Newswise: Engineers developing machine-learning tools to quickly, cheaply design better solar cells

Engineers developing machine-learning tools to quickly, cheaply design better solar cells

Iowa State University

Iowa State engineers are working with collaborators to develop machine learning theories and software tools that can quickly and cheaply design better solar cells. Those theories and tools could also be applied to the rapid design of all kinds of new technologies.

Mayo Clinic researchers look at post menopause as key factor in endometrial cancer

Mayo Clinic

Endometrial cancer is the most common gynecological malignancy in the U.S. and the fourth most common cancer among women. In addition, endometrial cancer incidence rates are on the rise in the western world, suggesting that alterations in environmental factors such as diet, lifestyle, and the vaginal microbiome may be important drivers in its cause.

New CRISPR-based System Targets Amplified Antibiotic-resistant Genes

University of California San Diego

Researchers have developed a new CRISPR-based gene-drive system that more efficiently inactivates a gene rendering bacteria antibiotic-resistant. The new system leverages technology developed by UC San Diego biologists in insects and mammals that biases genetic inheritance of preferred traits called “active genetics.”

More Than One in Three Low- and Middle-Income Countries Face Both Extremes of Malnutrition: Twin Presence of Obesity and Undernutrition Reflects Shifts in Food Systems

World Health Organization (WHO)

A new approach is needed to help reduce undernutrition and obesity at the same time, as the issues become increasingly connected due to rapid changes in countries’ food systems. This is especially important in low- and middle-income countries, according to a new four-paper report published in The Lancet.
