How Cells Assemble Their Skeleton

Researchers study the formation of microtubules

20-Jan-2020

Microtubules, filamentous structures within the cell, are required for many important processes, including cell division and intracellular transport. A research team led by scientists from Heidelberg University recently discovered how the spiral-shaped, modular microtubules are formed and how ...

Mapping the Energetic Landscape of Solar Cells

New spectroscopic method

19-Aug-2019

A new spectroscopic method now makes it possible to measure and visualise the energetic landscape inside solar cells based on organic materials. It was developed by a research team led by Prof. Dr Yana Vaynzof, a physicist at Heidelberg University. This novel visualisation technique enables ...

New Measurement Device: Carbon Dioxide As Geothermometer

Researchers quantify rare CO2 variants using laser spectroscopy

22-May-2019

For the first time it is possible to measure, simultaneously and with extreme precision, four rare molecular variants of carbon dioxide (CO2) using a novel laser instrument. It is thus able to measure the temperature during the formation of CO2-binding carbonates and carbonaceous fossils ...

Bifacial Stem Cells Produce Wood and Bast

One of the most important growth processes on Earth studied

24-Jan-2019

So-called bifacial stem cells are responsible for one of the most critical growth processes on Earth – the formation of wood. By alternately developing into wood and bast cells, these stem cells are thus starting points for forming wood as well as generating plant bast fibres. A team of ...

Precise, Highly Efficient Gene Repair

Researchers develop new CRISPR/Cas process using Japanese ricefish

31-Aug-2018

The molecular tool CRISPR/Cas allows introducing DNA double strand breaks into any gene of interest consequently resulting in stochastic mutations at the site of the target gene. However, precise gene repair through the application of a rescue construct suffers from limited efficiency. ...

Motor And Energy Store In One

Physicists reinvent the wheel with the help of a polymer fibre

07-May-2018

Physicists and material scientists have succeeded in constructing a motor and an energy storage device from one single component. They used an elastic polymer fibre closed into a ring that was made to rotate on application of an external energy supply. The researchers from the universities in ...

Predicting Cell Behaviour with a Mathematical Model

Heidelberg physicists develop new software for the life sciences

20-Apr-2016

Scientists from Heidelberg University have developed a novel mathematical model to explore cellular processes: with the corresponding software, they now are able to simulate how large collections of cells behave on given geometrical structures. The software supports the evaluation of ...

Mechanism for radiation damage identified

Scientists examine electronic decay processes with the aid of quantum chemistry

11-Mar-2016

What exactly are the processes when x-ray photons damage biomolecules with a metal centre? This question has been investigated by a team of scientists at the Institute for Physical Chemistry of Heidelberg University. Using the methods of quantum chemistry, they examined the underlying electronic ...

Help in the Search for the Needle in the Haystack

Physicists render usable method for detecting extremely rare inert gas isotopes for water dating

17-Oct-2014

In the earth and environmental sciences, radioactive isotopes, atom variants that decay over time, play a major role in age determination. A radioactive isotope of the inert gas argon (39Ar), for example, is used to determine the age of water or ice. Such isotopes are extremely rare, however – ...

Automatic tracking of biological particles in cell microscopy images

Heidelberg scientists develop powerful automatic method for image analysis

26-Mar-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, ...
