  • Bioinformatics is helping to defeat the SARS-CoV-2 virus responsible for COVID-19. To understand how, it is useful to know a little more about this discipline, which is responsible for processing data from the field of biology by applying computer science. In other words, just as linguists study the patterns of language to preserve them, bioinformaticians study the patterns of DNA sequences and proteins to protect our health.

  • Groundwater is the natural water stored beneath the Earth's surface and it is essential because it supplies a third of the world's population. As with other of our planet's elements, it also finds itself under threat from contamination.

If you want to know more, such as what types of radiation there are and what their harmful effects on health are, especially on the skin in summer, read on.
