Feasibility of using trash and straw as a thermal insulator

, : Feasibility of using trash and straw as a thermal insulator. Biological Wastes 33(1): 63-66

Sugarcane trash, paddy straw and wheat straw are the main farm by-products and are mostly underutilized. A large portion of these farm products goes to waste. These by-products could be successfully utilized as thermal insulators, if used in a high-density, compressed wafer-form.

Apoptosis is a tightly coordinated cell death program that damages mitochondria, DNA, proteins, and membrane lipids. Little is known about the fate of RNA as cells die. Here, we show that mRNAs, but not noncoding RNAs, are rapidly and globally deg...
