  3. The control of lung branching morphogenesis 

    Iber, Dagmar (2021)
    Current Topics in Developmental Biology ~ Cellular Networks in Development
    Branching morphogenesis generates epithelial trees which facilitate gas exchange, filtering, as well as secretion processes with their large surface to volume ratio. In this review, we focus on the developmental mechanisms that control the early stages of lung branching morphogenesis. Lung branching morphogenesis involves the stereotypic, recurrent definition of new branch points, subsequent epithelial budding, and lung tube elongation. ...

    Governing Privacy in Knowledge Commons
    Diverse and increasingly comprehensive data about our personal lives is collected. When these personal data are linked to health records or linked to other data collected in our environment, such as that collected by state administrations or financial systems, the data have huge potential for public health research and society in general. Precision medicine, including pharmacogenomics, particularly depends on the potential of data linkage. ...

  6. Life expectancy and length of life inequality in the long run 

    Crombach, Lamar; Smits, Jeroen; Monden, Christiaan (2021)
    How Was Life? Volume II: New Perspectives on Well-being and Global Inequality since 1820
    This chapter describes trends in adult length of life and its distribution based on 15144 life tables derived from various sources that for some countries cover a period of over 200 years. Since 1800, life expectancy in the most developed countries has increased from around 55 to 81 years for men and from 57 to 87 for women, an increase of about 50%. Concurrently, inequality in length of life in the best-performing countries has been cut ...

  9. Experiential Training of Hand Hygiene Using Virtual Reality 

    Clack, Lauren; Hirt, Christian; Kunz, Andreas; et al. (2021)
    Intelligent Systems Reference Library ~ Recent Advances in Technologies for Inclusive Well-Being
    Hand hygiene is widely recognized as an important measure to prevent the transmission of microorganisms that may be involved in healthcare-associated infections. Yet correct hand hygiene remains challenging and healthcare providers struggle to improve adherence. While seemingly straightforward, performing hand hygiene at the right indication using the right technique becomes difficult within the context of complex work processes. We believe ...

    Hock, Regine; Huss, Matthias (2021)
    Climate Change: Observed Impacts on Planet Earth
    Concurrent with atmospheric warming glaciers around the world are rapidly retreating, thinning, and losing mass. While total volume compared with the ice sheets in Greenland and Antarctica is small, glaciers outside the ice sheets have contributed significantly to recent global sea level rise. On average, these glaciers experienced only slightly negative mass budgets in the 1960s–80s, but mass loss has increased considerably since. While ...

  12. The Interplay between Salmonella enterica Serovar Typhimurium and the Intestinal Mucosa during Oral Infection 

    Hausmann, Annika; Hardt, Wolf-Dietrich (2020)
    Bacteria and Intracellularity
    Bacterial pathogens typically target specific host tissues. The interaction between host and pathogen is a complex process that differs from cell to cell (1). It strongly depends on the targeted organ and the pathogen itself. Organs are composed of multiple cell types that may cooperate in antimicrobial defense. While earlier work focused on the role of immune cells, it is becoming increasingly clear that non-hematopoietic cells can also ...

  13. Methods to Quantify DNA Transfer in Enterococcus 

    Novais, Carla; Freitas, Ana R.; Leon Sampedro, Ricardo; et al. (2020)
    Methods in Molecular Biology ~ Horizontal Gene Transfer
    DNA uptake in Enterococcus normally occurs by conjugation, a natural process that is replicated in biomedical research to assess the transferability of different mobile genetic elements and chromosomal regions as well as to study the host range of plasmids and other conjugative elements. More efficient artificial methods to transform cells with foreign DNA as chemotransformation and electroporation are widely used in molecular genetics. ...

  15. Snow and ice in the hydrosphere 

    Seibert, Jan; Jenicek, Michal; Huss, Matthias; et al. (2021)
    Snow and Ice-Related Hazards, Risks, and Disasters
    In large areas of the world, runoff and other hydrological variables are controlled by the spatial and temporal variation of the 0 °C isotherm, which is central for the temporal storage of precipitation as snow or ice. This storage is of crucial importance for the seasonal distribution of snow and ice melt, a major component of the movement of water in the global water cycle. This chapter provides an introduction to the role of snow and ...

  16. Data-driven intelligent predictive maintenance of industrial assets 

    Fink, Olga (2020)
    Women in Engineering and Science ~ Women in Industrial and Systems Engineering
    Condition monitoring and predictive maintenance enable to focus on the operating and degradation conditions of a specific asset and designing maintenance policies that are optimal for the single asset and not for an entire fleet or a population of similar assets. While this was already possible for critical systems such as power plants for decades, decreased costs of condition monitoring solutions enabled a tight health monitoring also ...
