Silicon nanowires: better if longer

UAB researchers have studied one of the most promising unidimensional systems for future applications in the nanoelectronics field: the silicon nanowires. The scientists have studied silicon nanowires longer than those analyzed until now, and have concluded that are more realistic systems and...

A complex microbe population takes part in vegetal matter degradation in ruminant to obtain energy. Chamois (Rupicapra pyrenaica) and cow are ruminant species but they have to use its gastrointestinal system of different way. UAB researchers have compared the fermentative capacity of rumen bacteria populations in both species. They have...


UAB's researchers have applied atomic force microscopy to study chromatin -DNA and histones- in its natural aqueous environment and have found that it is much more compact than previously thought. A fact that will have to be considered to understand the mechanism of DNA transcription during the cell cycle.


Crohn disease causes ulcers in the small and large intestine. Disease symptoms, medicine secondary effects and the potential complications contribute to a psychosocial and emotional worsening that can cause anxiety or depression. A case-control study carried out by the Digestology Unit of the Parc Taulí Sabadell Hospital has demonstrated that,...

UAB and CREAF Scientists have demonstrate that the changes involved in the forest structure after a wildfire also imply changes in the animals that lived before. In order to validate its hypothesis, the investigators have studied ones of the most sensible communities to the changes in plant cover: the ant communities.
