At the beginning of July in Leipzig, several hundred international experts in monitoring biological diversity will advise how the enormous gaps in knowledge about global biodiversity can be closed. Background: The signatories of the UN Convention on Biodiversity (CBD), which includes Germany, have committed to halt the damage to biodiversity by 2020 and to reverse the trend. Without data this internationally binding goal can not be implemented efficiently and still less verified.
The first conference of this kind was initiated by GEO BON, an international organisation which concerns itself with monitoring and collating global...28.06.2016 | Read more

Biobanks are valuable assets for leading-edge medical and environmental research. Against this background, representatives from international biobank communities are assembling at ISBER’s Annual Meeting & Exhibits conference from 5 to 8 April 2016 in Berlin – with the aim of transferring knowledge and exploring the latest biobanking ideas and developments. By international comparison, German initiatives have made significant progress in recent years. During the session on 5 April, National Biobanking Day in Germany, leading experts from the nation will present the insights gained in medical biobanking.
Biobanking in Germany is largely funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), and is a key resource for medical and epidemiological...05.04.2016 | Read more
3D printing revolutionized the manufacturing of complex shapes in the last few years. Using additive depositing of materials, where individual dots or lines...
R2D2, a joint project to analyze and development high-TRL processes and technologies for manufacture of flexible organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) has been successfully completed.
In contrast to point light sources like LEDs made of inorganic semiconductor crystals, organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) are light-emitting surfaces. Their...
High resolution rotational spectroscopy reveals an unprecedented number of conformations of an odorant molecule – a new world record!

Strands of cow cartilage substitute for ink in a 3D bioprinting process that may one day create cartilage patches for worn out joints, according to a team of engineers. "Our goal is to create tissue that can be used to replace large amounts of worn out tissue or design patches," said Ibrahim T. Ozbolat, associate professor of engineering science and mechanics. "Those who have osteoarthritis in their joints suffer a lot. We need a new alternative treatment for this."
Cartilage is a good tissue to target for scale-up bioprinting because it is made up of only one cell type and has no blood vessels within the tissue. It is...
Physicists in Innsbruck have realized the first quantum simulation of lattice gauge theories, building a bridge between high-energy theory and atomic physics. In the journal Nature, Rainer Blatt‘s and Peter Zoller’s research teams describe how they simulated the creation of elementary particle pairs out of the vacuum by using a quantum computer.
Elementary particles are the fundamental buildings blocks of matter, and their properties are described by the Standard Model of particle physics. The...
