  • Research shows potential role of ‘junk DNA’ sequence in aging, cancer
    New Delhi: Findings from a new study led by researchers at Washington State University have solved a small piece of that puzzle, bringing scientists one step closer to solving the mystery of aging. A research team headed by Jiyue Zhu, a professor in the College of […]
  • Blushing plants reveal when fungi are growing in their roots, study finds
    New Delhi: Almost all crop plants form associations with a particular type of fungi- called arbuscular mycorrhiza fungi- in the soil, which greatly expand their root surface area. This mutually beneficial interaction boosts the plant’s ability to take up nutrients that are vital for growth. In […]
  • NASA Perseverance Mars rover to acquire first sample of Martian rock
    New Delhi: NASA is making final preparations for its Perseverance Mars rover to collect its first-ever sample of Martian rock, which future planned missions will transport to Earth.

  • Enzyme-based plastic recycling is better for environment: Study
    New Delhi: During a new study, researchers found that using enzymes as a more sustainable approach for recycling polyethylene terephthalate (PET), a common plastic in single-use beverage bottles, clothing, and food packaging that are becoming increasingly relevant in addressing the environmental challenge of plastic pollution. The […]
  • Safer high-energy density batteries can be made by preventing oxygen release
    New Delhi: To pave the way for more robust and safer high-energy-density batteries, during a recent study, researchers produced fresh insights about the release of oxygen in lithium-ion batteries. Next-generation batteries that store more energy are critical if societies are to achieve the UN’s Sustainable Development […]
  • Melting ice sheets can be monitored using solar radio signals
    New Delhi: A new method for seeing through ice sheets using radio signals from the sun that could enable cheap, low-power and widespread monitoring of ice sheet evolution and contribute to sea-level rise has been found by researchers at Stanford University. These findings have been published […]
  • World’s First 3D-Printed Steel Bridge Open In Amsterdam

  • ‘Neuroprosthesis’ restores speech to a paralysis man. Technology could lead to more natural communication for people who have suffered speech loss
    Researchers at UC San Francisco have successfully developed a “speech neuroprosthesis” that has enabled a man with severe paralysis to communicate in sentences, translating signals from his brain to the vocal tract directly into words that appear as text on a screen. The achievement, which […]
  • NASA, ESA form partnership to monitor climate change
    Washington: NASA and the European Space Agency (ESA) agreed to combine Earth observation data from multiple satellites into a single open-source format available to scientists, policymakers and the public in an attempt to help mitigate the impact of climate change, according to a joint statement […]
