Novel sensor implant radically improves significance of NMR brain scans

Researchers present a new method that shows single neuron data

27-Nov-2019

A team of neuroscientists and electrical engineers from Germany and Switzerland developed a highly sensitive implant that enables to probe brain physiology with unparalleled spatial and temporal resolution. Now published in Nature Methods, they introduce an ultra-fine needle with an integrated ...

How graphene nanoparticles improve the resolution of microscopes

Small particles, big effects

22-Nov-2019

Conventional light microscopes cannot distinguish structures when they are separated by a distance smaller than, roughly, the wavelength of light. Superresolution microscopy, developed since the 1980s, lifts this limitation, using fluorescent moieties. Scientists at the Max Planck Institute for ...

Swiss Army Knife for Genome Research

Multifunctional tool CRUP makes enhancer prediction quick and easy

21-Nov-2019

It is the the dream of every molecular geneticist: an easy-to-use program that compares data sets from different cellular conditions, identifies enhancer regions and then assigns them to their target genes. A research team led by Professor Martin Vingron at the Max Planck Institute for Molecular ...

Distorted Atoms

11-Nov-2019

In two experiments performed at the free-electron laser FLASH in Hamburg a cooperation led by physicists from the Heidelberg Max Planck Institute for Nuclear physics (MPIK) demonstrated strongly-driven nonlinear interaction of ultrashort extreme-ultraviolet (XUV) laser pulses with atoms and ions. ...

The recipe for making a fruit fly

Scientists use mass spectrometry to determine the absolute copy number of nuclear proteins and histone marks

21-Oct-2019

Currently, most if not all of the proteins that are required for constructing a multicellular organism are known. However, it is largely unclear how many copies of each protein species are present and needed to permit an animal to develop into a complete organism. Researchers at the Max Planck ...

Diagnostics for everyone

Researchers present a cost-effective machine for the production of microarrays

16-Oct-2019

Microarrays are state-of-the-art tools in molecular biology that enable the rapid and parallel diagnosis of various diseases. Therefore, they are indispensable for the development of new vaccines. Like a computer chip, microarrays contain a lot of information in the smallest space. Microarrays ...

Biomarkers indicate health in old age

Researchers can determine the disease vulnerability of older people using a defined set of substances in the blood

22-Aug-2019

Researchers on ageing from the Max Planck Institute for Biology of Ageing and the Leiden University Medical Center (LUMC) collaborate to link basic insights from model organisms to the causes of ageing in humans. They found a combination of biomarkers in the blood which could help estimate the ...

Direct Observation of Giant Molecules

Physicists achieved to form giant diatomic molecules and optically detect them afterwards by using a high-resolution objective

07-Jun-2019

The tiny size of conventional diatomic molecules in the sub-nanometer regime hinders direct optical resolution of their constituents. Physicists from the Quantum Many Body Division at MPQ led by Prof. Immanuel Bloch were able to bind pairs of highly excited atoms at a distance of one micrometer. ...

Multi-gene test predicts depression risk

08-Apr-2019

A risk score based on many genetic differences predicts which children and adolescents are at greater risk of depression. An international team led by Munich-based researchers have found a genetic score that reliably predicts in youths who will have depression, the severity of the depression and ...

Simulating nature’s cosmic laboratory, one helium droplet at a time

27-Mar-2019

Two astronomers from the Max Planck Institute for Astronomy and from the University of Jena have found an elegant new method to measure the energy of simple chemical reactions, under similar conditions as those encountered by atoms and molecules in the early solar system. Their method promises ...
