CSIR-FPI to get AMD computing support for COVID-19 research

CSIR-Fourth Paradigm Institute is set to receive high-performance technology contributions from the chip-maker AMD as part of the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic. The CSIR-FPI is among several global institutes, including Stanford School of Medicine, to get this assistance from AMD. AMD is contributing high-end computing systems or access to Penguin-On-Demand (POD) cloud-based clusters powered by second-generation AMD EPYC and AMD Radeon Instinct processors to … Continue reading CSIR-FPI to get AMD computing support for COVID-19 research

CSIR scientists find viral strain circulating in India has 70% similarity with major strain around the world

Scientists of the CSIR-Centre for Cellular and Molecular Biology (CSIR-CCMB), Hyderabad, who have analysed more than 2000 genomes of the novel SARS-CoV-2 virus, have found that the clade or genetic group circulating in India has 70% similarity with the major strain around the world. The similarity in viral genome globally means a vaccine or a drug targeting the mutation in A2a clade will work with … Continue reading CSIR scientists find viral strain circulating in India has 70% similarity with major strain around the world

CSIR-IGIB and Ayush Ministry to study the potential of Vasa Guduchi in management of COVID-19

The Ministry of AYUSH has approved a proposal for carrying out a clinical study to assess the role of Vasa and Guduchi in the therapeutic management of symptoms in COVID-19 positive patients. The randomized, open-label three-armed study will be conducted at the All India Institute of Ayurveda (AIIA), New Delhi, in collaboration with the CSIR-IGIB. Vasa and Guduchi are time-tested herbs in Indian healthcare traditions, … Continue reading CSIR-IGIB and Ayush Ministry to study the potential of Vasa Guduchi in management of COVID-19

Ground Improvement Technique to Mitigate Liquefaction Hazards for Safe Building Construction

Soil liquefaction and its associated ground failures during an earthquake are major potential hazards. The important aspect of geotechnical earthquake engineering is to mitigate liquefaction and its associated effects for assuring the safety of foundations. There are different ground improvement techniques available for improving the liquefaction resistance of sand deposits. Ground improvement techniques such as sand compaction piles, stone columns, encased stone columns and prefabricated … Continue reading Ground Improvement Technique to Mitigate Liquefaction Hazards for Safe Building Construction

High throughput viscoelastic particle focusing

Passive particle manipulation using inertial and elasto-inertial microfluidics have received substantial interest in recent years and have found various applications in high throughput particle sorting and separation. For separation applications, elasto-inertial microfluidics has thus far been applied at substantial lower flow rates as compared to inertial microfluidics. In this work, we explore viscoelastic particle focusing and separation in spiral channels at two orders of magnitude … Continue reading High throughput viscoelastic particle focusing

Endonuclease increases efficiency of osteoblast isolation

Bone is a highly dynamic organ that undergoes remodeling equally regulated by osteoblast-mediated bone formation and osteoclast-mediated bone resorption. To clarify the regulation of osteoblastogenesis, primary murine osteoblasts are required for an in vitro study. Primary osteoblasts are isolated from neonatal calvariae through digestion with collagenase. However, the number of cells collected from one pup is not sufficient for further in vitro experiments, leading to … Continue reading Endonuclease increases efficiency of osteoblast isolation

Antifreeze protein from Ammopiptanthus nanus

In this research resercher discuss about the Temperature stress restricts in plant growth and development. Antifreeze protein (AFP) can improve plants antifreeze ability. In our previous study, the AnAFP gene cloned from Ammopiptanthus nanus was confirmed to be an excellent candidate enhancing plant cold resistance. But, AnAFP protein shared similar structures with KnS type dehydrins including K, N and S domains except ice crystal binding … Continue reading Antifreeze protein from Ammopiptanthus nanus
