The value of tangibility for ubiquitous computing is in its simplicity-when faced with the question of how to grasp a digital object, why not just pick it up? But this is problematic; digital media is powerful due to its extreme mutability and is therefore resistant to the constraints of static physical form. We present Slurp, a tangible interface for(More)
The determination of protein functions is one of the most challenging problems of the post-genomic era. The sequencing of entire genomes and the possibility to access gene's co-expression patterns has moved the attention from the study of single proteins or small complexes to that of the entire proteome [1]. In this context, the search for reliable methods(More)
DNA nanotechnology exploits the programmable specificity afforded by base-pairing to produce self-assembling macromolecular objects of custom shape. For building megadalton-scale DNA nanostructures, a long 'scaffold' strand can be employed to template the assembly of hundreds of oligonucleotide 'staple' strands into a planar antiparallel array of(More)
This paper describes the performance analysis of an adapter in accordance with standard UPnP DHCompliant (Digital Home Compliant) for a service robot. The DHCompliant adapter has been developed to solve some limitations that UPnP protocol suffers and to develop new DHC concepts. Moreover, it showcases with a particular example how the open protocol DHC is(More)
We have developed a general method for solving a key challenge for nanotechnology: programmable self-assembly of complex, three-dimensional nanostructures [Douglas, Dietz, et al. 2009]. Previously, scaffolded DNA origami has been used to build arbitrary flat shapes 100 nm in diameter and almost twice the mass of a ribosome [Rothemund 2006]. Now we have(More)
BACKGROUND The Rio Grande River is the natural boundary between U.S. and Mexico from El Paso, TX to Brownsville, TX. and is one of the major water resources of the area. Agriculture, farming, maquiladora industry, domestic activities, as well as differences in disposal regulations and enforcement increase the contamination potential of water supplies along(More)
