UNLABELLED Strong evidence supports the idea that fatty acids rather than carbohydrates are the main energy source of Mycobacterium tuberculosis during infection and latency.

Erratum for Rodriguez et al., Global adaptation to a lipid environment triggers the dormancy-related phenotype of Mycobacterium tuberculosis.

The measurement of equality of opportunity deals with those inequalities of outcome due to differential circumstances. Standard approaches assume an a priori division of individuals into(More)

We show that an additive and concave utilitarian social evaluation function is consistent with the outcomes of majority voting if we restrict the class of income distributions to those that are symmetric under(More)
