A novel mechanism to explain the different unrelated symptoms of COVID-19 has come to light by exploiting the second fastest Supercomputer in the world known as Summit supercomputer at Oak Ridge National Lab...
Coronaviruses are not new; these are as old as anything in the world and are known to cause common cold among humans for ages. However, its latest variant, the ‘SARS-CoV-2’ currently in news for causing COVID-19 pandemic...
Case study reports first rare semi-identical twins in humans to be identified during pregnancy and only second ever known till now Identical twins (monozygotic) are conceived when cells from...
A new geometrical shape has been discovered which enables three-dimensional packing of epithelial cells when making curved tissues and organs. Every living organism begins as a single cell, which...
Deletion of Phf21b gene is known to be associated with cancer and depression. New research now indicates that timely expression of this gene plays a key role in neural stem cell differentiation and brain development 
The ambitious mission of replicating the human brain onto a computer and achieving immortality. Multiple research shows that we could well imagine a future where infinite number of humans...
Humans would not have existed without viruses because viral protein plays a key role in the development of human embryo. However, at times, they pose existential threats in the form of diseases as in the case of...
This first case of genetic manipulation in a lizard has created a model organism that could help gain further understanding of reptile evolution and development CRISPR-Cas9 or simply CRISPR...
‘Several questions about origin of life have been answered, but much remains to be studied’’ said Stanley Miller and Harold Urey way back in 1959 after reporting laboratory synthesis of amino acids in primitive earth conditions. Many...
‘’The central dogma of molecular biology deals with the detailed residue-by-residue transfer of sequential information from DNA to protein via RNA. It states that such information is unidirectional from DNA to protein and cannot be transferred from...
Scientists have demonstrated for the first time a multiple-person ‘brain-to-brain’ interface where three persons collaborated to complete a task via direct ‘brain-to-brain’ communication. This interface called BrainNet paves way for direct collaboration between brains for solving a problem.
Study shows promise for treating genetic disease in a mammal during foetal development in the first three months of a pregnancy A genetic disorder is a condition or a...
A first study has shown how an animal society actively reorganizes itself to reduce the spread of disease. Generally speaking, high population density in a geographical region is the...
In a breakthrough study, first primates have been successfully cloned using the same technique used to clone the first mammal Dolly the sheep. The first ever primates have been...
Gingko trees lives for thousands years by evolving compensatory mechanisms to maintain a balance between growth and ageing. Ginkgo biloba, a deciduous gymnosperm tree native to China is known...
Success in mapping the complete neural network of male and female worms is an important progress towards understanding function of the nervous system. Our nervous system is an intricate...
Unlocking the genetic information of a fern could provide us potential solutions to multiple issues faced by our planet today. In genome sequencing, DNA sequencing is done to determine...
Adult frogs have been shown for the first time to regrow amputated legs marking it as a breakthrough for organ regeneration. Regeneration means re-growing a damaged or missing part...
For the first time dormant multicellular organisms’ nematodes were revived after being buried in permafrost deposits for thousands of years. In quite an interesting discovery made by a team...
Scientists have revived pigs brain four hours after its death and kept alive outside the body for several hours Of all organs, brain is most susceptible to continuous supply...
Researchers have adapted living cells and created novel living machines. Called xenobots, these are not a new species of animals but pure artefacts, designed to serve human needs in future.
Study shows for the first time healthy mouse offspring born from same sex parents – in this case mothers. The biological aspect of why mammals need two opposite genders...
The Human Genome Project revealed that ~1-2% of our genome makes functional proteins while the role of the remaining 98-99% remains enigmatic. Researchers have tried to uncover the mysteries surrounding the same and this article throws light...
New study shows that it might be possible to transfer memory between organisms by transferring RNA from a trained organism into an untrained one RNA or ribonucleic acid is...
Studying the Neanderthal brain can reveal genetic modifications which caused Neanderthals to face extinction while made us humans as a unique long-surviving species Neanderthals were a human species (called...
