The Innovative Regional Growth Core "BioOK" aims to establish the region Rostock-Schwerin - especially the AgroBioTechnikum Groß Lüsewitz - as a competence centre for the analysis, assessment and monitoring of agro biotechnological products and methods. Partners from science and economy co-operate to develop new, efficient and cost effective methods and to bring them to market in the One-top-Agency BioOK GmbH. The Initiative started with funding by the German Ministry of Education and Research, BMBF.
The network BioOK offers a complete portfolio of analytical procedures for risk assessment of genetically modified plants. BioOK is a confederation of five companies, one Steinbeis Transfer Centre and the University of Rostock. The partners of BioOK hold long-standing experience in essential procedures for the assessment of food, feed, pharmaceutical and pesticide security. These methods will be adopted in order to analyse environmental and food/ feed risks of genetically modified plants and to develop new, simple, standardised, fast and legal procedures. The German Ministry for Education and Research funds these research projects of BioOK .

What enables electrons to be transferred swiftly, for example during photosynthesis? An interdisciplinary team of researchers has worked out the details of how...
For the first time, scientists have precisely measured the effective electrical charge of a single molecule in solution. This fundamental insight of an SNSF Professor could also pave the way for future medical diagnostics.
Electrical charge is one of the key properties that allows molecules to interact. Life itself depends on this phenomenon: many biological processes involve...
At the JEC World Composite Show in Paris in March 2018, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be focusing on the latest trends and innovations in laser machining of composites. Among other things, researchers at the booth shared with the Aachen Center for Integrative Lightweight Production (AZL) will demonstrate how lasers can be used for joining, structuring, cutting and drilling composite materials.
No other industry has attracted as much public attention to composite materials as the automotive industry, which along with the aerospace industry is a driver...
Scientists at Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) and Tohoku University have developed high-quality GFO epitaxial films and systematically investigated their ferroelectric and ferromagnetic properties. They also demonstrated the room-temperature magnetocapacitance effects of these GFO thin films.
Multiferroic materials show magnetically driven ferroelectricity. They are attracting increasing attention because of their fascinating properties such as...
