Science Congress "We Scientists Shape Science"

Science has become bigger and faster. But we also have to make it better! We want science to be creative, solid, open, and helpful for society, and a good career opportunity for talented young people. Let’s start to change what it means to be a scientist! Join the congress "We Scientists Shape Science" - an initiative by the Swiss Academy of Sciences and the Swiss Science and Innovation Council on 26-27 January, 2017 in Bern.

Chemists Create Clusters of Organelles by Mimicking Nature

Scientists from the University of Basel have succeeded in organizing spherical compartments into clusters mimicking the way natural organelles would create complex structures. They managed to connect the synthetic compartments by creating bridges made of DNA between them. This represents an important step towards the realization of so-called molecular factories. The journal Nano Letters has published their results.
This research was supported by the RTD Project CINA.

Tuberkulose-Erreger suchen sich ihre ökologische Nische

Tuberkulose-Erreger können sich spezifisch in ihre ökologische Nische einpassen: Generalisten verbreiten sich weltweit, Spezialisten finden sich nur in bestimmten Weltregionen. Dies könnte die Entwicklung künftiger Impfstoffe weiter erschweren. Zu diesem Schluss kommen Forschende des Schweizerischen Tropen- und Public Health-Instituts und der Universität Basel aufgrund einer genetischen Analyse von Tuberkulose-Erregern aus über hundert Ländern.
Diese Forschungsarbeit wurde von unterstützt (RTD-Projekt TbX).
