How do single cells communicate in a tissue? How can these interactions be modeled, while retaining information of spatial context? Researchers around Fabian Theis from Helmholtz Munich Computational Health Center and Technical University of Munich (TUM) have generated a new method to represent ...
Essential function of m6A modifications in T cells revealed.
The chemical modification of nucleic acids, known as methylation, exists not only on DNA but also on RNA. So far, it is still unclear whether this methylation is important for certain cell types and what effects it has on the interaction of cells in the body. The most abundant modification on ...
Why oats are healthier and cause fewer allergies and intolerances than other cereals
Researchers have succeeded in sequencing and characterizing the entire genome of oat. Compared to other cereals and humans, the oat genome architecture is very complex. Scientists from Helmholtz Munich, Lund University and the ScanOats network finally elucidated at the genetic level why oats are ...
Less speed, improved cellular reprogramming
Replacing sick or damaged cells with healthy cells: this is a major goal of regenerative medicine. One of the most promising approaches is cellular reprogramming, whereby one cell type in our body converts to another cell type. Research carried out at Helmholtz Munich and ...
According to the study, this is possible in three constellations
According to a new study led by Ulrike Protzer, a breakthrough infection after two vaccinations achieves the same protective effect as an additional booster vaccination. According to the study by Helmholtz Munich, LMU and TUM, the decisive factor for immunity is that the immune system has had ...
Switchable proteins for biomedical imaging
Biomedical imaging is the window through which we can look into organisms. It allows us to see cells, their behavior and localization that would otherwise be hidden. Tracking very few cells over time without damaging them is a key challenge in health research. For this purpose, Helmholtz Munich ...
Largest open-source database for bone marrow cell images developed
How can we better diagnose blood diseases? A research group led by Helmholtz Munich aims to answer this question with artificial intelligence (AI). Their goal is to facilitate the time-consuming analysis of bone marrow cells under the microscope. The researchers developed the largest open-source ...
Researchers developed a novel artificial intelligence algorithm for clinical applications called “scArches”. It efficiently compares patients’ cells with a reference atlas of cells of healthy individuals. This enables physicians to pinpoint cells in disease and prioritize them for personalized ...
A new organoid-on-chip platform robustly mimics the key features of human pancreas development. This is a milestone on the way to being able to diagnose pancreatic cancer at an early stage in the future. The study was conducted by an interdisciplinary team of researchers from Helmholtz Zentrum ...
Which features distinguish “winner” from “loser” cells
Cellular competition is a crucial quality control process that ensures that the development of an organism relies on healthy cells. Researchers revealed the secrets underlying cell competition and what features can pre-determine whether a cell will survive or not. Defects in energy production are ...
q&more – the networking platform for quality excellence in lab and process
The q&more concept is to increase the visibility of recent research and innovative solutions, and support the exchange of knowledge.
