Building-blocks of life

Biological evolution was preceded by a long phase of chemical evolution during which precursors of biopolymers accumulated. LMU chemists have discovered an efficient mechanism for the prebiotic synthesis of a vital class of such compounds.

Live is motion

LMU physicists have developed a way to distinguish the random motions of particles in non-living molecular systems from the motility of active living matter. The method affords new insights into fundamental biological processes.

Closing the ring

How bacterial cells divide in two is not fully understood. LMU physicists now show that, at high concentrations, a crucial protein can assemble into ring-shaped filaments that constrict the cell, giving rise to two daughter cells.

In the final step in bacterial cell division, constriction of the more …

Turbulence in bacterial cultures

Cultures of motile bacteria exhibit swirling patterns with a high level of self-organization that are reminiscent of classical turbulence. However, to describe these adequately, the conventional model of turbulence must be extended.
