New tech developed to generate green hydrogen from biomass

Most of the hydrogen presently comes from fossil fuels through a process called the steam methane reforming route

Researchers develop helix-hairpin miniproteins for inhibiting SARS-CoV-2 infection

The artificial peptides or miniproteins can block not only the entry of viruses like SARS-CoV-2 into human cells but also have the potential to clump virions

Study could help better management of Alzheimer’s patients

The improved algorithm named ReAl-LiFE could also predict how a human test subject would behave or carry out a specific task

How did COVID-19 spread during short conversations?

The simulations from a recent research showed that the risk of getting infected was higher when one person acted as a passive listener than when they engaged in a two-way conversation

Study finds Asthma drug can help fight COVID

Indian Institute of Science (IISc) team found that a drug used to treat Asthma and allergies can bind to and block a crucial protein produced by the virus SARS-CoV-2 and reduce viral replication in human immune cells

Microplastics detected in fish samples from Cauvery

Using a technique called Raman spectroscopy, researchers detected microplastics, the minute pieces of plastic often invisible to the naked eye and some toxic chemicals.

Mathematical model to predict COVID-19 vaccine efficacy

The researchers began by analysing over 80 different neutralising antibodies reported to be generated after vaccination against the surface spike protein of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19

IISc to set up 800-bed hospital in Bengaluru, receives Rs 425...

The ground-breaking is planned for June 2022 and the hospital will be operational by the end of 2024

Scientists develop new technology platform to detect SARS-CoV-2

A highlight of the study is that it presents an entirely new strategy to target a unique, unconventional nucleic acid structure specific to the SARS-CoV-2 sequence using small molecules

Study to help manage attention disorders

A team of researchers led by Prof. Sridharan Devarajan, an Associate Professor at the Centre for Neuroscience & Associate faculty in Computer Science and Automation, Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bangalore, is seeking to find answers to these questions and develop therapies for treating attention disorders
