Mehr als 500.000 Pflanzenarten gibt es auf der Welt. Sie alle haben einen gemeinsamen Vorfahren. Wie sich aus einer einzigen Art diese enorme Vielfalt entwickeln konnte, hat ein internationales Forschungsteam unter Beteiligung der Universität Halle untersucht. In der aktuellen Ausgabe der renommierten Fachzeitschrift "Nature" präsentieren die Wissenschaftlerinnen und Wissenschaftler die Ergebnisse eines weltweit einmaligen Projekts zur Evolution der Pflanzen.

Nicht groß, aber unverzichtbar: Im Rahmen des Programms "Kleine Fächer-Wochen" der Hochschulrektorenkonferenz starten im Wintersemester 2019/20 die "Kleine Fächer-Wochen Sprechwissenschaft" an der Universität Halle. Den Auftakt macht ein Veranstaltungs-Quartett im November. Bis Ende Januar gibt es dann unter dem Leitthema "miteinander sprechen – verantwortlich, kompetent, reflektiert" zahlreiche weitere Programmpunkte, die das Bewusstsein für die Bedeutung des bundesweit einmaligen Fachs stärken sollen.

Patented concept: novel, high-performance diodes and transistors

Today`s computer processors are increasingly pushed to their limits due to their physical properties. Novel materials could be the solution. Physicists from Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg (MLU) have investigated if and how these materials might be developed. They have created, tested and filed a patent for a concept that utilises the latest findings from the field of spintronics. The team reported on their research in the journal "ACS Applied Electronic Materials".

Physicists discover new material for highly efficient data processing

A new material could aid in the development of extremely energy efficient IT applications. The material was discovered by an international research team in cooperation with Martin Luther University. The electrons at the oxide interface of the material possess special properties which drastically increase the conversion rate of spin current to charge current. This is the foundation for future spintronic applications. The new material has been found to be more efficient than any previously investigated material, the team writes in the journal "Nature Materials".

Study in "Science": Biodiversity changes more in water than on land

Rapid changes in biodiversity are taking place in many places around the world. But the diversity of species does not change the same everywhere. A new study in the journal "Science" shows that the composition of species in marine ecosystems is changing more rapidly than on land. The study was led by the German Centre for Integrative Biodiversity Research (iDiv) Halle-Jena-Leipzig, the Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg (MLU) and the University of St. Andreas in Scotland.

Climate change and ecosystems: there are too few realistic experiments

When it comes to the impact of climate change on ecosystems, we still have large knowledge gaps. Most experiments are unrealistic because they do not correspond to projected climate scenarios for a specific region. Thus, we lack reliable data on what ecosystems might look like in the future, as a team of biodiversity researchers from Central Germany show in the journal "Global Change Biology".

Die traditionelle Disputation der Universität Halle am Reformationstag, Donnerstag, 31. Oktober 2019, beschäftigt sich in diesem Jahr unter dem Titel "Wissenstransfer: Fluch oder Segen für die Wissenschaft?" mit dem Thema Wissenschafts-PR. Das wissenschaftliche Streitgespräch, bei dem vier Disputanten Argumente und Gegenargumente austauschen, beginnt 15 Uhr in der Stiftung Leucorea in Wittenberg. Zuvor ziehen die Mitglieder des Akademischen Senats der MLU ab 14.30 Uhr in akademischer Tradition in ihren historischen Talaren vom Rathaus zur Stiftung Leucorea.

Plant protection: researchers develop new modular vaccination kit

Simple, fast and flexible: It could become significantly easier to vaccinate plants against viruses in future. Scientists at Martin Luther University, the Leibniz Institute of Plant Biochemistry and the National Research Council in Italy have developed a new method for this purpose. It enables the rapid identification and production of precisely tailored substances that combat different pathogens. The researchers discuss their work in the journal "Nucleic Acids Research".

Why humans in Africa fled to the mountains during the last ice age

People in Ethiopia did not live in low valleys during the last ice age. Instead they lived high up in the inhospitable Bale Mountains. There they had enough water, built tools out of obsidian and relied mainly on giant rodents for nourishment. This discovery was made by an international team of researchers led by Martin Luther University. In the current issue of "Science", the researchers provide the first evidence that our African ancestors had already settled in the mountains during the Palaeolithic period, about 45,000 years ago.

New Research Training Group: Plant cells as small-scale assembly lines

Growth for plant research in Halle: A new Research Training Group (RTG) opened at Martin Luther University. Doctoral students are investigating how complex biochemical processes are controlled in subdivided rooms (so-called "compartments") of plant cells. The Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) is investing around four million euros in the RTG 2498 "Communication and Dynamics of Plant Cell Compartments".

Wie können Schülerinnen und Schüler mit speziellem Förderbedarf angemessen betreut werden, sodass sie am deutschen Bildungssystem erfolgreich teilhaben können? Dieser Frage geht das Institut für Rehabilitationspädagogik der Universität Halle seit nunmehr 70 Jahren nach. Am Freitag, 25. Oktober 2019, findet in den Franckeschen Stiftungen deshalb eine Festveranstaltung statt, die einen Blick auf die Geschichte des Instituts wirft, das im Oktober 1949 gegründet wurde.
