But what can and should end up in feed troughs? With his background in veterinary medicine, Zentek focuses on animal health in particular during his research into the best possible feeds.
How the NeuroCure research alliance draws top scientists to Berlin, and how tricky diseases are decoded there

“OpenUp!” online database project launched at the Botanic Garden and Botanical Museum
Two billion natural history objects, scientists estimate, slumber worldwide in numerous collections in museums and herbaria. In part, these are objects – including pressed plants, stuffed animals, drawings, engravings – from the 17th and 18 centuries. The "OpenUp!" database project recently launched at the Botanic Garden and Botanical Museum (BGBM) of Freie Universität aims to digitalize about one million of these objects within the next three years.
