Multidrug-resistant TB to Strike Russia on Massive Scale by 2040

A new model study estimates that Russia is likely to have a major issue by 2040 due to increasing incidence of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR TB). However, this looming threat can be managed to a certain extent if the country is prepared to tackle the issue in advance. The current number of cases of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR TB) in Russia is already appalling and if this number were to rise, it

Researchers Develop FBEB – a Unique Microbial Energy Production Method

For the survival of all living things, reproduction is essential, for which they extract energy from surroundings. For generations, it was believed that there were only two methods for all living organisms to generate energy required for cellular metabolism but now researchers have formulated a third method called Flavin-based Electron Bifurcation (FBEB). This finding is more of a discovery rather than an invention as FBEB is actually an ancient form
