Often technology has been inspired by processes that are observed in Nature. Such is the case of the electronic nose and tongue. These tools are called like this because they imitate the smell and the taste operation. Researchers use them to extract the composition of chemical solutions. A group of investigators of the UAB has developed a...

Llengues electrniques: Digueu-me quin gust t i us dir qu s

Although invisible to our eyes, the chemical processes determine the biological cycles in which we are all immersed. The knowledge of this microscopic world allows us to create applications for our daily life. The investigations on proton transference goes in this direction. In his doctoral dissertation, Ricard Casadesús analyzes these...

Reaccions i aplicacions del mn microscpic

The doctoral thesis of Aïda Pujol has studied a variant of preimplantational genetic diagnosis during in vitro fertilization and embryonic development. She analysed the numerical irregularity of the chromosomes in the oocytes using the fluorescent in situ hybridisation (FISH) technique. This allowed her to identify the different mechanisms...

Visual illusions, mirages that do not lie

In the figure of the left you will notice that the circles move. Well, what you see is not true. What happens is a visual illusion that is being produced right now in your head. A group of researchers at the Department of Basic, Evolutionary and Educational Psychology is studying our...

Les ilusions visuals podrien ser una protecci necessria.

The new knowledge about genetics together with the sophisticated skills of analysis helps the scientists to understand the carcinogenic process. The present study, made by investigators of the UAB, is an example of this work. By using the bladder carcinoma as a case study, they analyzed his chromosomal alterations and then compared with his...

Darrera la pista del cncer: alteracions cromosmiques i organitzaci biolgica dels tumors

Rome, Ist century B.C. The poet Horace, in his poems 2 from Book I and 15 from book IV, introduces allusions to gods important to Augustus family. The explanation Professor J.Gómez Pallarès offers about this presence takes in account unusual information: Horace's work can also be read as a virtual walk along the temples where the...

Horaci: de poesia lrica a guia

Researchers of the UAB are collaborating in an international project aimed to reconstruct the climatic history of our planet. Their laboratory: Los Andes, at more than 4.000 m altitude; their files: the lake sediments from these high altitudes. The study of past climatic records will help us to predict the possible effects of future climate...

ATLAS: A computer tool for traceabilty studies

Today scientific progress depends to a great extent on computer tools. In genetic studies, for example, a cascade of data is generated, which is only comprehensible after vertiginous calculations on the part of a computer. The Faculty of Veterinary Science is well aware of...
