Active, biodegradable packaging for oily products
The increase in the presence of plastic in our lives is an unstoppable trend due to the versatility of this material. So innovation in the packaging industry has been focusing on the development of new, more sustainable, economically viable materials with enhanced properties and which also perform the functions required by this sector: to contain, protect and preserve the product, to inform the consumer about it and to facilitate the distribution of it. Now, a single-layer, biodegradable container from agro-industrial by-products suitable for both liquid and solid oily products has been developed by researchers.

Ion adsorption matter in biology
Biological membranes are mainly composed of lipid bilayers. Gaining a better understanding of adsorption of solution ions onto lipid membranes helps clarify functional processes in biological cells. A new study provides a quantitative description of the equilibria between lipid membranes and surrounding solution ions. In addition to shedding some light on biological processes, these results could also have implications for, among other things, the future development of medical diagnostics.

Goodbye to rainy days for US, Japan's first rain radar in space
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) After 17 years of groundbreaking 3-D images of rain and storms, the joint NASA and Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission will come to an end next year. NASA predicts that science operations will cease in or about April 2015, based on the most recent analysis by mission operations at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Maryland.

NTU Singapore lights up photonics research with $100 million institute
(Nanyang Technological University) The next generation ultra-fast Internet or ground-breaking electronic circuits powered by light instead of electricity could very well be built on research done at Nanyang Technological University (NTU Singapore). NTU Singapore is partnering the University of Southampton, UK to set up the new institute.

Transforming 'big data' into knowledge
(Harvard Medical School) The HMS Center for Biomedical Informatics has received two major government grants totaling nearly $28 million. This new infusion of support will enable the center to continue two major foci of study, one involving neuropsychiatric illness and the other involving new approaches to precision medicine.
