Language is the most important form of communication. But how has this instrument evolved in the course of evolution? And what is happening in our brains when we are having a conversation with someone? Language proves to be extraordinarily complex. And as our articles show, the topic is not only interesting for classical linguists and computer scientists, but also for psychologists and behavioural scientists.

Max Planck Society criticizes travel restrictions for Turkish researchers

July 22, 2016

After the attempted coup, the Turkish Council of Higher Education now responds by launching reprisals against scientists. But these need access to international networks. [more]
The establishment of the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, was closely connected with the construction of the 100-m radio telescope near Effelsberg, a small village in the Eifel mountains which is part of Bad Münstereifel, a town approximately 40 km southwest of Bonn.

An international team of scientists has sequenced the whole genomes and epigenomes of more than 1,000 Arabidopsis thaliana plants, sampled from geographically diverse locations. The collection of 1,001 genomes and 1,001 epigenomes not only illuminates new aspects of its evolutionary history, but also provides a comprehensive, species-wide picture of the interaction between genetic and epigenetic variation in this important model plant.
