Sequence and structure of the packaging signals of the influenza A virus genome. The genome of influenza A viruses consists of 8 vRNAs that associate to a polymerase complex and multiple copies of nucleoprotein. The 8 resulting ribonucleoproteins are selectively incorporated in the viral particles thanks to the presence of packaging signals on each vRNA.
The effects of family policy on labor supply and fertility decisions: Evidence from a dynamic structural micro-economic model with task-specific human capital, estimated using microdata for France and Germany – FamPol

The social uses and stakes of genetic analysis as drawn upon in judicial and police investigations in France: production and administration of evidence at the intersection between forensics and law; analysis of how the balance between respecting individual rights and keeping populations safe is socially defined and discussed; study of the changing set of boundaries between the biological and the social, the ethical and the political, the local and the global.
Optogenetic pharmacology for the precise, biochemical control of cholinergic neuromodulation – Nicopto
The Nicopto project aims at developing techniques for the remote, spatially precise control of endogenous neuronal receptors in the living animal. These innovative techniques could change the landscape of our understanding of the roles of these receptors in neuronal information processing.
Vertical chains designate industry structures where some firms (at the upstream level) supply other firms (at the downstream level). Imperfect competition usually prevails at both levels, and upstream and downstream firms also bargain with one another.
An alternative health care perspective to treat major depressive disorder is to develop preventive strategies to limit its progress. The estimated ratio of n-6:n-3 n-3 Poly-Unsaturated-Fatty-Acids (PUFA) in a typical Western diet is around 20:1, in contrast with the optimal 1:4 ratio. The risk of developing depression has been associated to low diet n-3 PUFA content.
The objective is to provide researchers in the field of biomedical imaging with an efficient information system in order to help them make optimal use of their data during their research activities on large groups of subjects, and to enable the reuse of available data for clinic and fundamental research in a context and for a purpose other than the one for which they have been acquired.
Dynamical magnetoelectric effects: probe and theory of hybride excitations
The Southern Ocean plays a major role in the regulation of the world's climate. From an ecological viewpoint it is one of the most productive regions of our planet. It harbours, among other things, the largest communities of seabirds, whose state of health depends directly on the resources of the sea. The large decrease in numbers in the majority of these bird populations suggests a major disturbance in this ecosystem. In order to assess the vulnerability of the Southern Ocean with respect to environmental changes, the PICASO project team has focused its attention on penguins in particular. Aided by a remote-operated vehicle (rover) "disguised" as a penguin chick, the scientists are studying their reproduction and survival on the scale of the population and on each individual bird. The aim is to obtain a better understanding of the overall state of health of this ocean.
