Genetic code that may help coronavirus survive identified: Researchers
In the study, published in the journal Biochemical and Biophysical Research Communications, researchers used a new tool to determine what chemical sequences stored in the genetic material of the viruses, their RNA, are more stable.

Coronavirus capable of invading brain, claims new study
According to a latest study, which was led by Yale immunologist Akiko Iwasaki, the virus is able to replicate inside the brain, and its presence starves nearby brain cells of oxygen, though the prevalence of this is not yet clear.
Is your coronavirus test positive? Maybe it shouldn’t be.
Most of these people are not likely to be contagious, and identifying them may contribute to bottlenecks that prevent those who are contagious from being found in time.
Novel coronavirus mutations may not make it more infectious: Study
Coronaviruses, like other RNA viruses, can develop mutations in three different ways: by mistake from copying errors during viral replication, through interactions with other viruses infecting the same cell, or they can be induced by RNA modification systems which are part of host immunity, the researchers explained.
Scientists identify cellular structure that may play critical role in coronavirus replication
The study, published in the journal Science Advances, uncovers a coronavirus-specific structure in cells, which may act as a target for much-needed antiviral strategies against this family of viruses.
'Novel method to understand how coronavirus evolves developed'
In the study, published in the journal Transboundary and Emerging Diseases, the scientists developed a novel platform, originally used to analyse the human genome, to pinpoint differences among the thousands of genetic sequences of the novel coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2.
There are different types of coronavirus tests available. Here's how they work
Genetic, antigen and antibody tests are the 3 types that used to determine Covid diagnosis.
Artificial intelligence can speed up and improve Alzheimer's diagnosis: Study
Scientists at the UK's University of Sheffield's Neuroscience Institute examines how the routine use of AI in healthcare could help to relieve the time and economic impact that common neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's, put on the National Health Service (NHS).
JK Agri Genetics Q1 results: Net profit jumps 31% to Rs 20 crore

Pharma major Cipla gets USFDA nod for rare genetic condition treatment drug
Cipla's Icatibant injectable pre-filled syringe in the strength of 30mg/3mL is generic version of Shire's Firazyr, the company said in a regulatory filing.
Genome sequencing: A solution to India's problem of rare genetic diseases
A genome is a person’s complete set of DNA, including all genes with more than 3 billion DNA base pairs. Genome sequencing will lead to precision medication, instead of clinicians giving drugs based on collective knowledge. Diagnostic companies such as Dr Lal Path-Labs and Lifecell have already partnered with IndiGen, offering genetic testing.
How coronavirus jumped from animals to humans decoded
This jump from species-to-species was the result of the ability of the virus to bind to host cells, a study shows.
Lab-made 'mild virus' that mimics coronavirus can help in developing antiviral drugs
This genetically modified virus generates antibodies in humans just like the Covid-19.
