Kohlenwasserstoffe: Ein Fossil – aber noch nicht ausgestorben

In der Fortsetzung unserer Energie-Reihe stellt uns Menno van Dijk die Vergangenheit, Gegenwart und Zukunft der Kohlenwasserstoffe, die immer noch den am weitesten verbreiteten Treibstoff ausmachen, vor.

Συστημική βιολογία στη σχολική τάξη;

Για τις επιστήμες της ζωής η συστημική βιολογία αποτελεί ένα ταχέως αναπτυσσόμενοo πεδίο. Όμως, με τι σχετίζεται; Και έχει άραγε θέση μέσα σε μία σχολική τάξη; Ο Les Grivell από τον Ευρωπαϊκό Οργανισμό Μοριακής Βιολογίας (European Molecular Biology Organization - EMBO στη Χαϊδελβέργη της Γερμανίας, διερευνά.

Folsäure: warum Schülerinnen und Schüler wissen sollten, was es mit Folsäure auf sich hat

Eleanor Hayes, Holger Maul und Nele Freerksen untersuchen, warum Folsäure ein wichtiger Ernährungsbestandteil Ihrer Schülerinnen und Schüler ist – jetzt und für die Zukunft einer gesunden Familie.

Deadly proteins: prions

Claudia Mignone and Douglas Pierce-Price take us on a trip to the Chilean Andes, to the site of ALMA, the world’s largest radio astronomy facility, which is set to discover the secrets of our cosmic origins.

Impulsando el mundo

La energía, ¿por qué es tan importante, de dónde la sacamos y cuánta usamos? Gieljan de Vries, del FOM-Institute for Plasma Physics holandés de Rijnhuizenw1 investiga sobre estos temas.

Selecção natural a nível molecular

Sabemos que determinadas sequências genéticas podem ajudar-nos a sobreviver no nosso meio ambiente – o que é a base da evolução. Mas demonstrar quais as sequências genéticas que são benéficas e como nos ajudam a sobreviver não é fácil – especialmente em populações no estado selvagem. Jarek Bryk relata alguma da investigação relevante mais recente.

Química y luz

Peter Douglas y Mike Garley investigan cómo la química y la luz interactúan en muchos aspectos de nuestro día a día.

Prirodna selekcija na molekularnoj razini

Znamo da nam specifične sekvence gena mogu pomoći u preživljavanju u našem okolišu – to je osnova evolucije. Ali pokazati koje sekvence su korisne i kako nam pomažu nije lako – posebno u divljim populacijama. Jarek Bryk opisuje neka važna, novija istraživanja.
