Memories of the "liberation of Kosovo" among Albanian-speaking activists in Switzerland : narrating transnational belonging to the nation

Farquet, Romaine ; Dahinden, Janine (Dir.) ; Duijzings, Ger (Codir.) ; Schwander-Sievers, Stephanie (Codir.) ; Lacroix, Thomas (Codir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2019.

La population albanophone vivant en Suisse s'est massivement mobilisée pour la cause nationale au Kosovo dans les années 1990. Après la fin du conflit, qui a vu le départ des forces serbes du Kosovo en 1999, des albanophones de Suisse sont retourné.es dans leur patrie. Beaucoup d'autres sont resté.es en Suisse, où ils/elles ont largement diminué, voire même mis fin...

Under-detection of endospore-forming Firmicutes in metagenomic data

Filippidou, Sevasti ; Junier, Thomas ; Wunderlin, Tina ; Lo, Chien-Chi ; Li, Po-E ; Chain, Patrick S ; Junier, Pilar

In: Computational and Structural Biotechnology Journal, 2015, vol. 13, p. 299-206

Microbial diversity studies based on metagenomic sequencing have greatly enhanced our knowledge of the microbial world. However, one caveat is the fact that not all microorganisms are equally well detected, questioning the universality of this approach. Firmicutes are known to be a dominant bacterial group. Several Firmicutes species are endospore formers and this property makes...

Ecosystem engineers’ contribution to soil structure formation in floodplains

Schomburg, Andreas ; Le Bayon, Claire (Dir.) ; Guenat, Claire (Codir.) ; Brunner, Philip (Codir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2019.

La formation de la structure du sol est un processus primordial en zone alluviale semi-naturelle et revitalisée. Une structure du sol stable protège les berges de l’érosion et contribue à la préservation des services écosystémiques de ce type de milieux. Cependant, la mise en place de la structure des sols alluviaux est délicate pour plusieurs raisons. La dynamique alluviale très...

Quench dynamics and Hall response of interacting Chern insulators

Schüler, Michael ; Budich, Jan Carl ; Werner, Philipp

In: Physical Review B, 2019, vol. 100, no. 4, p. 041101

We study the coherent nonequilibrium dynamics of interacting two-dimensional systems after a quench from a trivial to a topological Chern insulator phase. While the many-body wave function is constrained to remain topologically trivial under local unitary evolution, we find that the Hall response of the system can dynamically approach a thermal value of the postquench Hamiltonian, even though...

The C-terminal domain of TPX2 is made of alpha-helical tandem repeats

Sanchez-Pulido, Luis ; Perez, Laurent ; Kuhn, Steffen ; Vernos, Isabelle ; Andrade-Navarro, Miguel A.

In: BMC structural biology, 2016, vol. 16, p. 17

Background: TPX2 (Targeting Protein for Xklp2) is essential for spindle assembly, activation of the mitotic kinase Aurora A and for triggering microtubule nucleation. Homologs of TPX2 in Chordata and plants were previously identified. Currently, proteins of the TPX2 family have little structural information and only small parts are covered by defined protein domains. Methods: We have used ...

Eighteen years of steel–bentonite interaction in the FEBEX in situ test at the Grimsel Test Site in Switzerland

Hadi, Jebril ; Wersin, Paul ; Serneels, Vincent ; Greneche, Jean-Marc

In: Clays and Clay Minerals, 2019, vol. 67, no. 2, p. 111–131

Corrosion of steel canisters containing buried high-level radioactive waste is a relevant issue for the long-term integrity of repositories. The purpose of the present study was to evaluate this issue by examining two differently corroded blocks originating from a full-scale in situ test of the FEBEX bentonite site in Switzerland. The FEBEX experiment was designed initially as a feasibility...

Synthesis and structural analysis of polynuclear silver(I) complexes with 4,7-phenanthroline

Stanojević, Ivana M. ; Savić, Nada D. ; Crochet, Aurélien ; Fromm, Katharina M. ; Đuran, Miloš I. ; Glišić, Biljana Đ.

In: Journal of the Serbian Chemical Society, 2019, vol. 84, no. 7, p. 689–699

New polynuclear silver(I) complexes, [Ag(CF3SO3)(4,7-phen)(CH3CN)]n (1) and [Ag(PO2F2)(4,7-phen)]n (2), were synthesized by the reaction of 4,7-phenanthroline (4,7-phen) and the corresponding AgX salt (X = CF3SO3 - and PF6 -) in 1:2 mole ratio, respectively, in methanol/acetone (1:1 volume ratio) at room temperature. The characterization of the complexes was established on the basis of...

Contesting categories: cross-border marriages from the perspectives of the state, spouses and researchers

Moret, Joëlle ; Andrikopoulos, Apostolos ; Dahinden, Janine

In: Journal of Ethnic and Migration Studies, 2019, p. 1-18

Marriages that involve the migration of at least one of the spouses challenge two intersecting facets of the politics of belonging: the making of the ‘good and legitimate citizens’ and the ‘acceptable family’. In Europe, cross-border marriages have been the target of increasing state controls, an issue of public concern and the object of scholarly research. The study of cross-border...

Modulation of chemokine responses : synergy and cooperativity

Proudfoot, Amanda E.I. ; Uguccioni, Mariagrazia

In: Frontiers in immunology, 2016, vol. 7, p. 183

Chemokine biology is mediated by more complex interactions than simple monomolecular ligand–receptor interactions, as chemokines can form higher order quaternary structures, which can also be formed after binding to glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) on endothelial cells, and their receptors are found as dimers and/or oligomers at the cell surface. Due to the complexity of the chemokine binding and...

Laboratory based XAS measurements, electron-induced double K-shell ionization of Sc, Cr and Cu : and, Chemical sensitivity of photoinduced Kʰβ hypersatelite transition in Cr compounds

Zeeshan, Faisal ; Dousse, Jean-Claude (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Fribourg, 2017 ; no. 2052.

Cette thèse de doctorat contient trois différents projets qui appartiennent aux domaines de la physique atomique des couches profondes et de la spectroscopie de rayons X en haute résolution. Le premier projet concerne l’étude des spectres d’absorption (XAS) K et L de quelques éléments de transition 3d, 4d et 5d. Les mesures ont été réalisées à Fribourg avec le spectromètre à...
