How much can bulk stores help reduce carbon footprint by limiting plastic food packaging ?

Jarel Rodriguez, Anaïs ; Milet, Emmanuel (Dir.)

Mémoire de bachelor : Haute école de gestion de Genève, 2020 ; TDIBM 67.

This report focuses on the quantity of food packaging waste consumed by an average single individual, residing in Switzerland. It is based on the household budget survey published by the Federal Statistical Office (FSO). This budget survey mentions the food quantities monthly consumed by a single individual and thus, the packaging waste could be computed accordingly. The objective is to compare...

Tissue-specific transcription footprinting using RNA PoI DamID (RAPID) in Caenorhabditis elegans

Gómez-Saldivar, Georgina ; Osuna-Luque, Jaime ; Semple, Jennifer I. ; Glauser, Dominique A. ; Jarriault, Sophie ; Meister, Peter

In: Genetics, 2020, vol. 216, no. 4, p. 931–945

Differential gene expression across cell types underlies development and cell physiology in multicellular organisms. Caenorhabditis elegans is a powerful, extensively used model to address these biological questions. A remaining bottleneck relates to the difficulty to obtain comprehensive tissue-specific gene transcription data, since available methods are still challenging to execute and/or...

Do Anti-Corruption Educational Campaigns Reach Students? : Evidence from Russia and Ukraine

Denisova-Schmidt, Elena ; Huber, Martin ; Leontyeva, Elvira

In: Educational studies. Moscow, 2016, no. 1, p. 61-83

The authors investigate the effect of anti-corruption educational materials — an informational folder with materials designed by Transparency International — on the willingness of students to participate in an anti-corruption campaign and their general judgment about corruption in two cities in Russia and Ukraine by conducting experiments. During a survey of 350 students in Khabarovsk,...

Chromatic numbers of spheres

Prosanov, Roman

In: Discrete Mathematics, 2018, vol. 341, no. 11, p. 3123–3133

The chromatic number of a subset of Euclidean space is the minimal number of colors sufficient for coloring all points of this subset in such a way that any two points at the distance 1 have different colors. We give new upper bounds on chromatic numbers of spheres. This also allows us to give new upper bounds on chromatic numbers of any bounded subsets.
