(2016-04-05) - Journal articleWe created a computational method to identify allosteric sites using a machine learning method trained and tested on protein structures containing bound ligand molecules. The Random Forest machine learning approach was ...
Spatio-temporal complexity of chimpanzee food: how cognitive adaptations can counteract the ephemeral nature of ripe fruit (2016-06) - Journal articleEcological complexity has been proposed to play a crucial role in primate brain-size evolution. However, detailed quantification of ecological complexity is still limited. Here we assess the spatio-temporal distribution ...
Crowdsourcing indicators for cultural ecosystem services : a geographically weighted approach for mountain landscapes (2016-05) - Journal articleIntegrating cultural dimensions into the ecosystem service framework is essential for appraising non-material benefits stemming from different human-environment interactions. This study investigates how the actual provision ...
(2015-05) - Journal articleTheories of autobiographical memory emphasise effortful, generative search processes in memory retrieval. However recent research suggests that memories are often retrieved directly, without effortful search. We investigated ...
Bunyamwera orthobunyavirus glycoprotein precursor is processed by cellular signal peptidase and signal peptide peptidase (2016-08-02) - Journal articleBunyamwera virus (BUNV) is the prototype of the Orthobunyavirus genus and Bunyaviridae family that contains important human and animal pathogens. The cleavage mechanism of orthobunyavirus glycoprotein precursor (GPC) and ...
