Archived Webinar
Jun 29, 2010
Modularity is a highly sought after feature in engineering design. A modular catalyst is a multi-component system whose parts can be predictably interchanged for functional flexibility and variety...

Computational Protein Engineering

SBE Special Section
Robert Pantazes
Proteins could transform the chemical process industries if they could be engineered to facilitate the production of biofuels, molecular medicines, and other specialty chemicals. This reality is nearing as expanded knowledge of proteins and improvements in computational tools are making it possible to design specific protein structures and functions.

Team Stores 200 MB of Data on DNA Strands

July 12, 2016

With increasingly large volumes of data being created every day, the search for stable and compact data storage has turned to DNA to replace the relatively fragile magnetic backups that are today

Computer Simulations Unlock Molecular Cell Membrane

December 22, 2014

Just a few days ago, an article appeared in the journal Science announcing a major breakthrough: artificial transporter proteins that can carry individual atoms across the membrances th

Catalyzing Commercialization: New Process Makes Spider Silk in Many Forms

Catalyzing Commercialization
The strongest fiber found in nature is a silk made by spiders known as orb weavers. Unfortunately, spiders have two flaws: They are territorial and cannibalistic, making it impossible to farm them like silkworms to produce massive quantities of silk...

Your Personal Genome for $1,000?

SBE Special Section
IBM scientists from four fields — nanofabrication, microelectronics, physics and biology — are collaborating to develop a “DNA transistor” that could make obtaining a personalized genome analysis easier, faster, and cheaper — ultimately as low as $...

Purifying Therapeutic Monoclonal Antibodies

SBE Special Section
Jace Fogle, Nuno Fontes, Benedicte Lebreton, Amy Len, Amit Mehta, Robert van Reis, Roshan Shrestha, Martha Lovato Tse, Bradley Wolk
Eliminating the affinity chromatography step in the mAb purification process trims equipment requirements, shrinks the plant footprint— and reduces costs.
