Scientists Reveal the Water Column of the Yamal Lakes Can Be a Microbial Filter

Scientists from the Winogradsky Institute of Microbiology RAS, RUDN University, St. Petersburg State University and the Tyumen Scientific Centre SB RAS studied the microbial communities from several lakes of the Yamal Peninsula. It turned out that methanotrophs (bacteria that use methane as a source of energy) consume methane more actively in the deep mature lakes of the peninsula than in small thermokarst lakes. In this regard, methane emissions into the atmosphere from the surface of deep lakes are low, and only small (relatively younger thermokarst lakes with constitutional ground ice) can make a significant contribution to methane emissions in the north of Western Siberia. Thus, bacteria perform an important function for the climate balance — they reduce the emission of methane into the atmosphere.

The new protocol will allow to obtain bioactive compounds bypassing by-products

Chemists from Russia and the USA have improved the method of creating bioactive indole-acetonitrile compounds. Previously, in the course of their synthesis, by-products were obtained — a new method allows them to be avoided. This increases the yield of the final product to 81%.

Seminar “Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) powers the future of 5G/6G networks”
With the recent advances in the telecommunication industry, the main requirements of next generation systems become challenges. Unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), is one of the main an-nounced use cases of the fifth generation (5G) cellular system and is announced as an enabler of the six generation (6G) cellular system. UAVs have many applications in varying fields such real-time surveillance, assisting network coverage in 5G systems, and remote sensing applica-tions.
