Abstract Grashhoppers have the jumping ability to move on one place to another place. Other than that, Grasshoppers use the jumping ability to escape from predators. The jumping distance of several grasshopper species is not expected to be the same, this led to the idea to conducting reseach to measure the jumping distance of several grasshopper species. This reasearch was conducted in a closed room with a size of 5 m × 5 m. Grasshopper species measured by jumping distance are Atractomorpha crenulata, Gesonula mundata, Oxya hyla, and Xenocatantops humilis. The selection of these four grasshopper species is estimated to have different jumping distances. The result of the research showed that Oxya hyla have the farthest jumping distance compared to Atractomorpha crenulata, Gesonula mundata, and Xenocatantops humilis. Atractomorpha crenulata has the shortest jumping distance compared to Oxya hyla, Gesonula mundata, and Xenocatantops humilis. This difference in the jumping distance can estimated that Oxya hyla and Gesonula mundata more difficult to catch compared to Atractomorpha crenulata and Xenocatantops humili.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
