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, ...
