Conference in Brussels: Tracking and Tracing the Smallest Marine Life Forms

30.09.2015

Invitation to the Micro B3 Final Conference from 2 to 4 November 2015

Royal Flemish Academy for Science and the Arts,
Hertogsstraat/Rue Ducale 1, B-1000 Brussels (Belgium)

Free admission!

Micro B3 is a large integrative European Project, which is processing large amounts of data from worldwide marine research campaigns with modern bioinformatic methods.

This instigated a new understanding of the diversity of marine plankton. In cooperation with biotechnologists novel opportunities are explored, how to utilize these small organisms while safeguarding marine resources.

Furthermore, Micro B3 developed international standards to enable the trans-disciplinary use of a range of different existing databases. These standards were mainly tested during the ‘Ocean Sampling Days’ (OSD), a Micro B3-initiated activity joining scientists and interested citizens worldwide.

The Micro B3 project includes 32 Partner from 14 European countries and the international organisations EMBL-EBI, ICES, IUCN and CIESM.

Im Focus: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Tracing down linear ubiquitination

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Layered 2D material improves efficiency for solar cells and LEDs

In the eternal search for next generation high-efficiency solar cells and LEDs, scientists at Los Alamos National Laboratory and their partners are creating...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Im Focus: Researchers Imitate Molecular Crowding in Cells

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
