Population Genetics of an Ecosystem-Defining Reef Coral Pocillopora damicornis in the Tropical Eastern Pacific
(Public Library of Science (PLoS), 2011-08-09)
Background: Coral reefs in the Tropical Eastern Pacific (TEP) are amongst the most peripheral and geographically isolated in the world. This isolation has shaped the biology of TEP organisms and lead to the formation of ...
Integrative taxonomy reveals hidden species within a common fungal parasite of ladybirds
(Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2018-10-29)
Photoredox catalysis using infrared light via triplet fusion upconversion
(Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2019-01)
Recent advances in photoredox catalysis have made it possible to execute a multitude of challenging synthetic transformations, polymerizations, and surface modifications. In all cases, these transformations require ultraviolet ...
Observation of a discrete time crystal
(Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2017-03-09)
Spontaneous symmetry breaking is a fundamental concept in many areas of physics, ranging from cosmology and particle physics to condensed matter1. A prime example is the breaking of spatial translation symmetry, which ...
Distance to care, enrollment and loss to follow-up of HIV patients during decentralization of antiretroviral therapy in Neno District, Malawi: A retrospective cohort study
(Public Library of Science (PLoS), 2017-10-03)
HIV/AIDS remains the 2nd most common cause of death in low and middle-income countries (LMICs), and only 34% of eligible patients in LMICs received antiretroviral therapy (ART) in 2013. This study investigated the impact ...
Virus genomes reveal factors that spread and sustained the Ebola epidemic
(Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2017-04)
The 2013–2016 epidemic of Ebola virus disease was of unprecedented magnitude, duration and impact. Analysing 1610 Ebola virus genomes, representing over 5% of known cases, we reconstruct the dispersal, proliferation and ...
A Resource for Transcriptomic Analysis in the Mouse Brain
(Public Library of Science (PLoS), 2008-08-20)
Background: The transcriptome of the cerebral cortex is remarkably homogeneous, with variations being stronger between individuals than between areas. It is thought that due to the presence of many distinct cell types, ...
The contribution of outdoor air pollution sources to premature mortality on a global scale
(Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2015-09)
Building one molecule from a reservoir of two atoms
(American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), 2018-05-25)
When chemists run reactions, what they are really doing is mixing up an enormous number of reacting partners and then hoping that they collide productively. It is possible to manipulate atoms more deliberately with a ...
Magnetostatic twists in room-temperature skyrmions explored by nitrogen-vacancy center spin texture reconstruction
(Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2018-07-13)
Magnetic skyrmions are two-dimensional non-collinear spin textures characterized by an integer topological number. Room-temperature skyrmions were recently found in magnetic multilayer stacks, where their stability was ...
