Smartphone microscope offers cost-effective DNA sequencing and genetic mutation analysis

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”

Soft Robot helps the Heart beat

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”

Renewable Diesel – MIT Engineers program Yeast to convert Plant Sugars into Oils

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”

Vader Systems creates Liquid Metal 3-D Printer for manufacturing

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.
