Experts from different fields together reveal the first structure of the peroxisomal docking complex.
Analyzing nanoparticles individually is a challenge precisely because they are so small. A new technique using electron microscopy and a robotic arm could make the process much easier.
An international research team has investigated water molecules in a tiny cage – and discovered previously unknown properties.
Green bell peppers are unripe and do not fully ripen. Bochum biologists want to know why.
When we see a banana, at first we only notice yellow and smoothness. Only later do we recognise the crescent shape and the fact that it is a banana.
Infrared analyses of neuronal proteins provide information on molecular changes in patients with ALS. This helps to verify their diagnosis.
Researchers have found a new hypothesis for explaining Takotsubo cardiomyopathy, also known as broken heart syndrome.
We generally take for granted that the particles inside atomic nuclei stick together. However, the interactions between the nuclear constituents are, for the most part, not fully understood.
Luminous carbon nanotubes detect pathogens – and are quick and easy to use.
Nowadays, it is easy to determine an average pH for larger quantities of liquid. It is a challenge, however, to define a local pH value.
An international research team is developing solutions to help companies and organizations develop the necessary skills and strategies for digitization.
Combined efforts of experiment and simulation pave the way to new applications.
Researchers from Basel and Bochum have realised a key element of quantum communication at the edge of the visible spectrum. So far, that was only possible in the near-infrared range.
Glaucoma is a leading cause of blindness worldwide. An increased intraocular pressure is the main risk factor. But there are other triggers.
In the 1950s and 1960s, women went to extreme lengths to fight against the desegregation of schools and other public spaces. An as yet neglected chapter in the history of racism.
Their jellyfish-like appearance gives this special class of galaxies their name. Much about what happens in their gas tail hasn’t yet been fully understood. A German-Italian team has gained new insights.
The RUB research team intends to use proteomics to accelerate the development of new drugs.
In Germany, the limit values for nitrate pollution have repeatedly been exceeded, partly due to fertilisers in the soil. Biopolymers could help.
From microorganisms to humans – all living organisms with a cell nucleus possess the Stripak signal-protein complex. A research team has gained new insights into its functions.
A research team genetically eliminated an unnecessary energy consumer. This means that less light is sufficient for catalysis.
