India has consistently been climbing up its Global Innovation Index (GII) rankings since 2015, but the country still has to improve on many indicators to catch up with China and others in the list of 126 nations.

Brian Gitta, 24, has reportedly become the first Ugandan to win the prestigious Africa Prize for Engineering Innovation, after he invented a device which tests malaria without drawing blood.

The existence of a chemosynthetic subseafloor biosphere was immediately recognized when deep-sea hot springs were discovered in 1977. However, quantifying how much new carbon is fixed in this environment has remained elusive. In this study, we incubated natural subseafloor communities under in situ pressure/temperature and measured their chemosynthetic growth efficiency and metabolic rates. Combining these data with fluid flux and in situ chemical measurements, we derived empirical constraints on chemosynthetic activity in the natural environment.
