Hygienic robots gets the rating by D4

Codian Robotics of Veenendaal, Netherlands is satisfied to report accessibility of their new line of Ip69k evaluated Hygienic Robots for wash down applications along with its cleaning results. This group of robots is currently accessible in work cover sizes of 800 mm, 1100 mm, and 1300 mm. Extra sizes of 500 mm and 1600 mm will be accessible later in 2014.
The new D4 HD family emphasizes 316l Stainless Steel and Type 1 Titanium construction with a Viwateq finish, sealed motor/gearbox compartments,  watertight construction of pivot hub & primary body, and sealed cable gland.
Sealed compartments permit the utilization of standard gearboxes and motors, bringing down the expense of new parts, and permitting institutionalization of spares with our different robots in the D4 gang.
Their D4 HD conveys the same quick and calm execution, and the same open control system ability as alternate parts of the D2 and D4 robot families.

EEL Genome Sequencing to reveal numerous Secrets

Surprisingly, the genome of the electric eel has been sequenced. This finding has uncovered the mystery of how fish with electric organs have advanced six times in the historical backdrop of life to create electricity outside of their bodies.
"It's truly exciting to find that complex structures like the electric organ, which evolved completely independently in six groups of fish, seem to share the same genetic toolkit," said Jason Gallant, MSU zoologist and co-lead author of the paper. "Biologists are starting to learn, using genomics, that evolution makes similar structures from the same starting materials, even if the organisms aren't even that closely related."
The research, distributed in the ebb and flow issue of Science, sheds light on the hereditary outline used to advance these intricate, novel organs. It was co-headed by Michigan State University, University of Wisconsin-Madison, University of Texas-Austin and the Systemix Institute.

Rare coding variant can be tested with the help of KASP chemistry

LGC's exclusive KASP genotyping assay has been effectively contrasted with an option innovation for planning custom genotyping assays.
A group of heading researchers at the University of Nottingham did an immediate investigation of LGC's hand crafted KASP chemistry and existing Taqman genotyping assays, and found that utilizing KASP genotyping creates preferable comes about over different advances.
The study thought about the viability of the two innovations in effective configuration of custom genotyping assays for an uncommon toxic mis-sense coding variants recommended to have association with Alzheimer's ailment.
Through an unprejudiced methodology, genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have uncovered a lot new ailment hazard genes connected with complex issue, be that as it may, recognizing the useful variant straightforwardly included in a disease is more convoluted.
Immediate genotyping in replication case-and control-samples is frequently needed to affirm a va…

Application of synthetic biology in making soaps

The New York Times as of late uncovered that some soap organizations were supplanting the palm oil in their items with a substitute made by algae. The dubious part is that the yeast algae are genetically modified — they're the result of another branch known as synthetic biology.
In the New York Times piece, composed by Stephanie Strom, the organizations that were going for synthetic-biology-palm-oil substitutions reacted secretly to request — and the activists who had brought their work to light went about as though it were a despicable mystery.
“Palm oil has been such an extreme disaster for forests, and the environment more generally, that if these synthetic organisms can produce large volumes of vegetable oil, we should celebrate them,” said, Glenn Hurowitz, chair of the Forest Heroes Campaign.
“We wish every success toward the development of ultra-high-yield vegetable-oil technology,” Hurowitz said. The issue is that synthetic biology is not developing enough to do that yet. A…

Dyson will invest £5 million in robotic lab.

"My generation believed the world would be overrun by robots by the year 2014. We now have the mechanical and electronic capabilities, but robots still lack understanding—seeing and thinking in the way we do. Mastering this will make our lives easier and lead to previously unthinkable technologies,” said James Dyson, founder, Dyson.
Dyson, an engineering firm, popular for its bagless vacuum cleaners, is all set to invest £5 million in robotic lab located at imperial college, London. This new robotic lab will help robots to know the world around them and adapt to it.
James Dyson and Prof Andrew Davison of imperial college are working together on robotics since 2005. The research that will be conducted at the lab will cover the robotics vacuum cleaner and domestic robot.
In 2001, Dyson’s robotic vacuum cleaner’s prototype almost completed its production. However, Prof Andrew Davison pulled it out at the last moment saying that it was way expensive and huge. There are few robotic …
