This week, we bring research-based stories on: how evolution and environment affect the 'dispersal syndrome' of fruit flies, the five regions of the earth based on tropical forest cover, behavior of stars in the middle of the Milky Way, evolution of underground geysers and using nanotechnology along with antibiotics to kill drug resistant bacteria. In our News section, read about some interesting research from Indian institutes. Read research-related stories that appeared in other media in our Research Beat section. We also bring you some notable events and talks that might be of interest to you.
Do you have a new publication or have come across one that is interesting from any institution in India that requires to be communicated, please let us know. If there is any popular science event/talk, which requires wider outreach please share it with us. We also welcome your feedback / suggestions / criticisms. You may write to us at email@example.com.
