Research team with the University of Göttingen finds effect of odour on helpfulness in rats. Despite their reputation, rats are surprisingly sociable and actually regularly help each other out with tasks. Researchers at the Universities of Göttingen, Bern and St Andrews have now shown that a rat just has to smell the scent of another rat that is engaged in helpful behaviour to increase his or her own helpfulness.
Astronomy - Nov 23

Galaxies like the Milky Way formed by the merging of smaller progenitor galaxies. An international team of astrophysicists led by Dr Diederik Kruijssen from the Centre for Astronomy at Heidelberg University has succeeded in reconstructing the merger history of our home galaxy, creating a complete family tree. To achieve this, the researchers analysed the properties of globular clusters orbiting the Milky Way with artificial intelligence. Their investigations revealed a previously unknown galaxy collision that must have permanently altered the appearance of the Milky Way.

Invasion to the inside
In order to multiply, influenza viruses are dependent on cells of a human or animal body. They board those cells, for example all along the lung surface, and their genetic material migrates into the nucleus, where it is replicated. As a result, new viruses come to life. A team led by scientists from the Cells-in-Motion Cluster of Excellence (CiM), University of Münster, has now, for the first time, succeeded in visualizing structures of the viral genome inside of human cells by light microscopy.

Schleimige Computer: Künstlerisch-wissenschaftliche Studie zu Schleimpilz-Forschung
Der Computer der Zukunft könnte um einiges schleimiger sein als die Silizium-Geräte, mit denen wir es heutzutage zu tun haben. Genau damit befasst sich die Studie, die Theresa Schubert (Bauhaus-Universität Weimar, Professur Gestaltung medialer Umgebungen) und Andrew Adamatzky (University of the West of England, Bristol) in dem renommierten Journal 'Materials Today' veröffentlicht haben.
