In the fruit fly Drosophila, a central circadian clock in the brain controls important parameters such as daily activity or food intake. Peripheral clocks receive timing signals via further pathways, and act as clocks for various metabolic processes. If the clocks chronically get out of sync, this can trigger diseases.

In the fruit fly Drosophila, circadian clocks also control fat metabolism. This is shown in a new study by a research team at the University of Würzburg. The findings could also be relevant for humans.

Little is known about how immune cells perceive their mechanical environment. She wants to change that: Anna Lippert is the new junior professor for translational medicine at JMU.

Anna Lippert is the new junior professor for systems immunology at the University of Würzburg. With her research, she wants to create the basis for a more targeted treatment of cancer and immune diseases.

The Main Building of the University of Würzburg.

The internationally renowned Shanghai Ranking rates the University of Würzburg among the 300 best research-intensive universities in the world and among the top 19 in Germany.

Information can be stored in the form of DNA on chips made of semiconducting nanocellulose. Light-controlled proteins read the information.

In the form of DNA, nature shows how data can be stored in a space-saving and long-term manner. Würzburg's chair of bioinformatics is developing DNA chips for computer technology.

Climate change poses a particular challenge for agricultural and forestry businesses such as viticulture. BigData@Geo 2.0 wants to help companies master this challenge in the best possible way. (Image: / grafxart8888)

More cooperating businesses, higher funding, a new partner within the university: BigData@Geo is going into the second round and wants to use climate data to create concrete recommendations for action for businesses with a connection to nature.

Johnsongrass is considered a so-called problem weed because of its herbicide resistance.

Together with the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Biology, Würzburg biology professor Chaitanya S. Gokhale has developed a mathematical model on population dynamics and evolution of herbicide resistance in perennial weeds.

Immunology, infection biology and chronic inflammation: This is the field of research of Carlos Talavera-López.

Carlos Talavera-López has recently been appointed junior professor of systems immunology at the University of Würzburg. His special focus is on the processes inside the cell. For this, he relies on deep learning methods.
