Methods of finding exoplanets

Transit method

As a planet passes in front of a distant star, it will cause a dip in the brightness of the star relative to us. Therefore, by measuring the brightness of many stars at once, we can detect the transits of planets as they pass in front of a star. This method is useful for finding a lot of planets, and it can also determine the mass and size of the planet as well as its orbital period. It is currently the favoured method of planet hunting, used by NASA’s Kepler telescope among many others.

METHODS Microbiology

Since microorganisms are very small dimensions, in the study of individuals can obtain only limited information about their properties. Therefore, usually microbiologists study population consisting of millions and billions of individuals. Such a population or culture obtained by cultivating microorganisms in a more or less specific conditions. The culture containing microorganisms only one type, called the net, and a culture that contains more than one kind of microorganisms — mixed. If the culture grows only two kinds of microorganisms, and their special support in association with each other, so called two-culture.

Thus, the basis of microbiological methods comprise two

METHODS OF PRODUCING SOME batch culture

Technique accumulation of Cultures — one of the most powerful methods available to the microbiologist. To highlight certain microorganisms from natural sources can be used almost infinite number of combinations of various external factors, both chemical and physical. The methods allow the desired enrichment to allocate certain types of microbes, using their specific needs. These methods can be infinitely varied in order to isolate and study not previously described organisms capable of growing in the conditions created by the researcher. Here, we briefly describe a number of methods of preparation, which can be used to isolate natural sources of

Fat Burning: a review of methods

To get rid of excess weight, only one desire is not enough — you need to make an effort. For example, move more, eat less, or use other methods of weight loss that offers the beauty industry. But how effective is it all?

We were asked to comment on the most popular methods of "fat-burning" Doctor of Medicine and author of over 40 scientific papers on the author's method of treatment of overweight Golden Eagle ®, physician reflexologist Mariyat Mukhin.

Method 1. Exercise stress

To lose weight, you need to spend calories. It is believed that the best fat

IVM — an alternative to infertility

Back in 1935, American scientists Pincus and Entsmann proved that human oocytes recovered from the follicle, it may take all of the processes to mature outside the body of a woman. In 1965, the pioneer of in vitro fertilization (IVF), Edwards studied the possibility of a human egg maturation, fertilization and the ability to form viable embryos in the laboratory.

After more than twenty years after the birth of the first child "test-tube" there is an alternative to standard IVF — IVM method («In Vitro Maturation» translated to English means "ripening or maturation outside the body").

The questions

TsAGI scientists have created a new method for gasifying hydrocarbons

TsAGI scientists have created a new method for gasifying hydrocarbons. Development is a process for gasification of hydrocarbons by water electrolysis, which aims to create technologies for electricity and high-quality hydrocarbon nanomaterials, and allows you to use separate the hydrogen and the carbon component of the hydrocarbons.

This invention was one of the 100 best inventions of Russia in 2012.

The proposed method of specialists of the institute has many advantages. For example, using the development of hard-coal reserves from the bowels of the earth, can be 2-3 times increase the security and profitability of

TPU Scientists have developed a new method for rock drilling

Scientists at Tomsk Polytechnic University have developed a new method of drilling different species using electricity discharges. The technology is already interested members of the French oil and gas company. For them, the Polytechnic have organized a demonstration drilling granite, according to broadcaster "News-Tomsk".

New drilling method produces great results in a short time. During the filming process, and it is 10 minutes, the drill was held inside a durable granite by 40 centimeters.

The principle of drilling, which is interested in one of the specialized French companies, is based on

Scientists Irkutsk Technical University received a patent for a method of separating carbon nanoparticles

Staff Physico-Technical Institute of Irkutsk State Technical University received patents for a method of processing solid waste ftoruglerodsoderzhaschih electrolytic aluminum production and the method of allocation of carbon nanoparticles.

One of the authors of the project, Head of Laser Physics and Nanotechnology PTI Nikolai Ivanov explained that the carbon nanostructures (nanotubes, astralenes) are effective modifiers of various materials, which significantly improves their strength characteristics (steels, alloys, ferrous and non-ferrous metals, concrete mixtures, the polymer-bitumen coating, carbon fiber reinforced plastics, etc.).

"Carbon nanotubes help improve many properties of the materials to which they

Scientists at the Skolkovo invented a unique technology for the detection of hydrocarbons in the deep sea

According to the results of the annual international conference "Russia Offshore 2012" marine seismic technology "Geonod Exploration" is recognized as the best technology for exploration in 2012.

Scientists from the company "Geonod" — participants and the first residents of Technopark "Skolkovo" invented a unique technology for the marine bottom seismic hydrocarbon deposits.

"Method "Geonod Exploration" is by far the most cost effective and technologically efficient way seismic hydrocarbons in the whole range of depths from 0 to 7000 meters ", — says Director of Marketing and Business Development "Geonod" Yevgeny Borisov. According to him, "Company" Geonod "is

A unique diagnostic solution for severe hereditary diseases in newborns

October 16 at the Medical Genetics Research Center of the Russian Academy of Medical Sciences (MGNTS RAMS) will host a seminar, which will present the results of the development of an innovative method of diagnostics of severe hereditary diseases in newborns. The project was implemented by the biotech company Sequoia genetics (SC Alcor Bio, Saint Petersburg) with the support of a number of Russian and European partners.

"In fact, we were one of the first was able to show that such an efficient method of DNA analysis as the next-generation sequencing (NGS), can be directly, without
