Pre-Columbian Manuscript Publication
What gods did the Aztecs worship? How was it recognized that a given day was suitable for agricultural work or marriage? Answers to these and other questions are available in the pre-Hispanic manuscript known as “Codex Vatican B (Vat. Lat. 3773)” manuscript. An international team of academics — led by Prof. K. Mikulska from UW — present a scientific publication of this pre-Columbian document.
Cultural Impacts of Climate Change in the 6th century
An international, interdisciplinary team of authors, including Prof. Robert Wiśniewski from the UW Faculty of History, show that, in response to increased rainfall and flooding in the sixth century AD, a new type of miracle emerged in the stories of saints circulating in Italy at the end of antiquity: the power of the saints over the element of water on land and in the air.
Information on Employee Capital Plans
We publish the information on Employee Capital Plans (ECP; in Polish: Pracownicze Plany Kapitałowe, PPK), a voluntary long-term saving programme, developed and co-financed by employees (employees and contractors subject to obligatory social insurance), employers and the state.
UW researchers proved the existence of the imaginary part of quantum mechanics
An international research team, to which scientists from the UW Centre for Quantum Optical Technologies (QOT) belong, has proved that the imaginary part of quantum mechanics can be observed in action in the real world. The research results have been published in the journals “Physical Review Letters” and “Physical Review A”.
Scientists from UW published their article in “Nature Chemical Biology”
Prof. Jacek Jemielity, Dr. Joanna Kowalska and Dr. Anaïs Depaix from UW, in collaboration with scientists from the University of California, San Francisco, demonstrated how enzyme activity in intracellular condensates contributes to mRNA degradation. The findings will enable further development of mRNA-based therapies.
