Just like an alphabet is made up of individual letters, DNA is composed of chemical bases. And in the same way that letters must be placed in a specific order to form words and sentences, the sequence of chemical bases is incredibly important in how DNA functions and codes our lives. One reason scientists pay … Continue reading “Smartphone microscope offers cost-effective DNA sequencing and genetic mutation analysis”
Harvard University and Boston Children’s Hospital researchers have developed a customizable soft robot that fits around a heart and helps it beat, potentially opening new treatment options for people suffering from heart failure. The soft robotic sleeve twists and compresses in synch with a beating heart, augmenting cardiovascular functions weakened by heart failure. Unlike currently … Continue reading “Soft Robot helps the Heart beat”

KUBO accelerates learning in coding, mathematics, language, and music through its TagTile programming language, which helps pre-school and primary school children explore and understand new concepts … Continue reading “KUBO Robot teaches Coding, Language and Maths to Kids in simple way”
MIT engineers have genetically reprogrammed a strain of yeast so that it converts sugars to fats much more efficiently, an advance that could make possible the renewable production of high-energy fuels such as diesel. The researchers modified the metabolic pathways of yeast that naturally produce large quantities of lipids, to make them about 30 percent … Continue reading “Renewable Diesel – MIT Engineers program Yeast to convert Plant Sugars into Oils”
A father and son team in the START-UP NY program have invented a liquid metal printing machine that could represent a significant transformation in manufacturing. Their company named “Vader System” has created a machine that prints three-dimensional objects using liquid metal. Engineering faculty and students of University at Buffalo work closely with this company.
