At Skoltech told where the coronavirus has come to Russia

The first study on genomic epidemiology COVID-19 in Russia showed that the virus entered the country not from China, but mainly from Europe, reported RIA Novosti in the press service of Skoltech, who conducted the analysis in collaboration with other scientific organizations.

It is noted that the work was carried out by researchers from the Center for life Sciences SKOLKOVO, Higher school of Economics, influenza research Institute named after A. A. Smorodintsev and Institute of information transmission problems named after A. A. Kharkevich under the direction of Professor George Skoltech Bazykina.

Skoltech scientists said the formula for water

Russian scientists in cooperation with German colleagues have found that the water contains large amounts of short-lived ions. This radically changes the understanding of the dynamic water structure and approaches to the assessment of acidity. The study is published in the journal Scientific Reports.

Natural water is a composition of a mixture of isotopologues —combinations of different isotopes of oxygen and hydrogen, the two elements that make up water.

Students from the University created a neural network that regulate traffic flows

Students from the team of the far Eastern Federal University (FEFU) in Vladivostok has developed a service optimization and operation control PointsMan traffic lights that will better regulate traffic flows, according to the University.

With this project the students came in the top three at national online hackathon to create projects for the Internet of things (IoT) vision and technical Skill Up. Guys for three days were able to develop a service for traffic control on roads on the basis of machine learning, Internet of things, computer vision and neural networks. The team worked along with experienced opponents, among them - graduates of leading technical universities of the country.
