It proposes in Chapter 4, a typology of evaluation methodologies and techniques.
The thesis presents a critique of various, recent evaluations of regeneration programmes and identifies significant weaknesses in them and their coverage of the key evaluation issues. Overall, the thesis sets out the results of distinctive and original research into the evaluation of regeneration projects and programmes.
Item Type:. Epub Oct 2. This includes a discussion on the reasons for choosing a particular assay, its strengths and weaknesses, ways to improve the accuracy of results and alternative assays. Critical analysis of current methods for assessing the in vitro antioxidant and antibacterial activity of plant extracts.
If the public sector is to ensure that net social benefits of regeneration are maximised effective evaluation is critical.
The thesis reviews current guidance on evaluations and identifies a number of key issues. It goes on to consider the nature and characteristics of the regeneration policies and programmes that have been developed to tackle these problems - noting their complex and multi-domain nature. In vitro screening is a common practice in many research laboratories as a means of rapidly assessing these properties.
This review primarily aims to give a better understanding in the selection of in vitro assays, with emphasis placed on some common assays such as the total phenolic content assay, free radical scavenging activity, disc-diffusion and broth microdilution. Electronic address: tan.
Food Chem. The approach proposed is novel and combines multi-criteria value for money, cost benefit account and what works analyses, using both macro top-down and micro bottom-up approaches.
