Why do guillemot chicks leap from the nest before they can fly?

It looks like a spooky suicide when small, fluffy guillemot chicks leap from the cliffs and fall several hundred metres towards the sea – long before they are fully fledged. But researchers have now discovered that there is good reason behind the madness.

Transport of molecular motors into cilia

Molecular motors produce the force that powers the beat of sperm cell tails to generate movement toward the egg cell for fertilization. New research now shows how the molecular motors that power the movement of sperm cells are recognized and specifically transported into the tail region of the cell. This knowledge can pave the way for a better…

Aarhus University will provide Central Jutland with climate solutions

The Coast to Coast Climate Challenge (C2C CC) kicks off at the Herning Congress Centre on 30 March. The Central Denmark Region is marking the DKK 90 million focus on climate adaptation, where Aarhus University will contribute with research and education. Read more (in Danish only here).

Aarhus University is now getting its own space programme. The first satellite in the project is called Delphini-1 – the mission emblem is shown here.
The satellite measures 10x10x10 cm and will have a ‘fighting weight’ of just over 1 kg when it orbits the Earth. Delphini-1 will collect data, and the focal point of the first mission is to demonstrate that this type of space mission can create the knowledge wanted by the researchers. (Illustration: GomSpace)

Structural knowledge of the DNA repair complex

New Danish research provides mechanistic insight into how DNA is monitored and repaired if damage occurs. The results may eventually help to improve the treatment of certain types of cancer, as the DNA repair complex provides a mechanism for cancer cells to resist chemotherapy.
