    In September 2015, the US Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) issued a notice of violation of the Clean Air Act to the automobile manufacturer Volkswagen.1 It alleges that four-cylinder Volkswagen and Audi diesel ...
  • Tsoutsi, Dionysia; Sanles-Sobrido, Marcos; Cabot, Andreu; Rivera Gil, Pilar (Bentham Science Publishers, 2018)
    In this review, we introduce the reader the analytical technique, surface-enhanced Raman scattering motivated by the great potential we believe this technique have in biomedicine. We present the advantages and limitations ...
  • Worley, Kim C.; Lorente-Galdós, Belén, 1981-; Marquès i Bonet, Tomàs, 1975-; Wilson, Richard K.; The Marmoset Genome Sequencing and Analysis Consortium (Nature Publishing Group, 2014)
    We report the whole-genome sequence of the common marmoset (Callithrix jacchus). The 2.26-Gb genome of a female marmoset was assembled using Sanger read data (6×) and a whole-genome shotgun strategy. A first analysis has ...
