These sequences, which proved to be part of a sophisticated immune system used by bacteria to fight viruses, give scientists an unprecedented opportunity to rewrite the code of life. Just a year ago, it was discovered that bacteria can be used to perform specific changes in the DNA of plants, animals, and people.
The molecular system known as Crispr has already made the production of genetically modified animals a much easier process. The first experimental results (more…)
The Future Control Project focuses primarily on a new mobile application that requires access to the personal data of social networks, bank accounts, e-mail, calendar, messages, calls, etc. The algorithm of the app will analyze the information and provide predictions for the future. Future Control is going to be a kind of reminder-assistant, something similar to what is offered by (more…)
Black holes in space, as we all know, ‘swallow’ anything found before them. All objects that fall into the trap of black holes get lost in the “eternal oblivion.” All? “No” replied Vyacheslav Dokuchaev, scientist of the Institute of Nuclear Research of the Russian Academy of Sciences.
Russian scientist developed a new theory, which states that some black holes may have a more complex internal structure, which lets photons, particles and even planets rotate in orbits inside their core without getting lost in their abyss. (more…)
The reason for this is that they want to find a way for the human brain to perform better in the today world, which is filled with information.
Data collection is easy. The hard part is to make sense of them. However, living in a deluge of data, people often cannot cope with complex databases. The researchers are working with sophisticated virtual reality tools in order to (more…)
From ancient Greece to quantum mechanics, or what relationship a Chinese room and a cat can have with the infinity. Six amazing and fun animated video clips explore respectively six interesting and most famous in history thought experiments.
