Highly Organised Process: How Protein Complexes Form in the Cell
Highly Organised Process: How Protein Complexes Form in the Cell
The formation of protein complexes is a highly organised process that does not begin with the "finished" proteins. Studies conducted by researchers at the Center for Molecular Biology of Heidelberg University (ZMBH) and the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ) demonstrate that they already form in a coordinated way when the protein subunits are synthesised.

Mission Cassini: Nano Dust Rain from Saturn’s Rings
Findings Published in "Science" No 260/2018 from Oct 05, 2018 Nanometer-sized particles of dust are whirling in the gap between the planet Saturn and its rings, as shown by experiments following the grand finale of the Cassini spacecraft, which burned out in 2017. The particles consist of water ice and silicates, and according to the latest measurements, they come from Saturn's rings.

What kind of sex do German men have at 45?
12,354 men at the age of 45 spoke about sex for a study by the Technical University of Munich (TUM). The study makes some discrepancies statistically tangible for the first time: for example, about ten percent of gay men have had sex with a woman in the last three months. About 6 percent were "hidden homosexuals", who saw themselves as homosexual, but had sex only with women and were often married.

Pioneering biologists create a new crop through genome editing: From wild plant to crop: CRISPR-Cas9 revolutionizes breeding / New tomato contains more valuable antioxidants
Pioneering biologists create a new crop through genome editing: From wild plant to crop: CRISPR-Cas9 revolutionizes breeding / New tomato contains more valuable antioxidants
Crops such as wheat and maize have undergone a breeding process lasting thousands of years, in the course of which mankind has gradually modified the properties of the wild plants in order to adapt them to his needs. One motive was, and still is, higher yields. One “side effect? of this breeding has been a reduction in genetic diversity and the loss of useful properties.

TUM successfully presents four research Clusters of Excellence
The Technical University of Munich (TUM) has got off to another successful start in the extremely competitive Excellence Initiative organized by Germany's government and federal states. Over the next seven years, four research clusters run by TUM and its cooperation partners will each receive up to 70 million euros in funding.

The gods of small things
On the outside, the cluster made of 55 copper and aluminum atoms looks like a crystal, but chemically it has the properties of an atom. The heterometallic superatom which chemists of the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have created provides the prerequisites for developing new, more cost-effective catalysts.

The fastest supercomputer in Germany
Experiments and simulations frequently produce enormous volumes of data. The new high-performance computer SuperMUC-NG at the Leibniz Supercomputing Center (LRZ) in Garching is currently the fastest computer in Germany, assisting scientists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) in handling enormous quantities of data.

New observations to understand the phase transition in quantum chromodynamics
New observations to understand the phase transition in quantum chromodynamics
New findings published in ''Nature' on the formation of matter / Experiments provide information on the beginnings of the universe The building blocks of matter in our universe were formed in the first 10 microseconds of its existence, according to the currently accepted scientific picture. After the Big Bang about 13.7 billion years ago, matter consisted mainly of quarks and gluons, two types of elementary particles whose interactions are governed by quantum chromodynamics (QCD), the theory of strong interaction.

What even Einstein didn’t know
It provides the basis for solar energy and global communications: the photoelectric effect. Albert Einstein described it over a century ago. For the first time, scientists have now measured the absolute duration of the light absorption and of the resulting photoelectron which is released from a solid body.

Muscle relaxants increase risk of respiratory complications
Muscle relaxants are a necessary part of anesthesia during certain major operations. Studies have, however, hinted at respiratory risks connected with these drugs. POPULAR, a major prospective observational European study supported by the European Society of Anaesthesiology (ESA) and led by the Technical University of Munich (TUM), has confirmed the association between use of muscle relaxants and respiratory complications and assessed the chances of the current avoidance strategies.

Precursors of genes constantly emerge
Precursors of genes constantly emerge
As most of us have learned at school, organisms evolve gradually due to the accumulation of many small genetic changes known as point mutations. Over millions of years, these mutations occur in the duplicated copies of established genes, occasionally contributing useful properties of their own. For decades it was considered inconceivable that completely novel genes could emerge spontaneously.

What catches our eye
Our unconscious gaze is controlled by an automatic selection process computed by a neural network in the brain. Details of this computation have now been studied by an international team collaborating with the Technical University of Munich (TUM). This finding could soon become relevant for robotic implementations.

Pioneering work: mathematical fundamentals of light refraction: Münster mathematician's research into wave propagation in complex materials
Pioneering work: mathematical fundamentals of light refraction: Münster mathematician’s research into wave propagation in complex materials
Something everyone learns in Physics lessons at school is that light is refracted and reflected at the interface between air and water. The reason for this is the different refractive indices which the two mediums have - an optical property which is characteristic of each material. There are also materials with so-called negative refraction indices.

On the road to a clean combustion engine
On the road to a clean combustion engine
Emissions-free combustion engine cars - synthetic fuels like oxymethylene ether are bringing the idea into the realm of the conceivable. Researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have tested how this kind of fuel behaves in engines and have developed an optimized combustion process. They generate carbon dioxide, particulate matter and nitrogen oxides: combustion engines are in the cross-hairs of public opinion and many inner cities have already imposed driving bans for certain kinds of diesel-powered vehicles.

Advantage of coating lost after first year
In bypass surgery, alternative routes are built around blocked heart vessels. Yet new occlusions can occur in bypasses. To re-open them, doctors use stents, sometimes coated with drugs to prevent constriction. Researchers from the German Heart Centre Munich at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) and the German Centre for Cardiovascular Research (DZHK) have investigated the long-term effect of different stent types in bypasses.
