NMR Center part of new EU project: providing worldwide access to infrastructures in solid-state NMR

The use of solid-state NMR spectroscopy is pivotal in enabling the characterisation of structure and dynamics at the atomic-level. These methods rely on access to sophisticated and costly solid-state NMR equipment that is only available in few national facilities. The Danish Center for Ultrahigh Field NMR Spectroscopy at Aarhus University, with…

New study capture sugar transport fundamental to plants

In a collaborative effort with Professor Birgit Schiøtt (iNANO member) and her research group, the researchers also used state-of-the-art Molecular Dynamics simulations to support the notion of proton binding employing multiple independent approaches.

Effective deconstruction of PU by catalyst based on earth-abundant metal

Polyurethane (PU) is a widely used material in a countless number of everyday products as well as more sophisticated objects like aircrafts. Unfortunately, there are very few methods to reuse or recycle PU and when recycled, the product often loses its original properties. Researchers at Aarhus University are working tirelessly on establishing a…

New research centre to help solve the climate crisis

Professors Troels Skrydstrup and Kim Daasbjerg participate in a new, unique research centre, which has just been launched. The Novo Nordisk Foundation CO2 Research Center is established with a grant of DKK 630 million from the Novo Nordisk Foundation (NNF) and based at Aarhus University. The new centre will ensure cross-disciplinary collaboration…

A better model for the interpretation of protein hydrogen exchange data

When studying stability and folding of proteins hydrogen exchange substitution is a very important technique. However, the interpretation of the data is complicated by electrostatic effects and the magnitude of these has not been accounted for until now. Mulder et al. have now shown a way to better foretell these effects and thereby provide a key…

New long-read sequencing technology reveals the surprising complexity of circular RNAs

A paper from Jørgen Kjems and colleagues published in Nature Communications presents a new method to determine the full-length sequence and isoform variation of a class of RNAs called circular RNAs. The study is conducted in human and mouse brains and shows that many circRNAs exist in a large number of different version and that a special class of…
