New material to treat wounds can protect against resistant bacteria

Researchers have developed a new material that prevents infections in wounds – a specially designed hydrogel, that works against all types of bacteria, including antibiotic-resistant ones. The new material offers great hope for combating a growing global problem. Continue Reading at ScienceDaily.com Click Here. Press Release Distribution Service

A comprehensive map of the SARS-CoV-2 genome

Researchers have generated what they describe as the most complete gene annotation of the SARS-CoV-2 genome. In their study, they confirmed several protein-coding genes and found that a few others that had been suggested as genes do not code for any proteins. Continue Reading at ScienceDaily.com Click Here.

Hidden within African diamonds, a billion-plus years of deep-earth history

A team has come up with a way to solve two longstanding puzzles: the ages of individual fluid-bearing diamonds, and the chemistry of their parent material. The research has allowed them to sketch out geologic events going back more than a billion years — a potential breakthrough not only in the study of diamonds, but…

The next generation of hunters could look different

Integrating medical imaging and cancer biology with deep neural networks

Scientists have carried out a study investigating whether deep neural networks can represent associations between gene expression, histology, and CT-derived image features. They found that the network could not only reproduce previously reported associations but also identify new ones. Continue Reading at ScienceDaily.com Click Here. Press Release Distribution Service

As global climate shifts, forests’ futures may be caught in the wind

Forests’ ability to adapt to the disruptions wrought by climate change may depend, in part, on the eddies and swirls of global wind currents, suggests a new study. The study compared global wind patterns with previously published genetic data of nearly 100 tree and shrub species collected from forests around the world, finding significant correlations…

Artificial intelligence makes great microscopes better than ever

Collaboration between deep learning experts and microscopy experts leads to an significantly improved data-intensive light-field microscopy method by using AI and ground-truthing it with light-sheet microscopy. The result is the power of light-field microscopy available to biologists in near real time vs. days or weeks, AND the expansion of biologists’ ability to use this microscopy…

The legume family tree

The most comprehensive study of the family tree for legumes, the plant family that includes beans, soybeans, peanuts, and many other economically important crop plants, reveals a history of whole-genome duplications.

Sleep disorders tally $94.9 billion in health care costs each year

Sleep disorders are associated with significantly higher rates of health care utilization including more doctors visits and prescriptions, placing an additional $94.9 billion in costs each year to the U.S. Health care system.

How we retrieve our knowledge about the world

In order to find our way in the world, we classify it into concepts, such as ‘telephone’. Until now, it was unclear how the brain retrieves these when we only encounter the word and don’t perceive the objects directly. Scientists have now developed a model of how the brain processes abstract knowledge. They found that…

Supernovae twins open up new possibilities for precision cosmology

Cosmologists have found a way to double the accuracy of measuring distances to supernova explosions – one of their tried-and-true tools for studying the mysterious dark energy that is making the universe expand faster and faster.

18.5 million year old vine fossil identified as new species

An 18.5 million-year-old fossil found in Panama provides evidence of a new species and is the oldest reliable example of a climbing woody vine known as a liana from the soapberry family. The discovery sheds light on the evolution of climbing plants. Continue Reading at ScienceDaily.com Click Here. Press Release Distribution Service

Migratory songbirds climb to extreme altitudes during daytime

Great reed warblers normally migrate by night during its month-long migration from northern Europe to Sub-Saharan Africa. However, researchers have now discovered that during the few occasions when it continues to fly during daytime, it flies at extremely high altitudes (up to 6300 meters). One possible explanation for this unexpected and consistent behaviour could be…

Physicists describe new type of aurora

The famed northern and southern lights have been studied for millennia, but they still hold secrets. Physicists describe a new phenomenon they call ‘diffuse auroral erasers,’ in which patches of the background glow are blotted out, then suddenly intensify and reappear.

Shining new light on stepparent fairy-tale stereotype

Although the fairy tale of the wicked stepmother is a tale as old as time, the effects of blending children with their new stepfamilies may not be as grim as once thought. In fact, new research shows that stepchildren are not at a disadvantage compared to their peers from single-parent households and actually experience better…

Supersymmetry-inspired microlaser arrays pave way for powering chip-sized optical systems

Ring microlasers are eyed as potential light sources for photonic applications, but they first must be made more powerful. Combining multiple microlasers into an array solves only half of the problem, as this adds noisy ‘modes’ to the resulting laser light. Now, thanks to the math behind supersymmetry theory, engineers have achieved single-mode lasing from…

Repurposing tabletop sensors to search for dark matter

Researchers across the dark matter community that have begun to wonder if they are looking for the right type of dark matter. They have proposed a new way to look for the particles that might make up dark matter by repurposing existing tabletop sensor technology. Continue Reading at ScienceDaily.com Click Here.

Crohn’s disease patients have specific IgG antibodies to human bacterial flagellins

Last year, researchers used a mouse model that included immune-reactive T cells from patients with Crohn’s disease in a proof-of-principle demonstration that a flagellin-directed immunotherapy might provide similar benefits in patients. Now they have moved a step closer to possible clinical testing of this treatment, with a study that describes IgG antibodies in Crohn’s disease…
