In two or three years, I think that transmission cryogenic electron microscopy (cryo-EM) will become the most powerful tool for deciphering the structures of macromolecules. These structures are crucial for understanding biochemical mechanisms and drug development, and methods for solving them more efficiently can speed up such work.
In cryo-EM, quickly freezing biological specimens in liquid nitrogen helps to preserve the molecules’ water content and reduces damage from the high-energy electrons used for imaging. But specimen preparation is a major bottleneck: if you don’t have a good specimen, you have nothing to image. …

In building the world’s first airplane at the dawn of the 20th century, the Wright Brothers took inspiration from the “insightful” movements of birds. They observed and reverse-engineered aspects of the wing in nature, which in turn helped them make important discoveries about aerodynamics and propulsion.
Similarly, to build machines that think, why not seek inspiration from the three pounds of matter that operates between our ears? Geoffrey Hinton, a pioneer of artificial intelligence and winner…

(BOSTON) — Handheld electrochemical sensors are part of the daily routine for millions of people with diabetes around the globe who monitor their blood sugar levels with electric glucometers. While such sensors have revolutionized at-home medical testing for diabetics, they have not yet been successfully applied to diagnosing other conditions. Sensors like glucometers detect glucose in blood based on the activity of an enzyme, and there are only a limited number of enzymes that can be used to sense biomarkers of human disease. An alternative detection strategy based on binding events between antibodies and their molecular targets…
I was doing a random research on what the actual innovation requires. Does it require to be completely novel? Does it require to possess the complexity? Innovations are inspired from somewhere from previous principles or inventions or innovations, they are not completely novel. Sorry if there are few exceptions.
I do not know how much truth there is. However I had read somewhere that NASA had spent millions to invent a pen which can write under microgravity in space whereas Soviet made a pencil. This justifies that innovations require simplicity. I am not a long term researcher on it but I…
I don’t see the same eyes
I had seen for the first time
These are not the eyes
that gave me the first impression
I do not hear the same voice
that paused me for a moment
It is not the same beauty again
I have faced these eyes, voice and beauty everywhere
The beauty is no more attracting me
The beauty is no more making me crazy
You are everyone else
Baby, I missed you
You are no more you
She is just 50 kg to carry her broken heart
and the broken heart is heavy
Even there is no choice for transplantation
only the thing she can do is to stitch it
It is not that she did not try to stitch it
She tried but stitches made more holes
but could not join the broken heart
So she thought for an option
to increase her weight
Yes she just thought but did not dare
Last option she chose is just to carry it
and move on like she was carrying this heavy heart easily
Yes she is still carrying
She knows it is same broken heart
but she can feel its lightness
may be she became a little bit stronger
Fact is-broken heart is still heavy
but she learned to carry it easily

In every tick tock of time, infants are born and more scientific inventions and innovations are happening in most of the corners but unfortunately not in every corners. Developing countries are busy in prioritizing development drafts but still the developing countries have remained developing with only few exceptions.
Let’s assume the race between science, time and people to elaborate it. Neither time, a never stopping parameter is going to wait nor anyone has the strength to block the tick tock of a clock. And there is science which is never constant and always searching for the way to…
