Extreme weather events impact countries' economies. To increase financial resilience against such events, some countries joined sovereign catastrophe risk pools. The risk diversification of these pools - and their member countries' financial resilience - can significantly increase via global pooling.
Increased impact of heat domes on 2021-like North American heat extremes due to background warming and soil moisture feedback
The heat dome explains over 50% of 2021 Western North American high temperature. The impact of heat domes on the intensities of 2021-like North American heat extremes have and will continue to increase due to both the background warming and soil moisture feedback.
How does the chiral structures of single-wall carbon nanotubes affect their transport electrical properties?
Chirality-Dependent Electrical Transport Properties of Carbon Nanotubes Obtained by Experimental Measurement- Nature Communications SWCNTs have been reported in field effect transistors as a function of nanotube diameter, showing increasing current with increasing diameter. Su et al. show that ....
Bringing together some of Australia’s leading biomedical microbiologists and bioinformaticians to develop a reference bacterial sepsis dataset.
Integrated transcriptome study of the tumor microenvironment for treatment response prediction in male predominant hypopharyngeal carcinoma
1,2,4,5-Tetrazine-tethered probes for fluorogenically imaging superoxide in live cells with ultrahigh specificity
Specific detection of cellular superoxide is challenging. Here, the authors designed 1,2,4,5-tetrazine based fluorogenic probes for specific and sensitive imaging of superoxide, and applied them in high throughput screening of modulators of oxidative stress.
In Gram-negative bacteria, newly made lipopolysaccharide (LPS) is exported to the outer membrane. We report where key steps in the LPS biosynthesis occur in the asymmetric bacterium Brucella abortus. Moreover, we discovered an enzyme with two activities allowing it to complete LPS biosynthesis.
