Ordinary wearables can flag signs of diabetes

Ordinary wearables can flag signs of diabetes Upbeat published an interview with Cardiogram co-founders Johnson Hsieh (JH) and Brandon Ballinger (BB). They reveal a new study about heart rate sensor. Johnson Hsieh said A new N=14,011 study shows heart rate sensors you’re wearing already—like the Apple Watch, Android Wear, Garmin, or Fitbits—can detect …

Electronic skin can display a heartbeat on your hand

Electronic skin can display a heartbeat on your hand

Electronic skins might not only detect health troubles in the near future, but display them for the world to see. University of Tokyo researchers have developed an e-skin that can measure vital signs like your heartbeat and display them in real time on a skin display. The design blends a breathable nanomesh electrode and …

Stem cell vaccine immunizes lab mice against multiple cancers

Stem cell vaccine immunizes lab mice against multiple cancers

Stanford University researchers report that injecting mice with inactivated induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) launched a strong immune response against breast, lung, and skin cancers. The vaccine also prevented relapses in animals that had tumors removed. The work appears in the journal Cell Stem Cell on Feb. 15. iPSCs are …

National Institute of Genetics: A new function of rDNAs

National Institute of Genetics: A new function of rDNA

A new function of rDNAs to compact bacterial chromosome Condensins load onto DNA to organize chromosome. Smc-ScpAB clearly loads onto the parS sites bound by Spo0J, but other loading sites(s) must operate independently of parS. In this study, we asked where and how Smc-ScpAB normally selects its loading site. Our results suggest that …

Eating with the eyes' is hard-wired in the brain

Have you ever wondered why just seeing food can make your mouth start to water? By visualizing neuronal activity in specific areas of the zebrafish brain, scientists at the National Institute of Genetics (NIG) in Japan have revealed a direct link between visual perception of food and feeding motivation. The …

Sokendai News: Phoenicid Meteor Shower from Dead Comet Arises again after 58 Years

Phoenicid Meteor Shower from Dead Comet Arises again after 58 Years

Phoenicid Meteor Shower from Dead Comet Arises again Japanese astronomers observed the elusive “Phoenicid meteor shower” and have determined that it was spawned by the now vanished Comet Blanpain. They also found that Comet Blanpain was active, though only weakly, in the early 20th Century. This is the first time …
