Novel plant-based polio vaccine developed

Genes that carry information to produce VLPs are infiltrated into the plant tissues. The host plant then reproduces large quantities of them using its own protein expression mechanisms, researchers said.

Neutron beams, X-rays reveal more about T. rex relative

The Bisti Beast species lived about 10 million years before T. rex. Scientists have said it represents one of the early tyrannosaurs that had many of the advanced features, including big-headed, bone-crushing characteristics and small forelimbs, that were integral for the survival of T. rex.

TRAPPIST-1 twice as old as our solar system: Study

In a new study, researchers found that the TRAPPIST-1 star is quite old: between 5.4 and 9.8 billion years. This is up to twice as old as our own solar system, which formed some 4.5 billion years ago. At the time of its discovery earlier this year,scientists believed the TRAPPIST-1 system had to be at least 500 million years old.

New technique to make heat pass through plastic

It used a chemical process to expand and straighten the molecule chains, giving heat energy a more direct route through the material. To accomplish this, the researchers first dissolved a typical polymer, or plastic in water, then added electrolytes to the solution to raise its pH, making it alkaline.

Scientists find what lies beneath Neptune’s surface

Running large-scale computer simulations of conditions of the thick layer between the Neptune’s atmosphere and core, known as the mantle, researchers have helped solve the mystery of what lies beneath the most distant planet in our solar system.

Record fastest light pulse ever developed

The pulses demonstrated by the group led by Professor Zenghu Chang are not just shorter in duration, but also in wavelength. The new light reaches an important spectral region, the so called “water window,” where carbon atoms absorb strongly but water does not.

Explorers of the Library of Nature

When society makes demands of scientists, we are obliged to listen because society provides the resources that support our exploration. But we should be careful to explain that there is no map, that following compasses takes time, that dead ends are common.

Now paper-based battery powered by your saliva

Scientists have developed a new high-performance, paper-based battery powered by saliva that can be used in extreme conditions where normal batteries do not function. Researchers from Binghamton University in the US created the battery by building microbial fuel cells with inactive, freeze-dried cells.

Four Earth-sized planets found orbiting Sun-like star

Four Earth-sized planets have been discovered orbiting the nearest Sun-like star, which is about 12 light years away and visible to the naked eye, scientists said. Two of the planets are super-Earths located in the habitable zone of the star, tau Ceti.

New graphene electronic tattoos can be applied with water

During fabrication, the graphene/PMMA bilayer is transferred to a piece of ordinary tattoo paper, and the bilayer is then carved into different patterns of serpentine ribbons to make different types of sensors.

Partial lunar eclipse on August 7 night, to be visible in India

A partial lunar eclipse will take place on August 7 night and will be visible from across the country. The next lunar eclipse will be on January 31, 2018 and it will be total. It will also be visible from all parts of the Indian sub-continent.

Some scientists to take to the streets for the ‘cause of science’, others to stay away

Pune is home to several institutions working under the Department of Science and Technology (DST), Department of Biotechnology (DBT), Ministry of Earth Sciences (MoES), Ministry of Defence (MoD), and a sizeable number of colleges involved in research work.

Researchers develop eyeglasses activated by blinking

The sensor, developed at Chongqing University and the National Center for Nanoscience and Technology in China, is based on a triboelectric nanogenerator (TENG), which is a device that generates an electrostatic charge in response to movement. The sensor connects to a pair of eyeglass frames.

Robotic ankle support to help stroke patients walk properly

Scientists have developed new lightweight, soft robotic ankle-assisting exosuit that may help stroke patients walk properly. In about 80 per cent of patients post-stroke, it is typical that one limb loses its ability to function normally -a clinical phenomenon called hemiparesis.
