  1. Development of a SNP-based tool for the identification and discrimination of Melolontha melolontha and Melolontha hippocastani 

    Pedrazzini, Chiara; Strasser, Hermann; Holderegger, Rolf; et al. (2021)
    The European (Melolontha melolontha L.) and Forest (M. hippocastani F.) cockchafer are widespread pests throughout Central Europe. Both species exhibit a 3-5-year life cycle and occur in temporally shifted populations, which have been monitored and documented for more than 100 years. Visual identification of adults and larvae belonging to these morphologically similar species requires expertise and, particularly in the case of larvae, is ...

  2. Experimental observation of carousel-like phason flips in the decagonal quasicrystal Al60Cr20Fe10Si10 

    He, Zhanbing; Maurice, Jean Luc; Ma, Haikun; et al. (2021)
    Quasicrystals have special crystal structures with long-range order, but without translational symmetry. Unexpectedly, carousel-like successive flippings of groups of atoms inside the similar to 2 nm decagonal structural subunits of the decagonal quasicrystal Al60Cr20Fe10Si10 were directly observed using in situ high-temperature high-resolution transmission electron microscopy imaging. The observed directionally successive phason flips ...

  3. Solubility Prediction of Organic Molecules with Molecular Dynamics Simulations 

    Bjelobrk, Zoran; Mendels, Dan; Karmakar, Tarak; et al. (2021)
    Crystal Growth & Design
    We present a molecular dynamics simulation method for the computation of the solubility of organic crystals in solution. The solubility is calculated based on the equilibrium free energy difference between the solvated solute and its crystallized state at the crystal surface kink site. To efficiently sample the growth and dissolution process, we have carried out well-tempered metadynamics simulations with a collective variable that captures ...

  4. The career outlook of engineering PhDs: Influence of postdoctoral research positions on early career salaries and the attainment of tenure-track faculty positions 

    Main, Joyce B.; Wang, Yanbing; Tan, Li (2021)
    Background The number of engineering PhDs pursuing postdoctoral research scholar (postdoc) positions has steadily increased in the last 30 years. Postdoc positions are commonly thought of as a step toward academic careers. However, engineering PhDs are more likely to work in industry, which leaves open the question of the role of postdocs in the career trajectories of engineering PhDs. Purpose/hypothesis This study examines the factors ...

  5. The Filter Detection Task for measurement of breathing-related interoception and metacognition 

    Harrison O.K.; Garfinkel S.N.; Marlow L.; et al. (2021)
    Biological Psychology
    The study of the brain's processing of sensory inputs from within the body (‘interoception’) has been gaining rapid popularity in neuroscience, where interoceptive disturbances are thought to exist across a wide range of chronic physiological and psychological conditions. Here we present a task and analysis procedure to quantify specific dimensions of breathing-related interoception, including interoceptive sensitivity, decision bias, ...
