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: DNA repair: a new letter in the cell alphabet

Results reveal how discoveries may be hidden in scientific “blind spots”

Cells need to repair damaged DNA in our genes to prevent the development of cancer and other diseases. Our cells therefore activate and send “repair-proteins”...

Im Focus: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Mimicking nature's cellular architectures via 3-D printing

Research offers new level of control over the structure of 3-D printed materials

Nature does amazing things with limited design materials. Grass, for example, can support its own weight, resist strong wind loads, and recover after being...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
