Mucosal antibacterial proteins of cold water fish: Discovering molecules involved in disease resistance

Antimicrobial peptides (AMPs) are protective molecules produced by all living organisms, and are present particularly at the epithelial surfaces of the host that are exposed to the external environment. They are key components of the innate immune system and fish rely on them for protection from...

Dark energy and Structure Formation in the Universe

Cosmic structure formation is one of the main tools to understand the nature of the yet unknown dark energy component of the universe. In the linear regime of structure formation, the basic features of dark energy can be easily extracted, though they are usually degenerate among different models...

Climatic variability and latitudinal patterns in breeding phenology of an obligate brood parasite

Current climate change is having impacts across trophic chains and the interactions among parasites and their hosts are likely to be affected as well. In addition, the rate of temperature rise is not spatially coherent and this provides a good opportunity to study the spatial nature of the host-...

Meaning Beyond Truth-Conditions: From Vagueness to Linguistic Interpretation

In formal semantics, the meaning of a sentence is its truth-conditions. But that is not uncontroversial. There is a vast recent literature on what could be called the underdeterminacy thesis, which basically says that meaning underdetermines truth-conditi ons. And there are individual areas of re...
