“Cognitive enhancer” is a broad term for any of a number of different drugs and devices that – depending on which academic or gamer you listen to – will sharpen your mind.
An Australian group led by Scott O’Neill at Monash University has infected mosquitoes with bacteria that prevent the dengue viruses from taking up residence in the mosquito.
The human immune system is a protective force honed by millions of years of evolution to provide a broad, yet thorough opposition to entities that harm the human body.
Synthetic biologists have developed DNA/molecular modules that perform genetic logic operations in living cells to track key moments in a cell’s life or change the fate of a cell. SynBioLGDB (http://bioinformatics.ac.cn/synbiolgdb/) aims to provide the synthetic biology community with a useful resource for efficient browsing and visualization of genetic logic gates.
Millions of lives potentially depend on the resilience to cyber attacks of a new generation of “artificial pancreas” and other medical devices.
Security researcher Seth Wahle of APA Wireless and Rod Soto of Hack Miami used a near-field communications (NFC) chip implant in his hand to demonstrate that it is possible to exploit Android devices and avoid detection by common body scanners located at airports and high-security environments.
It may be more sensible to judge a plant by its specific traits rather than the way it was produced – GMO or not.
Ce6 “Night Vision” Eye Drops May Damage Vision — Interview with UCSF Ophthalmologist and Retinal Disease Expert Dr. Jacque Duncan
Ce6 eye drops may cause eye damage including central retinal vein occlusion and retinal hemorrhages in an animal model.
No, Biohackers Did Not Just Discover Eyedrops That Give You Night Vision — And using them might damage your eyesight
Currently, there is better scientific evidence that smoking weed improves your night vision than that Ce6 night vision eyedrops do.
A group of leading biologists earlier this month called for a halt to the use of a powerful new gene editing technique on humans. Known by the acronym CRISPR, the method allows precise editing of genes for targeted traits, which can be passed down to future generations.
