20.05.2016 // The Neanderthal amongst plants
In the “1001 Genome Project”, genome sequences of over 1000  Arabidopsis-specimen have been analyzed. Jörg Abendroth/ Max Planck Institute for Developmental Biology

International research consortium publishes data on the genomic diversity from over 1000 plants


20.05.2016 // Important step in gene expression revealed
Structure of the decapping complex, determined by X-ray crystallography. Stabilized by Dcp1 and Edc1 the catalytic subunit of Dcp2 undergoes a 120° rotation. The interaction of the three proteins causes the enzyme to adopt an active state that allows an efficient decapping of the mRNA. Eugene Valkov/ Max-Planck-Institute for Developmental Biology

Max-Planck researchers from Tübingen shed light on how the cell regulates the destruction of its internal messages


09.05.2016 // Open Science to track virus outbreaks
Reconstructed evolutionary tree of 1654 Ebola virus genomes with a visualization of the geographic spread of the infection. R.Neher/T.Bedford

Scientists develop software that enables public health officials to analyze and predict outbreaks of virus infections


25.04.2016 // Software helps decrypt embryonic development
Model of a classical Turing network compared to the extended Turing networks analyzed with the software RDNets. Background: a self-organizing labyrinthine Turing pattern. Credit: Luciano Marcon/ Friedrich Miescher Laboratory Tübingen

Scientists from Tübingen develop new mathematical approaches and software to model the networks that control embryonic development

Christiane Nüsslein-Volhard from the Max Planck Institute for Developmental Biology in Tübingen, Germany, receives prestigious award


31.03.2016 // Neue Wege in der zellulären Signalverarbeitung entdeckt
Schematische Darstellung des Hybridproteins aus dem Experiment: An der Zelloberfläche (oben) kann der Cholera-Auto-Inducer-1 (CAI-1) andocken; die Signale werden in das Zellinnere (unten) weitergeleitet, wo zyklisches Adeno-sinmonophosphat (cAMP) freigesetzt wird.

Tübinger Forscher erkennen Sender- und Empfängereigenschaften eines altbekannten Membranproteins


14.12.2015 // Mating without males decreases lifespan
Mating pair of Pristionchus roundworms. Colored Scanning Electron Microscopy image. Jürgen Berger/ Max Planck Institute for Developmental Biology

Roundworm species reproducing self-fertilization instead of mating with males have shorter lifespans
