Loss of function of folylpolyglutamate synthetase 1 reduces lignin content and improves cell wall digestibility in Arabidopsis

Description: This article observes genetic and biochemical support for the importance of folylpolyglutamates in the lignocellulosic pathway and reinforces previous observations that targeting a single FPGS isoform for down-regulation leads to reduced lignin in plants.

Rediscovery of the Elements: The Rare Earths - The Confusing Years

Description: This article gives a timeline of research conducted on the rare earths, 17 elements found in the f-block and Group III chemical family of the Periodic Table. It covers discoveries made after the success of Swedish chemist, Carl Gustaf Mosander. The article describes the categorization of the rare earths that took place after Mosander's time, as well as separation techniques that developed.

Evaluating player task engagement and arousal using electroencephalography

Description: This paper from the 6th International Conference on Applied Human Factors and Ergonomics and the Affiliated Conference, AHFE 2015 conference proceedings coordinate task engagement data with arousal-valence data for application to expressive transformations to video game play in real time by tuning different performance parameters in an Engagement-Arousal rule system.

Multireference Character for 4d Transition Metal-Containing Molecules

Description: This article proposes new criteria, namely T₁ ≥ 0.045, D₁ ≥ 0.120, and %TAE ≥ 10%, as a gauge for 4d transition metal-containing molecules to predic the possible need to employ multireference (MR) wave function-based methods to describe energetic and spectroscopic properties.
