›  New smartphone clip-on can detect Zika virus in blood samples
In a new study, researchers have combined their efforts to develop an instrument that can be clipped on to a smartphone to rapidly test for Zika virus in a single droplet of blood.
›  Swimming without brains and muscles
Bacteria and other unicellular organisms developed sophisticated ways to actively navigate their way, despite being comparably simple structures. To reveal these mechanisms, researchers used oil droplets as a model for biological microswimmers. Biologists investigated the navigation strategies of microswimmers in several studies: how they navigate against the current in narrow channels, how they mutually affect their movement, and how they collectively start rotating in order to move.
›  Communication makes hunting easier for chimpanzees
Similar to humans, chimpanzees use communication to coordinate their cooperative behavior -- such as during hunting. When chimpanzees produce a specific vocalization, known as the 'hunting bark', they recruit more group members to the hunt and capture their prey more effectively, researchers have now shown.
›  Technique for the isolation of volatile food compounds optimized
A research team has succeeded in automating an established method for the gentle, artifact-avoiding isolation of volatile food ingredients. As the team's current comparative study now shows, automated solvent-assisted flavor evaporation (aSAFE) offers significant advantages over the manual process. It achieves higher yields on average and reduces the risk of contamination by nonvolatile substances.
›  A roadmap for the future of quantum simulation
A roadmap for the future direction of quantum simulation.
›  A paper battery with water switch
A team of researchers has developed a water-activated disposable paper battery. The researchers suggest that it could be used to power a wide range of low-power, single-use disposable electronics -- such as smart labels for tracking objects, environmental sensors and medical diagnostic devices -- and minimize their environmental impact.
›  New DNA repair-kit successfully fixes hereditary disease in patient-derived cells
Genetic mutations which cause a debilitating hereditary kidney disease affecting children and young adults have been fixed in patient-derived kidney cells using a potentially game-changing DNA repair-kit.
›  Plant-based 'meat' 'healthier and more sustainable than animal products'
A new review focuses on the health and environmental benefits of plant-based products, as well as consumer attitudes.
›  It doesn't matter much which fiber you choose -- just get more fiber!
The benefit of dietary fiber isn't just the easier pooping that advertisers tout. Fermentable fiber is an essential source of nutrients that your gut microbes and cells of the intestines need to stay healthy. Study participants who had been eating the least amount of fiber before being fed three different kinds of fiber supplement showed the greatest benefit from supplements, regardless of which ones they consumed.
›  Advanced imaging reveals mired migration of neurons in Rett syndrome lab models
Using organoids to model early development, researchers used an emerging microscopy technology to see that new neurons struggled to reach their developmental destination.
›  New breath-driven concept set to transform access to hand prosthetics
The new air-powered hand provides a lightweight, low-maintenance and easy-to-use body-powered prosthetic option particularly well suited for children and those in low and middle-income countries.
›  Interplay of ancestry and sexual dimorphism significantly affect growth patterns in frontal sinuses, researchers find
Researchers have found the development of the frontal sinus was affected more by sexual dimorphism than the ancestry of the individual and that it was the interplay between those two factors that produced the most significant variation.
