The method of 3D fluorescence spectroscopy combined with convolutional neural network (CNN) was developed to identify the counterfeit sesame oil. AlexNet, a pre-trained CNN architecture, was transferred to extract spectral characteristics. Then these features extracted by AlexNet were used as the input of the support vector machine (SVM) to determine whether the sample was counterfeit and its ingredients simultaneously, and both the accuracy were 100%. According to different counterfeit ingredients, these features extracted by AlexNet were used as the input of partial least squares (PLS) to predict the volume percentage concentration of sesame oil essence. There was a good linear relationship between the predicted and actual values of the three sets of counterfeit samples (R2 > 0.99), and the root mean square error of prediction (RMSEP) values were 0.99%, 2.20% and 1.64%, respectively. The results confirmed the validity of this novel method in sesame oil identification.

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.

Neural Activity: Imaging

Imaging of neural activity in vivo has developed rapidly recently with the advancement of fluorescence microscopy, including new applications using miniaturized microscopes (miniscopes). This feed follows the progress in this growing field.

The Tendon Seed Network

Tendons are rich in the extracellular matrix and are abundant throughout the body providing essential roles including structure and mobility. The transcriptome of tendons is being compiled to understand the micro-anatomical functioning of tendons. Discover the latest research pertaining to the Tendon Seed Network here.

Myocardial Stunning

Myocardial stunning is a mechanical dysfunction that persists after reperfusion of previously ischemic tissue in the absence of irreversible damage including myocardial necrosis. Here is the latest research.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.


Incretins are metabolic hormones that stimulate a decrease in glucose levels in the blood and they have been implicated in glycemic regulation in the remission phase of type 1 diabetes. Here is the latest research.

Long COVID-19

“Long Covid-19” describes illness in patients who are reporting long-lasting effects of the SARS-CoV-19 infection, often long after they have recovered from acute Covid-19. Ongoing health issues often reported include low exercise tolerance and breathing difficulties, chronic tiredness, and mental health problems such as post-traumatic stress disorder and depression. This feed follows the latest research into Long Covid.
