Correcting genetic mistakes with CRISPR/Cas

CRISPR/Cas is one of the most promising technologies developed in the field of genetic engineering in the past few years. Scientists have managed to transform bacterial immune systems, allowing them to make precise modifications to any organism’s genome. Some of the potential applications of this technology are treatment of hereditary diseases, creation of next-level antibiotics, and genetic modification of animals and plants.

Robots can now play Jenga

The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) is famous for extensive research in the emerging field of robotics. This time, they taught a robot to play Jenga.

Hubble discovers a new galaxy

The telescope's discovery happened quite by accident. This case clearly shows how little we know about the world in which we live.

A 500 year experiment

In 2014, a grandiose project was launched to determine the age limit of long-lived bacteria. It will take half a millennium.\n
