As Udhampur district is becoming more urbanised, the groundwater resources may become unsustainable and contaminated. Researchers from the University of Kashmir draw a baseline for monitoring groundwater quality.
LIGO can detect gravitational waves caused by celestial events millions of kilometres away. But quakes caused by events a few kilometres under the earth can mess up the results. Read on to see how scientists overcame the problem.
Rajabrata Bhuyan from the Banasthali Vidyapith and Angshuman Bagchi from the University of Kalyani have identified circular non-coding RNAs involved in colorectal cancers. This type of RNAs may one day become a part of cancer diagnostics and perhaps will even play a role in therapeutics.
Breeding better varieties using conventional seed selection is not possible in jasmine, propagated vegitatively. So researchers in IIT Kharagpur used gamma irradiation on jasmine cuttings to induce mutations that enhance the fragrance of jasmine. Read on for details.
Angamba Potshangbam and team from Manipur University queried their database of medicinal plants to search for alternatives to donezepil, used for Alzheimer’s. Using molecular docking and in vitro studies they identified two plants with potential for ameliorating Alzheimer’s disease.
In wound healing, the epithelial cells migrate to close the wound. Researchers from TIFR Hyderabad find that the leader cells in this mass migration emerge depending on density, and the leadership positions shift dynamically, depending on the contours of the wound.
Researchers from the Dibrugarh University and the Geological Survey of India dig up the past history of the Gondwana sandstones in Arunachal Pradesh. They enquire into the conditions when these sandstones were deposited.
Diagnosing malaria is difficult because there are different Plasmodium species producing wide variations in symptoms. And blood smear test often gives false negatives. Researchers from three colleges in Bikaner have now come up with a new faster and more accurate, diagnostic tool.
Priming seeds with 2-oxoglutarate, a intermediate between carbohydrate and protein metabolic pathways, alleviate the symptoms of arsenic toxicity and reduces accumulation of arsenic in plants. Researchers from Allahabad provide evidence.
