The researchers from MIT and Harvard University were able to inject micro organisms into objects using 3D printing technology. The technology will allow the creation of smart packaging but does caution about bacterial contamination. The study has been published: Hybrid Living Materials: Digital Design and Fabrication of 3D Multimaterial Structures with Programmable Biohybrid Surfaces.
The meaning of the problem of overpopulation of the Earth came back in the 18th century. Demographer Thomas Malthus proposed the theory that overpopulation of the planet, which has become the cradle of mankind, is inevitable, and this will eventually lead to starvation, degradation of homo sapiens as a species and its disappearance. The scientist’s gloomy forecasts did not come true due to constantly developing medicine, first of all, mass vaccination, mechanization of agriculture, technology of deep freezing of products and wide development of the chemical industry.
Research pertaining to synthetic DNA creation technology was published on December 9 by the ETH Zurich research team and an Israeli scientist. Every human being has unique DNA made up of molecules (nucleotides). Each nucleotide contains a phosphate group, a sugar group and a nitrogen base. The four types of nitrogen bases are adenine (A), thymine (T), guanine (G) and cytosine (C). The order of these bases is what determines DNA’s instructions, or genetic code. Human DNA has around three billion bases, and more than 99% of those bases are the same in all people. This is according to the US National Library of Medicine.
Selective laser sintering technology would surpass the adoption rate of vat photopolymerisation technology, as time-efficiency and accuracy are turning into viable features of dental 3D printers. However, value-added features come at a cost-albeit a high one-which could adversely impact the sales of dental 3D printers.
