Tom de Greef and coworkers publish in Nature Communications

FMS staff member Tom de Greef (TU/e) and coworkers recently published their work on hierarchical control of enzymatic actuators by using DNA-based programming in Nature Communications. To date their approach shows one of the most advanced DNA-based circuits in terms of complexity and versatility.

Voets and coworkers reconstruct the structure of 1.5 MDa Adhesin

Dr. Ilja Voets (TU/e) and coworkers publish in Science Advances where they report that they managed to unravel the structure of a 1.5 MDa Adhesin protein, which is a bacterial protein involved in ice binding. It is the first detailed structure at the molecular level of a bacterial adhesin. This work might contribute to the […]

FMS researchers co-author work published in Nature

FMS researchers Bert Meijer (TU/e) and Ghislaine Vantomme (TU/e) contributed to the work by TU/e researchers that was recently published in Nature. In their work they developed new plastics that can move upon the exposure to light. An impressive video of the material can be found here. For more details on the work, find the paper here.

Paul Kouwer and coworkers publish in Nature Communications

FMS member Dr. Paul Kouwer and coworkers at the Radboud University in Nijmegen recently published their work in Nature Communications, entitled: ‘Nonlinear mechanics of hybrid polymer networks hat mimic the complex mechanical environment of cells‘. Publication details: Maarten Jaspers, Sarah L. Vaessen, Pim van Schayik, Dion Voerman, Alan E. Rowan and Paul H.J. Kouwer, Nonlinear mechanics […]

FMS members granted prestigious NWO Vidi grants

FMS members dr. Patricia Dankers (TU/e) and dr. Tom de Greef (TU/e) were awarded with the NWO Vidi grant worth 800,000 euros. Tom de Greef wants to use DNA in order to measure the interaction between cells and proteins. In his Vidi project, he wants to develop a ‘nano-slide gauge’ based on DNA, which is proposed to accurately measure […]

Nature Communications for Prof. E.W. Meijer and coworkers

FMS researchers from Eindhoven University of Technology recently published their work on dynamic diversity of synthetic supramolecular polymers in water in Nature Communications. Their findings were probed by hydrogen / deuterium exchange. Media attention: TU/e press release Publication details: Xianwen Lou, Rene P.M. Lafleur, Christianus M.A. Leenders, Sandra M.C. Schoenmakers, Nicholas M. Matsumoto, Matthew M. […]
