NASA is studying how tiny Sea creatures impact our planet’s climate

NASA is conducting a research on the world’s largest phytoplankton bloom in the North Atlantic to ascertain how the tiny sea creatures influence the climate in every season on Earth. In its final deployment, the North Atlantic Aerosols and Marine Ecosystems Study mission (NAAMES) will lay complete emphasis in studying how phytoplanktons give rise to small organic particles that escape the ocean and end up in the atmosphere, eventually influencing clouds […]

April 11, 2018

Scientists neutralize Alzheimer’s gene for the first time

In a breakthrough, California-based scientists have successfully ascertained the protein associated with the high-risk apoE4 gene, an additional copy of which can increase the chances of developing Alzheimer’s by 12-folds. Owing to this development, the researchers have triumphantly managed to prevent the damage caused to human neurons cells. Notably, 1-in 3 people over 65 years have tendency to develop dementia, and two-thirds of people with dementia are women.

IIT Ropar develops ‘quick, non-contact’ method for detecting breast cancer

In what comes as a breakthrough, researchers at IIT Ropar claim to have developed a “painless, quick and no-contact method” for early detection of the onset of breast cancer in women. The proposed technique, Infrared Thermography (IRT), will reportedly make use of infrared emissions emerging from the breast to detect the hidden tumours at a very early stage with predefined thermal stimulus on the area under observation.
