In the Lower Silesian Wilderness , archaeologists have found remnants of the castle belonging to the Piast dynasty prince Bolek II the Small (died in 1368) - the last independent Piast prince in Silesia.
Freezing, drying, pasteurising? Researchers are still looking for new, better ways to keep food from spoiling. One of them is using electric field and ultrasound. A field with appropriate parameters can kill bacteria, change the taste of product such as juice, extract nutrients from vegetables.
Researchers studying the meson decay in the LHCb experiment at CERN had hoped to find a crack in the current theory of the structure of matter - the Standard Model. Meanwhile - as if out of spite - the theory has again turned out to be surprisingly consistent with the experiment.
One way to secure the future of European bison is to obtain the embryo of this animal in vitro. Researchers from SGGW-WULS in Warsaw were first in the world to announce that they had succeeded to do that.
Preliminary research results suggest that people living 2000 years ago in the territories of today's Poland were not an isolated group; it does not appear that their DNA was significantly different from the DNA of populations living in the same period in western Europe - report researchers from Poznań, working on the genetic "portrait" of our ancestors.
In medical diagnostics, the importance of genetic code assays is growing day by day and modern molecular biology could not do without it. Current DNA analysis techniques, however, are far from perfect. Working on a record high speed genetic research tool Curiosity Diagnostics, a spin-off company of the Warsaw Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences and part of the Scope Fluidics group, has developed a new method of DNA analysis, combining the key advantages of the two c
Printed 3D models of the heart or blood vessels are being made at the Laboratory of Individual Medical Implants in Bionanopark in Łódź. Models reflect the heart of a particular patient in detail and help the cardiac surgeons prepare for complicated surgeries.
Bison embryo obtained with in vitro method, first in the case of this species, has been obtained by scientists from the Warsaw University of Life Sciences. The achievement was announced on Sunday by the spokeswoman for the State Forests that funded the study.
Silesian scientists have developed an antibacterial material for 3D printing. With 3D printers, it can be used to create medical devices or implants, on which bacteria will not grow. The invention has recently been commercialised.
So far, only two companies in the world have manufactured electron accelerators for intraoperative radiotherapy, used mainly in breast cancer. Now the new generation equipment has been developed by Polish researchers, says project leader Dr. Agnieszka Syntfeld-Każuch.
