Cells use sophisticated repair mechanisms to deal with damaged genetic material. In cooperation with scientists from Munich and Berlin, researchers from Technische Universität Darmstadt (TU Darmstadt) and GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung, Darmstadt, recently identified one of the elementary structural units of this repair mechanism. They reported their findings in the renowned scientific journal Nature Communications.

For the first time, a team of researchers under the leadership of TU Darmstadt and with the participation of scientists from the GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung Darmstadt has succeeded in measuring the transition between energy levels of the lithium-like ions of bismuth with such precision that it has become possible to reassess underlying theories. This has led to a surprising result. The scientists have now published this result in "Nature Communications": the understanding of...
