    Abstract The Coalition for Conservation Genetics (CCG) brings together four eminent organizations with the shared goal of improving the integration of genetic information into conservation policy and practice. We provide a historical context of conservation genetics as a field and reflect on current barriers to conserving genetic diversity, highlighting the need for collaboration across traditional divides, international partnerships, and coordinated advocacy. We then introduce the CCG and illustrate through examples how a coalition approach can leverage complementary expertise and improve the organizational impact at multiple levels. The CCG has proven particularly successful at implementing large synthesis-type projects, training early-career scientists, and advising policy makers. Achievements to date highlight the potential for the CCG to make effective contributions to practical conservation policy and management that no one “parent” organization could achieve on its own. Finally, we reflect on the lessons learned through forming the CCG, and our vision for the future

    Relative ηc\eta_c to J/ψJ/\psi differential production cross-sections for prompt production. The uncertainties are statistical, systematic, and due to the ηc→ppˉ{\eta_c\to p\bar{p}} and J/ψ→ppˉ{J/\psi\to p\bar{p}} branching fractions, respectively

    Differential production cross-sections of ηc\eta_c for production in bb-hadron inclusive decays. The uncertainties are statistical, systematic, and due to the ηc→ppˉ\eta_c\to p \bar{p} and J/ψ→ppˉJ/\psi\to p \bar{p} branching fractions and J/ψJ/\psi production cross-section

    The element |Vcb| of the Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa matrix is measured using semileptonic Bs0 decays produced in proton-proton collision data collected with the LHCb detector at center-of-mass energies of 7 and 8 TeV, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 3 fb-1. Rates of Bs0\u2192Ds-\u3bc+\u3bd\u3bc and Bs0\u2192Ds 17-\u3bc+\u3bd\u3bc decays are analyzed using hadronic form-factor parametrizations derived either by Caprini, Lellouch and Neubert (CLN) or by Boyd, Grinstein and Lebed (BGL). The measured values of |Vcb| are (41.4\ub10.6\ub10.9\ub11.2) 710-3 and (42.3\ub10.8\ub10.9\ub11.2) 710-3 in the CLN and BGL parametrization, respectively. The first uncertainty is statistical, the second systematic, and the third is due to the external inputs used in the measurement. These results are in agreement with those obtained from decays of B+ and B0 mesons. They are the first determinations of |Vcb| at a hadron-collider experiment and the first using Bs0 meson decays

    A search for CP violation in the \u39bb0\u2192p\u3c0-\u3c0+\u3c0- decay is performed using LHCb data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 6.6 fb-1 collected in pp collisions at center-of-mass energies of 7, 8 and 13 TeV. The analysis uses both triple product asymmetries and the unbinned energy test method. The highest significances of CP asymmetry are 2.9 standard deviations from triple product asymmetries and 3.0 standard deviations for the energy test method. Once the global p-value is considered, all results are consistent with no CP violation. Parity violation is observed at a significance of 5.5 standard deviations for the triple product asymmetry method and 5.3 standard deviations for the energy test method. The reported deviations are given in regions of phase space
