Taking It to a New Dimension: New Lens Design for Snappier 3D Imaging Shooting high definition 2D as well as 3D movies with the same lens is now possible, according to new study by Korean scientists Light-field imaging is an emerging technology by which pictures with 3D features are obtained...
Nip it in the Bud: New, Simple Diagnostic Tool for Effective Detection of Colorectal Cancer
Nip it in the Bud: New, Simple Diagnostic Tool for Effective Detection of Colorectal Cancer Scientists devise novel method to detect key biomarker proteins associated with colorectal cancer, thus ensuring effective diagnosis and timely treatmentThe diagnosis of colorectal cancer is challenging in its early st..
Fatty acid desaturases, polyunsaturated fatty acid regulation, and biotechnological advances
Made from fatty acid desaturases, polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) are important nutrients that help regulate brain development, cognitive function, cardiovascular diseases, cancers, and diabetes. Studies have shown that the genes responsible for fatty acid desaturases have an influence on different physio..
Porcine epidemic diarrhea virus: An emerging and re-emerging epizootic swine virus
Since the 1970s, there have been recurrent outbreaks of porcine epidemic diarrhea (PED), a viral disease in pigs. These outbreaks cause massive economic damage to the pork industry. This review compiles the latest knowledge on the molecular basis of this disease, its diagnosis, and progression, and calls for..
Generalized Killing Ricci tensor for real hypersurfaces in complex two-plane Grassmannians
Grassmannians represent a set of subspaces in vector space. This vector space can be analyzed using tensors, a geometric concept similar to vectors. This study combines two well-known tensors, the Killing tensor and the Ricci tensor, to propose a new generalized Killing Ricci tensor to describe complex two-pl..
Matrix power means and the Karcher mean
In this paper, researchers from Kyungpook National University have defined a new family of matrix means that converge into the Karcher mean or the Riemannian center of mass, essential concepts in differential geometry. This work also provides proof that the Karcher mean is monotonic. It further proves other p..
Clinical characteristics and outcomes of COVID-19 cohort patients in Daegu Metropolitan City outbreak in 2020
The quick transmission of coronavirus makes it imperative to find ways to predict poor outcomes for patients early so that medical resources can be used efficiently. In Korea, Daegu was ground zero for the COVID-19 pandemic. This study looks at patient characteristics and outcomes in the early stage of the pa..
Prevalence and duration of acute loss of smell or taste in COVID-19 patients
Diagnosing COVID-19 early is key to preventing poor outcomes for patients, as well as to limit its transmission. But many infected individuals remain asymptomatic or have only mild flu symptoms. This study shows that acute loss of smell and taste are important symptoms that occur in even asymptomatic patients..
