The suggestion that such a diverse group of substances should be all considered SVHCs... simply due to the presence of bromine in the molecule is devoid of any scientific merit. Read the comment by Kevin Bradley, International Bromine Council (BSEF).
In the UK and Western Europe, there is a high level of concern about the ethics of trade in human tissue, so brokers find it much easier to source samples in other parts of the world. Read the comment from Robert Hewitt, founder of Biosample Hub
This new breed of data-driven service engineer will be able to identify and fix potential problems with machinery before they cause an issue on the line, and, potentially, before a manufacturer even realises there is a problem. Read the comment from Eddie Storan, Head of Global Service, Domino Printing Sciences.
An artificial intelligence system has predicted the 3D structures of more than 360,000 proteins, representing a ‘quantum leap for biology’ and paving the way for an acceleration in scientific research, according to experts.
A fungus that inflicts the most damaging disease of oilseed rape in the UK is becoming increasingly resistant to azole fungicides. This fall-off was confirmed in a new study of light leaf spot at Rothamsted Research, which reported that a mixture of azole plus QoI (pyraclostrobin) or SDHI (penthiopyrad) fungicides is required for robust disease control (Plant Pathology, doi: 10.1111/ppa.13441).
