SibFU scientists developed a device for monitoring the work of the human heart

Scientists at Siberian Federal University have developed a cardiac monitor that allows of a lengthy and continous monitoring of the functioning of the cardiovascular and circulatory system and lungs and also makes a prompt detection of heart diseases like arrhythmia possible. TASS Science portal has published an article about the scientists' findings.

The digital map will make the prediction of air pollution level possible

SibFU scientists have developed a digital terrain model of the city of Krasnoyarsk and its larger metropolitan area. It can predict the spread of emergency situations of anthropogenic origin and natural disasters. The model will make it possible for experts to assess the potential of the air basin over Krasnoyarsk (the volume of the atmosphere, which determines the conditions for the distribution of pollutants under various meteorological conditions).

SibFU Biophysicists Simulated the Intracellular Environment of a Luminescent Bacteria Cell

A team from the Institute of Fundamental Biology and Biotechnology of SFU used glycerol and sucrose to simulate the intracellular environment of luminescent bacteria and carried out a number of enzymatic reactions in it. The work will help develop fragments of metabolic chains with different lengths and study fermentative reactions in the conditions close to intracellular. The article of the scientists was published in the Molecular Catalysis journal.

SibFU scientists proposed universal test systems based on modified sorbents

Young scientists of the Siberian Federal University have proposed using layer-by-layer modified sorbents to determine environmental pollutants. The developed method will allow to improve the systems monitoring and analyzing the environmental situation (for instance in Krasnoyarsk krai) and increase the effectiveness of dealing with the causes of environmental disasters.

Russian Scientists to Enhance Crop Resistance to Fungal Diseases

A group of scientists from the Siberian Federal University (SibFU) and the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences’ Biophysics Institute are currently working on making fungicides intended to be used for combating fusarium disease more efficient, said the SibFU press service representative in an interview with Sputnik.
