Potential damage to astronauts’ health on Mars mission assessed
The effect of exposure to deep space radiance on astronauts’ health is one of the major concerns of planning a mission to Mars. Therefore, National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) funded a study to assess the exact impact of cosmic radiation. The study was conducted by researchers at... Read More

Bacteria advertise to recruit new members to their community
Biologists at University of California, San Diego, have discovered that bacteria living in biofilm communities interact with each other using “ion channels,” which is an electrical signaling method that is similar to the communication signals used by neurons in human brain. Biofilms are thin films... Read More

Multiresistent bacteria display behavior akin to hibernation
Multiresistant bacteria render treatments ineffective and scientists worldwide are trying to tackle this issue. Often even sensitive bacteria display resistance to drugs and are therefore called “persister cells.” Researchers at the BASP Centre, Department of Biology, University of Copenhagen... Read More
