UKRI and ERC fund University of Dundee’s Gene “Video Editing” for cancer and neurodegenerative disease drug discovery research

The researchers at the University of Dundee have received funding of £4.4 million to explore how our genes can be ‘video-edited’ to develop new drugs for cancer, neurodegeneration, and other diseases. Genes are the pieces of DNA that contain the information required to make different types of proteins that build and maintain living organisms. Alternative splicing enables the production of …

IIT Roorkee team develops Structural Color based Sensors from agro-waste sugarcane bagasse; to have implications for Intelligent Pack

Today, colour trends in fashion and design include sparkling hues like holographic, pearlescent, and iridescent effects. Also, there is a cost to the environment. This development is a solution to the problem by using renewable resources like sugarcane bagasse IIT Roorkee researchers have developed structural colour-based sensors by making structural colour from an unexpected natural resource–agro-waste sugarcane bagasse. It is …

Short-distance migration critical for climate change adaptation : Peer reviewed – experimental study – humans

Short-distance migration, which accounts for the vast majority of migratory movements in the world, is crucial for climate change adaptation, according to new research from the University of East Anglia (UEA). Contrary to common assumptions, most migratory movements are people moving short distances, largely due to economic, social and environmental factors, such as climate change. A study of people living …

Physicists at IIT Kanpur propose hydrodynamic entropy to explain 2nd Law of Thermodynamics

Researchers from the Department of Physics, IIT Kanpur, have discovered that 2D Euler flow—flow with zero viscosity–evolves from disorder to order. The study involving analytical arguments and accurate numerical simulations provides useful insights that can help the manner in which scientists approach important fundamental topics such as order to disorder evolution, Second Law of Thermodynamics and thermalization, the process through …

Exquisitely preserved embryo found inside fossilised dinosaur egg

A 72 to 66-million-year-old embryo found inside a fossilised dinosaur egg sheds new light on the link between the behaviour of modern birds and dinosaurs, according to a new study. The embryo, dubbed ‘Baby Yingliang’, was discovered in the Late Cretaceous rocks of Ganzhou, southern China and belongs to a toothless theropod dinosaur, or oviraptorosaur. Among the most complete dinosaur …

Human waste contaminating urban water leads to ‘superbug’ spread – study

Contamination of urban lakes, rivers and surface water by human waste is creating pools of ‘superbugs’ in Low- and Middle-Income Countries (LMIC)  – but improving access to clean water, sanitation and sewerage infrastructure could help to protect people’s health, a new study reveals. Researchers studied bodies of water in urban and rural sites in three areas of Bangladesh – Mymensingh, Shariatpur …
