Determining natural products more accurately
21.01.2020 · Leibniz-Forschungsinstitut für Molekulare Pharmakologie
Many drugs are derived from natural products. However, identification of potential drug candidates is a challenge. A new method now simplifies the analysis.
Quality standards for data in nano safety
21.01.2020 · FIZ Karlsruhe - Leibniz Institute for Information Infrastructure
Nanoparticles can be found today in almost all areas of work and life. To make their application safer, a project is developing quality standards for research data.
X-ray eye in space celebrates 20 years
20.01.2020 · Leibniz Institute for Astrophysics Potsdam
20 years ago, the XMM-Newton space telescope started observing the X-ray sky. Scientists are now publishing new catalogues containing all X-ray detections since launch.
New tool simplifies genome analysis
20.01.2020 · IPK/IPB
The correct assembly of plant genomes can be hampered by a large amount of repetitive sequences. A new bioinformatics tool now facilitates the analysis.
Winners and losers of climate change
16.01.2020 · Senckenberg Gesellschaft für Naturforschung
Presenting a new research approach, scientists hope to make faster and more reliable predictions regarding animal and plant species’ responses to global climate change.
What keeps couples together
16.01.2020 · German Primate Center - Leibniz Institute for Primate Research
Red titi monkeys are among the few mammals that live in pairs - with a clear distribution of roles. She pampers him, he takes care of the offspring and drives away attackers.
Wisdom of the crowd
15.01.2020 · Leibniz Institute of Freshwater Ecology and Inland Fisheries
Collectively, environmental stakeholders are just as smart as scientific experts, as a study shows. Researchers advocate more systematic use of swarm intelligence.
Loss of microRNA leads to fibrosis
15.01.2020 · Leibniz Institute on Aging - Fritz Lipmann Institute
Researchers have identified microRNA molecules that are responsible for the development of fibrosis and thus promote the progression of cancer.
In search of balance
09.01.2020 · Leibniz Centre for Agricultural Landscape Research
In order to better harmonize agriculture and biodiversity, a new project is developing concepts for the protection of species in European agricultural landscapes.
Reforms against decay
08.01.2020 · Institute for the World Economy
25 years after its foundation, the World Trade Organization (WTO) is in a crisis. To prevent a collapse, and thus a loss of prosperity worldwide, it needs reform.
Land-use impacts biodiversity in the long-term
07.01.2020 · Senckenberg Gesellschaft für Naturforschung
Changes from grassland to cropland that happened as long as 20 years ago impact the biodiversity of species inhabiting agroecosystems in the long-term, i.e. today.
Together you're less alone
07.01.2020 · German Primate Center - Leibniz Institute for Primate Research
Pair living plays a key role in the evolution of primates' social systems: as a stepping stone from solitary life to complex societies.
Urban skyglow suppresses melatonin
07.01.2020 · Leibniz Institute for Freshwater Ecology and Inland Fisheries
Even the low light intensities of urban skyglow are sufficient to suppress the nocturnal melatonin production and thus to disrupt our day-night rhythm.
Germans desire simplified tax system
07.01.2020 · ZEW - Leibniz Centre for European Economic Research
More than 90 per cent of Germans consider the tax system to be in need of simplification. However, there is no social consensus on what reform should look like.
