucidation of mollusc allergens, crucial for better diagnostics, still lags behind other seafood groups such as fish and crustacean. Genomic data have previously been utilized for the improved identification of non-food allergens by performing similarity searches using the BLAST program. Based on the published genome of the Pacific oyster (Crassostrea gigas) we aimed to identify the repertoire of potential allergen using bioinformatics analysis and sought to validate allergenicity using a combination of immuno-chemical methods and proteomic analysis. A repertoire of 25,982 genome-derived proteomes of the Pacific oyster were aligned with 2117 allergen sequences resulting in over 800 protein homologues. Of those, 95 proteins were potentially cross-reactive allergens due to high identity with known allergens (>50% identity). Analysis of the transcriptomic data showed the proteins were differentially expressed across tissue of the oyster.

This data-set contains oxygen consumption and haematology data collected in a study on the acclimation potential of barramundi to low-oxygen (hypoxia) exposure. Fish were exposed to diel-cycling hypoxia for 0 (control), 8 or 16 days. Each individual fish was used only once throughout this trial, and thus all measurements are independent. The full materials and methods are included in the related publication and as Chapter 3 of the author’s PhD thesis.
