CRISPR technology was first used in the USA for treating cancer patients.

Back in 2016, the National InstitutionsThe US public health service allowed a research group from the University of Pennsylvania (UPenn) to begin testing CRISPR (genome editing) technology in humans. Nevertheless, the controversial and earned highly controversial assessment of scientists technology has just now reached the clinical trials in the United States. Representatives of the University of UPenn in an interview with NPR confirmed that they officially began to use it.Continue Reading

Solar panels can generate electricity using snow.

Solar panels are actively used inremote corners of the planet to generate electricity, and for their effective work it is necessary that the surface of the panels was always open. Unfortunately, in snow-covered regions it is impossible to protect yourself from this - the snow cover quickly and easily lays down around the entire perimeter of the panels, blocking the sunlight. Researchers from the University of California at Los Angeles have partly decided thisContinue Reading
