Once a criminal, always a criminal?

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...

Quality control in gene expression

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. The results of the study have been published in the journal Nature Communications. more...
