A single type of neuron serves as master controller of habits…A single type of neuron serves as master controller of habits. This rare cell exerts its control through a web of connections to the cells that drive habitual behavior. The FSI cells (fast-spiking interneuron) are only one per cent of the striatum but are linked to 95% of neurons that trigger the stop and go passways.
A surgical glue allows rapid healing of wounds…
A surgical glue called MeTro allows rapid healing of any type of internal or external wound in 60 seconds. It contains a protein that gives elasticity, molecules that act with the light causing activation and enzymes that degrade the whole in the end.
A mouse embryo model was made by combining stem cells…
A mouse embryo model was made by combining two different types of stem cells. The cells seem to organize themselves into the right structure using a 3D scaffold. A third type of stem cells could help to create a functioning embryo artificially. The same technique could be used to build an artificial model of human embryo.
The new tool succeeds in changing a single base of DNA…
The new ABE tool succeeds in changing a single base of DNA. This technique requires the use of Crispr-Cas9 to locate the desired place but ABE is much more efficient and without side effects. Another technique, Crispr-Cas13, acts on RNA that has only one strand.

(72aH*) : August 6th is the anniversary of the atomic bomb explosion on Hiroshima in 1945.
This date represents the entrance of Humanity into the age of Revelation (Apocalypsis).
