Ready-to-use recipe for turning plant waste into gasoline
Bioscience engineers at KU Leuven already knew how to make gasoline in the laboratory from plant waste such as sawdust. Now the researchers have developed a roadmap, as it were, for industrial cellulose gasoline. In 2014, at KU Leuven's Centre for Surface Chemistry and Catalysis, researchers succeeded in converting sawdust into building blocks for gasoline.

NO sex without KISS(peptin)!
NO sex without KISS(peptin)!
A research team led by Prof. Julie Bakker (GIGA-ULiège) and Prof. Ulrich Boehm (Saarland University, Germany) has made a major advancement in our understanding of how the brain controls sex. Using female mice as a model, the researchers found that a hormone in the brain, (appropriately) called kisspeptin, drives both attraction to the opposite sex and sexual behavior.
