Afterglow from neutron-star merger continues to brighten 22.1.2018 DNA: Top News
The afterglow from the neutron-star merger located about 138 million light years away, that sent gravitational waves rippling through the universe, has continued to brighten, scientists have found. New observations from NASA's orbiting Chandra X-ray Observatory indicate that the gamma ray burst unleashed by the collision first detected in August last year is more complex than scientists initially imagined. "Usually when we see a short gamma-ray burst, the jet emission generated gets bright for a short time as it smashes into the surrounding medium - then fades as the system stops injecting energy into the outflow," said Daryl Haggard, astrophysicist at McGill University in Canada. "This one is different; it's definitely not a simple, plain-Jane narrow jet," said Haggard. The data could be explained using more complicated models for the remnants of the neutron star merger. One possibility is that the merger launched a jet that shock-heated the surrounding gaseous debris, creating a hot 'cocoon' around the ...

Synthetic virus may lead to more effective smallpox vaccine 21.1.2018 General News
Scientists have created a synthetic horsepox virus that could lead to the development of a more effective vaccine against smallpox. The discovery demonstrates how techniques based on the use of synthetic DNA can be used to advance public health measures. Researchers from University of Alberta in Canada produced an infectious horsepox virus, which they synthetically reconstructed using a published genome sequence and DNA fragments manufactured entirely by chemical methods. The team went on to show that the synthetic horsepox virus could provide vaccine protection in a mouse model of poxvirus infection. "This application of synthetic DNA technology has the potential to revolutionise how we manufacture complex biologicals including recombinant viruses," said David Evans, professor at University of Alberta. "These methods advance the capacity to produce next- generation vaccines and offer special promise as a tool for constructing the complicated synthetic viruses that will

Italy probes Apple, Samsung over cuts to product life 19.1.2018 General News
Italy's antitrust authority today said it had launched a probe into tech giants Apple and Samsung for allegedly shortening the lives of their products so clients would buy newer models. The watchdog accused the companies of a "commercial policy aimed at exploiting the shortcomings of some (tech) components to reduce the performance of their products over time and persuade consumers to purchase new versions". It said it was also looking into complaints the pair failed to provide information on what consequences software updates pushed by the companies would have on products. The Italian probe follows an investigation launched this month into Apple in France over suspected "planned obsolescence" in some of its iPhone models. The US company was forced to admit in December that it intentionally slowed down older models of its iPhones over time, sparking concerns it was unfairly nudging consumers to upgrade. At the time, Apple denied it intentionally shortened the life on any

India put up 55 blocks on auction for oil, gas exploration 18.1.2018 General News
India today put on auction a record exploration acreage for prospecting of oil and gas, from 55 blocks, in the first bid round in eight years. Each block on offer has been carved out by prospective bidders under the open acreage licensing (OAL) of the new Hydrocarbon Exploration and Licensing Policy (HELP), Oil Minister Dharmendra Pradhan said launching the round. Blocks would be awarded to the company which offers highest share of oil and gas to the government as well as commits to do maximum exploration work by way of shooting 2D and 3D seismic survey and drilling exploration wells. "Last date of bidding is April 3," Pradhan said, adding that the blocks would be awarded by June/July. Increased exploration would lead to more oil and gas production, helping the world's third largest oil importer to cut import dependence. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has set a target of cutting oil import bill by 10 per cent to 67 per cent by 2022 and to half by 2030. India had in July ...

'First functioning human muscle grown from skin cells' 9.1.2018 General News
Researchers have grown the first functioning human skeletal muscle from induced pluripotent stem cells. The ability to start from cellular scratch using non- muscle tissue will allow scientists to grow far more muscle cells, researchers said. It will provide an easier path to genome editing and cellular therapies, and develop individually tailored models of rare muscle diseases for drug discovery and basic biology studies, they said. "Starting with pluripotent stem cells that are not muscle cells, but can become all existing cells in our body, allows us to grow an unlimited number of myogenic progenitor cells," said Nenad Bursac, professor at Duke University in the US. "These progenitor cells resemble adult muscle stem cells called 'satellite cells' that can theoretically grow an entire muscle starting from a single cell," said Bursac. The researchers started with human induced pluripotent stem cells. These are cells taken from adult non-muscle tissues, such as skin or ..
