Are plants more intelligent than we assumed?

Berberitze_Katrin_Meyer_90

Plants are also able to make complex decisions. At least this is what scientists from the Helmholtz Center for Environmental Research (UFZ) and the University of Göttingen have concluded from their investigations on Barberry (Berberis vulgaris), which is able to abort its own seeds to prevent parasite infestation. more...



Quality control in gene expression

nature_krebber_90

Scientists at Göttingen University have identified a cellular mechanism that is responsible for quality control during gene expression. The proteins Gbp2 and Hrb1 appear to play a critical role during the translation of genetic information (DNA) into messenger RNAs. Errors occurring in this process are considered responsible for the development of cancer and neurodegenerative diseases, among others. more...



Once a criminal, always a criminal?

Rueckfallstudie_Jehle_90

Scientists at the University of Göttingen and the Max Planck Institute for Foreign and International Criminal Law in Freiburg were commissioned by the German Federal Ministry of Justice to search the entries in the Federal Central Criminal Register in Germany to find out whether ex-convicts stayed "legal" after undergoing criminal punishment or their release from prison, in other words if they relapsed back into criminals. more...



Observing the motion of living cells

Scientists from the University of Göttingen have developed a new technique which allows for observing the motion of living cells with a resolution that hadn't been possible before. The new optical method enables scientists to trace the motion of individual cells with the spatial resolution of a millionth part of a millimeter in real time. more...
