In their most recent study, the research team focused on patterns of genetic coding used by viruses which infect a single or narrow range of hosts compared to those which infect a multiple or broad range of hosts.
Recreating the “feel” of an object as participants move their fingers enables them to use their ingrained sensing strategies.
The researchers published their findings in the scientific journal PNAS – Proceeding of the National Academy of Sciences.
National Geographic named University of Haifa Prof. Aviad Scheinin as one of its 15 international “Emerging Explorers” for 2021.
The researchers conducted two different studies that use robotic facial expressions that are able to depict human emotions, which are then presented on drones.
The mechanism through which the protein SIRT6 acts as a ‘fountain of youth’ allows old mice to conduct the same level of vigorous activity as their young counterparts, without becoming frail.
“In the present study, we discovered a mechanism that developed in the course of evolution to prevent false alarms, meaning a situation in which the body’s immune response spirals out of control.”
In new groundbreaking research, researchers at the Hebrew University have introduced molecular bio-sensors inside potatoes that allow for real-time monitoring of stress signals within the plants.
Findings could guide the development of new therapeutics to delay or even halt the progression of neurodegenerative diseases.
“We’ve learned how to convert the information of interest from the form of light waves to ultrasonic, surface acoustic waves, and then back to optics.”
Cheaper batteries could make solar, wind and other renewable sources – that are not always present and require storage for reliable production – a more reliable option for energy production.
Single-cell RNA sequencing helps to catalog the dozens of cell types present in a stony coral, including its elusive immune cells.
