  • Kornilios, Panagiotis (Taylor & Francis, 2019)
    The Eurasian or Greek blindsnake, Xerotyphlops vermicularis, is the only European representative of the infraorder Scolecophidia, a largely understudied group of snakes with a poor record of available mitogenomes. Its ...

    Inversions are one type of structural variants linked to phenotypic differences and adaptation in multiple organisms. However, there is still very little information about polymorphic inversions in the human genome due to ...
  • Merenciano, Miriam; Iacometti, Camillo; González, Josefa (BioMed Central, 2019)
    Transposable elements (TEs) are not randomly distributed in the genome. A genome-wide analysis of the D. melanogaster genome found that differences in TE density across 50 kb genomic regions was due both to transposition ...
  • Vendrell Mir, Pol; Barteri, Fabio; Merenciano, Miriam; González, Josefa; Casacuberta, Josep M.; Castanera, Raúl (BioMed Central, 2019)
    Background: Transposable elements (TEs) are an important source of genomic variability in eukaryotic genomes. Their activity impacts genome architecture and gene expression and can lead to drastic phenotypic changes. ...
  • Ruzzoli, Manuela; McGuinness, Aoife; Morís Fernández, Luis, 1982-; Soto-Faraco, Salvador, 1970- (Public Library of Science (PLoS), 2020)
    This study explored brain responses to images that exploit incongruity as a creative technique, often used in advertising (i.e., surrealistic images). We hypothesized that these images would reveal responses akin to cognitive ...
  • Bertalmío, Marcelo; Calatroni, Luca; Franceschi, Valentina; Franceschiello, Benedetta; Prandi, Dario (Springer, 2020)
    We consider the evolution model proposed in Bertalmío (Front Comput Neurosci 8:71, 2014), Bertalmío et al. (IEEE Trans Image Process 16(4):1058–1072, 2007) to describe illusory contrast perception phenomena induced by ...
  • Dumas, Orianne; Varraso, Raphaëlle; Boggs, Krislyn M.; Quinot, Catherine; Zock, Jan-Paul; Henneberger, Paul K.; Speizer, Frank E.; Le Moual, Nicole; Camargo, Carlos A. (American Medical Association, 2019)
    Importance: Exposure to disinfectants in health care workers has been associated with respiratory health outcomes, including asthma. Despite the biological plausibility of an association between disinfectants (irritant ...
  • Plans, Elena; Gullón, Pedro; Cebrecos, Alba; Fontán, Mario; Díez, Julia; Nieuwenhuijsen, Mark J.; Franco, Manuel (MDPI, 2019)
    The aim of this study is to evaluate the relationship between the density of green spaces at different buffer sizes (300, 500, 1000 and 1500 m) and cardiovascular risk factors (obesity, hypertension, high cholesterol, and ...
  • Boronat Rigol, Anna, 1990-; Soldevila-Domenech, Natalia; Rodríguez-Morató, Jose, 1987-; Martínez-Huélamo, Miriam; Lamuela-Raventós, Rosa M.; Torre Fornell, Rafael de la (MDPI, 2020)
    Beer is a fermented beverage with beneficial phenolic compounds and is widely consumed worldwide. The current study aimed to describe the content of three families of phenolic compounds with relevant biological activities: ...
  • Oberman, Kieran (Cambridge University Press - Core, 2019)
    Every year, thousands of refugees and other migrants die trying to cross borders. The dangers are many. Migrants die from exhaustion crossing deserts, freeze on mountain passes, drown at sea. One way states can save lives ...
  • Akin, Özlem; Marín Vigueras, José María; Peydró, José-Luis (Oxford University Press, 2020)
    Banking crises are recurrent phenomena, often induced by excessive bank risk-taking, which may be due to behavioural reasons (over-optimistic banks neglecting risks) and to conflicts of interest between bank shareholders/managers ...
  • Marcet Houben, Marina; Gabaldón Estevan, Juan Antonio, 1973- (Nature Research, 2019)
    Gene clusters comprise genomically co-localized and potentially co-regulated genes that tend to be conserved across species. In eukaryotes, multiple examples of metabolic gene clusters are known, particularly among fungi ...
  • Langemeyer, Johannes; Wedgwood, Diego; McPhearson, Timon; Baró Porras, Francesc; Madsen, Anders L.; Barton, David N. (Elsevier, 2020)
    As cities face increasing pressure from densification trends, green roofs represent a valuable source of ecosystem services for residents of compact metropolises where available green space is scarce. However, to date ...
  • Mélon, Lela; Spruk, Rock (Emerald, 2020)
    We examine the contribution of e-procurement to the institutional quality. To this end, we exploit the early adoption of large-scale e-procurement platforms in three EU countries to consistently estimate the effect of ...

    The different geographical contexts seen in European metropolitan areas are reflected in the uneven distribution of health risk factors for the population. Accumulating evidence on multiple health determinants point to the ...
  • Ventura, Jaume (Oxford University Press, 2019)
    This paper develops a simple theoretical framework to study a set of regions, each with its own regional government, who share a union or central government. These governments must decide whether to implement or discard a ...
  • Gancia, Gino A.; Ponzetto, Giacomo A. M.; Ventura, Jaume (Elsevier, 2020)
    After decades of successful growth, economic unions have recently become the focus of heightened political controversy. To understand why, we develop a theoretical model of the effects on trade, income distribution and ...
