LMU researchers have discovered a further function of the base-pairing that holds the two strands of the DNA double helix together: it plays a crucial role in protecting the DNA from the ultraviolet rays of the Sun. more

An interdisciplinary research team of physicists and chemists at LMU could show, that the Watson-Crick base pairing is of fundamental importance for the UV-stability of natural DNA. more

Based on a streamlined micro-fluidics device scientists at LMU have developed a new technology for the construction of microarrays of proteins on a chip by in vitro expression. Mechanical properties of individual molecules could be probed and provided novel insights into their functions. more
