BIOMS (the Center for Modeling and Simulation in the Biosciences) in Heidelberg has been an initiative starting in 2004. The initiative had the aim to establish modeling approaches in the life sciences as a central discipline in Heidelberg with an impact also elsewhere in Germany. In the end of 2018 this initiative will finally come to an end. BIOMS financed junior groups and PostDocs over the years, many of which are now full professors at different institutions in Germany READ MORE

Insulin resistance and elevated blood glucose levels are considered to be the cause of type 2 diabetes. However, scientists from the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ) and Heidelberg University Hospital have now provided evidence that things might be completely different. They showed in flies that elevated levels of the metabolite MG (methylglyoxal) cause the typical diabetic disturbances of the metabolism and lead to insulin resistance, obesity and elevated blood sugar levels.

Many people know about Darwin’s voyage on the Beagle and his detailed examination of the finches in the Galapagos Islands, which gave him crucial insights for developing his theory of evolution. It is less well known that Darwin spent a considerable amount of time studying orchids too. His book Fertilisation of Orchids was, in fact, the next work he published after his famous On the Origin of Species. READ MORE

A genome study has proven that all specimen of Marmorkrebs, or marbled crayfish, originate from a single female. About 30 years ago, the original clone evolved in an aquarium. Ever since, the female animals have been able to spread successfully and massively without any help from males, scientists from the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ) report in a current publication. The clonal genome evolution of the crayfish may also help explain processes in tumors. READ MORE
