Danish researchers reveal how the MRSA bacterium handles stress

An international team of researchers has revealed a fundamental mechanism responsible for handling stress in staphylococci when they are exposed to antibiotics. It is expected that the research results eventually can be used to develop new antibiotics that circumvent such stress mechanisms.

Breakthrough in solar driven organic synthesis using cheap catalyst

Researchers from the groups of Flemming Besenbacher and Nina Lock at the Interdisciplinary Nanoscience Center (iNANO) at Aarhus University and Synfuels China Technology Co. Ltd. demonstrate the commercial potential of solar driven N-N coupling reactions in a new study published in Nature Communications.

Researchers reveal dual role for human RNA decay factor

Rearchers at Aarhus University have characterized the human RNA decay factor ZC3H18 and discovered its unanticipated role in the production of protein-coding RNA. The new study, published this week in Cell Reports, therefore reveals a double-faced activity of ZC3H18 in nuclear RNA fate decisions.

A Channel in the Heart of the Matter

How cells control the movement of ions, electrically charged species, in and out of the cell is a grand puzzle, whose completion will allow a thorough fundamental understanding of human physiology. A Danish-American team of researchers has found a piece of the puzzle with their determination of two structures of the human calcium-activated cation…

Highly educated men are more disposed to eating insects

Almost a third of Danish consumers are positively inclined to eating insects, and the majority of these are males living in the Copenhagen area. The consumers prefer processed products rather than whole insects. This is shown in a new report from Aarhus University.

The iClimate research centre covers a wide scope, and will carry out studies of areas such as the North Pole with unmanned drone missions, which will provide new insight into the processes resulting from climate change. (Photo: Colourbox) 
The centre has a holistic approach to the climate to find details in a larger perspective. This illustration shows how the different focus points will be included in the overall work. (Illustration: iClimate)
