Turning a new phage

by

Lauren Gravitz

"The idea of using bacteria-fighting viruses as a weapon against hard-to-treat infections is making a surprising comeback, but with a twist on how it has been attempted for nearly a century. Researchers and companies are now tweaking and deconstructing these bacteria killers in an effort to develop a new arsenal against antibiotic-resistant superbugs—one with more potency and a better likelihood of regulatory approval....."

Foundations of synthesis and design in Synthetic Biology

Great video!

 

Lecture by

J. Chris Anderson
Assistant Professor of Bioengineering
University of California, Berkeley

 

"The advent of next-generation sequencing and emerging technologies for DNA fabrication will provide lower-cost solutions to the limiting problem of reading and writing genetic programs. To capitalize on this technological potential, new approaches to design, analysis, and debugging are required. Ultimately, the combination of these developments will enable new applications in genetic engineering such as cellular therapeutics, new materials, and sustainable bioenergy and chemical production. I will describe our efforts to identify new design principles in synthetic biology, construct therapeutic bacteria and genetic manipulation systems, and computationally encapsulate engineering knowledge to predict better genetic designs and quantify risk."

course-builder - Course Builder - Google Project Hosting | Bioinformatics Training | Scoop.it

Welcome to Course Builder!

Course Builder is our experimental first step in the world of online education. It packages the software and technology we used to build our Power Searching with Google online course. We hope you will use it to create your own online courses, whether they're for 10 students or 100,000 students. You might want to create anything from an entire high school or university offering to a short how-to course on your favorite topic.

Course Builder contains software and instructions for presenting your course material, which can include lessons, student activities, and assessments. It also contains instructions for using other Google products to create a course community and to evaluate the effectiveness of your course. To use Course Builder, you should have some technical skills at the level of a web master. In particular, you should have some familiarity with HTML and JavaScript.

New platform for online courses stresses team-based, experiential learning | School of Engineering | Bioinformatics Training | Scoop.it

A new online course on a new online platform at Stanford succeeds not only in joining people from dozens of countries but enabling them to directly collaborate on group projects: A group of women in Iran put together a tourism project; three men in India devised a way of connecting Indian musicians, audiences and venues; a pair of men in Trinidad and Tobago figured out how to ease road transportation; a team with members in Germany, the United Kingdom and Russia developed a mobile app for buying and selling locally designed products; and four Americans and a Pakistani created a search engine to find online classes.

Digital badges show students' skills along with degree

Digital badges show students' skills along with degree | Bioinformatics Training | Scoop.it

Digital badges are becoming a popular way to acknowledge professional skills, and Purdue University has released the Passport application to allow instructors to create badges for their students. The creator tool in Passport offers a variety of templates on which instructors or advisers can base their own badges.

 

"Typically in courses, we have a number of very broad learning goals, and grades are given out on student assignments tied to these broad goals," Watson says. "But really, it is more a comparison of students rather than a focus on student learning and attainment of desired learning outcomes.

 

"Badges help instructors encourage students to demonstrate how they have met very specific learning objectives through actual performance."

 

Purdue's Passport platform consists of two apps: The Passport app allows instructors to set the steps, or challenges, a student must achieve to earn the badge. The app also allows an instructor or adviser to create a badge by choosing from several templates.

Re-Imagining Our Genes:

Re-Imagining Our Genes: | Bioinformatics Training | Scoop.it

Thirty-one papers simultaneously published by the ENCODE (Encyclopedia of DNA Elements) project indelibly repaint the picture of the human genome, throwing its information-processing characteristics into even sharper relief. (The whole collection—six papers in Nature, 18 in Genome Research, four in Genome Biology, and one in BioMed Central Genetics—is posted with open access at Nature Encode. The lead article, “Architecture of the human regulatory network derived from ENCODE data,” is must reading for information-systems designers.)

 

Just a few years ago, the prevailing wisdom said that the genome comprises 3 percent or so genes and 97 percent “junk” (with 2 or 3 percent of that junk consisting of the fossilized remains of retroviruses that infected our ancestors somewhere along the line). After a decade of painstaking analysis by more than 200 scientists, the new ENCODE data show that indeed 2.94 percent of the genome is protein-coding genes, while 80.4 percent of sequences regulate how those genes get turned on, turned off, expressed, processed, and modified.

8 Ways Google Glasses Will Change Education | Edudemic | Bioinformatics Training | Scoop.it

Education is already seeing some major changes in light of new, cutting-edge technologies. Students can now access educational information from virtually anywhere at any time, and mobile devices are influencing some to flip their classrooms, changing the educational experience altogether.While current technologies are making waves, further changes linked to upcoming technologies may be on the horizon.

One of the most hyped and anticipated devices over the past year has been Google’s soon-to-be-released glasses. These glasses will enable users to get real-time information about the places, people, and objects around them, right on the lens of the glasses.

Telemedicine to Lower Cost for 5 Health Issues

Telemedicine to Lower Cost for 5 Health Issues | Bioinformatics Training | Scoop.it

Telemedicine is the advanced technology that will allow patients to monitor their own health at home. These devices can upload patient test outcomes to an online database, where their physicians can keep an eye out for dangerous patterns in the patient’s health. The prevalence of telemedicine is slowly increasing and becoming more advanced, leaving the impetus behind improved health with the patient.

 

Healthcare IT News (2012) recently announced the five areas of healthcare that telemedicine will likely improve greatly over the coming years: (1) active heart monitoring, (2) blood pressure, (3) diabetes, (4) prescription compliance, and (5) sleep apnea. Physicians and product developers hope that telemedicine will be able to improve patient health by increasing continual monitoring and therefore catching problems before symptoms show up. Telemedicine is also expected to decrease healthcare costs in these areas by eliminating unnecessary doctor visits and preventing bigger health problems earlier.
