Molecular, Genomic, and Environmental Reasons for Cellular Aging

Posted 1 CommentPosted in Biology

Laura Márquez-Cianci Instituto Tecnológico de Monterrey Campus Cuernavaca, Morelos, México Abstract: It is a fact that as years go by, hair turns gray, bones weaken, vitality is lost, and the body’s ability to fight against diseases decreases. Getting old can be a painful reminder of time’s harsh realities. However, why do humans age? Why do […]

Peer-to-peer Lending: Optimizing the Classification and Matching of Digital Karmic Personas

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Computer Science

Sanya Sharma William Jones College Preparatory Abstract In 2020, student debt in the U.S. has amounted to a sum of $1.56 trillion and is a growing national concern [1]. To alleviate this crisis, I assisted in the development of Coinsequence—a curated, peer-to-peer lending platform in which do-good lenders directly invest in students’ digital profiles. Here, […]

Comparing RSSI Between Thinly Enclosed and Exposed Devices

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Computer Science

Abstract In this paper, we explore the idea of private automated contact tracing through bluetooth devices. This is done through a controlled experiment where Received Signal Strength Indicator (RSSI) values are measured from different distances in both an exposed setting as well as a thinly enclosed setting [3]. The behavior and patterns of the RSSI […]

Radiocarbon: How it’s formed and used in archaeology

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Archaeology, Other

Introduction Willard Libby, a professor of chemistry at the University of Chicago, was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in the year 1960. This Nobel Prize was for the discovery of a technique, Radiocarbon Dating, that revolutionized the field of archaeology and palaeontology1. Radiocarbon Dating is a method used to estimate the age of carbon-containing […]

Biodegradation of Polyethylene Fragments and Microbeads using Bacillus subtilis and Pseudomonas putida

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Earth Science, Environment

Abstract More than 5 trillion plastic pieces – a major contributor being microplastics – are afloat in the world’s oceans[1]. Microplastics are less than five millimeters in length, are problematic to remove using filters, and cause other ecological damages. Over time, multiple morphologies and polymers of microplastics have increased in quantity in San Francisco Bay […]

Effects of different amounts of air particulate matter on the depression and anxiety levels of adults from Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City

Quantum Computing: How it all adds up

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Computer Science

Introduction Quantum computing has taken the world by storm. Many believe that quantum computers have the potential to overtake even the fastest supercomputers, and for good reason. Quantum computers – unlike classical computers – rely on the peculiar phenomena of quantum mechanics. How, though, do these machines function? How do scientists realistically incorporate quantum ideas […]

Predicting Cell Phenotypes from scRNAseq Data

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Computer Science

  Ryan Nayebi* Mentor: Brianna Chrisman *Woodside Priory School Abstract The use of machine learning to analyse data obtained through single-cell RNA sequencing (scRNAseq) provides eye-opening insights into cellular biology. Applications of this type of data analysis range from understanding tumor heterogeneity (with potential for creating lifesaving, patient-specific treatment) to studying stochastic gene expression.[17] Throughout […]
