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.
06.01.2020 · Bernhard-Nocht-Institut für Tropenmedizin
Researchers have identified the mechanism responsible for resistance to artemisinin, currently the most important malaria drug.
06.01.2020 · Museum für Naturkunde
The world´s first 3D scanner for insects enables researchers to digitally image and preserve beetles and flies that are hundreds of years old.
Planetary Boundaries under pressure
06.01.2020 · Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research
Nine systems - including climate change - regulate the state of our planet. Interactions between them can amplify human impacts on the Earth system even more.
Climate change threatens yeasts
20.12.2019 · Leibniz Institute DSMZ - German Collection of Microorganisms and Cell Cultures
Researchers isolated a new yeast from tree sap. The microorganisms threatened by climate change could be of great biotechnological importance.
Interview: Life on Mars
09.12.2019 · Leibniz Insitute of Freshwater Ecology and Inland Fisheries
Although the surface of Mars is extremely dry, living organisms such as microorganisms may exist in certain types of rock, especially salt rock.
Health care in baboons
05.12.2019 · German Primate Center - Leibniz Institute for Primate Research
Female baboons avoid mating if either the male or the female themselves showed visible signs of sexually transmitted diseases - but the males did not.
Creating real knowledge
04.12.2019 · Leibniz Institute of Freshwater Ecology and Inland Fisheries
The volume of information continues to grow rapidly, but our real knowledge is not. A new database aims to shed light on "knowledge in the dark".
Electricity without coal
22.11.2019 · Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research
Of all possible ways to decarbonise the electricity supply, renewable energies offer the greatest health benefits to people and environment.
22.11.2019 · Leibniz Institute for Astrophysics Potsdam
For the first time, astronomers have discovered three black holes at the core of one galaxy - a new hint for understanding the evolution of galaxies over time.
