Researchers discover rare phages that attack dormant bacteria

In nature, most bacteria live on the bare minimum. If they experience nutrient deficiency or stress, they shut down their metabolism in a controlled manner and go into a resting state. In this stand-by mode, certain metabolic ...

Tracking molecules at turbo speed

Microbiologists and biophysicists from the University of Bonn have developed a method that makes the high-throughput process for observing molecules five times faster, enabling insights to be gained into hitherto unknown ...

Researchers discover protein complex that controls DNA repair

The repair of damage to genetic material (DNA) in the human body is carried out by highly efficient mechanisms that have not yet been fully researched. A scientific team led by Christian Seiser from MedUni Vienna's Center ...
