Understanding the genetics of melanoma susceptibility: many roads lead to DNA repair

Repair of the damage caused by mutagens such as UV and reactive oxygen species is vital to prevent cancer and premature aging and accordingly cells have developed a suite of intricate and specific DNA repair pathways. Loss or abnormal function of components of these pathways lead to cancer pre-disposition syndromes for example breast cancer in individuals carrying mutations in the BRCA1 or BRCA2 genes. Understanding the complexities of these DNA repair pathways is vital to efforts aimed at preventing or …

Degradation-conscious charging of lithium-ion batteries

The adoption of electric vehicles and grid storage systems by the present day consumers has been phenomenal. The most critical issue with the lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery is how to manage its degradation.Understanding battery degradation mechanisms and the development of charging strategies to optimally manage battery degradation is very important. There are a number of important issues that need to be addressed carefully, such as thermo-electrochemical modelling of large battery packs and fast charging protocols.
