Empirical Research Methods in Software Engineering
This course will explore the role of empiricism in software engineering research, and will prepare students for advanced research in SE by examining how to plan, conduct and report on empirical investigations. The course will cover all of the principal methods applicable to SE: controlled experiment, case studies, surveys, archival analysis, action research and ethnographies, and will relate these methods to relevant metatheories in the philosophy and sociology of science. The course will critic

This system is widely used in
Orchestrating cell separation in plants: What are the risks and benefits?
In this podcast, Professor Roberts from the School of Biosciences discusses his research into the mechanism responsible for regulating cell separation in plants. In particular how plants 'shed' parts of themselves such as leaves or fruit. Professor Roberts explores the potential application of his research, through prevention or encouraging of the 'shedding' process, agricultural harvests could potentially be increased or even synchronised. Professor Roberts also discusses the resistance faced
