Scientists Discover and Fix Genetic Risk Factor of Alzheimer’s Disease

Brain - Genetic Risk Factor of Alzheimer's Disease

Scientists discover how to eliminate the primary genetic risk factor of Alzheimer’s disease –  Apolipoprotein E.  They examined the effect of apolipoprotein E on human brain cells for the first time.  To fix this faulty gene, they applied previously built compounds – “structure correctors”. Researchers at Gladstone Institutes (housed at San Francisco General Hospital) show, for ...

High Energy Collisions Of Lead Ions Produce Quark-Gluon Plasma

Quark-Gluon Plasma created in high energy collision

Physicists collide lead ions to create a Quark-Gluon Plasma at the Large Hadron Collider.  The collision creates high-energy partons, which further split into two or more partons. It gives new insights of color coherence and other properties of interactions of partons in the Quark-Gluon Plasma.  A team of researchers collides lead ions to produce a ...

New Machine Learning Model Can Prevent Deadly Infections

CDI infection

Researchers develop a new machine learning model to prevent symptomatic infection before it starts.  The model is based on L2 regularized logistic regression method.  The algorithm made accurate prediction 5 days before diagnostic samples were taken. Around 29,000 U.S citizen die every year due to symptomatic infection called Clostridium difficile infection (CDI). It’s present in the air, soil, ...

Is Dark Matter Formed By Cosmic Instability?

Dark Matter Formed By Cosmic Instability

A new research shows that the instability in Higgs field could be a sign of dark matter.  The dark matter contains numerous black holes that formed at the initial stage of the universe because of unstable Higgs’ fluctuations. As per our current understanding, the universe has been changing since Big Bang (13.7 billion years ago), and ...
