This week, in the featured story, read the first of a series that talks about the neurotoxins found in the cone snails. In addition, we bring research-based stories on: neurodevelopmental disorder, India’s rising population, Palaeontologists from India have discovered fossil evidence of a hominid species, and how cells maintain their shapes in spite of expelling material from their membrane. In our News section, read about some interesting research stories. 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.
