Bringing the Future to the Present: Flexible Macroelectronics

submitted by: eternes
Cell phones that can bend and roll? University of Maryland undergraduates Jonathan Chung and Ed Dechamphai are studying how to do that with flexible macroelectronics. Chung won the grand-prize in Texas Instruments’ 2008 national Vision for Voice Video Contest for his idea, "Visualizing the Translation," using flexible macroelectronics technology. Chung, entering his junior year at Maryland in the fall, proposed a unique pair of glasses that could display a real-time translated foreign...

Some prefer blue jeans...RGD prefers disease genes

submitted by: dabraham
Who knew you could find disease genes without even stepping into the laboratory? This video provides a tutorial on how to utilize the Disease Portals on the Rat Genome Database website at http://rgd.mcw.edu/wg/portals . These portals allow you to search for disease, phenotype, biological process, and pathway specific rat, mouse, and human genes and data. See our RGD website at http://rgd.mcw.edu for more information and tools for researchers...
