In current project environments, requirements often evolve throughout the project and are worked on by stakeholders in large and distributed teams. Such teams often use online tools such as mailing lists, bug tracking systems or online discussion forums to communicate, clarify or coordinate work on requirements. In this kind of environment, the expected(More)
Phycocyanin is a phycobiliprotein involved in light harvesting and conduction of light to the reaction centers in cyanobacteria and red algae. The structure of C-phycocyanin from Gracilaria chilensis was solved by X-ray crystallography at 2.0 A resolution in space group P2(1). An interaction model between two PC heterohexamers was built, followed by(More)
GitHub is a popular source code hosting site which serves as a collaborative coding platform. The many features of GitHub have greatly facilitated developers' collaboration, communication, and coordination. Gists are one feature of GitHub, which defines them as "a simple way to share snippets and pastes with others." This three-part study explores how users(More)
One of the many effects of social media in software development is the flourishing of very large communities of practice where members share a common interest, such as programming languages, frameworks, and tools. These communities of practice use many different communication channels but little is known about how these communities create, share, and curate(More)
In Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) projects based on Linux systems, the users usually install the software from distributions. The distributions act as intermediaries between software developers and users. Distributors collect the source code of the different projects and package them, ready to be installed by the users.

Previous research has documented the legal and economic aspects of software patents. To study the evolution in the granting of software patents we reproduced and extended part of the empirical study on software patents conducted by Bessen and Hunt. The original study established a criteria to identify software patents, and provided a look at the evolution(More)
Protein-protein interactions (PPIs) are known for its important role in diverse biological processes. One of the crucial issues to understand and classify PPI is to characterize their interfaces in order to discriminate between transient and permanent complexes. The stability of protein-protein interactions depends on the energetic features of interaction(More)
