RNA-Moleküle haben ein kurzes Leben

Forscher am Biozentrum der Universität Basel haben eine neue Methode entwickelt, um die Halbwertszeit von RNA-Molekülen zu messen. Dabei zeigte sich, dass gängige Methoden verzerrte Messergebnisse liefern und RNA-Moleküle durchschnittlich nur zwei Minuten leben, zehnmal kürzer als bislang angenommen. Die Ergebnisse sind jetzt im Fachjournal «Science Advances» veröffentlicht (Bild: Universität Basel, Biozentrum). Diese Studie wurde unterstützt durch das Research and Technology Development (RTD) project StoNets.

First characterization of an ancient, most dosage-sensitive plant gene

It is the first deep characterization of a very conserved plant-specific protein that displays a highly dosage-sensitive action. The appearance of this gene in evolution correlates with the emergence of true sieve elements in angiosperms. This research was supported by a Interdisciplinary PhD Project.

Avoiding shadows to ensure a place in the sun

In order to guarantee optimum access to the leaves, plants have developed various strategies during evolution. Resarchers at CIG in Lausanne have elucidated a mechanism allowing a localized response of the plant in case of partial shade (image: Fabrice Ducrest, Unil).This research was supported by the Research, Technology and Development (RTD) Project PlantGrowth2.
