Mouse Sperm Survives in Space, but Could Human Babies?

HIGHLIGHTS Freeze-dried mouse sperm used to produce healthy rodent offspring This raises ethical questions about creating humans in deep space Mouse sperm was freeze-dried and sent for nine month to the ISS Freeze-dried mouse sperm that spent nine months in space has been used to produce healthy rodent offspring back on Earth, Japanese researchers said this week. But could the ... Read More »

Not robocop, but robojudge? AI learns to rule in human rights cases

An artificial intelligence system designed to predict the outcomes of cases at the European Court of Human Rights would side with the human judges 79 percent of the time. Researchers at University College London and the University of Sheffield in the U.K., and the University of Pennsylvania in the U.S., described the system in a paper published Monday by the ...

Zuckerberg sees ‘better than human’ AI in subsequent 10 years

Mark Zuckerberg expects synthetic intelligence will development to make computers better than people atsimple sensory belief inside the subsequent 10 years, and that fb will emerge as knowing loads extraapproximately you than it does now. The prediction is the modern day from a top tech CEO to signify the short improvement being made inmachine mastering systems that just a few ... Read More »

Repairing DNA damage in the human body

Workers representing the repair system known as nucleotide excision repair (NER), repairing DNA and snakes, representing proteins that bind DNA at gene promoters, potentially preventing them from doing this. Credit: Jackie Mostek UNSW medical scientists have discovered that DNA repair is compromised at important regions of our genome, shedding new light on the human body’s capacity to repair DNA damage. ...

Human ‘hairless’ gene identified: One form of baldness explained

It’s not a hair-brained idea: A new research report appearing in the April 2014 issue of The FASEB Journal explains why people with a rare balding condition called “atrichia with papular lesions” lose their hair, and it identifies a strategy for reversing this hair loss. Specifically the report shows for the first time that the “human hairless gene” imparts an ... Read More »

New structural features of human hair discovered

Human hair structure has been studied extensively for more than 70 years, but a complete picture of its local structure has proven elusive. But now, by combining a submicron X-ray beam with cross-section geometry, a team of researchers has detected new structural features of human hair. Share: FULL STORY Electron Microscopy micrograph of human hair cross-section. The top region shows ... Read More »
