Using machine learning to analyze data on nearly 600,000 pregnancies, researchers devised an algorithm that identified nine parameters – out of more than 2,000 analyzed – that can predict which women are at risk of gestational diabetes. The parameters …
Weizmann Institute scientists created a decoy molecule that successfully recruits the immune system to fight arenaviruses. It also appears to be heat-resistant and stable, meaning it could be delivered to the remote areas where these diseases are endemic.
Weizmann Institute scientists have converted bacteria to consume CO2 – basically, to live on air – instead of sugar. Such bacteria may contribute to new, carbon-efficient technologies, from food production to green fuels.
Research by the Weizmann Institute of Science’s Prof. Yardena Samuels shows that heterogeneity in melanoma tumors prevents effective immune responses
Prof. Rafael Malach’s lab has revealed a neuronal mechanism central to free recall. Working with people hospitalized with epilepsy who had implanted electrodes, the team recorded, for the first time, “hippocampal ripples” – synchronized bursts of activ…
Profs. Eran Elinav and Eran Segal at the Weizmann Institute of Science have isolated a molecule that may be under-produced in the guts of ALS patients
When immune cells and bacteria meet, the outcome is decided fairly quickly – including whether the bacteria will lie dormant, as in diseases like tuberculosis. Now, Weizmann Institute scientists have developed an algorithm that predicts how the immune …
Two Weizmann Institute scientists, Profs. Eran Elinav and Eran Segal, have revealed that our gut microbes’ relationship with probiotics may not be as healthy as we think
Part of NASA’s historic Juno mission to Jupiter, the Weizmann Institute’s Prof. Yohai Kaspi and colleagues have revealed that the depth of Jupiter’s winds is far greater than expected.
Weizmann Institute scientists bring together physics and biology to create a new model of brain development.
