Causing Continued Concern: Forests

It has been too dry and warm in Germany for the third year in a row. Many trees are suffering, especially spruce. One of the consequences: they are more susceptible to pests. Jülich researchers are observing the development in the Eifel and measuring the effects, for example on the atmosphere’s CO2 content.

They’re small, but mighty: microorganisms. The industry known as “white biotechnology” takes advantage of their potential in a variety of ways. However, one particular challenge that is often faced is to find the right cell out of millions. Jülich researchers have now managed to develop a biosensor that makes searching for the right candidates easier.

New Model for District-Based Coronavirus Forecasts

Neuroinformatics scientists at Osnabrück University and data specialists at Forschungszentrum Jülich are releasing new model results daily to forecast COVID-19 infections. The results include estimates updated daily of the reported new infections and a 5-day forecast for every German district.

They are considered to be promising candidates for the solar modules of the future: materials with a perovskite structure. Prof. Michael Saliba has been heavily involved in this young field of research since its beginning. At Jülich, he is now pursuing a new idea.
