Entstand das Leben in einer RNA-Welt?
In Chicago konnten die Wissenschaftler zwar beweisen, dass auf einer unbelebten Urzeit-Erde organische Verbindungen entstehen konnten. Die Frage, die Forscher seit dem beschäftigte, war nun aber: Könnten unter diesen Bedingungen auch die richtigen Moleküle entstehen? Also jene Bausteine, die für more …

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.
How did life originate on Earth and what were its chemical more …

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 …
