A rich source of nutrients under the Earth’s ice sheets

Data from Greenland and Antarctica show: under ice trace elements are mobilised at higher rates than previously assumed. Trace elements such as iron, manganese and zinc are an integral part…

Life cycle of moon jellyfish depends on the microbiome

Research team at Kiel University uses Aurelia aurita as an example to demonstrate the relationship between microbial colonization and reproduction in marine cnidarians The body tissue of all multicellular living…

Austrian study provides deep insights into transmission and mutation properties of SARS-CoV-2

In the COVID-19 pandemic, 57 million people have already been infected worldwide. In the search for vaccines and therapies, a precise understanding of the virus, its mutations and transmission mechanisms…

Understanding frustration could lead to better drugs

Rice scientists’ atomic resolution protein models reveal new details about protein binding. Knowing precisely where proteins are frustrated could go a long way toward making better drugs. That’s one result…

Identifying compound classes through machine learning

Bioinformaticians at Friedrich Schiller University Jena, Germany together with colleagues from Finland and the USA, have now developed a unique method with which all metabolites in a sample can be…

A sulfur molecule to block the coronavirus

Some viruses can get inside cells via a mechanism that involves sulfur organic molecules. Chemists at UNIGE have discovered effective inhibitors and blocked the uptake of SARS-CoV-2. The cell membrane…

Green hydrogen: buoyancy-driven convection in the electrolyte

Hydrogen can be produced with renewable energies in a climate neutral way and could make a major contribution to the energy system of the future. One of the options is…

Near-infrared probe decodes telomere dynamics

A repetitive DNA sequence that causes health risks when it malfunctions can now be watched inside living cells using a synthetic tool. A new synthetic probe offers a safe and…

Folding of SARS-CoV2 genome reveals drug targets

– and preparation for “SARS-CoV3” For the first time, an international research alliance has observed the RNA folding structures of the SARS-CoV2 genome with which the virus controls the infection…

A filter for environmental remediation

Scientists at Osaka University create seaweed-shaped sodium titanate mats made of nanofibers that can remove cobalt ions from water, which may help provide a source of safe, recycled drinking water…
