Biotech & Global Pestilence

The threat of germ warfare has brought to the forefront long-forgotten diseases like plague, anthrax, and smallpox. Recent television news programs have highlighted secret projects in the former Soviet Union to develop antibiotic-resistant strains of genetically engineered viruses and bacteria.

Gene That Controls the Birth of Neurons Discovered - Scientists at A*STAR’s Genome Institute of Singapore (GIS) have discovered an unusual gene that controls the generation of neurons. This important finding is crucial in understanding serious diseases of the brain such as Alzheimer’s disease, the researchers say.

Mind Meld? Scientist Uses His Brain to Control Another Guy’s Finger - The world of mind-control zombie armies just got a little closer: Scientists say they’ve hooked up one person’s brain to the Internet, to control the finger of another person playing a video game.

Tech Bringing Immortality Closer, Google Expert Says - “The life expectancy was 20 years of age, 1,000 years ago. … We doubled it in 200 years. This will go into high gear within 10 to 20 years from now—probably less than 15, we will be reaching that tipping point where we add more time than has gone by because of scientific progress,” said Ray Kurzweil. “Somewhere between 10 and 20 years, there is going to be tremendous transformation of health and medicine.”

Scientists Develop an Advanced Biological Computer - Technion scientists developed and constructed a molecular transducer, which is an advanced computing machine. This molecular computer was built entirely of biomolecules, such as DNA and enzymes that can manipulate genetic codes. This unprecedented device can compute iteratively, namely, it uses the output as a new input for subsequent computations.

Tiny Robot Flies Like A Fly - A robot as small as a housefly has managed the delicate task of flying and hovering the way the actual insects do. “This is a major engineering breakthrough, 15 years in the making,” says electrical engineer Ronald Fearing, who works on robotic flies at the University of California, Berkeley. The device uses layers of ultrathin materials that can make its wings flap 120 times a second, which is on a par with a housefly’s flapping rate. This “required tremendous innovation in design and fabrication techniques,” he adds.
