Stilla Technologies révolutionne les diagnostics médicaux - Les Echos. Turning big promises with 'big data' in agriculture into farmer and consumer benefits. Making biotechnology interactive with games, remote-control labs. In his third and most far-reaching project, Riedel-Kruse and his team created a robotic biology lab capable of carrying out remote-controlled experiments.
“We call these robots Biotic Processing Units, or BPUs,” said Zahid Hossain, the Stanford doctoral student who worked with Riedel-Kruse on this third project. Creation of a remote lab. 6 Things the Digital Revolution already Disrupted in the Biotech Industry - Labiotech.eu. 2 weeks ago, I was at NOAH15 in Berlin, one of the biggest European events on Digital, gathering key opinion leaders such as Eric Schmidt from Google or Ariana Huffington, founder of the Huffington Post.
They all talked about the impact of the recent digital wave, internet and the post-pc area on different industries. Biotech wasn’t represented – as, e-health doesn’t quite encompass my definition of Biotech – and by listening to the speakers, I asked myself, what has the digital wave disrupted in the Biotech industry? Review: the Emerging Field of Bioluminescence - Labiotech.eu. Thanks to the synthetic biology revolution, bioluminescence is now moving from a curious natural trait to an interesting research field that could soon arrive to the market.
Bioluminescence’s impulsors aim at replacing electric lighting. Sounds good, but which are the most advanced projects right now? Will bioluminescence really have an impact on the lighting market and when? After the Biofuel Fail, Does Synthetic Biology Have a Future? Last month, Newsweek tweeted: "Synbio was going to save the world.
Now it's being used to make vanilla flavoring. " Synthetic biology (synbio), for the uninitiated, uses organisms and designs from nature to engineer new tools. Bientôt de l'essence fabriquée à partir de végétaux ? Et si demain nos voitures roulaient grâce à nos déchets issus des tontes de pelouse, du taillage des haies ou des résidus agricoles ou forestiers ?
C'est ce qu'espère l'entreprise champenoise Global Bioenergies. Cette dernière a mis au point un procédé permettant de transformer la matière végétale en isobutène. Une molécule clef de l'industrie pétrochimique à partir de laquelle il est possible de fabriquer de nombreux composés chimiques et notamment des additifs pour carburants, mais aussi du kérosène, des lubrifiants. Certains de ses composants entrent aussi dans la fabrication du plexiglas, des caoutchoucs et des peintures acryliques. Arbre des produits dérivés de l'Isobutène. "L’isooctane est un additif actuellement utilisé pour améliorer la qualité de l’essence et qui pourrait également servir de carburant à part entière" explique l'entreprise sur son site. Présentation de l'unité de traitement des végétaux. OGM. OpenPlant: Open Technologies for Plant Synthetic Biology - SynBioBeta. Why is Plant Synthetic Biology Important?
Plant synthetic biology has great potential to improve sustainable bioproduction of globally important products; from foodstuffs to fibres to drugs. Advantages of plants over engineered microbes include their worldwide cultivation, their harvest on a giga-tonne scale and the existing precedent for genetically modified crops in many parts of the world. In addition to these applied benefits, plants raise interesting scientific questions and technical challenges around engineering pathways and interactions in multi-cellular, differentiating and developing organisms, adding complexity to current microbial experiments. Plant synthetic biology is a young field and requires the development of tools and techniques to deal with additional complexity, such as improved genome editing, DNA synthesis and assembly at chromosomal or genomic scales.

The Acceleration of Acceleration: How The Future Is Arriving Far Faster Than Expected This article co-written with Ken Goffman.
2045 Initiative. The 2045 Initiative is a nonprofit organization that develops a network and community of researchers in the field of life extension.  It was founded by Russian entrepreneur Dmitry Itskov, in February 2011 with the participation of Russian specialists in the field of neural interfaces, robotics, artificial organs and systems.
The main goal of the 2045 Initiative, as stated on site, is "to create technologies enabling the transfer of an individual’s personality to a more advanced non-biological carrier, and extending life, including to the point of immortality. We devote particular attention to enabling the fullest possible dialogue between the world’s major spiritual traditions, science and society".

F. News Highlights:Holiday Stress May Up the Need for Reward but Don’t Expect Any Joy. Feeling stressed may prompt you to go to great lengths to satisfy an urge for a drink or sweets, but you’re not likely to enjoy the indulgence any more than someone who is not stressed and has the same treat just for pleasure, according to a study (“Stress Increases Cue-Triggered `Wanting” for Sweet Reward in Humans”) published in the Journal of Experimental Psychology: Animal Learning and Cognition.
