Researchers have identified a link between being born preterm and decreased intelligence, reading and in particular mathematical ability and have highlighted an effect on earnings into adulthood.
Intermittency is one of the problems affecting renewable energies, including marine energy: sometimes there's a lot; other times it's in short supply. So to properly manage sea energy and incorporate it into the mains, it is helpful to know when the waves are expected to be bringing sufficient power. The journal Ocean Engineering has recently published an article by this group -- 'Short-term forecasting of the wave energy flux: Analogues, random forests, and physics-based models' -- providing details of the project.
Jae Kyoung Kim, who is an assistant professor in the Department of Mathematical Sciences at KAIST, has predicted how these biological circuits generate rhythms and control their robustness, utilizing mathematical modeling based on differential equations and stochastic parameter sampling.
The scientific team of a new biotech company Gero in collaboration with one of the leading academics in the field of aging Professor Robert J. Shmookler Reis (current world record holder in life extension for model animals -- 10-fold for nematodes) has recently brought new insights into biology of aging and age-related diseases, primarily, around the stability and stress resistance of certain gene regulatory networks. The work has just been published in Scientific Reports.
People who developed type 2 diabetes tended to take more antibiotics in the years leading up to the diagnosis than people who did not have the condition, according to a new study published in the Endocrine Society's Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism.
Scientists have discovered the mechanism that generates earthquakes that occur away from tectonic plate boundaries.
A new theory expands applications of bit-data search techniques.
