Mangaluru, Sept 17: In order to check damages to people living along the coastal areas, the state government would come out with a permanent solution to prevent sea erosion, Infrastructure Development Department, Ports and Inland Fisheries Principal Secretary and Maritime Board Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Kapil Mohan told the media here.

The Principal Secretary, who took stock of the ongoing works to prevent sea erosion on Wednesday, said using technology, a permanent solution against sea erosion would be implemented.

He further said that such a work has been taken up at Mukkacharry in Ullal, which did not witness any sea erosion.

He also inspected the ADB-funded 635 metres and 10 metres long wall being constructed at a total cost of Rs 18.02 crore at Mukkacherry in Ullal.

Meanwhile, Mr Mohan instructed the officials to ensure that high quality was maintained in the ongoing works. With such walls being planned in most places, the problem of sea erosion along the coast could be reduced, he stated.

Abu Dhabi, Sept 15: A Mangaluru-origin youth is part of an international research team that has developed a tool to keep track of the mutations of the Covid-19 virus.

Elston Neil D'Souza, the youngest member of the team led by University of Melbourne associate professor David Ascher, helped create the tool called Covid-3D, which harnesses genomic and protein information about the virus. He was a former resident of Abu Dhabi.

The changing structures of the virus make it challenging for experts to develop drugs and vaccines; so by monitoring these mutations, Covid-3D becomes an important instrument in the fight against the pandemic.

During the research, D'Souza and his team analysed more than 120,000 samples of the novel coronavirus from infected patients globally. D'Souza, with eight others, co-authored the research paper, which has been peer reviewed and published in the scientific journal 'Nature Genetics'.

"With the large amounts of data collected and shared across the world, this pandemic has seen the use of innovative techniques such as genomic sequencing, machine learning and data-sharing. We developed Covid-3D using this vast amount of data," said D'Souza, an alumnus of Adnoc Schools, Ruwais. He has finished his degree in computational biology at the University of Melbourne and he is now doing another course.

"This tool is an open and freely accessible Web resource that can help researchers around the world."

D'Souza graduated from Adnoc Schools in 2016 and he attributes a large part of this success to the quality education he received in the Capital. "I am grateful for the many opportunities to learn and grow when I was a science student at Adnoc Schools. I thank the UAE for showing me the importance of working hard with a diverse group of individuals," the 22-year-old added. His parents are still residing in Ruwais, Abu Dhabi.
