1. The Third Russian Conference “Graphene: Molecule and 2D Crystal” was held in Novosibirsk. The event was supported by Novosibirsk State University, institutes of the SB RAS, the Russian Foundation for Basic Research, the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of the Russian Federation. For five days scientists were exchanging new ideas in the study of carbon compounds.



2. Scientists at the Institute of Bioorganic Chemistry and the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (MIPT) proved that lung carcinoma (cancer) cells can be destroyed if neuroreceptors are affected with a certain type of protein.



3. Molecular biologists and mathematicians from Skoltech, Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology and their colleagues from India have created a technique that allows you to create machine learning systems that can predict which mutations in a molecule of a particular protein will be harmful.



4. Russian scientists have developed the world's first free software for 3D visualization and analysis of biomaterials that are involved in tissue regeneration – Quanfima. The program allows scientists around the world to advance this process.



5. Scientists from St. Petersburg State University, the Institute of Cellular and Intracellular Symbiosis of the Ural Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences, the Universities of Pisa and Florence presented the results of a study of the microbiome of specific type of infusoria.



6. Scientists of the South Ural State University together with colleagues from the KurnakovInstitute of General Inorganic Chemistry RAS, the Scientific and Practical Center for Materials Science of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus, and the Institute of Physics of the Polish Academy of Sciences created a layered multiferroic made of metal and ceramics. In the future, this material can be used to manufacture new generation sensors.
