Greener Gasoline

After successfully converting plant waste into building blocks of greener gasoline in 2014, scientists at KU Leuven, Belgium have now developed ready-to-use recipe to produce cellulose gasoline for industrial applications. Cellulose, one of the main components of plant fibers, in sawdust, can be converted into hydrocarbon chains through a chemical process. According to Bert Sels from KU Leuven, the obtained hydrocarbon chains can be used as a gasoline additive to

Instagram Co-founders

To explore their curiosity and creativity again, Instagram co-founders Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger have confirmed to leave the firm. With more than a billion users, Instagram was founded in 2010 and purchased by social media giant Facebook in 2012 for $1 billion in cash and stock where the co-founders continued to run the service. In a statement, published on 24th September, 2018, Mr Systrom, chief executive appreciated his tenure of

Personalized Medicine

Researchers discussed the effectiveness of artificial intelligence in improving drug combination designing and personalized medicine in an auto-commentary issued in SLAS technology. Based on a study published in Science Translational Medicine, the auto-commentary discusses an AI-based technology platform called quadratic phenotypic optimization platform (QPOP). It successfully creates a new system by using small experimental data sets to develop new combinations of drugs that act against drug-resistant multiple myeloma. With growing

Sodium

Most of the batteries that are made up by using the rare lithium, which is mined from the mountains of South America. If this source is depletes, then the production of batteries could stagnate across the globe. On the other hand, Sodium is quire cheap in comparison and is available abundantly, which is considered as an alternative for using the lithium-ion batteries. The lithium-ion batteries are quite known to turn

Traffickers

Connections play an important role in the working of brain. To keep up cell associates, the external surface of a neuron, its film, should express specific proteins — world renowned hands that connect and welcome adjacent cells. What’s more, similar to a creepy long handshake, surface atoms can exceed their stay: A protein also known as traffickers which waits too long on the layer may trade off the associations, or
