Removing estrogen from drinking water

Published on 25. Juni 2012
Bielefeld University students participating in MIT competition

A biological filter to remove estrogens from waste water and drinking water. The 15 Bielefeld students submitting this project to the ‘international Genetically Engineered Machine competition’ (iGEM) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Boston, USA are setting their sights high. They are persuading internationally active companies and associations in the biotechnology and chemistry sector to contribute several ten thousands of Euros to cover the costs of entering this rapidly expanding global competition in synthetic biology. Since May, they have been spending their free time in the laboratory making new DNA building blocks, reproducing them, and producing enzymes. First results give reason for optimism.
Liebe zum Detail und viel Geduld sind nötig, um wie Derya Kirasi, Studentin der Genom-basierten Systembiologie an der Universität Bielefeld, auch in der Freizeit stundenlang im Labor zu stehen.

Songbirds do have a sense of smell after all!

Published on 7. Oktober 2010

Biologists at Bielefeld overturn accepted opinion

Songbirds can't smell. At least, that's what everybody thought up to now. However, the truth looks different: Two biologists at Bielefeld University, Dr. Barbara Caspers and Tobias Krause, have found out that young zebra finches can distinguish their own nest from other nests by the way it smells. You can read their study in the online version of the journal Biology Letters published by the renowned British Royal Society.
