India (Bhārat), aka Republic of India (Bhārat Gaṇarājya) constitutes a mosaic of paradoxes and contradictions starting with the existence of gigantic socio-economic disparities which are in sharp contrast with the spectacular technological development in most productive sectors.
Such contradictions reflect significant measurement discrepancies which, in India's case, could be on the order of hundreds of millions of people.
Furthermore, there is the problem of Islamic terrorists, who are trained abroad and find easy fuel in the contradictions within it.
Finally, there’s agriculture which, by some estimates, accounts for 90% of India’s water consumption. Farmers meet irrigation demands by indiscriminately extracting groundwater, which some say accounts for a quarter of the world’s groundwater usage.

Hace una semana lanzé un HILO en el que explicaba los orígenes e información básica para entender las herramientas #CRISPR. Gracias a @jm_alarcon ese HILO está recogido en esta web:… Hoy continuaré con otro en el que hablaré de las aplicaciones. Dentro HILO
Las herramientas #CRISPR nos han cambiado tanto la vida a los investigadores de ciencias de la vida que prácticamente suelo decir que pronto solamente habrá dos tipos de laboratorio: (1) los que YA están usando CRISPR en sus experimentos y (2) los que VAN a usar CRISPR. Y ya está
Lo que está ocurriendo con las #CRISPR y la edición genética de alguna manera recuerda a lo que ocurrió a finales de los años 80, cuando apareció y se instaló la técnica de amplificación del ADN #PCR (reacción de la polimerasa en cadena) que está presente hoy en todas partes.
