This Russian Robot is Hiring Humans
========================================================
A Russian startup is using a #robot called Vera for helping its clients- #PepsiCo, #Ikea, and #L’Oréal recruit for blue-collar positions (waiters, clerks, construction workers). Vera can simultaneously interview hundreds of candidates via #videoorvoicecalls. This software combines #speechrecognitiontechnologies from #Amazon, #Google, #Microsoft, and #Yandex, and its #vocabulary has been enriched using 13 billion examples of #speechandsyntax from TV, #Wikipedia, and #joblistings.@ https://www.omicsonline.org/robots-with-biological-brain-jcsb.1000042.php?aid=1694

A Complex Network of Noncoding RNAs
====================================================
Scientists at the Whitehead Institute have identified complex network of noncoding RNAs in the #mammalianbrain. This is the first documented report of an RNA-based regulatory network comprised of three different types of noncoding RNA: #circularRNA, #longnoncodingRNA, and #microRNA. This complex network of noncoding RNAs is conserved across #placentalmammals. The study expands our understanding of how various types of noncoding RNAs interact in order to regulate each other.@ https://www.omicsonline.org/open-access/noncoding-rnas-a-dynamic-and-complex-network-of-gene-regulation-2153-0645-1000156.php?aid=69657

It’s All in the Smell
===================================================
A new research has revealed that children with #malaria smell sweeter to #Aedesmosquitoes. It was identified that the mosquitoes respond to #aldehydes such as heptanal, optanal, nonanal etc., present in the odor of individuals suffering from malaria. This finding can be useful in developing #chemicaltraps for these mosquitoes.@ https://www.omicsonline.org/open-access/studies-on-knowledge-attitude-and-practices-in-malaria-endemic-tribal-areas-of-bihar-and-jharkhand-india-2329-891X.1000110.php?aid=17047

Placenta, a Key Player in Schizophrenia??
====================================================
A new research sheds light on the role of the #placenta in conferring the risk for #schizophrenia and other #neurodevelopmentaldisorders. This study found that multiple genes associated with schizophrenia risk indirectly alter the #earlybraindevelopment, by affecting the health of the placenta. These genes when "turned on", signal a placenta in duress. For the first time, the link between genetic risk, early life complications, and #mentalillness has been found to converge on the placenta.@ https://www.omicsonline.org/open-access/gene-determinants-and-perinatal-growth-phenotype-2169-0111.1000106.php?aid=11805

Sensory Dysfunction, a Marker for Disease??==================================================
Over the past few years a significant amount of literature has evolved, linking sensory dysfunction, especially that of smell and taste to #neurodegenerative and #neuropsychiatricdiseases. This review of literature discusses the use of sensory screenings as an early marker for identification of neurodegenerative and neuropsychiatric diseases in first-degree relatives at risk of developing these diseases.@ https://www.omicsonline.org/open-access/smell-and-taste-dysfunction-as-early-markers-for-neurodegenerative-and-neuropsychiatric-diseases-2161-0460-1000186.php?aid=42383

Bavarian Police Goes the DNA Phenotyping Way
=========================================================
Bavaria has authorized the analysis of #forensicDNAsamples for predicting the geographical ancestry and physical features of the unknown suspect(s)/victim(s), by its police. Although, #ancestryprediction and #DNAphenotyping are regularly used by the police in Canada, France, the Netherlands, the UK, and several U.S. states, the German police can only perform #DNAfingerprinting and not DNA phenotyping during its investigations.@ https://www.omicsonline.org/open-access/predicting-physical-features-and-diseases-by-dna-analysis-current-advancesand-future-challenges-2157-7145-1000336.php?aid=79947

Pay with Your Face
=======================================================
The Facial recognition space is growing by leaps and bounds, and China is at its forefront. Companies such as #Face++ and #Baidu have used #deeplearning to develop #facerecognitiontechnologies. Their data is already being used by several apps; #mobilepaymentapps also being among them. Baidu’s system would allow people pick up their train tickets by just showing their face.@ https://www.omicsonline.org/open-access/detection-segmentation-and-recognition-of-face-and-its-features-usingneural-network-2155-6210-1000210.php?aid=76176&view=mobile

Nipah Virus- Why Now?
=====================================================
More than ten people have died in Kerala after contracting the #Nipahvirus (NiV), an #emerginginfectiousdisease. It has been found that NiV is transmitted upon the consumption of bat urine or saliva #contaminateddatepalmsap. Though, NiV has persisted in bats for centuries, it is spreading only now. This might be because #rapidurbanization has triggered an increase in #humanbatinteraction.@ https://www.omicsonline.org/open-access/nipah-virus-2329-9088.1000129.php?aid=16706

Proteins Made to Order
=====================================================
Researchers at the #MassachusettsInstituteofTechnology (MIT) have developed #one-beadonecompoundproteinlibraries for large-scale #screeningofsyntheticproteins, key bottleneck in #xenoprotein engineering. Using this screen, the researchers intend to screen for xenoproteins that can #neutralizeanyinfectiousdisease. They have already identified molecules that can bind to the #anthraxtoxin and to a glycoprotein of the #Ebolavirus.@ https://www.omicsonline.org/open-access/beyond-protein-engineering-its-applications-in-synthetic-biology-2329-6674.1000e103.php?aid=9182

Cows as Vehicles for Passive Immunotherapy
=========================================
Researchers at the Leidos Biomedical Research Inc, USA have developed a novel method of manufacturing neutralizing antibodies against the #MiddleEastRespiratorySyndrome (MERS). This #passiveimmunotherapy strategy involves using the #hyperimmuneplasma of #transchromosomiccows, which synthesize antigen-specific, human polyclonal IgG de novo (SAB-301) following #vaccinationwithaninertformoftheMERSCoronavirus.@ https://www.omicsonline.org/open-access/middle-east-respiratory-syndrome-coronavirus-current-status-andfuture-implications-2161-0703-1000200.php?aid=62843
