Scientists have learned how to get the stem cells from the blood

Biologists Cambridge University have developed a new method of creating stem cells - from components of human blood. This method of reproductive cells may be the most efficient of the existing, BBC Russian service reports with reference to the researchers. At present, most stem cell scientists are of human skin. However, recent studies have found that these cells may have a genetic defect, and this makes them unsafe for transplant patients.

Genetic diversity of mankind owes the last millennium

At the same time, active breeding has resulted in a large number of potentially harmful genetic variants. However, this does not mean that mankind has become more frail.The human genome was not sitting in vain last five thousand years. The population has grown exponentially, and new genetic mutations occur with each generation. And now we have a great abundance of rare genetic variants in those parts of the genome that code for proteins.A new study helps to clarify, when the most of the options. Using deep sequencing scientists discovered and dated more than a million single nucleotide variants Read more [...]

Collision in the Large Hadron Collider suddenly produced a new type of matter

Collisions of protons with lead ions in the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) have led to an unexpected result in the form of new particles created in the collisions. The new observations show that the impact could produce a new type of matter called color glass condensate (through the eyes). During the high-speed collision of particles formed hundreds noyvh particles, most of which departs from the place of collision at near light speed. But the team Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) at the LHC found that out of a sample of 2 million ion-proton collisions, some pairs of particles in the departure maintained Read more [...]
