    The complete mitogenome of Buccinum undatum obtained from transcriptome analysis is presented here. The mitogenome is 15,265 bp in length and comprises 13 protein-coding genes, 2 ribosomal subunit genes, and 22 transfer RNAs. The complete genome was ...
  • Sveinbjornsdottir, Sigrun; Thorsteinsson, Einar; Lingam, Govinda Ishwar (Cambridge University Press (CUP), 2017)
    A two-dimensional theory of adolescent coping with cross-cultural and cross-Human Development Index Categories (HDI) application was tested: the Measure of Adolescent Coping Strategies (MACS). The MACS was answered by 809 adolescents of diverse origins ...
  • Thorhallsson, Albert Th.; Benediktsson, Bardi; Bjornsson, Ragnar (Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC), 2019-10-15)
    Molybdenum nitrogenase is one of the most intriguing metalloenzymes in nature, featuring an exotic iron-molybdenum-sulfur cofactor, FeMoco, whose mode of action remains elusive. In particular, the molecular and electronic structure of the N2-binding ...

    Afterglow is an important phenomenon in luminescent materials and can be desired (e.g., persistent phosphors) or undesired (e.g., scintillators). Understanding and predicting afterglow is often based on analysis of thermally stimulated luminescence ...
  • Khamespanah, Ehsan (2018-06)
    In the recent years, formal modeling and verification of realtime systems have become very important. Difficult-to-use modeling languages and inefficient analysis tools are the main obstacles to use formal methods in this domain. Timed actor model is ...
  • Wirbel, Anna; Jarosch, Alexander H.; Nicholson, Lindsey (Copernicus GmbH, 2018-01-19)
    Glaciers with extensive surface debris cover respond differently to climate forcing than those without supraglacial debris. In order to include debris-covered glaciers in projections of glaciogenic runoff and sea level rise and to understand the ...
  • Tarsi, Matteo (Language Centre – University of Cyprus, 2018)
    The present article deals with the development of basic linguistic terminology in Icelandic. Such terminology pertains to five categories (general, graphematics, phonetics, morphology and lexicon) and has been collected from 19 different sources from ...
