What makes the same type of cells different

A research team led by Lucas Pelkmans at ETH Zurich has managed to decipher a well-known phenomenon that had, until now, remained unexplained: why cells of the same type can react differently and what the reason for this is.

Laser pulses control single electrons in complex molecules

Predatory fish are well aware of the problem: In a swarm of small fish it is hard to isolate prey. A similar situation can be found in the microcosm of atoms and molecules, whose behavior is influenced by 'swarms' of electrons. In order to achieve control over single electrons in a bunch, ultrashort light pulses of a few femtoseconds duration are needed. Physicists succeeded for the first time to use light for controlling single, negatively charged elementary particles in a bunch of electrons.
