Using artificial intelligence to monitor the environment

UNIGE researchers have developed an approach that combines genomics and machine learning tools to explore the microbial biodiversity of ecosystems. Microorganisms perform key functions in ecosystems and their diversity reflects the health of their environment. However, they are still largely under-exploited in current biomonitoring programs because they are difficult to identify. Researchers from the University

A single drop of blood is enough to diagnose mild traumatic brain injury

UNIGE researchers have developed a portable device capable of diagnosing within ten minutes mild traumatic brain injury, using a single drop of blood. Every year in Europe, three million people are admitted into hospitals for suspected mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) cases. Yet 90% of these patients will be able to return home safely, as

Ytterbium: The quantum memory of tomorrow

Researchers from UNIGE, working closely with CNRS (France), have discovered a new material that can be used to store and repeat the quantum signal rapidly – could this be the beginning of a global quantum network? Quantum communication and cryptography are the future of high-security communication. But many challenges lie ahead before a worldwide quantum

Spider silk could be the basis for a new kind of vaccine delivery vehicle

By successfully encapsulating a vaccine into a spider silk microparticle, Swiss and German researchers have discovered a novel technique that will help fight cancer and certain infectious diseases. To fight cancer, researchers increasingly use vaccines that stimulate the immune system to identify and destroy tumour cells. However, the desired immune response is is not always

A non-flammable solid sodium battery can also store more energy

Researchers from Empa and the University of Geneva have developed an initial prototype of a solid sodium battery with the potential to store extra energy. Phones, laptops, electric cars – batteries are everywhere. And to meet the expectations of today’s consumers, these batteries are increasingly light, more powerful and designed to last longer. Currently the

Long-distance quantum communication via a network of crystals

Quantum physic can guarantee that a message has not be intercepted before reaching its destination. Thanks to the laws of quantum physic, a particle of light – a photon – can be in two distinct states simultaneously, comparable to a coin thrown in the air, which is virtually both head and tail before reaching the

A new random numbers generator based on the principles of quantum physics should give hackers a hard time

Whenever we need to communicate in secret, a cryptographic key is needed. For this key to work, it must consist of numbers chosen at random without any structure – just the opposite of using the birthdate of our favourite pet. But, for a human, it is extremely difficult to choose without creating any bias, even

New study: The myth of mineral resource exhaustion

Recent articles have declared that deposits of mineral raw materials (copper, zinc, etc.) will be exhausted within a few decades. An international team, including the University of Geneva (UNIGE), Switzerland, has shown that this is incorrect and that the resources of most mineral commodities are sufficient to meet the growing demand from industrialization and future

Project Uses Crowdsourced Computing to Improve Water Filtration

Nearly 800 million people worldwide don’t have access to safe drinking water, and some 2.5 billion people live in precariously unsanitary conditions, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Together, unsafe drinking water and the inadequate supply of water for hygiene purposes contribute to almost 90% of all deaths from diarrheal diseases —
