Detecting infections and diseases through an individual's breath
Researchers at Sandia National Laboratories have designed a organic compounds detector to diagnose diseases and infections from a patient?s breath at the point-of-care. This system is sensitive enough to detect trace levels of analytes (parts per billion to parts per trillion range), making it possible to detect specific VOCs released by a pathogen. https://app.in-part.com/login?returnTo=/articles/9Lx0Rq1Ygv26

Magda is a modern platform built to power a new generation of data portals. Magda helps government agencies quickly and easily find, share and publish their datasets, so that the public can benefit from more effective and open policy-making and governance. This idea is led by Data 61 at the CSIRO. http://www.oninnovation.com.au/en/ON-teams/ON-Tribe/Prime5/Sydney

The end to the spread of the Zika virus
Scientists from the CSIRO and the University of California, San Diego have vaccinated mosquitoes to be resistant to spreading the Zika virus. They engineered a gene cluster and injected it into mosquito embryos. These injected mosquitoes were unable to pick up the Zika virus and hence were unable to spread it. https://blog.csiro.au/latest-buzz-about-zika-resistant-mozzies
