New Nanofabrication Technique Can Speed Up DNA Sequencing

The laborious, uneconomical process of sequencing DNA molecules - a technology used to identify, diagnose, and perhaps find treatments for diseases - could become much faster and cheaper thanks to a new nanofabrication technique that exploits nano-sized air-gaps, or nanocracks, in electrically conductive materials. A doctoral student in Micro and Nanosystems at KTH, Valentin [...]

Who owns what in outer space?

In 2015 Congress passed a law to legalise mining in outer space—the first of its kind in the world. Firms that some day manage to mine asteroids for resources like water or precious metals would henceforth be allowed to own, process, and sell anything harvested. The nascent space-mining industry was thrilled. The boss of [...]

Public, permissionless blockchains and the EU’s GDPR: The coming clash between technology and the law?

From a blog by VALID advisor Christian Sillaber, Senior Researcher on IT-Security The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into effect on May 25, 2018. It is already clear that the new law, which is in many respects ground-breaking, is struggling to keep up with the pace of technological change. If this [...]

Women in Tech 2018: What the Statistics Tell Us

From an article by Ludmila Morozova-Buss on TechNative: Women have played a role in computer technology since its inception. Many credit Ava Lovelace as the first computer programmer, in a time before computers even existed, and women from Grace Hopper to the women who worked with Alan Turing at Bletchley Park were key in the [...]

Minimalist biostructures designed to create nanomaterials

Researchers of the Institute of Biotechnology and Biomedicine (IBB-UAB) have generated four peptides, molecules smaller than proteins, capable of self-assembling in a controlled manner to form nanomaterials. The research, published in the journal ACS Nano, was conducted by Salvador Ventura, Marta Díaz Caballero and Susanna Navarro (IBB-UAB), and included the collaboration of Isabel Fuentes [...]

Squeezing light at the nanoscale

Researchers at the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) have developed a new technique to squeeze infrared light into ultra-confined spaces, generating an intense, nanoscale antenna that could be used to detect single biomolecules. The researchers harnessed the power of polaritons, particles that blur the distinction between light and [...]

Breakthrough in controlling DNA-based robots

Researchers have devised a magnetic control system to make tiny DNA-based robots move on demand -- and much faster than recently possible. In the journal Nature Communications, Carlos Castro and Ratnasingham Sooryakumar and their colleagues from The Ohio State University report that the control system reduced the response time of prototype nano-robot components from [...]
