    What genes enable plants to catch animals and digest them? Three genes have now been described for the Venus flytrap. They are responsible for the fact that the plant can use the vital potassium from its prey highly efficiently.

    Bakterien nutzen geöffnete Poren in den Blättern als Schlupflöcher, um ins Blattinnere zu gelangen (A). Nimmt die Pflanze das bakterielle Flagellin wahr, werden über das Enzym OST1 die Ionenkanäle SLAC1 und SLAH3 aktiviert (rechts). Die Poren schlie

    When plants notice harmful bacteria, they respond very quickly: They close the pores on their leaves which serve as loophole for the pathogens. A Würzburg research team has analysed this process.

    Wie ein Satellit, der unglaublich scharfe Fotos von der Erdoberfläche liefert: So ähnlich funktioniert die mikroskopische Technik dSTORM. Würzburger Forscher erzeugen mit ihr sehr detailreiche Bilder von Zellmembranen. (Bild: AK Jürgen Seibel / AK Mar

    In a new Collaborative Research Centre scientists from Würzburg and Jena are examining the function of membrane receptors with the most modern light microscopy. The objective is to gain new findings about how these receptors work and to develop the high-performance light microscopy further.

    Prof. Dr. Holger Braunschweig ist der erste Wissenschaftler an der Universität Würzburg, der ein zweites Mal einen "Advanced Grant" vom Europäischen Forschungsrat ERC bekommt. (Foto: Uni Würzburg)

    Chemist Holger Braunschweig has joined an elite club of European researchers who have been awarded a second "Advanced Grant", the largest research grant offered by the European Research Council (ERC). Braunschweig will receive 2.5 million Euro in order to explore unprecedented new bonding possibilites of the element boron.

    Eine neue Entwicklung Würzburger Physiker kann aus Temperaturunterschieden einen gleichgerichteten Strom produzieren. Damit lassen sich möglicherweise Sensornetzwerke mit Energie versorgen. (Grafik: Fabian Hartmann)

    Computers generate heaps of surplus heat. Components that use this energy sensibly were already foreseen a few years ago. Now, physicists from the University of Würzburg have managed to create such parts in the laboratory.
