The DFG Research Training Group on regulatory networks of ribonucleic acids (RNAs) at Justus Liebig University Giessen has been extended for another four and a half years. A new addition to the cooperation is Dr. Katharina Höfer`s Max Planck Research Group.
A spot of molecular glue and a timely twist - these two tricks help a bacterial enzyme convert carbon dioxide into carbon compounds 20 times faster than plant enzymes do during photosynthesis.
The interactions of bacteria with other organisms involve a plethora of largely unknown natural substances. A systematic analysis of this "dark matter" led by Dr. Yi-Ming Shi and Prof. Helge Bode revealed a true biochemical treasure trove.
Researchers from the research group led by Seigo Shima have reached a new step towards the use of hydrogen biocatalysts
In her doctoral thesis, the Max Planck junior scientist investigated the highly complex interaction between a fungal pathogen and its host plant. Her findings open up new possibilities for combating plant diseases.
