Facilitating Biodigester Biogas Production Using a Rumination Model of Bos taurus

Abstract In order to develop resource and time efficient methods of biogas production as an energy source, the biodigestion procedure physically and chemically modified the biodigestion process to mimic the rumination process of Bos taurus. The experimental protocol used manure slurry and the independent variables of a varying mixing times and digestive enzymes to produce biogases. The results demonstrated significant increases in biogas production with both mixing time variation and enzyme additives to manure slurry. […]

Zika Virus: Novel Detection Techniques and Treatment

Abstract The United States is one of the countries affected by this disease, which cause microcephaly in newborns. In order to stop the spread, new novel detection techniques were developed such as RT-Lamp and the RT-PCR and treatments as Emricasan, Niclosamide and CDK, these drugs can help prevent Zika virus duplication. Therefore, with these new advancements in technology and medicine the Zika will have a much slimmer chance of creating chaos in today’s society. Introduction […]
