It’s all about the right balance

Collaborative work of research groups at the University of Würzburg and the TU Dresden has provided important new insights for cancer research. During cell division specific target proteins have to…

How deadly parasites ‘glide’ into human cells

Gliding movements to invade host cells. In biological terms, gliding refers to the type of movement during which a cell moves along a surface without changing its shape. This form…

What time is it on your biological clock?

Interdisciplinary research team of Friedrich Schiller University Jena, the Leibniz Institute on Aging – Fritz Lipmann Institute and Jena University Hospital receives 4.5 million euros in funding from the Carl…

What lies between grey and white in the brain

Traditionally, neuroscience regards the brain as being made up of two basic tissue types. Until very recently, not much was known about the interface between the white and grey matter…

Efficient pollen identification

Interdisciplinary team of researchers combines image-based particle analysis with artificial intelligence. From pollen forecasting, honey analysis and climate-related changes in plant-pollinator interactions, analysing pollen plays an important role in many…

Hunger encourages risk-taking

Meta-analysis by research team from the universities of Bielefeld and Jena shows that in animals, difficult living conditions increase risk-taking behaviour in later life The lives of animals in the…

Solar-battery effect enables a new light-driven organic microswimmer to operate in the dark

An interdisciplinary team of scientists at the Max Planck Institutes for Intelligent Systems and Solid State Research has developed a biocompatible microswimmer made of carbon nitride, which they can propel…

Boundaries no barrier for thermoelectricity

Rice researchers find potentially useful electrical phenomenon in gold nanowires Though the Summer Olympics were postponed, there’s at least one place to see agile hurdlers go for the gold. You…

Observation charge accumulation at nanocavity on plasmonic photocatalyst

Strong interaction between plasmonic nanoparticles and free-space light induced the evanescently confined modes on the nanoparticle surfaces, which holds great promise in plasmonic nanophotonic technologies. Plasmonic nanoparticle with the capability…

Natural radiation can interfere with quantum computers
