Scientists figured out how to make wine and cheese with weed

Scientists of the South Ural state University (SUSU) discovered that the extract of common weeds — Bidens pilosa is a promising source of enzymes for the food industry. According to the authors obtained a series of substances may be available herbal alternative to expensive enzymes required in winemaking and cheesemaking. The study is published in the journal International Journal of Scientific and Technology.

Research South Ural state University scientists showed that an extract from the pulp of the leaves of Bidens pilose (Bidens pilosa L.) accelerates the cleavage of peptide bonds of protein, making it suitable for the production of various biologically active substances, in particular of the tyrosine part of proteins of all living organisms and was first isolated from cheese in 1846.

Russian scientists have learned to identify diseases in blood serum

Scientists from St. Petersburg Polytechnic University Peter the Great (SPbSPU), together with colleagues from Tsinghua University (China) developed a new method of diagnosing diseases based on the analysis of laser light scattering in blood serum. The results of the study were published in first quartile Biology publisher MDPI.

As explained in Spbpu, this method is fast, non-contact, safe, does not require the use of expensive reagents. These benefits, according to scientists, will allow it to be used in screening studies of blood, for example, in the framework of dispanserization.

Scientists have found the earliest evidence of vladychestva in the bronze age

Scientist of the South Ural state University (SUSU) Igor Czechoslov as part of an international team of researchers from Kazakhstan, Russia and the USA have discovered the earliest evidence of the use of horses for horsemen in the bronze age, according to the University.

The article on the results of a multidisciplinary study of the burial of horses published in one of the most prestigious journals of the first quartile Journal of Archaeological Science: Reports.

Ural scientists have identified effective drugs against coronavirus

Scientists of the South Ural state University (SUSU) in Chelyabinsk has identified effective drugs against coronavirus, according to the University.

Under the guidance of head of laboratory, candidate of chemical Sciences Vladimir Potemkin, the researchers reportedly analyzed the famous drugs that can fight the new type of coronavirus. The team decided to focus on the drugs listed in DrugBank database. Their more than eight thousand, and each is widely known in the world and approved by, for example, the Federal medical-biological Agency of Russia, Rospotrebnadzor, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) of the United States.

Russian scientists have discovered a new physical paradox

Scientists from St. Petersburg Polytechnic University Peter the Great (Spbpu) found and theoretically explained a new physical effect, the essence of which consists in the possibility of growth of the amplitude of mechanical vibrations of an object without any external influence. In addition, they suggested that if the paradox of Fermi-Pasta-Ulam-Tsingou.

In SPbSPU is explained by a simple example: to rock the swing, they need to constantly push. It was believed that without continual external influence to achieve vibrational resonance is impossible.

A unique method of creating a powder composites developed in Russia

A new method of making composite metal powder has been developed by scientists of the South Ural state University (SUSU). The authors argue that their method allows to reduce production waste and improve the quality of electrical products and, as a consequence, to increase production efficiency by 30%. The study is published in journal Metallurgist.

A team of scientists of the University presented a unique method and design of the mixer to prepare a powder of composite materials based on graphite, coke and the polymeric component. The new method will improve the quality of the finished raw materials for the subsequent pressing process and to reduce waste production in nuclear energy, aviation and space industry, metallurgy and electric transport.

Scientists have identified the influence of wage growth in the regions of migration to the North

Scientists from Tyumen and Kazan found that wage growth in the European regions of Russia significantly affects migration in the far North, told RIA Novosti at the Tyumen state University (TSU).

According to the researchers, one of the reasons for negative migration growth of the population in the far North may be closing the gap in wages between the North and other areas of the country, including the regions of Central and southern Russia, where the salary for the last 15 years have grown faster.

In Russia have found a way to safely recycling oil

Economical and environmentally friendly method of disposal of waste from drilling wells has been developed by scientists of the Tyumen industrial University (TIU). According to the authors, their development will help considerably to reduce the toxic environmental impact of oil production on land. About it reported in a press-service of the University.

When drilling oil wells, as explained by the experts, they injected a special saline solutions, water-or oil-based. Out of the hole, breed with such additives are toxic for the environment, and the elimination of contamination is more than ten years.

Russian scientists have proposed a way to detect kidney cancer at an early stage

Professor-researcher at the Institute of living systems of the Baltic Federal University named Kant (Kaliningrad) Liudmila Matskova, together with colleagues from China have proposed a method of detecting kidney cancer at an early stage on the basis of molecular biology techniques that will improve the effectiveness of treatment of this disease, reported the press service of the BFU.

Kidney cancer in most cases are asymptomatic, and clinical manifestations occur mainly in the later stages, when the treatment is ineffective. The average life expectancy of these patients is limited to a period of five years. It is therefore important to find ways to "detect" the beginning of tumor growth as early as possible. Now scientists have found that in cells of kidney cancer compared to their healthy "brothers" are decidedly less protein 4 cadherin – molecules, whose function is to "consolidate" normal cells together.

MSU was the best Russian universities in the ARWU subject ranking for physics

Moscow state University named after Lomonosov was the best Russian universities in subject rankings Academic ranking of world universities (ARWU) in physics, told RIA Novosti the organizers.

The company ShanghaiRanking Consultancy published a Global University ranking by subject areas (GRAS) for 2020. Since 2009, the company publishes a version of the Academic ranking of world universities (ARWU) by subject area. This release contains a ranking of universities in 54 subject areas in the following categories: natural Sciences, engineering science, nature, medicine and social Sciences. The research was attended by over four thousand universities.
