Photo: Tracking result for virus particles [26/03/2014] In order to track the movements of biological particles in a cell, scientists at Heidelberg University and the German Cancer Research Center have developed a powerful analysis method for live cell microscopy images. This so-called probabilistic particle tracking method is automatic, computer-based and can be used for time-resolved two- and three-dimensional microscopy image data.

Photo: Structure of the Dnmt3a DNA methyl transferase [25/03/2014] Tumour cells shut down certain genes in the course of the progressing degeneration or mutate these, a process that considerably accelerates the growth of the tumour. An important role is played by DNA methyl transferase (Dnmts). A research group at the Chair for Biochemistry at the University of Stuttgart is investigating the influence of mutations in Dnmt3a, that are observed in many leukaemias.New Project: Genetic Modification of Cancer Cells - Read more

Alzheimer’s: How a Small Worm May Help the Fight

Photo: Blue Roundworm [19/03/2014] Scientists at the Max Planck Institute (MPI) for Biology of Ageing in Cologne have found that a naturally occurring molecule has the ability to enhance defense mechanisms against neurodegenerative diseases. Feeding this particular metabolite to the small roundworm C. elegans helps clear toxic protein aggregates in the body and extends life span.

Photo: Droplets [28/02/2014] In the future, an entire chemistry lab could be accommodated in a tiny little droplet. While simple reactions already work in these simplest models of an artificial cell now a group of scientists of the Cluster of Excellence Nanosystems Initiative Munich (NIM) have established and investigated for the first time a complex biochemical system.
