...discuss Science, Industry & Society and the Great Challenges to Humanity at Europe’s most international biotechnology congress.

Sunday 16 September through Wednesday 19 September, over 1200 leading life scientists, biotechnology sector leaders, and officials from 65 countries will gather in Barcelona at the 13th European Congress on Biotechnology to discuss Science, Industry and Society, cutting edge science in all disciplines of biotechnology, and science’s role and responsibility in addressing the great challenges to humanity in the developing countries as well as improving quality of life for society in Europe and world-wide.

Leading scientists from academia and industry will address these issues in the Science, Industry & Society central theme of the Congress, and cutting edge science in the 4 other key streams of the Congress, Health & Medicine, Functional Genomics & Systems Biology, Industrial Biotechnology, Green Biotechnology. This is an ideal example of scientists coming together from around the world to focus not only cutting edge science in their scientific disciplines, but cross disciplinary cooperation and the application of science in benefit of humanity.

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...
