The UniSysCat groups of Holger Dobbek and Ingo Zebger present in cooperation with Marius Horch from the University of York and Seigo Shima from the MPI in Marburg crystallographic and vibrational‐spectroscopic insights into...

Prof. Dr. Sandra Luber, SNSF Professor for theoretical and computational chemistry at the University of Zurich (Switzerland), investigated the structure and dynamics of the manganese-depleted photosystem II computationally in...

Matthias Driess and his co-workers from the Technische Universität Berlin, Germany, report on a silicon-mediated direct coupling of carbon monoxide, ammonia and primary amines to form acetamides which are central in organic...

Nediljko Budisa and his team engineer aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases (aaRSs) to provide access to the ribosomal incorporation of noncanonical amino acids. The researchers achieved a high-activity enzyme variant for photocaged...

UniSysCat researchers have developed hierarchically porous covalent organic frameworks (COFs) for the first time.

A collaborative study of two UniSysCat groups of the principal investigators Patrick Scheerer (Charitè-Universitätsmedizin Berlin) and Peter Hegemann (Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin) showed the structure-based design and...

Two UniSysCat research groups joined their efforts to obtain experimental evidence for vibrational energy transfer in proteins. In computer simulations, mapping energy transfer is fairly easy - but experimental evidence is...

In a joined collaboration, the groups of Lauterbach and Nestl designed an enzymatic cascade for the H2-driven synthesis of nitrogen-heterocycles.
