Computers Made Out of DNA, Slime and Other Strange Stuff

Computers Made Out of DNA, Slime and Other Strange Stuff
Everybody knows a computer is a machine made of metal and plastic, with microchip cores turning streams of electrons into digital reality. A century from now, though, computers could look quite different. They might be made from neurons and chemical baths, from bacterial colonies and pure light, unrecognizable to our old-fashioned 21st century eyes. Far-fetched? A little bit. But a computer is just a tool for manipulating information. Images: 1) CERN 2) Martinez et al. Related:  risullyBIO

Trace Your Ancestry with DNA - DNA Ancestry Project Scientists make 'laboratory-grown' kidney 14 April 2013Last updated at 19:29 ET By James Gallagher Health and science reporter, BBC News The rat kidney was grown in the laboratory A kidney "grown" in the laboratory has been transplanted into animals where it started to produce urine, US scientists say. Similar techniques to make simple body parts have already been used in patients, but the kidney is one of the most complicated organs made so far. A study, in the journal Nature Medicine, showed the engineered kidneys were less effective than natural ones. But regenerative medicine researchers said the field had huge promise. Kidneys filter the blood to remove waste and excess water. The researchers' vision is to take an old kidney and strip it of all its old cells to leave a honeycomb-like scaffold. This would have two major advantages over current organ transplants. The tissue would match the patient, so they would not need a lifetime of drugs to suppress the immune system to prevent rejection. Scaffolding Analysis 'Really impressive'

Scientist Prove DNA Can Be Reprogrammed by Words and Frequencies By Grazyna Fosar and Franz Bludorf THE HUMAN DNA IS A BIOLOGICAL INTERNET and superior in many aspects to the artificial one. Russian scientific research directly or indirectly explains phenomena such as clairvoyance, intuition, spontaneous and remote acts of healing, self healing, affirmation techniques, unusual light/auras around people (namely spiritual masters), mind’s influence on weather patterns and much more. In addition, there is evidence for a whole new type of medicine in which DNA can be influenced and reprogrammed by words and frequencies WITHOUT cutting out and replacing single genes. Only 10% of our DNA is being used for building proteins. It is this subset of DNA that is of interest to western researchers and is being examined and categorized. The Russian biophysicist and molecular biologist Pjotr Garjajev and his colleagues also explored the vibrational behavior of the DNA. One can simply use words and sentences of the human language!

A chimp-pig hybrid origin for humans? (Phys.org) —These days, getting a Ph.D. is probably the last thing you want to do if you are out to revolutionize the world. If, however, what you propose is an idea, rather than a technology, it can still be a valuable asset to have. Dr. Eugene McCarthy is a Ph.D. geneticist who has made a career out of studying hybridization in animals. He now curates a biological information website called Macroevolution.net where he has amassed an impressive body of evidence suggesting that human origins can be best explained by hybridization between pigs and chimpanzees. Generally speaking, interspecies hybrids—like mules, ligers (lion-tiger hybrids), or zedonks (zebra-donkey hybrids)—are less fertile than the parents that produced them. This latter possibility may not sound so far-fetched after you read the riveting details suggesting that the origin of the gorilla may be best explained by hybridization with the equally massive forest hog.

A New Programming Language That Can Shape Our DNA Scientists have studied the behavior of complex biological molecules such as DNA for decades. Now they are moving to being able to control that behavior in test tubes and inside cells. Last month, a team led at the University of Washington announced they had devised and successfully tested a programming language that can guide the assembly of synthetic DNA molecules into a circuit that can perform a task, just as a software developer would write code to send commands to a computer. Chemists have always used mathematical models to study how molecules behave in mixtures. “Instead of thinking of this as a descriptive language that allows you to understand the chemistry, we said, we’re going to create a prescriptive language that allows you to program something,” says Georg Seelig, an assistant professor of electrical engineering and computer science at the school. A lot of work remains, but the broader field of synthetic biology is growing.

Study: plants 'talk' via funghi to warn about impending dangers A study has found that plants talk to one another when under attack via the symbiotic funghi mycorrhizae. Networks of mycorrhizae cover the roots of most plants, using their larger underground surface area to gather up more water and nutrients that the plant roots could possibly gather alone. They also improve surrounding soil quality, sending out root threads to separate clay platelets and get air and water to the main roots. "Here, we show that mycorrhizal mycelia can also act as a conduit for signalling between plants, acting as an early warning system for herbivore attack," write the authors in a study published in Ecology Letters. When under attack by aphids, certain plants release chemicals that trigger a scent that repels aphids and attracts predators that will help rid the plant of aphids. Bean plants, which release an aphid-repelling and wasp-attracting chemical, were grown in groups of five, with three connected by the funghi and two without the funghal links.

Obesity FTO Gene Discovered, Higher Levels of 'Hunger Hormone' Ghrelin in Blood First Posted: Jul 15, 2013 02:39 PM EDT Red blood cells (Photo : Flickr/Andrew Mason) Health experts believe they may have targeted a gene that causes obesity. Like Us on Facebook Known as the FTO gene, researchers believe that this affects one in six of the population, making those carrying the genetic tendencies 70 percent more likely to become obese. A series of tests showed that people with the variation not only had higher levels of the "hunger hormone" ghrelin in their blood, but they also had an increased sensitivity to the chemical in their brains, according to the study. "It's a double hit," said Rachel Batterham from University College London, who led the study, via Reuters. The study shows that following meals, researchers looked at blood samples to analyze functional magnetic resonance imaging of the volunteers' brains. Batterham said the work provided new insights and possible new leads for treatment regarding experimental drugs that are known to suppress appetite.

Key to Life is Information, Not Chemicals | Origin of Life Scientists trying to unravel the mystery of life's origins have been looking at it the wrong way, a new study argues. Instead of trying to recreate the chemical building blocks that gave rise to life 3.7 billion years ago, scientists should use key differences in the way that living creatures store and process information, suggests new research detailed today (Dec. 11) in the Journal of the Royal Society Interface. "In trying to explain how life came to exist, people have been fixated on a problem of chemistry, that bringing life into being is like baking a cake, that we have a set of ingredients and instructions to follow," said study co-author Paul Davies, a theoretical physicist and astrobiologist at Arizona State University. "That approach is failing to capture the essence of what life is about." Living systems are uniquely characterized by two-way flows of information, both from the bottom up and the top down in terms of complexity, the scientists write in the article.

Cornell Bioengineers 3D Print Replacement Ears 12inShare Engineers at Cornell University used 3D printing techniques to build a new external human ear. The outer ear, also called the auricle, or pinna, was constructed using an extrudable gel made of living cells. Over a 3 month period the ears grew cartilage to replace the collagen base that was used to mold them. Cartilage is an ideal tissue for 3D printed biostructures since it can persist in the absence of vascularization. The pinna is much more than just an ornamental curiosity. 3D printing has come to prominence only recently and has quickly emerged as a powerful new tool for all kinds of biomedical applications. The Cornell researchers estimate that the best time to implant a child with the ear would be around age six.
