    Science News'Superbug genes' found in Arctic wildernesses, warn scientists

    A bacteria with most powerful antibiotics resistant capacity have been discovered in the Arctic, indicating even the world’s last “pristine” environments are being colonised by superbugs. It comes with terrible warnings from health secretary Matt Hancock at the World Economic Forum, that antimicrobial resistance is a “global health emergency” more important than climate change or war.

    EnvironmentHere is why feathered dinosaurs failed to fly like birds

    In an attempt to study ancient lives and habitats, scientists in China and America has found that Anchiornis, one of the earliest feathered dinosaurs, could to fly like birds due to the lack of certain kind of proteins in its feathers. This interesting study and findings has been published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

    EnvironmentDo you know plants can smell; Yes, researchers know how

    Unlike human beings, plants don't have nose to smell. They have this inherent ability in their genes. A team of researchers at the University have discovered how information from odour molecules changes gene expression in plants. The study of plants odour detection systems may lead to new ways of influencing plant behaviour.

    Science NewsGenetic engineering to produce spicy tomato

    Researchers keep on experimenting new things and during the course they come up with new discoveries which are unbeatable. Recently, researchers at the Federal University of Viçosa in Brazil have found that the capsaicinoids are responsible for the pungent taste. Experts say that there are at least 23 different types of capsaicinoids that originate from the pith of the chilli pepper.

    SourcesWhy marine animals are more vulnerable to man-made pesticides

    Marine mammals such as dolphins, manatees, seals and whales, which evolved to make water their primary habitat, lost the ability to make a gene that defends humans and other land-dwelling mammals from the neurotoxic effects of a popular human-made pesticide, a new study has revealed.
