3D Maps Reveal Genomic Origami, responsible for cancer, other diseases

Human genomes and their folding patterns have been know for years with hidden switches that can turn on and cause deadly diseases including cancer. Now with the help of a three-dimensional (3D) map, scientists revealed a structural basis for gene regulation, sort of “genomic origami” that allows the same genome to produce different types of cells. Using a technology called ...

Indian-Origin Scientist Makes Direct Brain-to-Brain Connectivity Possible Again

An Indian-origin scientist and his team have achieved to successfully replicate a direct brain-to-brain connection between multiple pairs of people as part of a scientific study on direct transmission of signals or telepathy following the team’s first break through reported in a demonstration last year. Led by scientist Rajesh Rao, the study involved six people and the team was able to ...
