Researchers Seek to Develop ‘Biofabrication’ Methodologies to Connect Microelectronics with Biological Systems

Researchers Seek to Develop ‘Biofabrication’ Methodologies to Connect Microelectronics with Biological Systems

Researchers often use microelectronic devices embedded with biological components to interrogate biology, but such devices can do much more – perhaps even control biology. [More]

High School Students Explore Nanotechnology at CNSE/SUNYIT’s Utica

High School Students Explore Nanotechnology at CNSE/SUNYIT’s Utica

The newly merged SUNY College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE)/SUNY Institute of Technology (SUNYIT) offered area high school students a unique opportunity to explore nanotechnology at a three-day academic day camp on CNSE/SUNYIT’s Utica campus. [More]
Finite Inertia Affects Nanoscale Artificial Swimming Machines

Finite Inertia Affects Nanoscale Artificial Swimming Machines

Scale plays a major role in locomotion. Swimming microorganisms, such as bacteria and spermatozoa, are subjected to relatively small inertial forces compared to the viscous forces exerted by the surrounding fluid. [More]
Nanopropellers for Microscopic Medicine

Nanopropellers for Microscopic Medicine

If you thought that the most impressive news in shrinking technology these days was smart watches, think again. Scientists are quietly toiling in their laboratories to create robots that are only nanometers – billionths of a meter – in length, small enough to maneuver inside the human body and possibly inside human cells.

Nanoscale DNA Strands Created to Study ‘Bead-Spring’ Polymer Chains

Nanoscale DNA Strands Created to Study ‘Bead-Spring’ Polymer Chains

Rice University researchers are using magnetic beads and DNA "springs" to create chains of varying flexibility that can be used as microscale models for polymer macromolecules. [More]
Nanoparticles Jumpstart Body's Ability to Fight Tumors

Nanoparticles Jumpstart Body's Ability to Fight Tumors

Researchers at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Norris Cotton Cancer Center are exploring ways to wake up the immune system so it recognizes and attacks invading cancer cells. Tumors protect themselves by tricking the immune system into accepting everything as normal, even while cancer cells are dividing and spreading. [More]
Gen9 Announces Commercial Launch of GeneByte Plus DNA Constructs

Gen9 Announces Commercial Launch of GeneByte Plus DNA Constructs

Gen9, Inc., the pioneer in the development of scalable technologies for synthesizing and assembling DNA, today announced the commercial launch of GeneByte Plus™ DNA constructs, synthesized at lengths ranging from 3,000 to 10,000 base pairs. [More]
Researchers Develop a Switch for Nano-Optics

Researchers Develop a Switch for Nano-Optics

Electronics now has a competitor. Information is increasingly being transmitted and processed by means of light rather than electrons. [More]
Gold Nanoparticles Coated with Special Molecules Can Easily Penetrate Cells

Gold Nanoparticles Coated with Special Molecules Can Easily Penetrate Cells

A special class of tiny gold particles can easily slip through cell membranes, making them good candidates to deliver drugs directly to target cells. [More]
