NETA Talks: How Computers Unravel the Ancient Secrets of Genes?

NETA New York branch organized its first “NETA Talks Series” on November 6, 2013 at NYU. Dr. Mehmet Baysan made a presentation. His topic was “How Computers Unravel the Ancient Secrets of Genes?” He beriefly talked about  how modern computers play a crucial role in the analyses of vast genomic data. His talk included a brief introduction to bioinformatics, some recent results in his lab and future insigh… → Read More

IBM 500-Mile-Per-Charge Battery Project

A century ago, more automobiles were powered by electricity than by gasoline. But the need for longer travel ranges, the availability of a more affordable fuel source and a reliable power infrastructure soon turned internal combustion engines into the predominant means of motor transportation. Now drivers are considering a move away from gasoline and back to electricity as an ideal source for automo… → Read More

I.B.M. Researchers Create High-Speed Graphene Circuits

ABSTRACT A wafer-scale graphene circuit was demonstrated in which all circuit components, including graphene field-effect transistor and inductors, were monolithically integrated on a single silicon carbide wafer. The integrated circuit operates as a broadband radio-frequency mixer at frequencies up to 10 gigahertz. These graphene circuits exhibit outstanding thermal stability with little reduction in … → Read More

Influenza at the human-animal interface

Summary and assessment as of 5 November2012 Human infection with avian influenza A(H5N1) virus and associated animal health events From 2003 through 5 November 2012, 608 laboratory-confirmed human cases with avian influenza A(H5N1) virus infection have been officially reported to WHO from 15 countries, of which 359 died. Since January 2012, 30 human cases of influenza A(H5N1) virus infection have been repor… → Read More

Stem Cells Myelinate Human Brain

In a Phase I trial, researchers show that neural stem cells transplanted into humans can differentiate and begin producing myelin. Neural stem cells transplanted into the brains of people with Pelizaeus-Merzbacher disease (PMD) can differentiate and begin producing the myelin sheaths that these patients lack, according to results of a Phase I clinical trial published today (October 10) in Science Translational Me… → Read More

Analysis of Interregional Commodity Flows

Commodity Flow Survey (CFS) was launched to collect comprehensive freight flow data throughout the kingdom of Thailand. The survey’s database is the most complete collection of commodity flow data in Thailand. The need to reveal interregional freight characteristics using available data from the CFS led to the objectives of this research. Approach: An origin destination matrix based on province was calibrated using … → Read More

The Solar Tracking System by Using Digital Solar Position Sensor

The phototransistor with the shade that blocks the screen was employed as a detector of solar beam radiation. The height of the screen determined the sensitivity operation or period of tracking in this solar tracker. The phototransistor is particularly designed to detect solar bean radiation thoroughly through the two axes with the operating time. The mechanism of this solar tracker is that it has a capacity of solar… → Read More

Modified power save model for better energy efficiency and reduced packet latency

Devices constituting wireless ad-hoc networks generally operate in battery power, energy efficiency is a critical research issue. IEEE 802.11 Power Save Mode is a standard recommended for energy efficient operation of wireless ad-hoc networks. When there is no data to transfer, energy is still utilized by IEEE 802.11 PSM during the ATIM window. With this work, an attempt is made to address this drawback with the prop… → Read More

The Physics of Spilled Coffee

Scientists face many obstacles on the path to greater knowledge. But new research suggests how to avoid one of the more common pitfalls: spilled coffee. "I cannot say for sure if coffee spilling has been detrimental to scientific research to any significant extent," says study author Rouslan Krechetnikov, a mechanical engineer at the University of California, Santa Barbara. "But it can certainly be disruptive for… → Read More
