New technique developed to check video forgeries

Everyone loves to watch a good video online, but the format is often misused by digital cheats. This is making ‘copy-paste’ forgery a menace. Indian scientists have developed a set of techniques to detect such frauds.

Genetic engineering mechanism visualized

Researchers at Kanazawa University and the University of Tokyo report in Nature Communications the visualization of the dynamics of 'molecular scissors' — the main mechanism of the CRISPR-Cas9 genetic-engineering technique.

SAGEdb South Asian Genomes and Exomes Database

SAGE is a comprehensive repertoire of genome and exome information from South Asians. We have integrated 6 datasets encompassing 1213 human genome and exome data to create a compendium of 154 million genetic variants.

Metro Rail System Cause the Artificial Magnetic Disturbance

An obvious magnetic disturbance has been repeatedly observed by magnetometers located outside of urban areas in Yangmingshan National Park and has affected the monitoring of volcanic activity in the northern region of Taiwan.

UCI stem cell therapy attacks cancer by targeting unique tissue stiffness

A stem cell-based method created by University of California, Irvine scientists can selectively target and kill cancerous tissue while preventing some of the toxic side effects of chemotherapy by treating the disease in a more localized way.
