Anhydrobiosis without trehalose in bdelloid rotifers

Anhydrobiosis without trehalose in bdelloid rotifers SUMMARY: There are many types of organisms that can dry out, rehydrate, and then go about their lives with no problems. Many of the larger ones use trehalose or sucrose as an antifreeze. Bdelloid rotifers (tiny microscopic animals) do not. This study looked at the carbohydrate content in desiccated… Continue reading Anhydrobiosis without trehalose in bdelloid rotifers

Electronic Tongues

A Versatile Electronic Tongue Based on Surface Plasmon Resonance Imaging and Cross-Reactive Sensor Arrays-A Mini-Review SUMMARY: Scientists are trying to create electronic tongues (eT) and noses (eN) that act similar to human tongues and noses. These artificial sensors are different from traditional sensors in that they don’t recognize individual molecules, instead, they recognize heterogeneous liquids… Continue reading Electronic Tongues

Biomass from microalgae

Biomass from microalgae: the potential of domestication towards sustainable biofactories SUMMARY: Microalgae could potentially be a renewable source of energy for people. Unfortunately, there are many issues right now with growing enough algae and keeping the process affordable (aka: it’s too expensive to grow and use algae commercially). The article is divided up into several… Continue reading Biomass from microalgae

Exposure to Radiofrequency Electromagnetic Fields From Wi-Fi

 Exposure to Radiofrequency Electromagnetic Fields From Wi-Fi in Australian Schools SUMMARY: People are often worried about children being exposed to WiFi radiofrequency electromagnetic fields in the classroom, especially when many children are simultaneously downloading or uploading something on their laptops as part of the lesson. This study went to 23 different schools in Australia and… Continue reading Exposure to Radiofrequency Electromagnetic Fields From Wi-Fi

Biological effects and mechanisms of shortwave radiation

Biological effects and mechanisms of shortwave radiation SUMMARY: This article review looked at the research that has been completed on the effects of shortwave radiation on the biological system. It’s been shown that shortwave electromagnetic field (SW-EMF) was successful at slowing down the growth of certain cancer cells, promote healing in skin, help with pain… Continue reading Biological effects and mechanisms of shortwave radiation

Hair coat properties of donkeys, mules and horses in a temperate climate

Hair coat properties of donkeys, mules and horses in a temperate climate SUMMARY: Donkeys and horses evolved to live in different climates. Donkeys are more adapted to the dry, hot areas while horses are able to live in colder climates. Researchers looked at the difference in seasonal hair growth of donkeys, horses, and mules to… Continue reading Hair coat properties of donkeys, mules and horses in a temperate climate
