In particular embodiments there are methods of detecting methylatable regions in genomic sequences.
The present invention relates to a device and a method for building a 3D object by mixing a bioink solution, a buffer solution capable of inducing gelation of the bioink solution and a dispersion containing micro and/or nanoparticles, and ejecting the formed hydrogel out of a nozzle. The present invention further relates to a method of obtaining a hydrogel.
Embodiments of the present disclosure describe non-canonical amino acids characterized by the formula A—L—B, where A is an amino acid, L is a linker, and B is a biotin or a biotin-analog group. Embodiments describe translation systems comprising an orthogonal tRNA; an orthogonal aminoacyl-tRNA-synthetase, and a non- canonical amino acid with a biotin-containing side-chain or biotin-analog-containing side-chain; wherein the O-RS preferentially aminoacylates the O-tRNA with the non- canonical amino acid; wherein the non-canonical amino acid is incorporated into a protein at a specific site during translation

Embodiments include a logic gate system comprising a first micro-cantilever beam arranged in parallel to a second micro-cantilever beam in which a length of the first micro- cantilever beam is shorter than a length of the second micro-cantilever beam. The first micro-cantilever beam is adjacent to the second micro-cantilever beam and the first micro-cantilever beam is coupled to an input DC bias voltage source to the logic gate system. The second micro-cantilever beam is coupled to an input AC voltage signal that dynamically sets a logic operation of the logic gate system by at least changing an operating resonance frequency for one or more of the first micro-cantilever beam and the second micro-cantilever beam.
In accordance with the present disclosure, one embodiment includes a memristor that is caused to be in a particular resistance state by a voltage applied across terminals of the memristor. A first logical input and a second logical input that are below a threshold voltage of the memristor are applied to a first terminal of the memristor. A first control input and a second control input are applied to a second terminal of the memristor. A logical output is determined based on a resistance state of the memristor.
The present invention relates to a method and system for dynamically analyzing, determining, predicting and displaying ranked suitable heterologous biosynthesis pathways for a specified host. The present invention addresses the problem of finding suitable pathways for the endogenous metabolism of a host organism because the efficacy of heterologous biosynthesis is affected by competing endogenous pathways. The present invention is called MRE (Metabolic Route Explorer), and it was conceived and developed to systematically and dynamically search for, determine, analyze, and display promising heterologous pathways while considering competing endogenous reactions in a given host organism.
A system and method for inspecting a surface of a structure for defects includes an inspection apparatus having a heating device for heating a section of the surface of the structure, an infrared camera for receiving infrared radiation from the surface in response to heating, a controller configured to generate thermographs from the received infrared radiation, and a communication device. A training system includes an expert system module configured to determine correlations between a set of thermographs generated by a thermal simulation of modeled structural elements with defects, and parameters of the modeled structural elements. A computer system communicatively coupled to the training system and the inspection apparatus, is adapted to receive thermographs received from the inspection apparatus and to detect quantitative parameters of defects in the structure using the correlations obtained from the training system.
Embodiments of the present disclosure describe a treated iron ore catalyst. Embodiments of the present disclosure further describe a method of preparing a treated iron ore catalyst comprising dehydrating an iron ore, milling the iron ore to a selected particle size, and reducing the iron ore to form a treated iron ore catalyst. Another embodiment of the present disclosure is a method of using a treated iron ore catalyst comprising contacting a feed gas with a treated iron ore catalyst to produce hydrogen and graphene.
