    In this work, we present the draft genome sequence of Komagataeibacter europaeus strain GH1, which is an extremely efficient biocellulose producer.
  • Tulegenov, Dias; Valagiannopoulos, Constantinos (Nature Research, 2020-08-03)
    The controllability of photonic setups is strongly related to how coherently their outputs react to changes in their inputs; such a generic concept is treated in the case of films comprising multilayers of tilted optical ...

(Public Library of Science, 2020-05-21)
    Goats were initially managed in the Near East approximately 10,000 years ago and spread across Eurasia as economically productive and environmentally resilient herd animals. While the geographic origins of domesticated ...
  • Boshkayev, Kuantay; Luongo, Orlando; Muccino, Marco (EDP Sciences, 2020-10-19)
    We investigate neutrino oscillation in the field of an axially symmetric space-time, employing the so-called q-metric, in the context of general relativity. Following the standard approach, we compute the phase shift ...
