Mesoderm formation is an important process of embryonic development. It plays an essential role in trunk formation and organ development in mammals. It is controlled by several interacting signalling pathways, which also play an important role in tumour progression. Novel methods are utilized for deciphering the complex regulatory networks comprising thousands of gene products, which control mesoderm formation in the embryo and in tumours. more
The central topic of the Bioinformatics / Structural Proteomics group is the analysis and prediction of protein structures via networks. Methods are developed to reconstruct the 3D structure from such networks with the aim to identify the determining contacts in these structure networks. This interdisciplinary work provides potential application in protein and drug design. more
String theory is a central player in our search for a consistent theory of quantum gravity. The theory forces us to re-evaluate familiar conceptions of space and time. In the following article this shall be illustrated with examples. more
A new generation of gravitational wave observatories offers the possibility for the first direct detection of gravitational waves. LIGO, the Laser Interferometric Gravitational Wave Observatory, has completed its two-year-long fifth science run (“S5”), the first at its design sensitivity, and preliminary results from the analysis of S5 data are producing new information about astrophysical phenomena. more
