Geoscientists can reconstruct the climate of the past by analysing dripstones – and they can also draw up prognoses for the future.
New findings are expected to help protect the hydrogen-producing enzymes from harmful oxygen – which is interesting for biotechnological applications.
Nano columns on the surfaces of implants prevent bacteria from reproducing there. They are grown by a team of material scientists.
Poring over blueprints and searching for manuals might soon become a thing of the past. Augmented Reality could facilitate maintenance and repair work in buildings.
In case of arachnophobia and many other phobias, exposure therapy can be a helpful approach. Its effectiveness apparently depends on whether the patient uses hormonal contraception.
In order to generate realistic images of road signs, researchers pit two algorithms against each other.
The processes underlying artificial intelligence today are in fact stupid. Researchers from Bochum are attempting to make them smarter.
An attack against speech recognition systems with manipulated audio files used to work only via a data interface. Now, all it takes is playing the secret messages via loudspeakers.
Using a novel software made in Bochum, paper-based work instructions can be easily translated into Augmented Reality applications. No prior knowledge necessary.
Like tiny garbage chutes, certain organelles clean cells of superfluous or defective material. Researchers are currently studying the mechanisms underlying this process.
Oxygen threatens sustainable catalysts that use hydrogen to produce electricity in fuel cells. Researchers from Bochum and Marseille have developed a way to combat this.
Noble-metal-free nanoparticles could serve as catalysts for the production of hydrogen from water. Because they are so small, their properties are difficult to determine.
The early career researcher wants to understand what causes glaucoma and how its treatment can be improved.
Encryption is supposed to protect confidential documents such as medical records or industrial correspondence. Attackers can, however, leak the content of encrypted documents.
Enzymes use cascade reactions to produce complex molecules from comparatively simple raw materials. Researchers have now copied this principle.
An enzyme is the key to the colour range of certain algae and, consequently, to their ability to photosynthesise.
Farmers and weather services could use these digital solutions to deal with climate change.
In combination with other methods, Crispr technology might one day render animal testing obsolete, according to the authors of a review article in “Trends in Cell Biology”.
Medical students practice examination conversations in virtual space.
An international team of researchers has found unusual genetic features in fungi of the order Trichosporonales.
