Aerogel sheet mimics Earth’s greenhouse effect and could help to create fertile oases For future astronauts bound for Mars it will surely rank as a positive: when they sit down to dinner on the barren red planet, they should at least have plenty of greens. The harsh environment on Mars has always...

Comprehensive review of the future of CRISPR technology in crops

Added: 16.07.2019 1:19 | 7 views | 0 comments

CRISPR is thought of as 'molecular scissors' used to cut and edit DNA, but researchers are now looking far beyond these applications. In a new comprehensive review, they explore the current state of CRISPR in crops, and how scientists can enhance traditional breeding techniques in nontraditional ways to a growing population in the face of climate change, diseases, and pests.

How expectation influences perception

Added: 16.07.2019 1:19 | 6 views | 0 comments

Neuroscientists have identified distinctive patterns of neural activity that encode prior beliefs and help the brain make sense of uncertain signals coming from the outside world. For the first time, they showed that prior beliefs exert their effect on behavior by warping the representation of sensory events in the brain.

Novel insights into cholesterol regulation may lead to new therapies for heart disease

Added: 16.07.2019 0:19 | 1 views | 0 comments

In a landmark study, scientists discovered what makes white blood cell counts spike in individuals who have high cholesterol, possibly leading to new therapies for heart disease. They looked at hypercholesterolemia, which is the type of high cholesterol that causes very high levels of LDL -- the so-called 'bad' cholesterol -- to circulate in the blood. They identified a new regulatory mechanism in zebrafish models responsible for this increase.

Scientists propose new theory on Alzheimer's, amyloid connection

Added: 16.07.2019 0:19 | 1 views | 0 comments

'Is amyloid precursor protein the mastermind behind Alzheimer's or is it just an accomplice?' Researchers devised a multi-functional reporter for amyloid precursor protein and tracked its localization and mobility, noticing a strange association between the protein and cholesterol that resides in the cell membrane of synapses. With cholesterol's broad involvement in almost all aspects of neurons' life, they propose a new theory on the amyloid precursor protein connection in AD, especially in the surface of those tiny synapses, which triggers neurodegeneration.

By spatially confining fluorine, scientists could activate feeding gases while disabling its harmful effects. To put this rate in perspective, this new approach reduces the time of growing a 10 cm2 graphene from 10 minutes with previous methods, now down to only 3 minutes.
