Toxic confusion: the dilemma of antibiotic regulation in West German food production (1951–1990)

PMCID: 4917893
PMID: 27084417
DOI: 10.1016/j.endeavour.2016.03.005

[…] ithin international bodies on cancer and food and Druckrey and his allies pressed for the establishment of an international list of “unobjectionable” food additives. In 1957, a European conference in Ascona—site of the famous vegetarian and nudist Monte Verità colony of artists, intellectuals, anarchists, and Lebensreform activists—developed an influential “positive list” of twenty-two unobjection […]


Unraveling the sequence dependent polymorphic behavior of d(CpG) steps in B DNA

Nucleic Acids Res
PMCID: 4191396
PMID: 25223784
DOI: 10.1093/nar/gku809

[…] ilable experimental information, allowing us to obtain structural information on base pair steps in sequence contexts where little or no experimental data exists (). In particular, the efforts of the Ascona B-DNA (ABC) consortium have been very useful in providing information on the conformational properties of the 10 unique base pairs steps surrounded by all the unique flanking base pairs (consti […]


An ensemble of B DNA dinucleotide geometries lead to characteristic nucleosomal DNA structure and provide plasticity required for gene expression

BMC Struct Biol
PMCID: 3031206
PMID: 21208404
DOI: 10.1186/1472-6807-11-1

[…] dal distribution in case of several dinucleotide parameters. Multimodal distribution of twist and slide values for several steps has been observed in molecular dynamics simulations carried out by the Ascona B-DNA consortium []. In case of such steps, use of distribution mean values is invalid. In this context, it must also be pointed out that our definition of a kink in terms of mean and standard […]


A coarse graining approach to determine nucleic acid structures from small angle neutron scattering profiles in solution

Nucleic Acids Res
PMCID: 1283524
PMID: 16282586
DOI: 10.1093/nar/gki936

[…] and beyond dynamical information is still under investigation. In fact, the question of convergence, stability and sampling of DNA molecular dynamics trajectories has recently been addressed by the ‘Ascona B DNA Consortium (ABC)’ and is well presented in reference . In addition, the determination of nucleic acid structures using NMR techniques is difficult due to the lack of tertiary contacts and […]
