Agents between good and evil

Theory of narrow host range of phages challenged: consequences for phage therapy?

21-Jan-2022

Viruses that infect bacteria could one day replace antibiotics because they precisely attack only specific pathogens. Researchers at ETH Zurich are now showing that this is not always the case. This new finding is important because bacterial viruses can transfer antibiotic resistance ...

AI offers a faster way to predict antibiotic resistance

Huge new data set combines mass spectrometry data with information on antibiotic resistance

14-Jan-2022

A study under co-leadership of the ETH Zurich has shown that computer algorithms can determine antimicrobial resistance of bacteria faster than previous methods. This could help treat serious infections more efficiently in the future. Antibiotic-resistant bacteria are on the rise all over the ...

Harnessing the organisation of the cell surface

07-Dec-2021

Scientists at ETH Zurich have developed a new method to determine how proteins are organised on the surface of cells. Insights gained with the technology could lead to the development of novel drugs to fight cancer. Biological cells have multiple functions, and they need to communicate with each ...

3D printing approaches atomic dimensions

A new electrochemical technique makes the production of complex metallic objects at the nanoscale possible

22-Nov-2021

In recent years 3D printing, also known as additive manufacturing, has established itself as a promising new manufacturing process for a wide variety of components. Dr Dmitry Momotenko, a chemist at the University of Oldenburg, has now succeeded in fabricating ultrasmall metal objects using a new ...

High-precision frequency measurement

03-Aug-2021

Many scientific experiments require highly precise time measurements with the help of a clearly defined frequency. Now, a new approach allows the direct comparison of frequency measurements in the lab with the atomic clock in Bern, Switzerland. For many scientific experiments, today’s researchers ...

Harnessing AI to discover new drugs inspired by nature

"Virtual chemist" finds molecules that have the same effect as a natural substance but are simpler and low-​cost to produce

08-Jul-2021

Artificial intelligence (AI) is able to recognise the biological activity of natural products in a targeted manner, as researchers at ETH Zurich have demonstrated. Moreover, AI helps to find molecules that have the same effect as a natural substance but are easier to manufacture. This opens up ...

The Achilles heel of the Coronavirus

Frameshifting as possible target for antiviral drug development

19-May-2021

SARS-​CoV-2 is critically dependent on a special mechanism for the production of its proteins. A collaborative team led by a research group at ETH Zurich obtained molecular insights into this process and demonstrated that it can be inhibited by chemical compounds, thereby significantly reducing ...
