Genetic switch makes the eyes of male bees large and of female bees small
Bee researchers at Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf (HHU) headed by Professor Dr Martin Beye have identified a new gene in honeybees, which is responsible for the dimorphic eye differentiation between males and females of the species. The researchers have now presented this gene and the evolutionary genetic conclusions they have drawn from it in the scientific journal Nature Communications.

James W. Lightfoot commended with the Heidelberg Academy Award
Neuroscientist and Max Planck Research Group Leader James Lightfoot is awarded the Academy Award of the Heidelberg Academy of Sciences and Humanity. Lightfoot is recognized for his scientific findings on how a predatory nematode species is able to recognize its own offspring and kin. This turned out to be dependent on a small peptide that provides an identification signal. The Academy Award will be presented at a special ceremony on May 22.
