New Method Lets Scientists Modify Individual Animal Cells

Individual animal cells have been quite difficult for scientists to isolate. Knocking out a single gene and then studying it separately has proven to be difficult in certain diseases, where scientists find it difficult to isolate genes. A new technique known as CRISPR-Cas9 has made it easier to analyze individual animal cells precisely.

London-Sized Glacier Breaks Off In Antarctica

An iceberg broke off from Antarctica last Sunday, researchers said. A massive iceberg, nearly the size of Greater London, separated from the Brunt Ice Shelf in Antarctica. Researchers first noticed significant fractures in the ice shelf a decade ago, but in recent years, there have been two significant separations.

Scientists Using AI To Predict Dementia

Researchers from two well-known research institutes, Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences (MPI CBS) and University of Leipzig Medical Center, have used the latest AI technology to detect rare forms of dementia. The conditions included Alzheimer’s disease and many other conditions that primarily affect language and activities of motor neurons.
