New mechanism preserving genomic integrity and is abnormal in the rare DiGeorge syndrome

67208 An international team of scientists — including researchers at GENYO, the Centre for Genomics and Oncological Research (Pfizer-University of Granada- Andalusian Regional Government) — has described a molecular mechanism that facilitates the defence of the human genome against “bombarding” by mobile DNA sequences. Abnormalities in the mechanism could be responsible for some symptoms of… Seguir Leyendo New mechanism preserving genomic integrity and is abnormal in the rare DiGeorge syndrome

Identification of animal disease-transmission agents based on social networks tools

64574 Spanish and US scientists have successfully identified animal species that can transmit more diseases to humans by using mathematical tools similar to those applied to the study of social networks like Facebook or Twitter. Their research — recently published in the journal PNAS — describes how parasite-primate interactions transmit diseases like malaria, yellow fever… Seguir Leyendo Identification of animal disease-transmission agents based on social networks tools

A new ‘virtual moderator’ helps reach consensus in troubled negotiations

A group of researchers have designed a new fuzzy ontology-based system to help people in disagreement reach consensus. This system, which acts as a virtual moderator, is a step forward in the field on Artificial Intelligence. This tool can be useful in making everyday decisions -such as choosing a wine in a restaurant-, but it… Seguir Leyendo A new ‘virtual moderator’ helps reach consensus in troubled negotiations

Researchers develop an artificial cerebellum than enables robotic human-like object handling

University of Granada researchers have developed an artificial cerebellum (a biologically-inspired adaptive microcircuit) that controls a robotic arm with human-like precision. The cerebellum is the part of the human brain that controls the locomotor system and coordinates body movements. To date, although robot designers have achieved very precise movements, such movements are performed at very… Seguir Leyendo Researchers develop an artificial cerebellum than enables robotic human-like object handling
