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. If biotechnology and genetic engineering were disciplines promising immense potential...
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 recent 12 week trial comparing a normal carbohydrate-containing diet to the ketogenic diet in Alzheimer's Disease patients discovered that those who underwent a ketogenic diet increased their quality of life and activities of daily living outcomes, whilst also...
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...
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...
Scientists have for the first time created an injectable hydrogel which beforehand incorporates tissue-specific bioactive molecules via novel crosslinkers. The hydrogel described has strong potential for usage in tissue engineering Tissue engineering is the development of tissue and organ substitutes...
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...
Anorexia nervosa is an extreme eating disorder characterized with significant weight loss. Study on genetic origins of anorexia nervosa has revealed that metabolic differences play an equally important role along with psychological effects in the development of this disease....
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...
Protein expression refers to the synthesis of proteins within cells using information contained in the DNA or gene.  Proteins are responsible for all the biochemical reactions that take place within the cell. Hence, it makes it necessary to study protein function in...
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...
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...
Human Proteome Project (HPP) was launched in 2010 after successful completion of Human Genome Project (HGP) to identify, characterise and map human proteome (the entire set of proteins expressed by the human genome). On its tenth anniversary, HPP has...
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...
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 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...
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,...
Brown fat is said to be “good". It is known that it plays an important role in thermogenesis and maintains body temperature when exposed to cold conditions. An increase in amount of BAT and/or its activation has been shown...
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...
The complete human genome sequence of the two X chromosomes and autosomes from the female tissue derived cell line has been completed. This includes the 8% of the genome sequence that was missing in the original draft that was...
