It is estimated that 9 million people will die from cancer in 2015 and the latest statistics published by the World Health Organization (WHO) reports that this year alone more than 3.2 million lives have already been claimed. Also, in spite of advances in new drugs and biotechnology, cancer is undoubtedly a serious and potentially life-threatening disease and it is still one of the leading causes of death worldwide. Nano-based drug delivery system developed using ultrasound where ultrasound-activated cancer drug can be used to target cancerous tumours more effectively.
We are all well aware of the detrimental genetic consequences of inbreeding such as hemophilia, color blindness and many other genetic disorders especially amongst British and Russian monarchies, however the impact of marriage rules on genetic diversity has never been studied. Now a team of researchers led by Murray Cox, professor at Massey University, has examined the effects of arranged marriage on genetic diversity. This study is the first of its kind.
This age-old scientifically and philosophically challenging riddle: “Which came first, the chicken or the egg?” was first unshadowed by researchers at Sheffield and Warwick universities.
Fundamental facts about genetics, the roles of DNA in making the life on earth possible and answers to – What makes us “us”? What makes identical twins identical?
Writing is a system of human visual communication that represents language using signs and symbols. The human ability to write evolved from our ability to speak and since it is an evolutionary human invention, its underlying principle cannot be determined by the genetic code. A team of researchers from Johns Hopkins University have found that writing and talking are two independent systems that someone who can’t write a grammatically correct sentence may be able say it aloud flawlessly.

Astrophysicists at the University of Waterloo have created the most detailed 3D map of the universe that spans nearly two billion light years from side to side. It is the most complete picture of our cosmic neighborhood to date.
Engineers at Stanford University, California, have built a super-strong tiny robot that is capable of carrying things that weigh more than 100 times its own weight. The design of this tiny robot is inspired by geckos and the way it moves is copied from an inchworm.
Scientists have found dark matter interacting with other dark matter in an entirely new way other than just the force of gravity. This first potential signs of self-interacting dark matter suggests that dark matter may not be completely dark after all.
Two highly trained German shepherd dogs have uplifted the hope why dogs are man’s best friend with their outstanding sniffing ability to detect compounds linked to prostate cancer.
A combined team of researchers from the University of South Australia and Third Military Medical University in Chongqing, China, have discovered a drug that can mollify the advancement of cognitive deficits in Alzheimer’s Disease. The drug is known as Edaravone.
Scientists at Northwestern University have discovered a small RNA molecule known as miR-182 that has the ability to quash cancer-causing genes in mice with glioblastoma mulitforme (GBM), an incurable and deadly type of brain cancer.
