Bio-Nector is an exclusively Internet and e-mail-based service relying on a simple principle: as a matchmaking service, it brokers contacts between companies wishing to outsource services and suitable service providers.
When looking for such a “partner agency”, companies now no longer have to seek and individually contact possible providers with all the expenditures of time and money this entails. Bio-Nector provides several replies by possible service providers per e-mail to each and every inquiry.
Effective immediately, Bio-Nector is open for registration to interested service providers free of charge. As soon as Bio-Nector is accessible and on-line to inquirers, providers will be notified of all inquiries pertaining to their area of expertise free of charge. Only if and when the respective company answers an inquiry will a charge be levied.
From the winter of 2006, Bio-Nector will be online and thus accessible to inquirers. It will be quite easy to use.
1. Formulate your inquiry at www.bio-nector.com freely and anonymously: Companies (inquirers) may freely formulate in some few sentences the requirements the service provider they seek needs to meet and select the field of expertise concerned. They will then provide their e-mail address and send the inquiry to Bio-Nector. Their inquiry will be forwarded anonymously (without the inquirer’s e-mail address) to the service providers registered for the selected area of expertise.
2. Accepting replies: Bio-Nector will directly forward individual replies sent in by the service providers to the inquirer.
3. Select and directly contact a service provider: Thanks to the replies, the inquirer is provided with a synopsis of possible service providers. He may now choose whom to contact and do so directly (announcing his identity).
Bio-Nector embarks on novel ways to bring together offers and demands in the pharmaceutical and biotech industries. As a complement and alternative to seeking the requisite information in lists or acting on personal recommendations, Bio-Nector offers the possibility to quickly inform yourself about various possible service providers without expending a lot of time and money. Thus, Bio-Nector creates more transparent information in a highly heterogeneous market and is suitable for seeking service providers in all phases of research and development in the pharma and biotech industries, from basic research to pre-clinical and clinical development and production, regulatory, and marketing/sales issues.
The Bio-Nector principle is also applied to other special areas of expertise (e.g. matching for fairs) and enjoys high acclaim by both service providers and inquirers.

The pyrenoid is a carbon-fixing liquid droplet
22.09.2017 | Max-Planck-Institut für Biochemie
Plants and algae use the enzyme Rubisco to fix carbon dioxide, removing it from the atmosphere and converting it into biomass. Algae have figured out a way to increase the efficiency of carbon fixation. They gather most of their Rubisco into a ball-shaped microcompartment called the pyrenoid, which they flood with a high local concentration of carbon dioxide. A team of scientists at Princeton University, the Carnegie Institution for Science, Stanford University and the Max Plank Institute of Biochemistry have unravelled the mysteries of how the pyrenoid is assembled. These insights can help to engineer crops that remove more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere while producing more food.

Our brains house extremely complex neuronal circuits, whose detailed structures are still largely unknown. This is especially true for the so-called cerebral cortex of mammals, where among other things vision, thoughts or spatial orientation are being computed. Here the rules by which nerve cells are connected to each other are only partly understood. A team of scientists around Moritz Helmstaedter at the Frankfiurt Max Planck Institute for Brain Research and Helene Schmidt (Humboldt University in Berlin) have now discovered a surprisingly precise nerve cell connectivity pattern in the part of the cerebral cortex that is responsible for orienting the individual animal or human in space.
The researchers report online in Nature (Schmidt et al., 2017. Axonal synapse sorting in medial entorhinal cortex, DOI: 10.1038/nature24005) that synapses in...

Using ultrafast flashes of laser and x-ray radiation, scientists at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics (Garching, Germany) took snapshots of the briefest electron motion inside a solid material to date. The electron motion lasted only 750 billionths of the billionth of a second before it fainted, setting a new record of human capability to capture ultrafast processes inside solids!
When x-rays shine onto solid materials or large molecules, an electron is pushed away from its original place near the nucleus of the atom, leaving a hole...
For the first time, physicists have successfully imaged spiral magnetic ordering in a multiferroic material. These materials are considered highly promising candidates for future data storage media. The researchers were able to prove their findings using unique quantum sensors that were developed at Basel University and that can analyze electromagnetic fields on the nanometer scale. The results – obtained by scientists from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics, the Swiss Nanoscience Institute, the University of Montpellier and several laboratories from University Paris-Saclay – were recently published in the journal Nature.
Multiferroics are materials that simultaneously react to electric and magnetic fields. These two properties are rarely found together, and their combined...
