An international research team including the Department of Biology at the University of Hamburg has used computer models and engineering methods to analyze the mobility of dinosaur tails. According to a study published in the journal Scientific Reports, the researchers found that these tails could move at speeds of more than 100 kilometers per hour. Unlike previously assumed, however, they did not reach supersonic speeds.

In a new study, University of California, Berkeley, researchers find that portions of the SARS-CoV-2 "spike" protein, shown in the foreground, can damage the cell barriers that line the inside of blood vessels, contributing to some of COVID-19's most dangerous symptoms, including acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS).

Unique genetic research shows that the Ashkenazi Jewish community has been a virtually closed group since the 14th century. The international and interdisciplinary Genetic Legacies project examined DNA from the teeth of dozens of medieval and contemporary members of the community from the German city of Erfurt. The conclusion: in the past six hundred years there have been hardly any changes in the gene pool.
