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 is a unique, fast and inexpensive gene editing tool which enables...
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 of blood to meet its immense non- stop requirement of oxygen...
New study in mice shows that getting enough sleep every night could provide protection from cardiovascular diseases Getting enough sleep is a general advice given by doctors as it is associated with maintaining good health. When someone gets adequate sleep,...
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 single egg are fertilized by a single sperm and they...
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 to procreate has intrigued researchers for very long. Scientists are trying...
Scientists have excavated the largest dinosaur fossil which would have been the largest terrestrial animal on our planet. A team of scientists from South Africa, UK and Brazil led by University of Witwatersrand have discovered a fossil of a new...
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 biggest factor which contributes to faster spread of a disease. When...
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 of an organ from residual tissue. Adult humans can successfully regenerate...
A crucial protein which is responsible for longevity has been identified for the first time in monkeys Plethora of research is happening in the field of ageing as it is essential to understand the genetic basis of ageing to be...
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 of Russian researchers, ancient roundworms (also called nematodes) which had solidified...
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 then divide into more cells, which further divide and subdivide until...
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 the cellular ‘messenger’ which codes for proteins and carries DNA’s instructions...
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 Neanderthal neanderthalensis) who evolved in Asia and Europe and coexisted for...
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 disease which is caused by abnormal changes or mutations in a...
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 the order of nucleotides in every specific DNA molecule. This exact...
A new breakthrough study has shown how we could restore our cell’s functionality and tackle the unwanted effects of ageing Ageing is a natural and an inevitable process because no living being is immune to it. Ageing is one of...
A groundbreaking study has discovered anovel way to rejuvenate inactive human senescent cells providing enormous potential for research on ageing and immense scope for improving lifespans A team led by Professor Lorna Harries at University of Exeter, UK1 has shown that...
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 can upload their minds to the computer thus having an actual...
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 cloned using a method called somatic cell nuclear transfer (SCNT), the technique which...
Study shows gene editing technique to protect one’s descendants from inheritable diseases A study published in Nature has shown for the first time that a human embryo can be corrected at a very early stage of embryonic development by a gene-editing (also...
