Unique molecular CODE – Paramagnetic encoding of molecules
Today we commonly encounter contactless RFID chips in a number of products, but can similar technology be implemented at the molecular level? The answer is yes. The principle of molecular encoding conceived by Miloslav Polášek and his team at IOCB Prague represents a novel method on the frontier of chemistry and modern technologies. Their paper on paramagnetic encoding of molecules was recently published in the journal Nature Communications. The first author of the paper is Jan Kretschmer, a PhD student at the Faculty of Science.

Curbing Candida: The Cells That Keep Fungal Infections at Bay
Of all the fungi that live in the human body, the most infamous is probably the yeast Candida. This distant cousin of baker’s yeast is notorious for causing various types of thrush that can be a major nuisance, but it can also lead to an invasive infection that may, on occasion, prove fatal. In a study published in Nature Immunology, a Weizmann Institute of Science research team headed by Prof. Jakub Abramson uncovered a previously unknown defense mechanism employed by the immune system in fighting Candida infections. Immunologist Jan Dobeš from the Laboratory of Microbial Immunology at the our Department of Cell Biology also participated in the research.

Social mobility of elites in the Central European regions (1861–1926)
On what foundations did modern European societies grow? Who were the people who fundamentally directed and influenced the development of these societies? How did the position and selection of elites change in different regimes? What were the differences between elites in various Central European regions? Finding answers to these questions is the focus of the project Social mobility of elites in the Central European regions (1861–1926).

Global analysis reveals the planet's most diverse forests
The number of tree species in local ecosystems is a key measure of biodiversity. A well-known ecological rule states that species numbers increase from the poles to the equator. But why is this trend not completely universal, and what can influence local biodiversity? The scientific journal Nature Ecology and Evolution has just published a study that, by analysing an unrivalled database, compared the species richness of forests across virtually the entire planet and shed light on the reasons responsible for differences in tree diversity in different places. Scientists from our faculty, specifically the research group of the Department of Ecology led by Dr. Robert Tropek and Dr. Štěpán Janeček, also participated in the study published in this most prestigious ecological journal.

Tau protein on the trail
The tau protein is an important factor linked to the development of human neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer's disease. Yet there is still much we do not know about tau and other similar proteins. The most recent discoveries come from the work of an international team (Siahaan et al.) including co-authors from the Department of Cell Biology, Lenka Libusova, Ph.D. and graduate student Tereza Humhalová. The study has been published in Nature Chemical Biology.
