A molecular machine at work

A molecular machine at work

05-Aug-2022

The greenhouse gas nitrous oxide (N2O) is produced as a by-product of industrial processes and through the use of fertilizers in agriculture. It is making a steadily growing contribution to climate change and the depletion of the ozone layer. It is so chemically unreactive that it remains in the ...

New discoveries about the origin of the brain’s immune system

Significance for Alzheimer’s, multiple sclerosis and more

03-May-2022

What gets into the brain and what doesn’t is strictly regulated. Researchers at the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Freiburg have now studied phagocytes that coat the blood vessels in the brain and reinforce the blood-brain barrier. As the scientists from the Institute of Neuropathology ...

Lung Tissue from the Lab

Organoids could be used in diagnosis, drug development, and fundamental research

22-Mar-2022

Laboratory studies of lung tissue usually require the removal of large amounts of human or animal tissue. Now scientists from the University of Freiburg’s Faculty of Medicine have succeeded in collaboration with American researchers in generating tiny quantities of lung tissue, so-called ...

Complex pathways influence time delay in ionization of molecules

Study shows how the mechanism of photoionization can be used to gain insights into complex molecular potentials

18-Mar-2022

How can researchers use the mechanism of photoionization to gain insight into complex molecular potential? This question has now been answered by a team led by Prof. Dr. Giuseppe Sansone from the Institute of Physics at the University of Freiburg. The researchers from Freiburg, the Max Planck ...

3D tissue structures on the chip act as organs in miniature

New organ-on-chip system enables precise monitoring of 3D tumour tissue outside the body

23-Feb-2022

A research team around Dr. Andreas Weltin, Dr. Jochen Kieninger and Johannes Dornhof from the Department of Microsystems Engineering (IMTEK) at the University of Freiburg has developed a system that, among other things, makes it possible to study the development of tumour cells outside the human ...

Study analyzes technologies’ climate efficiency in removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere

One process has similar CO2 footprint to e-mobility

02-Nov-2021

Technologies for the removal of carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere (direct air capture, or DAC for short) are already in use, but neither their actual benefits for climate protection nor their other environmental impact have yet to be investigated. A research team led by Kavya Madhu and ...

Crucial step identified in the conversion of biomass to methane

Researchers find the enzymatic link in the formation of methane from fatty acids by cooperating microorganisms

05-Oct-2021

Microbial production of methane from organic material is an essential process in the global carbon cycle and an important source of renewable energy. This natural process is based on a cooperative interaction between different types of microorganisms: the fermenting bacteria and the ...

Bacteria can boost the fitness of their host

01-Oct-2021

Microorganisms can increase their host’s ability to adapt to the environment and reproduce – evolutionary biologists are now studying the underlying molecular mechanisms. A research team headed by Dr. Fabian Staubach and Yun Wang from the Institute of Biology I at the University of Freiburg has ...

Novel strategy for natural product biosynthesis

Researchers discover enzyme prototype for formation of ecologically and pharmaceutically important tropone compounds

06-Jul-2021

Microorganisms produce natural products, for example, as disease-causing virulence factors or as defense substances against predators and competitors. A team led by Dr. Robin Teufel and first author Ying Duan from the Institute of Biology II at the Faculty of Biology of the University of ...

A remote control for gene transfer

Researchers develop technology to introduce genes into single cells in a targeted manner

18-Jun-2021

The ability to insert desirable genes into animal or human cells is the basis of modern life science research and of widespread biomedical applications. The methods used to date for this purpose are mostly non-specific, making it difficult for scientists to control which cell will or will not ...
