Lecture screening in Great Zoological Hall: Viral and Cellular Noncoding RNAs: Insight Into Evolution

Joan Elaine Argetsinger Steitz (born January 26, 1941) is Sterling Professor of Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry at Yale University and Investigator at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. She is known for her discoveries involving RNA, including ground-breaking insights into how ribosomes interact with messenger RNA by complementary base pairing and that introns are spliced by small nuclear ribonucleic proteins (snRNPs), which occur in eukaryotes. Screening takes place in Great Zoological Hall on Thrusday 5th of May, 5. p.m.

Popular Science: From mining landscape to natural forest

A large portion of deposits of mineral and energy resources is located in the forests. Before mining, stripping the surface is necessary. But this means a loss of unique forest ecosystems. A question remains: what next? Scientists from universities in North America, Europe and Australia are working on a new approach to return the affected land to its natural state through reforestation.

Czech scientists solved the enigma of coexistence of people with Rh+ and Rh- blood groups

Before the advent of modern medicine, about 10 000 Rh positive children born to Rh negative mothers were dying for hemolytic anemia in the US each year. Without the superiority of the heterozygotes – the carriers of both variants of Rhesus gene, the less abundant allele should be quickly eliminated from any population. Jaroslav Flegr probably solved 80 years old enigma of coexistence of carriers of two variants of Rhesus gene in the same population.

Quo Vadis Chemie: Microfluidic assays for enhanced biochemical analysis

Start date Mar 09, 2016

Microfluidic biosensors have gained considerable attention in recent years, due to their potential to serve as future point-of-care diagnostic tools. However, despite significant technological advancements, achieving clinically-relevant sensitivity in short analysis time remains a major challenge for many applications. In particular, slow reaction kinetics remain a major bottleneck in the analysis of low sample concentrations. The lecture will be held by asst. prof. Moran Bercovici, Israel Institute of Technology.
