Why do physicists blur their images before showing them to biologists?

How can cartoon images aid in understanding bacterial biological processes? How did Hollywood contribute to quantum physics? How do aesthetics, art, and design influence scientific visualization and vice versa? These are just some of the questions that a new book raises. Bjørn Panyella Pedersen, Ebbe Sloth Andersen and Ditte Høyer Engholm from…

Llama-derived nanobodies as a new tool in solving crystal structure

Aarhus University scientists have developed miniature antibodies (nanobodies) that can be labelled on certain amino acids. This provides a direct route for solving new X-ray crystal structures of protein complexes important for gaining mechanistic understanding of cellular processes, which is important in the development of drugs.

Elevated levels of the bad LDL cholesterol increases the risk of premature death from a blood clot in the heart, so there is a great need for medicine which helps the body to remove it from the blood.

Improved solution to increase fertility in high-yielding cows

Through decades, researchers have been able to increase milk production in cows by intense genetic selection. However, this has resulted in a reversal of the fertility of the cows. This has led the researchers to find an optimum solution.

New knowledge about the dynamics of proteins can shape the future in drug development

New research provides mechanistic insight into how protein dynamics control the activity of a group of enzymes called serine proteases. As serine proteases play pivotal roles in blood coagulation, the innate immune system and tissue remodeling, the results may be important for the development of new drugs for the treatment of various diseases.

New insight into a central biological dogma on ion transport

New research results from Aarhus University and New York University show how active transport of potassium can be achieved by a membrane protein complex that has roots in both ion pump and ion channel super-families. The results, which have just been published in Nature, shed new light on what define channels and pumps.

Ernst-Martin Füchtbauer has been elected as member of the Board of Directors of the International Society for Transgenic Technologies. It is not possible to run for this honourable appointment yourself.

[Translate to English:] Bioøkonomien, der baserer sig på biologiske frem for fossile råvarer, er en væsentlig del af den cirkulære økonomi, og her står Aarhus Universitet særligt stærkt gennem forskningsmæssige styrker på Science and Technology. Derfor etableres nu Center for Cirkulær Bioøkonomi, der har det klare mål at sikre synergi og tværfaglige projekter indenfor forskningen på området, samt at styrke samarbejdet med nationale og internationale virksomheder og organisationer inden for den biobaserede økonomi.
En forudsætning for den biobaserede økonomi er, at der udvikles bioraffineringsteknologier og produktionssystemer, som er bæredygtige i både økonomisk og miljømæssig betydning.
Samlet set skal aktiviteterne i det nye center medvirke til, at der etableres nye virksomheder og forretningsområder inden for den biobaserede økonomi, herunder til at producere og markedsføre nyt dansk protein til både husdyr og fødevareproduktion.
Aarhus Universitet råder over unikke faciliteter til dyrkning af biomasse på land og i havet. Mulighederne er mange, og der er eksempelvis allerede stor vækst og eksport inden for bioenergiteknologi og muligheder for at udbygge med teknologi til udnyttelse af f.eks. græs, kløver, alger og muslinger.
