Most genes are team players. Only when interacting with other genes can they perform properly. Scientists from the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ) have now found a possibility to exploit this for the development of new cancer therapies. They generate maps of genetic interactions in cancer cells. These maps can then be used to determine the sites where it would be most effective to interfere with the interplay of cancer genes.

Reliably predicting the onset and trajectory of a disease might seem like a distant dream. But a European consortium is aiming to achieve exactly this using a set of emerging technologies with the analysis of single cells at their core. Researchers from leading European science institutions have now submitted a proposal for a so-called "Future and Emerging Technologies Flagships". The large-scale project, which also involves scientists from the German Cancer Research Center, is called LifeTime. READ MORE

BIOMS (the Center for Modeling and Simulation in the Biosciences) in Heidelberg has been an initiative starting in 2004. The initiative had the aim to establish modeling approaches in the life sciences as a central discipline in Heidelberg with an impact also elsewhere in Germany. In the end of 2018 this initiative will finally come to an end. BIOMS financed junior groups and PostDocs over the years, many of which are now full professors at different institutions in Germany READ MORE

Insulin resistance and elevated blood glucose levels are considered to be the cause of type 2 diabetes. However, scientists from the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ) and Heidelberg University Hospital have now provided evidence that things might be completely different. They showed in flies that elevated levels of the metabolite MG (methylglyoxal) cause the typical diabetic disturbances of the metabolism and lead to insulin resistance, obesity and elevated blood sugar levels.
