A quadrillionth of a second in slow motion

(Technical University of Munich (TUM)) Many chemical processes run so fast that they are only roughly understood. To clarify these processes, a team from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has now developed a methodology with a resolution of quintillionths of a second. Show More Summary

Watching myelin patterns form: Evidence for sheath remodeling revealed by in vivo imaging

(Technical University of Munich (TUM)) Nerve fibers are surrounded by a myelin sheath. Scientists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have now made the first-ever "live" observations of how this protective layer is formed. The team discovered that the characteristic patterns of the myelin layer are determined at an early stage. Show More Summary

Star architecture and its impact on the city

(Technical University of Munich (TUM)) The Guggenheim Museum by star architect Frank Gehry led to an economic boom in the Spanish city of Bilbao. This 'Bilbao Effect' is appealing to many urban planners and politicians who look to better position their cities in economic and social terms by building exceptional architectural projects.

Outdoor instruction makes students more open to learning

Being taught science subjects outdoors increases student motivation. A study by the Technical University of Munich (TUM) and the University of Mainz therefore suggests offering more outdoor instruction at the lower secondary level.

Studying outdoors is better

(Technical University of Munich (TUM)) Being taught science subjects outdoors increases student motivation. A study by the Technical University of Munich (TUM) and the University of Mainz therefore suggests offering more outdoor instruction at the lower secondary level.

Ecuador: Deforestation destroys more dry forest than climate change

Tropical forests all over the world are at risk from climate change and deforestation for arable land. Scientists from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) and the Thünen-Institute compared losses due to deforestation with those that would result in extreme climate change scenarios in Ecuador.

Ecuador: Deforestation destroys more dry forest than climate change

(Technical University of Munich (TUM)) Tropical forests worldwide are at risk. Two of the main threats are the deforestation for arable land and climate change. Scientists from Technical University of Munich (TUM) and Thünen-Institute compared the losses due to deforestation with those that would result in extreme climate change scenarios in Ecuador.

Pancreatic cancer: Gene duplication explains tumor aggressiveness

(Technical University of Munich (TUM)) Pancreatic cancer is a form of cancer associated with the highest mortality rates in the world. Genetic changes that could explain his aggressiveness and early metastasis had not been found yet....Show More Summary

User experiment at BESSY II—complex tessellations, extraordinary materials

An international team of researchers lead by the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has discovered a reaction path that produces exotic layers with semiregular structures. These kinds of materials are interesting because they frequently possess extraordinary properties. Show More Summary

Identifying species via environmental DNA

Environmental DNA analysis makes it possible to detect water organisms without having to capture them first. For the first time, a team at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) systematically investigated the effect of various environmental factors on environmental DNA analyses. Show More Summary

Species identification in the water bottle

(Technical University of Munich (TUM)) Environmental DNA analysis makes it possible to detect water organisms without having to capture them first. For the first time, a team at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) systematically investigated the effect of various environmental factors on environmental DNA analyses. Show More Summary

Multiple sclerosis: Cholesterol crystals prevent regeneration in central nervous system

(Technical University of Munich (TUM)) Multiple Sclerosis is a chronic inflammatory disease of the central nervous system, in which the immune cells attack myelin sheaths. Regeneration of myelin sheaths is necessary for patients to recover from MS relapses. Show More Summary

Double strike against tuberculosis

(Technical University of Munich (TUM)) In search of new strategies against life-threatening tuberculosis infections, a team from the Technical University of Munich (TUM), as well as Harvard University and Texas A&M University in the USA have found a new ally. Show More Summary

Biofilms as construction workers

(Technical University of Munich (TUM)) Biofilms are generally seen as a problem to be eradicated due to the hazards they pose for humans and materials. However, these communities of algae, fungi, or bacteria possess interesting properties both from a scientific and technical standpoint. Show More Summary
