Neurons in the visual system of flies

… exhibit surprisingly heterogeneous wiring. Analysis of the connectome of Drosophila melanogaster provides new insights into how its visual system is organized / Research contribution by the FlyWire Consortium. An…

The embryo assembles itself

New mathematical framework sheds light on how cells communicate to form an embryo. Biological processes depend on puzzle pieces coming together and interacting. Under specific conditions, these interactions can create…

Toolkit makes protein design faster and more accessible

Researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Biology Tübingen, the University of Tübingen, and the University Hospital Tübingen have developed a web-based toolkit to accelerate and simplify protein design without…

Giant viruses found on Greenland ice sheet

The viruses probably regulate the growth of snow algae on the ice by infecting them. Knowing how to control these viruses could help us reduce some of the ice from…

PFAS-free polymer membranes for semiconductor processing

Due to their stability and resistance to water and grease, PFAS chemicals are used in a wide range industries, but they are harmful to health and the environment. Membranes containing…

Skin models as an alternative to animal testing

Animal testing has long been a fixture of medical and pharmaceutical research, but alternative methods are growing more and more important. Innovative methods allow for research aimed directly at humans…
