  • New ways to look at protein-RNA networks
    For their vital tasks, all RNA molecules in our cells require proteins as binding partners. Scientists at the German Cancer Research Center (Deutsches Krebsforschungszentrum, DKFZ) and colleagues f...
  • Artificial synapses made from nanowires
    Scientists from Jülich together with colleagues from Aachen and Turin have produced a memristive element made from nanowires that functions in much the same way as a biological nerve cell. The comp...
  • Replacing crude oil with alternative fuels
    More than four billion tons of crude oil are produced every year. Electricity from wind, solar and hydropower plants cannot entirely supplant fossil sources of energy. At best, renewables could cov...
