Create the most complete map of human proteins using AI | Digital Trends Spanish

DeepMind, a research laboratory for Artificial Intelligence (AI), created the most comprehensive map of human proteins to date using AI. The firm is a subsidiary of Alphabet, Google's parent company, and some scientists already compare the potential impact of this work with the Human Genome Project. Importance Proteins are long, complex molecules that carry out various tasks in the body, from building tissues to fighting disease. According to the researchers, its purpose is dictated by its structure, which folds like origami into complex and irregular shapes. DeepMind.Understanding how it folds helps explain protein function, while helping scientists with various tasks, from fundamental research on how the body works to designing new drugs. Until now, determining the structure of a prot...

15,000-year-old virus discovered in Tibetan glacier | Digital Trends Spanish

A team of scientists studying glacier ice has found nearly 15-year-old viruses in two ice samples taken from China's Tibetan Plateau. Most of these viruses, which have managed to survive frozen, do not resemble any other virus cataloged to date. The results, which were published in the journal Microbiome, could help experts understand how viruses have evolved over the centuries. "These glaciers formed gradually, and along with the dust and gases, a lot of viruses were also deposited on that ice," explains Zhi-Ping Zhong, lead author of the study and researcher at the Byrd State University Center for Polar and Climate Research. from Ohio. Ohio State University.“Glaciers in western China are not well studied, and our goal is to use this information to reflect past environments. And virus...

They discover a new species of primate that is already under threat | Digital Trends Spanish

Scientists have identified a new species of primate that lives in the forests of central Burma. It has been called stern iangur and has existed for at least a million years, according to data from the study published in Zoological research. Experts from the German Primate Center and the NGO Fauna and Flora International (FFI) carried out a long investigation to find this small primate, which measures between 50 and 60 centimeters and has a face marked by a tuft of gray hair. The primate discovered belongs to the iangur species (Trachypithecus, according to its scientific name), which is an endemic monkey of the Indian subcontinent and Southeast Asia. It is named after Mount Popa, which is a sacred site built on an ancient volcano in central Burma. In that place, the researchers di...

Chilean scientists propose a new state of matter | Digital Trends Spanish

A team of researchers from the FCFM Department of Physics of the University of Chile and the Millennium Institute of Optics MIRO has managed to generate the conditions to create an exotic state of matter. It should be remembered that this state had already been observed in extreme conditions of temperature and pressure. An example of this would be superconductivity and superfluidity. Scientists have been happy about the finding and expectant about the possibilities it may mean in the future. "We are at the beginning of something that could be completely different from what we have seen," explains Marcel Clerc, professor at the University of Chile and leader of the research. "What we demonstrated was that topological transitions, that is, certain deformations that transform one thi...

This cockroach-inspired robot runs on water | Digital Trends Spanish

A group of researchers and developers from Israel has presented a novel robot whose design and characteristics are inspired by nature. It is AmphiSTAR, an amphibious robot capable of running at high speed on water in addition to swimming. According to its designers, it also copes quite well on other types of terrain, including the most difficult. The making of this prototype has been inspired by cockroaches and lizards and was presented virtually at the International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS). The AmphiSTAR is the size of the palm of your hand. It has wheels and is equipped with four propellers that can be tilted during the expansion mechanism. The propellers also act as wheels on the ground and as fins capable of propelling the robot over the water. As ...

This curious clip-shaped creature lived up to 200 years | Digital Trends Spanish

A group of researchers has just presented to the Geological Society of the United States a strange creature that stands out for its shape and for the long period it would have lived. It is an ancient squid-like animal, which had a shell that looked like a 1.5-meter long paperclip and had the capacity to live for approximately 200 years. The diplomoceras maximum is the name of this species, which lived 68 million years ago, that is, it was contemporary with the tyrannosaurus rex. It was an ammonite, a now-extinct group of tentacled cephalopods, and its most striking feature was its distinctive clip-shaped shell. “It's hard not to be fascinated. He's as tall as I am, ”said Linda Ivany of Syracuse University in New York. She and her team discovered that the diplomoceras maximum it wo...

Gold mine wastewater to combat COVID-19 | Digital Trends Spanish

They may not look good or look good, but analysis of the wastewater could provide researchers with important information about COVID-19. They can be, for example, a premature indicator of the existence of an outbreak of the disease, as well as provide information on the effectiveness of the adoption of quarantine by a population. "Wastewater is really a gold mine for information," says Jordan Peccia, a Yale professor of chemical and environmental engineering. If researchers can identify traces of COVID-19 in sewage sludge, they may be able to identify outbreaks and better understand how the virus spreads. For scientists, the concentration of COVID-19 RNA per milliliter of sewage sludge can indicate the presence or absence of the disease, as well as the way in which it spreads, eith...

NASA detects “elves” and “goblins” in the atmosphere of Jupiter | Digital Trends Spanish

New results from NASA's Juno mission suggest the presence of "goblins" or "elves" of light in Jupiter's upper atmosphere. They would not actually be mythological creatures, but rather Transient Light Events (TLE), unpredictable flashes of bright light that are extremely brief. According to the space agency itself, this would be the first time that these phenomena have been observed on another planet. These "goblins", also named after a mischievous character in English folklore, are transient light events caused by lightning discharges from electrical storms. On Earth, they occur up to 60 miles above intense and high thunderstorms and are capable of illuminating a vast region of the sky, but only last for a few milliseconds. The "elves", meanwhile, owe their name to the acronym Elve...
