A study detailing the processes that control mole size may help scientists find new ways to prevent skin cancer from growing — ScienceDaily

Moles stop growing when they reach a certain size due to normal interactions between cells, despite having cancer-associated gene mutations, says a new study published today in eLife.

The findings in mice could help scientists develop new ways to prevent skin cancer growth that take advantage of the normal mechanisms that control cell growth in the body.

Mutations that activate the protein made by the BRAF gene are believed to contribute to the development of skin cancer. However, recent studies have shown that these mutations do not often cause skin cancer, but instead result in the formation of completely harmless pigmented moles on the skin. In fact, 90% of moles have these cancer-linked mutations but never go on to form tumours. “Exploring why moles stop growing might lead us to a better understanding of what goes wrong in skin cancer,” says lead author Roland Ruiz-Vega, a postdoctoral researcher at

As Instagram turns 10, influence still growing

The photo and video sharing app has more than 1 billion users.

This week marks 10 years since the founding of Instagram, the hugely popular social media app that boasts more than a billion users.

Sarah Frier is the author of “No Filter: The Inside Story of Instagram.” She says Instagram’s growth over the last decade, especially after it was acquired by Facebook for $1 billion in 2012, is widespread and easy to see.

“It’s a platform where you can look around you and see the impact of the app, in a way that you can’t as easily see the impact of a Facebook or a Twitter,” Frier said.

One of the most prominent Instagram features is its photo-editing tools: namely, its selection of colorful filters. Frier says the customization that Instagram affords its users has produced millions of eye-catching photos.

Navigating The Growing World Of Analytics

Peter Zornio is CTO for Emerson, a Fortune 200 global technology and engineering company headquartered in St. Louis, Mo.

In the manufacturing world, analytics is a hot topic right now — and for good reason. Manufacturing generates more data than any other sector, and according to McKinsey, analytics has the potential to deliver more than $4 trillion of growth in industrial manufacturing alone. At the same time, in a proprietary survey my company conducted last year, digital leaders in the industrial sector cited new technology such as artificial intelligence (AI) as the top driver for digital transformation.

But with growing buzz can come confusion. It’s estimated there are hundreds of companies supplying products and services, such as analytics, that are driving the Fourth Industrial Revolution — promising performance improvements utilizing everything from machine learning and computer vision to video content recognition and smart robots.

Antimatter Particles Hold Key In Timely Attack Against Growing Tumors

KEY POINTS

  • A timer invented by experts permits PET scanners to attack  cancer cells in their weakest
  • The invention may pave the way to less invasive radiation treatment for cancer patients
  • Inventors hoped the technology can be made more affordable in a decade

Doctors may soon kill cancer tumors with less invasive side effects of radiation treatment. This is after a team of experts designed a scanner that can time the antimatter particles that are significant in detecting the levels of the oxygen concentration in cancer tissues. For years, medical experts have witnessed how low levels of oxygen prevented the timely killing of rapidly growing cancer cells. 

A team of Japanese atomic physicists and nuclear medicine experts designed a timer that can detect the oxygen concentration of tissues growing throughout ta cancer patient’s body. Specifically, the timer permits the positron emission tomography (PET) scanners to know when to attack the
