New insights in survival strategies of bacteria

16-09-2014

create a biofilm to protect themselves from a hostile environment, for example during treatment with antibiotics. A biofilm is a bacterial community that is surrounded by a protective slime capsule consisting of sugar chains and “curli”. Scientists at VIB and Vrije Universiteit Brussel have for ...

The shadow of a disease

Proteins such as tumour markers can be easily and sensitively detected by their scattered light

16-09-2014

In future, some diseases might be diagnosed earlier and treated more effectively. Researchers at the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light in Erlangen have developed an optical method that makes individual proteins, such as the proteins characteristic of some cancers, visible. Other ...

Gibbon genome sequenced

Mobile DNA element allows conclusions on the evolution of apes

12-09-2014

An international team of researchers that includes Christian Roos, Markus Brameier and Lutz Walter from the German Primate Center (DPZ) in Göttingen, have decoded the genome of gibbons from Southeast Asia. With this, the entire genetic information of five different species of this primate family ...

Researchers Part Water

‘Electric Prism’ Separates Water’s Nuclear Spin States

10-09-2014

Using an "electric prism", scientists have found a new way of separating water molecules that differ only in their nuclear spin states and, under normal conditions, do not part ways. Since water is such a fundamental molecule in the universe, the recent study may impact a multitude of research ...

Electronic nose can detect sub-groups of asthma in children

09-09-2014

An electronic nose can be used to successfully detect different sub-groups of asthmatic children, according to a new study. The new research, presented at the European Respiratory Society (ERS) International Congress in Munich (7 September 2014), is part of the U-BIOPRED (Unbiased biomarkers in ...
