'Smart' Shirt Keeps Tabs on the Heart

There's no need to don uncomfortable smartwatches or chest straps to monitor your heart if your comfy shirt can do a better job. That's the idea behind "smart clothing" developed by a university lab, which employed its conductive nanotube thread to weave functionality into regular apparel.

CRISPR Tech Targets Human Genome's Complex Code

Finding a needle in a haystack is hard enough. But try finding a specific molecule on the needle. Researchers have achieved something of the sort with a new genome editing tool that targets the supporting players in a cell's nucleus that package DNA and aid gene expression. Their work opens the door to new therapies for cancer and other diseases.

Anti-Bacterial Graphene Face Masks

Face masks have become an important tool in fighting against the COVID-19 pandemic. However, improper use or disposal of masks may lead to "secondary transmission". A research team has successfully produced graphene masks with an anti-bacterial efficiency of 80%, which can be enhanced to almost 100% with exposure to sunlight for around 10 minutes.
