Max Planck Campus Tübingen

Scientists at the Max Planck Campus in Tübingen are studying elementary biological processes ranging from the function of individual proteins to the evolution of species diversity, as well as the function of the human brain. In total, about 700 people from over 45 different countries work at the Max Planck Institute for Developmental Biology, the Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics, the Opens external link in current windowMax Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems and the Friedrich Miescher Laboratory. The Max Planck Guesthouse is the social centre of the Campus: it contains a cafeteria, library, lecture hall and accommodation. The Planckton nursery provides full-time daycare for babies and toddlers.


Researchers from Bielefeld University have demonstrated the origin of the mapping between auditory pitch and spatial elevation. Their analysis suggests that the shape of the human ear might have evolved to mirror the acoustic properties of the natural environment. Foto: Parise & Ernst; University of Bielefeld

Researchers uncover why there is a mapping between pitch and elevation.

The three-dimensional structure of the amino acid sequence „ANDREI-N-LVPAS“ inserted between two GCN4 adaptors is a three-helical coiled coil. Peculiarities of this structure are a bound bromide ion in the middle of the bundle and the accommodation of the amino acid proline (P), which is rarely found in natural coiled coils.
