How migrating birds 'run a marathon,' burning muscles and organs in long flights
Migrating birds complete long non-stop flights of many hours for songbirds and days for some shorebirds to reach breeding or wintering grounds. During such flights a bird's metabolic rate is very high, fueled by stored fat, but also by burning the protein in muscles and organs in a process that is not well understood, says eco-physiologist Alexander Gerson at UMass Amherst. He has a new grant to study the processes involved.

Insight into the immune system
Fundamental new insights into the functioning of the immune system and a new approach to treating autoimmune diseases: these are among the achievements of the transregional collaborative research centre TRR130 'B-cells: Immunity and Autoimmunity', whose co-ordinator is Prof. Lars Nitschke of the Division of Genetics at Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU). To enable the successful work to continue, the German Research Foundation (DFG) will be funding the transregional group for another 4 years with 13 million euros.

UMass Amherst biologist hopes to unlock secrets of flowers' diversity
There are at least 250,000 species of flowering plants on earth and though their flowers can look radically different, the same core set of genes generates this diversity through developmental processes that are not fully understood, says Madelaine Bartlett at UMass Amherst. She has received an NSF CAREER grant to study how this developmental control works at the gene transcriptional level and how it has changed over the course of evolution.
