Discovering unique microbes made easy using the DOE Systems Biological Knowledge Base (KBase)

Science microbes It is the basis of life on earth. These microorganisms play a major role in everything from converting sunlight to molecules essential for life. It helps produce a lot of oxygen in our atmosphere. They even rotate feeders between air and Soil. Scientists are constantly finding interactions between Microbes, plants, animals, and other … Read more

Study identifies cause of excessive folding damage in human cerebral cortex

Newsswise – The outermost layer of the human brain or cerebral cortex, which has the characteristic dents and fissures (those distinct bumps and grooves), controls cognitive and executive function, from conscious thinking to speech to emotional control. Made up of more than 10 billion cells and 100 trillion plus connections, the cerebral cortex is a … Read more

New approach successfully tracks genetic variants back to genetic disorders

New release Thursday, January 5, 2023 The NIH study shows that the first genotype approach reveals new links to genetic conditions. NIH researchers have published an evaluation of 13 studies that took a genotype-first approach to patient care. This approach contrasts with the phenotype-first approach to clinical research, which begins with clinical findings. The genotype … Read more

Study links sugary drinks to hair loss in men

Androgenetic alopecia (MPHL) is a gradual, non-scarring form of hair loss. The age of onset of MPHL has been decreasing while the incidence is increasing. Several studies have demonstrated the relationship between Western-style dietary intake and MPHL. new Nutrients A study in the Journal of Medicine explored the relationship between consumption of sugar-sweetened beverages (SSB) … Read more
