Scientists to Use Bionic Robo-fish to Remove Microplastics from the Ocean

Scientists are developing bionic robo-fish to clean microplastics from the waters. Tiny self-propelled robo-fish can swim around, grab on to free-floating microplastics, and repair themselves if they are harmed.

Scientists Discovers Way To Circumvent Need Of Plants For Biological Photosynthesis

Artificial photosynthesis has been developed by scientists as a means of producing food without the necessity for organic photosynthesis. The process turns to water, energy, and carbon dioxide into acetate through two electrocatalytic steps. Then, in the dark, organisms that produce food use acetate. The conversion of sunlight into food might be up to 18 … Read more

Aging Mystery: Crocodiles, Salamanders and Turtles Could Hold the Key Behind Aging and Longevity, Scientists Say

Aging involves the biological process of cell development and cell death throughout the span of an organism’s life. For centuries, aging has become a mystery as an imminent or unavoidable occurrence ruled by a so-called “cell clock” or “body clock” measured in years since the time of birth. Scientific advancement only allowed researchers to understand … Read more

AIDS Treatment: Scientists Develop Potential ‘One Time Treatment’ or Vaccine for HIV and AIDS

HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) and AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome) have been an ongoing worldwide pandemic for decades. The virus infection is known for its gradual yet long-term detrimental effects on the health of an infected person. HIV is transmitted through sexual intercourse and from syringes along with other medical equipment that has been exposed to … Read more

Health Risks from Western Wildfires Spread Across the United States: Scientists Warn

Wildfires in the western United States have become a commonplace over the years. In fact, the drought-stricken region has witnessed frequent and devastating wildland fires affecting California and other areas, especially during the summer season. Some of these fires were previously blamed for causing widespread air pollution, and for posing health threats due to toxic … Read more

Biodegradable, Plant-Based Covering That May Be Sprinkled on Meals Has Been Created by Scientists

Food waste and safety are driving forces behind the need for better food packaging. Existing films / coatings that address these issues, on the other hand, are usually plagued by poor release dynamics that demand large amounts of active substances. A Rutgers scientist has designed a biodegradable, plant-based covering that can be sprayed on foods … Read more

Scientists join forces in major offensive against bird flu

Scientists are joining forces in a new £ 1.5 million research consortium to tackle avian influenza. The consortium has received the money from the Biotechnology and Biosciences Research Council and Defra to develop new strategies to tackle future bird flu outbreaks. Outbreaks occur each year due to the UK’s position in the migratory flight path … Read more

Scientists find dingoes genetically different from domestic dogs after decoding genome | Wildlife

Dingoes are genetically distinct from domestic dogs and their evolution has been shaped by Australia’s environment, scientists who have fully decoded the dingo genome have said. An international team of researchers have analyzed the genetic makeup of a pure desert dingo called Sandy Maliki, finding that dingoes are an intermediary between wolves and domestic dog … Read more

Scientists Document a Case of Dangerous Bacteria in a Common Weed Found Throughout the United States

Scientists have discovered the first incidence of a dangerous phytoplasma disease in North America, which is known to threaten fruit, vegetable, and horticultural crops in South America and the Middle East. To make matters worse, scientists have discovered that the disease’s host is one of the most poisonous and fast-growing weeds found in a variety … Read more

Using geoengineering to slow global heating risks malaria rise, say scientists | Malaria

Geoengineering to prevent the worst impacts of climate breakdown could expose up to a billion more people to malaria, scientists have found. The report, published in Nature Communications, is the first assessment of how geoengineering the climate could affect the burden of infectious diseases. Geoengineering includes removing carbon dioxide from the sky so the atmosphere … Read more
