The vast majority of our knowledge on vibrio pathogenesis is based on the ancient and well-studied human pathogen, V. cholerae. Often neglected and relegated to specialized journals are vibrio infections in non-human species. While the studies of animal pathogens have benefited from the era of genomics, the search for pathogenesis determinants is often biased by ...

Crystal Structure Prediction (CSP) methods were developed on the assumption that an organic molecule would crystallize in its most stable crystal structure. Even implementing this approach is a challenge to computational chemistry methods,[1] as shown by the Cambridge Crystallographic Data Centre’s blind tests.[2] Polymorphism adds additional challenges, as this is usually a kinetic phenomenon with ...

Abstract: Historical examples of demographic change, in China, Italy, Nigeria, Utah, the Philippines, and elsewhere, together with simple mathematics and biological principles, show that stabilizing world population before it is limited by food supply will be more difficult than is generally appreciated. United Nations population projections are based on a logical fallacy in that they ... Read more about "EESS Special event - talk on "An earth-scientist’s view of human population dynamics""

Description Les relations de travail ne sont pas toujours un long fleuve tranquille. De simples désaccords ou des tensions passagères peuvent évoluer en conflits larvés ou ouverts. Les relations interpersonnelles et l’organisation du travail peuvent engendrer des situations anormales comme le harcèlement (moral et sexuel) et le burnout. Les conséquences touchent non seulement les personnes ... Read more about "REGARD Workshop: Les relations de travail : un long fleuve tranquille ?"
