First SystemsX.ch Postdoc Workshop a success

“I would strongly recommend this workshop to all postdocs, whatever their plans for their career are. These skills are universal and can help us be better scientists, function well as part of a team and become good leaders”, says Julien Limenitakis, University of Berne, after attending the first SystemsX.ch Postdoc Workshop. He was one of 16 participants of the two-day course, which took place in February 2015 in Gerzensee, Berner Oberland.  more»

Physics & Biology: How Chameleons change their colours

Combining Physics and Biology techniques, we show that chameleons shift colour through active tuning of a lattice of guanine nanocrystals within a superficial thick layer of dermal iridophores. In addition, we show that a deeper population of iridophores with larger crystals protect them from excessive exposure to solar radiations by reflecting a large proportion of the sunlight power, especially in the near-infrared range.

This research was supported by SystemsX.ch RTD Project EpiPhysX.
