Researchers at Department of Computational and Data Sciences at Indian Institute of Science (IISc) have developed the first computational model aimed at Pictionary- an image based word guessing game.
In an interdisciplinary study, scientists from the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, display how the use of nanotechnologies can be useful in treatment of cancer.
Manipulation of particles whose sizes are a billionth of a metre poses a huge challenge and is a vast area of research. Manipulation of objects on this scale has important application from medicines to quantum technologies. Scientists from the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore have devised a new approach to trap and maneuver nanoscale objects.
Scientists from the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, in a rare study combining biology and paleontology show how different climatic factors over evolutionary time have affected the evolution of fan throated lizards.
With an increase in the occurance of cancer predicted in the coming years, scientists from the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, make astounding discoveries on the molecular mechanism behind the spread of cancer, which can help better understand and treat the disease.
Using satellite data from 1973, 1991 and 2016, researchers from the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, study how protected area have deteriorated over the years. The study also assesses the reason for the said deterioration of the forests.
Scientists from the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore design a novel transistor by combining two different types of transistors in to one. The new hybrid device can switch between a conventional thermionic transistor and a modern tunnelling transistor overcoming many challenges faced before.
How do insects find partners of their species to mate with in vast fields and forests? Recent research from scientists at the University of Exeter and the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore have shown how sounds acts as a barrier between interbreeding among different species.
The Himalayas are home to a host of biodiversity which has yet to be studied in detail. Taking the first steps to better understand a species of song birds scientists from the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore and Cornell University explore if the sex of Green-backed tits can be identified by looking at the size of the beak and the thickness of the breast stripe.
