    Anders als gedacht, entlässt das Ribosom Proteine nach der Synthese nicht in das Zytosol (l). Stattdessen hält es sie so lange fest, bis passenden Gegenstücke und Helfer angeliefert werden (r.). (Grafik: Ashwin Chari)

    The formation of macromolecular machines within cells is often a complicated endavour. Biochemists of the University of Würzburg and Göttingen have now unravelled new details of these processes. They show that cells invest a great deal of effort into preventing production errors.

    Interfaces between different materials and their properties are of key importance for modern technology. Together with an international team, physicists of Würzburg University have developed a new method, which allows them to have an extremely precise glance at these interfaces and to model their properties.
