Artificial intelligence predicted where new drugs will be able to get close to RNA and DNA
2022-01-14 18:18 The iMolecule scientific group from Skoltech has developed a solution that, based on data on the structure of RNA and DNA, predicts the sites of these molecules suitable for interaction with the intended medicinal substances. Knowing these so-called binding sites, it is possible to more effectively and purposefully find formulas for new drugs, including antiviral ones. The solution uses artificial intellige...
Sloan Kettering Institute Scientists retool CAR T cells to serve as ‘micropharmacies’ for cancer drugs
2022-01-07 18:19 Immunotherapies called chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cells use genetically engineered versions of a patient’s own immune cells to fight cancer. These treatments have energized cancer care, especially for people with certain types of blood cancers. Now, scientists at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center’s Sloan Kettering Institute (SKI) have developed new CAR T cells tha...
Anthropologists have revealed the secret of energy efficiency of ancient people
2022-01-07 10:52 The researchers analyzed the balance of energy expenditure and consumption in primates and modern hunter-gatherers. It turned out that despite the use of sophisticated technologies and more economical means of transportation, people spend almost as much energy on finding or producing food as they receive - like our closest relatives, but they can cope with it in less time. Such a strategy could indirectly c...

The world's largest wind farm gave the first energy
2021-12-30 19:58 When fully operational, Hornsea 2’s 165 8 MW Siemens Gamesa wind turbines will be capable of generating 1.32 GW of clean electricity – taking the title of ‘world’s largest operating offshore wind farm’ from its sibling project Hornsea 1. Together, the two projects will be capable of providing enough power for well over 2.3 million homes. First power on Hornsea 2, whi...
Biologists have examined the work of proteins that "repair" DNA in a living cell
2021-12-29 19:30 Machine learning allowed Spanish scientists to analyze in detail micrographs of DNA “repair” in living cells. Researchers have discovered several new proteins involved in this process, and have demonstrated the important role that proteins play actively leaving the site of injury. The DNA of living cells is constantly damaged by background radiation, ultraviolet radiation, chemicals and simply ...
How the brain connects smells with places and transports us through time and space
2021-12-28 17:52 The smell is able to transport us through time and space. It could be the sweet scent of jasmine or the scent of fresh grass. Once you smell a familiar scent, you can suddenly return to the home of your childhood or under the scorching sun on the distant seashore. This connection between smells and places seems to be a deeply ingrained aspect of human consciousness. But how are they connected in the brain? ...
