Taking Biodiversity to School: Systematics, Evolutionary Biology, and the Nature of Science
(American Society of Plant Taxonomists, 2014-05)
A concept map for taking biodiversity to school is proposed here using a novel approach that combines systematics, evolutionary biology, and the nature of science. The concept map is tied to the recently published next ...
From the modeling of the inmune hallmarks of cancer to a black swan in biology
(World Scientific, 2013)
Minutes, days and years: molecular interactions among different scales of biological timing
(The Royal Society, 2014-01)
Biological clocks are genetically encoded oscillators that allow organisms to keep track of their environment. Among them, the circadian system is a highly conserved timing structure that regulates several physiological, ...
Precision Medicine in the Renin Angiotensin System Therapeutic Targets and Biological Variability
(Bentham Science Publishers, 2020-07)
Abstract: Pathologies linked to the renin angiotensin system are frequent, and the drugs used in them are numerous and show great variability in therapeutic effects and adverse reactions. Genetic variants have been detected ...
Micropropagación masiva de Stevia Rebaudiana Bertoni en sistemas de inmersión temporal
(Revista Cultivos Tropicales, 2015)
Stevia rebaudiana Bertoni, Asteraceae, is a natural sweetener called “Stevia”. Its properties came from the diterpenoid glycosides presented in the leaves: a stevioside and rebaudisioside. The percentage of seed ...
A review of the critics of invasion biology
(Cambridge Philosophical Society, 2020-10)
Herein, I review existing criticisms of the field of invasion biology. Firstly, I identifiy problems of conceptual weaknesses,including disagreements regarding: (i) definitions of invasive, impact, and pristine conditions, ...
Identification of the agr Peptide of Listeria monocytogenes
(Frontiers in Microbiology, 2016)
Listeria monocytogenes (Lm) is an important food-borne human pathogen that is able to strive under a wide range of environmental conditions. Its accessory gene regulator (agr) system was shown to impact on biofilm formation ...
The structure of MESSI biological systems
(Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, 2018-06)
We introduce a general framework for biological systems, called MESSI systems, that describe Modifications of type Enzyme-Substrate or Swap with Intermediates, and we prove general results based on the network structure. ...
Tackling the complexity of nonalcoholic steatohepatitis treatment: challenges and opportunities based on systems biology and machine learning approaches
(AME Publishing Company, 2018-12)
Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is regarded as the most frequent cause of chronic liver damage (1,2). The natural history of the disease presents a complex scenario of potential progression into severe clinical ...
