  • New observations shed light on most powerful explosions in the Universe 2019-11-21 Gamma-ray bursts arise from the most powerful explosions in the known Universe, and are linked to the birth of a black hole. New observations reveal that they are even more powerful than expected, and emit radiation at higher energies than previously known. The detections, made by two different ground-based telescopes, provide new insights into the mechanisms driving gamma-ray bursts.
  • Nine researchers at Stockholm University among the world’s most cited 2019-11-20 The Web of Science Group recently published its prestigious annual list of the world’s most cited and influential researchers. Nine researchers from Stockholm University have been named on the 2019 Highly Cited Researchers list.
  • New technique enables fine mapping of closely related cells in situ 2019-11-20 SciLifeLab researchers have developed a new technique called “Probabilistic cell typing by in situ sequencing” or pciSeq. The new technique can identify cell types as well as determine their spatial location in a much more efficient way than previous methods.
