Study finds the macro role of microRNA in fighting viral infections and its dark side in autoimmune diseases
Study finds a molecular switch for feeding and fasting could hold clue to obesity and aging.
In a recent study published in the Behavioral Ecology journal, Dr Anand Krishnan from the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISER) Pune, studied birds’ singing activity and changes in the community structure of singing birds, before and after the arrival of migrant birds. The findings serve as a framework for monitoring rapidly-changing urban habitats through vocal birds and their singing behaviour.
Pune researchers take a molecular modelling approach to identify drug targets for the deadly Nipah virus.
In a recent study, researchers from the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research, Pune, have shown that the release of calcium from the neurons in specific synapses promotes their reuse.
Study shows hydrogen sulfide (H2S) dimer contains hydrogen bonds, just like water
Researchers from IISER Pune, have reported that environment and evolution can influence the ‘dispersal syndrome’ in fruit flies. This study was supported by the DST, Government of India.
In a recent study, scientists from the Indian Institutes of Science Education and Research (IISER), Pune, have identified factors that affect the dispersal patterns of fruit flies (Drosophila melanogaster).
The summer is here, and the newspapers are already flashing headlines on how hot this summer could be. While we humans may turn on the air coolers, what would the thousands of animals and plants do? It turns out, some trees have unique tricks up their leaves, quite literally! A new study by researchers from the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISER), Pune, and Oak Ridge National Laboratory, USA, shows how tropical trees deal with the heat and the adaptations in their leaves that help them survive in extreme heat conditions.
Bats use high frequency sounds waves to echolocate their food. While most bats move their heads, nose, ears or mouth to change the direction of the sound waves they produce, Egyptian fruit bats do so without any visible movements in their head or body. Scientists from IISER Pune and University of Washington, USA, Johns Hopkins University, USA explore how they pull off this feat.
