The RIKEN Mouse Gene Encyclopaedia Project, a systematic approach to determining the full coding potential of the mouse genome, involves collection and sequencing of full-length complementary DNAs and physical mapping of the corresponding genes to the mouse genome. We organized an international functional annotation meeting (FANTOM) to annotate the first(More)
Interacting conduction electrons are usually described within Fermi-liquid theory, which states that, in spite of strong interactions, the low-energy excitations are electron-like quasiparticles with charge and spin. In recent years there has been tremendous interest in conducting systems that are not Fermi liquids, motivated by the observation of highly(More)
The Rosetta spacecraft has investigated comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko from large heliocentric distances to its perihelion passage and beyond. We trace the seasonal and diurnal evolution of the colors of the 67P nucleus, finding changes driven by sublimation and recondensation of water ice. The whole nucleus became relatively bluer near perihelion, as(More)
We know from the study of past societies that some of them failed because they did not recognize the importance of their natural habitat (DIAMOND 2005). Today, the large global population stretches the resilience of the environment to a possible maximum. This is especially true in urban areas, where the majority of the global population is living today(More)
The softening of the radial breathing mode (RBM) of metallic single walled carbon nanotubes (m-SWNTs) due to electron-phonon coupling has been studied by observing the Fermi level [see text] dependence of the RBM Raman peak. In situ Raman spectra were obtained from several individual m-SWNTs while varying [see text] electrochemically. The RBM frequency of(More)
