  1. Improving Syntactical Clone Detection Methods through the Use of an Intermediate Representation 

    Caldeira, Pedro M.; Sakamoto, Kazunori; Washizaki, Hironori; et al. (2020)
    Detection of type-3 and type-4 clones remains a difficult task. Current methods are complex, both on a conceptual and computational level. Similarly, their usage requires substantial implementation efforts. Instead of creating yet another method, it might be more productive to combine the simplicity of syntactic approaches with the abstractions granted by intermediate representations (IR). To this end, we devised a c-like IR based on LLVM ...

  2. Dynamics of Bacteriorhodopsin in the Dark-Adapted State from Solution Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy 

    Kooijman, Laurens; Schuster, Matthias; Baumann, Christian; et al. (2020)
    Angewandte Chemie. International Edition
    To achieve efficient proton pumping in the light-driven proton pump bacteriorhodopsin (bR), the protein must be tightly coupled to the retinal to rapidly convert retinal isomerization into protein structural rearrangements. Methyl group dynamics of bR embedded in lipid nanodiscs were determined in the dark-adapted state, and were found to be mostly well ordered at the cytosolic side. Methyl groups in the M145A mutant of bR, which displays ...

  3. Stratospheric influence on ECMWF sub-seasonal forecast skill for energy-industry-relevant surface weather in European countries 

    Bueeler, Dominik; Beerli, Remo; Wernli, Heini; et al. (2020)
    Meteorologists in the energy industry increasingly draw upon the potential for enhanced sub-seasonal predictability of European surface weather following anomalous states of the winter stratospheric polar vortex (SPV). How the link between the SPV and the large-scale tropospheric flow translates into forecast skill for surface weather in individual countries - a spatial scale that is particularly relevant for the energy industry - remains ...

  4. Inflection point in climatic suitability of insect pest species in Europe suggests non-linear responses to climate change 

    Gruenig, Marc; Calanca, Pierluigi; Mazzi, Dominique; et al. (2020)
    Global Change Biology
    Climate change and globalization affect the suitable conditions for agricultural crops and insect pests, threatening future food security. It remains unknown whether shifts in species' climatic suitability will be linear or rather non-linear, with crop exposure to pests suddenly increasing when a critical temperature threshold is crossed. Moreover, uncertainty of forecasts can arise because of the modelling approach based either on species ...

  5. A review of studies on observed precipitation trends in Italy 

    Caporali, Enrica; Lompi, Marco; Pacetti, Tommaso; et al. (2020)
    International Journal of Climatology
    Research to detect changes in precipitation variables has become a topic of particular interest to understand modifications in water resources availability. The review is focused on the Italian territory, outlining the "state of the art" of changes in precipitation regime through a review of 54 published studies on observed rainfall trend analyses, in the period 1999-2018. The aim is to combine a large body of knowledge in a single review ...
