Suppressed activity of small molecules called microRNA has been linked to the onset of blood-borne cancers. This is because they target other RNA molecules and stop them coding for certain proteins, with their impairment previously been linked to the formation of tumors and metastasis. Scientists in Australia have now made a breakthrough they say will allow them to detect low microRNA leve
It's an unfortunate truth that weapons and explosives in public places are an increasing problem, with some schools in the US beginning to implement security checkpoints. But many of these technologies are bulky and expensive to set up, and require staff to operate. Now a new study has found a way to tap into a type of signal that's already ubiquitous in most public places – plain old Wi-F is a social bookmarking place where you can share, find & discuss the best news around on most topics. We focus on hi-tech reviews, gadgets and geekery but we like almost anything that's awesome, appealing and thought-provoking! er6i9ds5mz
