    Tracking RNA through space and time

    A research team at the MDC has succeeded in tracking genes through space and time within a one-cell zebrafish embryo – even before cell division occurs. They have now described a method in the journal “Nature Communications” that may one day allow scientists to measure cell response to drugs, for example, in organoids.

    Collaborative Research Center on the Wnt signaling pathway enters second funding period

    The Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) is funding the Collaborative Research Center "Mechanisms and Functions of the Wnt Signaling Pathway" (SFB 1324), founded in 2017, for another four years with approximately 11.5 million euros. The SFB researchers are investigating the network of Wnt signaling proteins, the misregulation of which can result in serious diseases such as cancer.

    Play it safe: A microscopic perspective towards durable solid state batteries

    Jülich, 7 June 2021 – The ions in a solid state battery need to travel through multiple material interfaces which comes along with several challenges. A team of the Fritz-Haber-Institute, the TU Munich and the Forschungszentrum Jülich now shows that nano-scale coating at these interfaces may in fact stabilize the battery.

    The Cut and Restore Protein Trick: Self-Excising Designer Proteins Report Isoform Expression

    Our proteome is much bigger than our genome because one gene produces several variants of proteins called protein isoforms, whose disbalance is implicated in many diseases. A new bioengineered reporter system developed at Helmholtz Zentrum München and the Technical University of Munich now allows for the first time to follow protein isoform expression over time in live cells. The method helps to decipher the underlying regulatory mechanisms and enables screening for potential molecular...

    Front-row view reveals exceptional cosmic explosion

    Scientists have gained the best view yet of the brightest explosions in the universe: A specialised observatory in Namibia has recorded the most energetic radiation and longest gamma-ray afterglow of a so-called gamma-ray burst (GRB) to date. The observations challenge the established idea of how gamma-rays are produced in these colossal stellar explosions, as the international team reports in the journal Science.

    Are wind farms slowing each other down?

    If offshore wind turbines are too numerous, they will produce less power. This should be considered when planning the wind farms

    Renske van der Veen heads new department "Atomic Dynamics in Light-Energy Conversion"

    From June 2021, Dr. Renske van der Veen is setting up a new research group at HZB. The chemist is an expert in time-resolved X-ray spectroscopy and electron microscopy and studies catalytic processes that enable the conversion of solar energy into chemical energy.

    Ring closure for large FAIR accelerator: structural work is completed

    It is a central part of the future accelerator center FAIR, currently being built in international collaboration at the GSI Helmholtzzentrum in Darmstadt, and at the same time the heart of one of the largest construction projects for research worldwide: the large underground FAIR ring accelerator SIS100 on the northern FAIR construction site with a circumference of 1,100 meters. On the same place where the groundbreaking ceremony was held a few years ago, representing the start of the building and civil en

    How Quantum Systems Keep a Memory of Their Environment

    Jülich, 1 June 2021 – Many quantum devices – electrical, optical or otherwise – respond in a delayed manner to a control pulse. This results in damping effects that occur with a time delay - the systems still show traces of past behaviour. Researchers at RWTH Aachen University and Forschungszentrum Jülich have now shown how this "memory" can be modelled more easily. The results are relevant, among other things, for applications in quantum technology, the development of which is still a challenge due to difficulties in modelling.
