New shape control tools for rational Bézier curve design

Ramanantoanina, Andriamahenina ; Hormann, Kai

In: Computer aided geometric design, 2021, vol. 88, p. 11

Bézier curves are indispensable for geometric modelling and computer graphics. They have numerous favourable properties and provide the user with intuitive tools for editing the shape of a parametric polynomial curve. Even more control and flexibility can be achieved by associating a shape parameter with each control point and considering rational Bézier curves, which comes with the...

Neuroanatomy of the spinosaurid Irritator challengeri (Dinosauria: Theropoda) indicates potential adaptations for piscivory

Schade, Marco ; Rauhut, Oliver W. M. ; Evers, Serjoscha W.

In: Scientific Reports, 2020, vol. 10, no. 1, p. 9259

Spinosauridae, a theropod group characterized by elongated snouts, conical teeth, enlarged forelimbs, and often elongated neural spines, show evidence for semiaquatic adaptations and piscivory. It is currently debated if these animals represent terrestrial carnivores with adaptations for a piscivorous diet, or if they largely lived and foraged in aquatic habitats. The holotype of Irritator...

How asbestos drives the tissue towards tumors: YAP activation, macrophage and mesothelial precursor recruitment, RNA editing, and somatic mutations

Rehrauer, Hubert ; Wu, Licun ; Blum, Walter ; Pecze, Lazslo ; Henzi, Thomas ; Serre-Beinier, Véronique ; Aquino, Catherine ; Vrugt, Bart ; Perrot, Marc de ; Schwaller, Beat ; Felley-Bosco, Emanuela

In: Oncogene, 2018, vol. 37, no. 20, p. 2645–2659

Chronic exposure to intraperitoneal asbestos triggered a marked response in the mesothelium well before tumor development. Macrophages, mesothelial precursor cells, cytokines, and growth factors accumulated in the peritoneal lavage. Transcriptome profiling revealed YAP/TAZ activation in inflamed mesothelium with further activation in tumors, paralleled by increased levels of cells with...

The International Image Interoperability Framework (IIIF) : raising awareness of the user benefits for scholarly editions

Raemy, Julien Antoine ; Schneider, René (Dir.)

Mémoire de bachelor : Haute école de gestion de Genève, 2017 ; TDB 2347.

The International Image Interoperability Framework (IIIF), an initiative born in 2011, defines a set of common application programming interfaces (APIs) to retrieve, display, manipulate, compare, and annotate digitised and born-digital images. Upon implementation, these technical specifications have offered institutions and end users alike new possibilities. In Switzerland, only a handful of...
