"Scaling from molecules to communities: developing a quantitative understanding of the emergent properties of microbial communities.”
In the current study that was led by Simona Amodeo, Irina Bregy and Anneliese Hoffmann from the Ochsenreiter lab, we identify and characterize two novel components of a distinct complex involved mitochondrial genome segregation. As very often in science this was a team effort that also involved our collaborators Benoit Zuber from the Anatomy in Bern and Falk Butter from the IMB in Mainz, Germany.
“Congratulations to Ioana Gheorghe for her outstanding MSc thesis on organ growth coordination in C. elegans, which was awarded the Faculty prize 2023!”
"Very happy to announce the publication of our latest paper on a complex of proteins found at endocytic compartments that seems to have implications in the secretion of virulence factors in our favourite weird parasitic organism Giardia lamblia."
We are proud to announce that Shohreh Teimuri received the best poster award at this year's LS2 meeting.
Carmen Faso, together with Irene Adrian-Kalchhauser from the Vetsuisse Faculty, are new co-presidents of the
Platform Biology of the Swiss Academy of Natural Sciences (SCNAT). The SCNAT promotes networking opportunities, the transfer of knowledge & a dialogue with society & politics.
