    Plant responses to climate are lagged

    Plant responses to climate drivers such as temperature and precipitation may become visible only years after the actual climate event. This is a key result of new research led by the German Centre of Integrative Biodiversity Research (iDiv), the Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg (MLU) and the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research (UFZ) published in Global Change Biology. The results indicate that climate drivers may have different effects on the survivorship, growth and reproduction of plant species than suggested by earlier studies.

    Multiplexe Antikörpertests: essenzielle Helfer in der Pandemiebewältigung

    Forschungsteam des HZI und NMI entwickelt hochempfindlichen Test auf SARS-CoV-2-Antikörper. Um die Performance des NMI-Antikörpertests (MULTICOV-AB) zu beurteilen, verglichen die Wissenschaftlerinnen und Wissenschaftler um Dr. Nicole Schneiderhan-Marra, Leiterin des Bereichs Pharma und Biotech am NMI, die Testergebnisse mit denen kommerzieller Tests. Im Gegensatz zu den Antikörpertests von Roche, Siemens und Euroimmun konnte der MULTICOV-AB alle negativen Proben korrekt identifizieren. ...

    Scientists Call for a Global Science Panel on Chemicals

    An international group of scientists led by ETH Zurich and with the collaboration of the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research is proposing a global intergovernmental science-policy body for informing policymakers and the public on chemicals and waste. In a paper published in the current issue of the journal Science, the group explains how limited and fragmented science-policy interaction in current international governance of chemicals has contributed to widespread health and environmental harm.

    Ultrafast Electron Dynamics in Space and Time

    Jülich / Marburg / Graz, 18 February 2021 – In textbooks and explanatory videos, they are often depicted as colourful balloons or clouds: electron orbitals provide information on the whereabouts of electrons in molecules, a bit like fuzzy snapshots. In order to understand the exchange of electrons in chemical reactions, it is not only important to know their spatial distribution but also to be able to trace their motion in time. Scientists from Jülich, Marburg, and Graz have now made huge progress in this direction. They combined state-of-the-art methods used in laser and electron spectroscopy and successfully recorded orbital images with an extremely high temporal resolution. Their findings were published today in the peer-reviewed journal Science.

    Blueprint for fault-tolerant qubits

    Jülich, 18 February 2021 – Building a universal quantum computer is a challenging task because of the fragility of quantum bits, or qubits for short. To deal with this problem, various types of error correction have been developed. Conventional methods do this by active correction techniques. In contrast, researchers led by Prof. David DiVincenzo from Forschungszentrum Jülich and RWTH Aachen University, together with partners from the University of Basel and QuTech Delft, have now proposed a design for a circuit with passive error correction. Such a circuit would already be inherently fault protected and could significantly accelerate the construction of a quantum computer with a large number of qubits.

    How the immune system paves the way for SARS-CoV-2

    The immune system actually wants to fight SARS-CoV-2 with antiviral signaling molecules. But a research team from Charité and MDC has now shown how such a signaling molecule can promote the replication of the virus. The results have been published in the journal "EMBO Molecular Medicine".
