Entwicklung von DNS Computern

Biomolekulare Computer, die aus DNS und anderen biologischen Molekuelen bestehen, existieren heute nur in einigen wenigen Speziallabors. Wissenschaftler am Weizmann Institut haben einen Weg gefunden, 'benutzerfreundliche' mikroskopische Computer zu entwickeln, die komplexe Berechnungen und komplizierte Datenabfragen durchfuehren koennen.

The science of longer lasting beer

One of the long standing problems in the drinks industry is how to prevent chemical processes in the drinks compromising their taste, quality and shelf life. In particular, riboflavin (vitamin B2) is responsible for driving photooxidation reactions that affect the flavour of many drinks and so they often have to be packaged in light-shielded containers. Scientists now have developed a way of removing riboflavin.
