Recent Submissions

  • Louka, Alexandra; Zacco, Elsa; Temussi, Piero Andrea; Tartaglia, Gian Gaetano; Pastore, Annalisa (Oxford University Press, 2020)
    The study of prions as infectious aggregates dates several decades. From its original formulation, the definition of a prion has progressively changed to the point that many aggregation-prone proteins are now considered ...
  • Vandelli, Andrea; Monti, Michele; Milanetti, Edoardo; Armaos, Alexandros, 1989-; Rupert, Jakob; Zacco, Elsa; Bechara, Elias; Delli Ponti, Riccardo, 1987-; Tartaglia, Gian Gaetano (Oxford University Press, 2020)
    Specific elements of viral genomes regulate interactions within host cells. Here, we calculated the secondary structure content of >2000 coronaviruses and computed >100 000 human protein interactions with severe acute ...
  • Reymond, Loïc; Huser, Thomas; Ruprecht, Verena; Wieser, Stefan (IOP Publishing Ltd., 2020)
    Super-resolution fluorescence microscopy has become a powerful tool in cell biology to observe sub-cellular organization and molecular details below the diffraction limit of light. Super-resolution methods are generally ...
  • Fineberg, Adam; Surrey, Thomas; Kukura, Philipp (Elsevier, 2020)
    The αβ-tubulin heterodimer is the fundamental building block of microtubules, making it central to several cellular processes. Despite the apparent simplicity of heterodimerisation, the associated energetics and kinetics ...
  • Tremblay, Pascale; Deschamps, Isabelle; Baroni, Marco; Hasson, Uri (Elsevier, 2016)
    Many factors affect our ability to decode the speech signal, including its quality, the complexity of the elements that compose it, as well as their frequency of occurrence and co-occurrence in a language. Syllable frequency ...
  • Aranda Aragón, Sergio; Borràs, Eva; Sabidó Aguadé, Eduard, 1981-; Di Croce, Luciano (Elsevier, 2020)
    De novo identification of chromatin interactors can reveal unexpected pathways relevant to physiology and human disease. Inspired by the DNA mediated chromatin pull-down (Dm-ChP) technology (also known as iPOND [isolation ...
  • Llorach, Gerard; Agenjo, Javier; Blat, Josep; Sayago Barrantes, Sergio (Springer, 2019)
    Within Human-Computer Interaction, there has recently been an important turn to embodied and voice-based interaction. In this chapter, we discuss our ongoing research on building online Embodied Conversational Agents (ECAs), ...
  • Vogelezang, Suzanne; Vilor Tejedor, Natàlia, 1988-; Bustamante Pineda, Mariona; Vrijheid, Martine; Sunyer Deu, Jordi; Felix, Janine Frédérique (Public Library of Science (PLoS), 2020)
    The genetic background of childhood body mass index (BMI), and the extent to which the well-known associations of childhood BMI with adult diseases are explained by shared genetic factors, are largely unknown. We performed ...
  • Martorell Domínguez, Agustín; Gómez Gutiérrez, Emilia, 1975- (Taylor & Francis, 2015)
    This work presents a systematic methodology for set-class surface analysis using temporal multi-scale techniques. The method extracts the set-class content of all the possible temporal segments, addressing the representational ...
  • Kosta, Katerina; Ramírez, Rafael,1966-; Bandtlow, Oscar F.; Chew, Elaine (Taylor & Francis, 2016)
    Loudness variation is one of the foremost tools for expressivity in music performance. Loudness is frequently notated as dynamic markings such as p (piano, meaning soft) or f (forte, meaning loud). While dynamic markings ...
  • Gaspari, Erika; Malachowski, Antoni; García Morales, Luis; Burgos, Raul; Serrano Pubull, Luis, 1982-; Martins dos Santos, Vitor; Suarez-Diez, Maria (Nature Research, 2020)
    Mycoplasma pneumoniae is a slow-growing, human pathogen that causes atypical pneumonia. Because it lacks a cell wall, many antibiotics are ineffective. Due to its reduced genome and dearth of many biosynthetic pathways, ...
  • Whalley, Justin P.; Stobbe, Miranda D.; Beltran, Sergi; Gut, Marta; Trotta, Jean-Remi; Gut, Ivo Glynne (Nature Research, 2020)
    Bringing together cancer genomes from different projects increases power and allows the investigation of pan-cancer, molecular mechanisms. However, working with whole genomes sequenced over several years in different ...
  • Tarbier, Marcel; Mackowiak, Sebastian D.; Frade, João; Catuara Solarz, Silvina, 1986-; Biryukova, Inna; Gelali, Eleni; Bárcena Menéndez, Diego, 1984-; Zapata Ortiz, Luis, 1985-; Ossowski, Stephan; Bienko, Magda; Gallant, Caroline J.; Friedländer, Marc R. (Nature Research, 2020)
    Single-cell RNA sequencing studies on gene co-expression patterns could yield important regulatory and functional insights, but have so far been limited by the confounding effects of differentiation and cell cycle. We apply ...
  • Navas Pérez, Enrique; Cuscó Pons, Pol, 1987-; García Fernàndez, Jordi (BioMed Central, 2020)
    Background: One of the most unusual sources of phylogenetically restricted genes is the molecular domestication of transposable elements into a host genome as functional genes. Although these kinds of events are sometimes ...
  • Hathazi, Denisa; Lochmüller, Hanns; Horvath, Rita (EMBRO Press, 2020)
    Reversible infantile respiratory chain deficiency (RIRCD) is a rare mitochondrial myopathy leading to severe metabolic disturbances in infants, which recover spontaneously after 6-months of age. RIRCD is associated with ...
  • Kringelbach, Morten L.; Deco, Gustavo (Elsevier, 2020)
    Within the field of computational neuroscience there are great expectations of finding new ways to rebalance the complex dynamic system of the human brain through controlled pharmacological or electromagnetic perturbation. ...
  • Eladly, Ahmed; Del Valle, Jaume; Minguillon, Jesus; Mercadal, Borja; Becerra Fajardo, Laura; Navarro, Xavier; Ivorra Cano, Antoni, 1974- (IOP Publishing Ltd., 2020)
    Objective. It is known that multi-site interleaved stimulation generates less muscle fatigue compared to single-site synchronous stimulation. However, in the limited number of studies in which intramuscular electrodes were ...
  • Baeza Centurión, Pablo, 1989-; Miñana, Belén; Valcárcel, J. (Juan); Lehner, Ben, 1978- (eLife, 2020)
    Genetic analyses and systematic mutagenesis have revealed that synonymous, non-synonymous and intronic mutations frequently alter the inclusion levels of alternatively spliced exons, consistent with the concept that altered ...
  • Barnett, Ross; de Manuel, Marc; Marquès i Bonet, Tomàs, 1975-; Gilbert, M Thomas (Elsevier, 2020)
    Homotherium was a genus of large-bodied scimitar-toothed cats, morphologically distinct from any extant felid species, that went extinct at the end of the Pleistocene [1-4]. They possessed large, saber-form serrated canine ...
