I completed my PhD from TIFR (Mumbai) in 2016. I write about things which I am passionate about, including new scientific breakthroughs, education, policy, human behavior, and environment.
Wind is a green alternative to fossil fuels, but its complex environmental impact may stand in the way of widespread use and acceptance.
Researchers have found that reproductive functions of bean plants reduced upon heat stress and that this damage could be reversed by application of GABA
Detachment of retina in the eye is one of the leading causes of blindness in developing countries. In a recent study, researchers created a biopolymer that can act as a natural vitreous substitute–a clear gelatinous substance that fills the cavity between lens and retina.
Climate change studies in India got a crowdsourced citizen science push when a programme involving local farmers assessed how different wheat varieties were performing in the face of the country’s changing climate
India is a leading player in nanotechnology research globally. To facilitate research in this sector, a national facility for Atom Probe Tomography has been established at the Indian Institute of Technology Madras, in partnership with several other institutes.
Do the same microbial species reside in the guts of people from different parts of India? Researchers from IISER Bhopal decided to carry out an in-depth study of the diversity of Indian gut flora by comparing and contrasting the microbiome of populations from two parts of the country with very disparate diets.
Indian researchers have found that the positive and negative symptoms of schizophrenia vary across the phases of the menstrual cycle: premenstrual, menstrual and postmenstrual.
The excessive amounts of human waste and toxic effluents that find their way into the Ganga river are not only polluting the water but also causing deficit of dissolved oxygen in the riverbeds in some of the most polluted stretches of the river, a new study has found.
Early detection of diabetes may become possible with a new sensor developed by Indian scientists to detect low levels of Retinol Binding Protein 4 (RBP4), a biomarker for early diabetes.
