Virus-infected bacteria could provide help in the fight against climate change

Virus-infected bacteria could provide help in the fight against climate change  – Science Daily
“We have recently discovered that while (bacteria infected with viruses) are in the process of dying, microbes can produce new viruses that then go to attack their original invader. This is a form of resistance we had not observed before,” said Buchan.This type of competitive interaction, Buchan said, is important for stabilizing the size of microbial populations in marine systems. This balance may be crucial for biogeochemical processes, including many related to climate change. | Get the Full Story

After More than 10 Years, The Quest for Room Temp Magnet Reversal is Over

Magnetization reversal achieved at room temperature using only an electric field- Phys.org
Scientists at Tokyo Institute of Technology have achieved magnetization reversal in cobalt-substituted bismuth ferrite by applying an electric field. Researchers have sought such a technique for over a decade in order to make new types of low-power-consumption magnetic memory devices. | Get the Full Story

Decentralizing-Empowering Nebulas Could Save Blockchain

Nebulas could be the Future of Improving The Efficiency of Blockchain Upgrades  – the-blockchain
Pertaining to the issue of system upgrades, Nebulas believes that “the decision makers of a blockchain upgrade should not be centralized. It belongs to every participant in the community. Every token user of Nebulas has the right to participate in and choose the future direction of Nebulas.”
One of the many new features that Nebulas NOVA will include is the Nebulas Blockchain Runtime Environment (NBRE) and is the first version of Nebulas Force as stated in Nebulas’ whitepaper. NBRE is the execution environment for the Nebulas core protocols and algorithms; based on the JIT (Just In Time) LLVM (Low Level Virtual Machine) compiler, making it possible to manage, execute and submit LLVM Intermediate Representation (IR) to the Nebulas blockchain. | Get the Full Story

Quantum Leaping Your Way Thanks to Quantum of Light

In the blink of an eye: Team uses quantum of light to create new quantum simulator  – Science Daily
Imagine being stuck inside a maze and wanting to find your way out. How would you proceed? The answer is trial and error. This is how traditional computers with classical algorithms operate to find the solution to a complex problem. Now consider this: What if, by magic, you were able to clone yourself into multiple versions so that you were able to go through all the various paths at the same time? You’d find the exit almost instantly. | Get the Full Story

Your Glowing Pea Could End Needle Biopsies

Fluorescing urine signals organ transplant rejection, could replace needle biopsies – Science Daily
A new screening method using sensor particles and a urine test could catch rejection much earlier, more comprehensively, and without a biopsy needle.
When the body’s immune system has just begun attacking cells of a transplanted organ, the new method’s particles send a fluorescent signal into the urine. In a new study, researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology and Emory University validated the method in a mouse model, and they have engineered the sensor with highly biocompatible components, which could make the path to potential future trials easier. | Get the Full Story

How You Smell Things Could Determine How Long You Live

The smelling of food controls cellular recycling and affects life expectancy – Science Daily
The smell of food induces a variety of physiological processes in our body. Thus, the production of saliva and digestive enzymes is stimulated before the actual food intake in order to prepare the gastrointestinal tract for the upcoming digestive process. In a healthy organism, this coordination depends on a dynamic balance between formation and degradation of proteins (proteostasis). This plays an important role for the recycling of cells and during the aging process. | Get the Full Story

Solar Winds Teaching Scientists to Make New Chemical Factory

Ingredients for water could be made on surface of moon, a chemical factory  – Science Daily
Using a computer program, scientists simulated the chemistry that unfolds when the solar wind pelts the Moon’s surface. As the Sun streams protons to the Moon, they found, those particles interact with electrons in the lunar surface, making hydrogen (H) atoms. These atoms then migrate through the surface and latch onto the abundant oxygen (O) atoms bound in the silica (SiO2) and other oxygen-bearing molecules that make up the lunar soil, or regolith. Together, hydrogen and oxygen make the molecule hydroxyl (OH), a component of water, or H2O | Get the Full Story
