Pulsed lasers in liquids speed up hunt for effective catalysts

Chemical catalysts are the change agents behind the production of just about everything we use in our daily lives, from plastics to prescription drugs. When the right catalysts are mixed…

Cell-to-cell contacts control liver regeneration

Dresden and Cambridge researchers identify cell type that regulates liver regeneration with touch. From the time of Aristotle, it has been known that the human liver has the greatest regenerative…

A long day for microbes, and the rise of oxygen on Earth

Life on Earth today relies on the presence of oxygen. However, the process behind the step-wise rise of oxygen levels in the atmosphere, which took place over nearly two billion…

Manganese instead of precious metals

Manganese could make luminescent materials and the conversion of sunlight more sustainable. University of Basel researchers have reached an important milestone in their quest to produce more sustainable luminescent materials…

Mapping of Genetic Control Elements in the Cerebellum

The mammalian cerebellum has long been associated almost exclusively with motor control, yet recent studies indicate that it also contributes to many higher brain functions. An international research team led…

A novel route to energy saving technologies in the IT sector

Controlling ferrimagnets by voltage… For the first time, an international research team with participants from Chemnitz University of Technology and IFW Dresden demonstrate 180° magnetization reversal purely by electric fields…

The complex task of staying on course

Walking blindfolded in a straight line is a difficult task. Most of the time, we end up running in circles. Fruit flies that are blind to motion have similar problems…

Remember more by taking breaks

We remember things longer if we take breaks during learning, referred to as the spacing effect. Scientists at the Max Planck Institute of Neurobiology gained deeper insight into the neuronal…

Tracking the movement of a single nanoparticle

Based on the principle of interaction between matter and light, a new method has been developed to track and observe the Brownian motion of fast-moving nanometer-sized molecules, and measure the…

HKUST Unlock Genomic Secrets of Deep-sea Tubeworm

Researchers from The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) have decoded the chromosomal-level genome of a deep-sea gutless tubeworm and the genome of its co-living “partner” – a…
