Science-fiction is becoming science-fact as emerging technologies are increasingly influencing our lives. We are experiencing progress like never before and it is already evident that our civilisation will change so much that its rules and technologies will be incomprehensible to the previous generation. The lecture "Exponential Ethics" aims to create awareness for positive and not-so-positive ... Read more about "Exponential Ethics"

Understanding how nucleic acids and proteins interact to regulate key cellular processes requires the ability to observe these interactions directly. The dynamic nature of many nucleic acid-protein interactions makes it challenging to study them with traditional bulk methods. Biochemical, molecular or cellular biology approaches yield ensemble- or population-averaged results, which may conceal key short-lived or ...

SEMINAR IN BIOLOGICAL AND STATISTICAL PHYSICS Abstract: Protein folding research has been dominated by the assumption that thermodynamics determines protein structure and function. And that when the folding process is compromised, the proteostasis machinery of cells - chaperones, deaggregases, the proteasome - work to restore proteins to their soluble, functional form or degrade them to ...

Control of stem cell division modes is important to ensure generation of properly sized tissues during development as well as adult tissue homeostasis and repair. Stem cells undergo repeated cell divisions in which they produce daughter cells that either mature or remain stem cells. Surprisingly, the number and type of produced daughter cells vary between ...
