Bioinformaticians decode protein that can reverse declining cognitive performance in old age

In old age, memory performance declines in most people, often to such an extent that this massively affects their everyday life. In a joint study with Stanford University, bioinformaticians at Saarland University have now identified a protein with a rejuvenating effect that influences the process of declining brain performance in old age. Their research findings were published in the journal Nature. The New York Times also reported.

Launch of QUASIM project for quantum-computing-supported simulation in manufacturing

Research in the field of quantum computing (QC) is registering rapid progress and has been raising expectations for use in industrial production scenarios for some time. The manufacturing industry is one of the central German economic sectors with outstanding importance. In QUASIM (QC-Enhanced Service Ecosystem for Simulation in Manufacturing), a team of scientists and project partners from industry is researching possible forms of implementing QC in the metalworking industry. The project has been [...]

Brains On Code: EU funding in the millions for pioneering research on brain activity during program comprehension

What goes on in the minds of programmers when they think about program code? Understanding this is important, because it could influence many aspects of modern software development – for example, programming education or the design of programming languages. Sven Apel, Computer Science professor at Saarland University, now receives an “Advanced Grant” from the European Research Council (ERC) for his research on this question and will be funded with about 2.5 million euros over the next five years.
