For his outstanding achievements in the field of inorganic chemistry, the Gesellschaft Deutscher Chemiker (GDCh) honors Professor Wolfgang Schnick with the Liebig commemorative coin.
Researchers establish a benchmark for the accurate determination of internal dimensions within individual molecules.
The DNA in the cell nucleus is highly condensed, and genes must be rendered accessible before they can be activated. An LMU team has now described the action of a protein complex that serves as a yardstick to measure lengths of exposed DNA.
LMU chemists have designed and synthesized a helical molecule that specifically recognizes and binds to a disaccharide consisting of two five-carbon sugar units.
How do muscle cells prepare for the particular metabolic challenges of the day? A new study has uncovered a metabolic network which is, contrary to expectations, not controlled by the brain but rather by the circadian clock of muscle cells.
In its latest funding round, the European Research Council (ERC) has awarded Starting Grants to ten junior researchers.
