Scientists recreate Mona Lisa painting using live bacteria 15.8.2018 DNA: Opinion
Scientists have created an accurate millimetric replica of Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa, using approximately one million bacteria cells that were genetically engineered to respond to light. The researchers used light patterns to control the swimming speed of bacteria and direct them to form different shapes. Controlling bacteria in this way means it could be possible to use them as microbricks for building the next generation of microscopic devices. For example, they could be made to surround a larger object such as a machine part or a drug carrier, and then used as living propellers to transport it where it is needed, researchers said. Escherichia coli (E coli) bacteria are known to be fantastic swimmers. They can move a distance of ten times their length in a second. They have propellers that are powered by a motor, and they usually recharge this motor by a process that needs oxygen. Recently, scientists found a protein (proteorhodopsin) in ocean-dwelling bacteria that allows them to power their ...

Scientists develop 3D-printed device that might help treat spinal cord injuries 10.8.2018 DNA: Evolutions
Scientists have developed a 3D-printed device that could potentially help patients with long-term spinal cord injuries regain some function. A three-dimensional (3D) printed guide, made of silicone, serves as a platform for specialised cells that are then printed on top of it, said researchers at the University of Minnesota in the US. The guide would be surgically implanted into the injured area of the spinal cord where it would serve as a type of "bridge" between living nerve cells above and below the area of injury, according to the research published in the journal Advanced Functional Materials.

Scientists develop novel nanoparticles that can help detect cancer without biopsy 8.8.2018 DNA: Evolutions
Scientists have developed nanoparticle-based imaging technique that can detect various types of breast cancer, and other diseases, without the need for extracting tissue samples from the patient. The research, published in the journal Nature Nanotechnology, opens up a new avenue in minimally invasive disease diagnosis. "The use of nanoparticles for bio-imaging of disease is an exciting and fast-moving area of science," said Yiqing Lu from Macquarie University in Australia.

Celebrating MOM — Mother’s Own Milk 6.8.2018 DNA: Recent Columns
Each time I step into the office of my dear friend and batchmate in Delhi who deals with maternal and child health, a certain painting captures my attention. This is a reprint of the poignant 'Mother and Child' painting of Jamini Roy. This shows a child comfortably and happily holding on to the mother's breast. I recently came across another bold and beautiful painting by Raja Ravi Verma, 'The Suckling Child' promoting breastfeeding. There are similar paintings by artists like Mary Cassatt (1906) and Jean Laurent Mosnier (1770). Through such paintings and messaging, we could emphasise that breasts are for breastfeeding, and not mere sex objects. Research shows that immediate breastfeeding after birth and exclusive breastfeeding for six months can save up to 1,20,000 babies in India, reducing the six lakh neonatal deaths by 20%! Breast milk is a miracle drink that nature readies for every baby even before it is born. It has water, proteins, lactose, essential fatty acids, breast-specific macrophages, ...

'Future smartphone circuits may be printed like newspapers' 20.7.2018 DNA: Evolutions
A new manufacturing technique uses a process similar to newspaper printing to form smoother and more flexible metals for making ultrafast electronic devices, scientists say. The low-cost process, developed by researchers at Purdue University in the US, combines tools already used in industry for manufacturing metals on a large scale. However, it uses the speed and precision of roll-to-roll newspaper printing to remove a couple of fabrication barriers in making electronics faster than they are today, according to the research published in the journal Nano Letters.

Rajasthan government bats for nanotechnology to better farming sector 2.7.2018 DNA: Popular News
With the aim to reduce use of chemical in farming and double the income of farmers by increasing production and reducing expenditure, Rajasthan agriculture department is soon going to introduce nanotechnology based products in farming. Agriculture minister Prabhu Lal Saini has instructed the state agriculture experts to test the products before giving it to farmers at large. “A private company has offered nanotechnology based products to make crops pestfree and to increase production by reducing the use of fertilizers,” Saini told DNA. “This Gujrat based company, last week, has given a presentation of its products. I have instructed the agriculture university to use these products in farms at agriculture research centres and centres of excellence on an experimental basis to know the results,” he added. The agriculture minister is of the view that using nanotechnology based products will certainly help to reduce expenditure on pesticides and fertilizers. In his opinion, it will also help in maintaining ...

Artificial Intelligence: Where India stands 15.6.2018 Rediff: Columns
A culture of science and innovation must be embedded in society wherein people not only use new technology but understand it as well. Without this, obscurantism and blind faith can sit side by side with digital technology and, in fact, use the same technology to reinforce their hold on people, says Shram Saran.
