The nucleus, the command centre of the eukaryotic cell, is separated from the cytoplasm by the nuclear envelope. How the nuclear envelope is disassembled at the beginning of cell division and how it is reassembled at its end, is largely unknown. The process is a complex interplay of cellular membranes and proteins. Scientists at the Friedrich-Miescher-Laboratory in Tübingen try to understand the underlying mechanisms. more
For the example of technologically important II-VI semiconductors and group- III-nitrides we demonstrate how modern computational techniques for band structure calculations can be combined with recent developments in density functional theory to meet the challenges in the theoretical description of the electronic properties of these materials. more
