Plants are networkers

19.06.2017

Invitation to the 3rd international Leibniz Plant Biochemistry Symposium

Plants are masters of adaptation. They almost have always means to defend themselves against pathogens, climate fluctuations, and extreme weather conditions.

Only with their sensitive antennas and emergency call programs have they been able to survive for millions of years. Looking for allies in this battle is part of their survival strategy.

They interact with fungi, bacteria, and insects in order to ward off enemies or to attract the enemies of their enemies. Plant network tactics are the focus of the 3rd Leibniz Plant Biochemistry Symposium in Halle an der Saale.

Seven high-ranking plant experts from Germany and Israel will present their latest research results for discussion at this international symposium on 22 and 23 June 2017 at the Leibniz Institute of Plant Biochemistry.

Anyone interested, in particular students and young scientists, is cordially invited to this unique gathering of experts in central Germany. Admission is free. Registration is required however because space is limited. Please visit our website for the program and further information for registration.

Im Focus: It’s All in the Mix: Jülich Researchers are Developing Fast-Charging Solid-State Batteries

There are currently great hopes for solid-state batteries. They contain no liquid parts that could leak or catch fire. For this reason, they do not require cooling and are considered to be much safer, more reliable, and longer lasting than traditional lithium-ion batteries. Jülich scientists have now introduced a new concept that allows currents up to ten times greater during charging and discharging than previously described in the literature. The improvement was achieved by a “clever” choice of materials with a focus on consistently good compatibility. All components were made from phosphate compounds, which are well matched both chemically and mechanically.

The low current is considered one of the biggest hurdles in the development of solid-state batteries. It is the reason why the batteries take a relatively long...

Im Focus: Color effects from transparent 3D-printed nanostructures

New design tool automatically creates nanostructure 3D-print templates for user-given colors
Scientists present work at prestigious SIGGRAPH conference

Most of the objects we see are colored by pigments, but using pigments has disadvantages: such colors can fade, industrial pigments are often toxic, and...

Im Focus: Unraveling the nature of 'whistlers' from space in the lab

A new study sheds light on how ultralow frequency radio waves and plasmas interact

Scientists at the University of California, Los Angeles present new research on a curious cosmic phenomenon known as "whistlers" -- very low frequency packets...

Im Focus: New interactive machine learning tool makes car designs more aerodynamic

Scientists develop first tool to use machine learning methods to compute flow around interactively designable 3D objects. Tool will be presented at this year’s prestigious SIGGRAPH conference.

When engineers or designers want to test the aerodynamic properties of the newly designed shape of a car, airplane, or other object, they would normally model...

Im Focus: Robots as 'pump attendants': TU Graz develops robot-controlled rapid charging system for e-vehicles

Researchers from TU Graz and their industry partners have unveiled a world first: the prototype of a robot-controlled, high-speed combined charging system (CCS) for electric vehicles that enables series charging of cars in various parking positions.

Global demand for electric vehicles is forecast to rise sharply: by 2025, the number of new vehicle registrations is expected to reach 25 million per year....
