Microalgae as natural detector of environmental safety

An international group of toxicologists, including experts from the Far Eastern Federal University (FEFU), report that unicellular microalgae, the most common microorganisms on Earth and an important part of the food chain ...

Making artificial blood for transfusions

Blood transfusions can save the lives of patients who have suffered major blood loss, but hospitals don't always have enough or the right type on hand. In search of a solution, researchers have developed a promising substitute ...

Bakar Fellow: Aiding cells' strategy to survive

As any human biology text will tell you, enzymes in the stomach and intestine break down proteins that are locked into almost every bite we eat. The proteins' amino acid building blocks are then transported to the body's ...

Scientists obtain graphene with high resistance to ozonation

A group of scientists from the National Research Nuclear University MEPhI (Russia) and a series of foreign universities have developed an industrial technology for the purification of graphene, which has higher stability ...

Green hydrogen production using algal proteins

We are increasingly thinking about hydrogen as a successor of crude oil—for instance, through the use of hydrogen fuel cells. But where will the hydrogen come from? Industrial or domestic bioreactors using green algae could ...

Aging simulation finds dangerous molecule activity

Every time we breathe, we bring crucial oxygen into the body. However, a very small part of this oxygen may be converted to so-called free radicals, which have the ability to damage our cells. The older we become, the more ...
