Home. Program Description | danm.ucsc.edu. New technologies have profoundly changed contemporary culture and inevitably altered the role of the arts in society. The Digital Arts and New Media MFA Program serves as a center for the development and study of digital media and the cultures that they have helped create. Faculty and students are drawn from a variety of backgrounds, such as the arts, computer engineering, humanities, the sciences, and social sciences, to pursue interdisciplinary artistic and scholarly research and production in the context of a broad examination of digital arts and cultures. The Digital Arts and New Media MFA Program (DANM) is a two-year program organized into four interdependent and equally important pursuits: New Praxis—The term “Praxis” has many meanings, which include “translating ideas into action” and “action and reflection upon the world in order to change it.”
Pedagogy—DANM trains future arts academics through practical experience. Collaboration - A documentary. Collaborative Society | The Journey. Collaborative Society | About. Baessy | Biologigaragen.

Remixing technologies and skills to investigate and design solutions from individual to industrial and environmental scale. You are invited to join our bi-weekly Thursday meet-ups and get involved!
Assay: [wikipedia] An assay is an investigative (analytic) procedure in laboratory medicine, pharmacology, environmental biology, and molecular biology for qualitatively assessing or quantitatively measuring the presence or amount or the functional activity of a target entity (the analyte) which can be a drug or biochemical substance or a cell in an organism or organic sample. What should we measure and monitor: Got something that you’d like to measure ? Share ideas, suggestions and reflections using #Baessy on our maillist, facebook or twitter. First Project and Aim: Measuring Bioethanol during Fermentation OpenSense. Participate & Collaborate Follow: Maker-spaces: Open source collaboration. There are plenty of ‘people out there’ who are bursting with good ideas on new technologies and applications. They want to develop and realize these ideas in collaborative, knowledge-sharing and open source ecosystems.
So, why let yourself being confined by the traditional frameworks of academic or industrial research in a time where insight and connectivity is boosted by digital collaboration platforms, wikis, blogs and social media? In a time where many high-tech components such as sensors and chips can be easily procured at a low cost? The motto of the day is do-it-yourself, as Gernot Abel, Senior Science Manager from Novozymes explains: "We have moved from financial sponsoring to active engagement.

Terry Allen Winograd (born February 24, 1946) is an American professor of computer science at Stanford University, and co-director of the Stanford Human-Computer Interaction Group. He is known within the philosophy of mind and artificial intelligence fields for his work on natural language using the SHRDLU program. Education Winograd grew up in Colorado and graduated from Colorado College in 1966. He wrote SHRDLU as a PhD thesis at MIT in the years from 1968-70.
In making the program Winograd was concerned with the problem of providing a computer with sufficient "understanding" to be able to use natural language. Winograd built a blocks world, restricting the program's intellectual world to a simulated "world of toy blocks". The program could accept commands such as, "Find a block which is taller than the one you are holding and put it into the box" and carry out the requested action using a simulated block-moving arm.

My Daughter's DNA. Father’s genetic quest pays off. Hugh Rienhoff prepared his daughter’s DNA for sequencing at home using second-hand equipment. Hugh Rienhoff says that his nine-year-old daughter, Bea, is “a fire cracker”, “a tomboy” and “a very sassy, impudent girl”. But in a forthcoming research paper, he uses rather different terms, describing her hypertelorism (wide spacing between the eyes) and bifid uvula (a cleft in the tissue that hangs from the back of the palate). Both are probably features of a genetic syndrome that Rienhoff has obsessed over since soon after Bea’s birth in 2003. Unable to put on much muscle mass, Bea wears braces on her skinny legs to steady her on her curled feet. She is otherwise healthy, but Rienhoff has long worried that his daughter’s condition might come with serious heart problems. Rienhoff, a biotech entrepreneur in San Carlos, California, who had trained as a clinical geneticist in the 1980s, went from doctor to doctor looking for a diagnosis.
But questions remained. Personal genomics: His daughter's DNA. Hugh Young Rienhoff Jr. When a Disease is Genetic But Not Inherited: Bea Rienhoff’s Story - DNA Science Blog. Hello there! If you enjoy the content on DNA Science, consider subscribing for future posts via email or RSS feed. Hugh Rienhoff, dad and physician/geneticist, used exome sequencing to find his daughter Bea’s mutation. (Leah Fasten) Genetics is the study of genes, DNA, and variation; heredity is the passing of inherited traits from parents to offspring. Exome sequencing is helping to solve these genetics-but-not-heredity mysteries. THE BEA PROJECT When Hugh Rienhoff first saw his daughter Bea, born in December 2003, he knew something was wrong. As she grew into toddlerhood, Bea’s slow weight gain and bird-like legs reminded her father of Marfan syndrome. When Bea’s diagnosis remained elusive, Dr. (photo: Leah Fasten) Bea’s journey to a diagnosis in what would be dubbed The Bea Project chronicles human genomics in the 21rst century.
Chapter 4 opened with the story of the father seeking his daughter’s DNA. (An aside here on textbooks. Back to Bea. I reluctantly concurred. Dr. Richard Price (writer) Price was born in the Bronx, New York City, the son of Harriet (Rosenbaum) and Milton Price, a window dresser. A self-described "lower middle class Jewish kid", he grew up in a housing project in the northeast Bronx. He graduated from the Bronx High School of Science in 1967 and obtained a B.A. from Cornell University and an MFA from Columbia University.
He also did graduate work at Stanford University.  He has taught writing at Columbia, Yale University, and New York University. He was one of the first people interviewed on the NPR show Fresh Air when it began airing nationally in 1987. In 1999, he received the American Academy of Arts and Letters Award in Literature. He has published articles in The New York Times, Esquire Magazine, The New Yorker, Village Voice, Rolling Stone and others. In July 2010, a group art show inspired by Lush Life was held in nine galleries in New York City. Oates, Joyce Carol (February 16, 2015). Birger Lindberg Møller – University of Copenhagen. Plant Biochemistry A main research interest of mine within plant biochemistry is bio-active natural products. In particular, the focus of my research group is the biosynthesis, transport, storage and degradation of cyanogenic glucosides and elucidation of their role in the ability of plants to communicate with the environment and to defend themselves against attack from herbivores, pests and abiotic stresses.
“In all aspects of their lives plants are able to communicate with their surroundings by using complex biochemistry.” Synthetic Biology A promising application of my lab's research involves engineering microalgae, mosses and plant cells into production units for high value natural products.
