Rice blast disease caused by Magnaporthe grisea is a continuous threat to stable rice production worldwide. In a modernized agricultural system, the development of varieties with broad-spectrum and durable resistance to blast disease is essential for increased rice production and sustainability. In this study, a new gene is identified in the introgression(More)
A tactile sensor for slip detection is necessary for human- like grasping in robot hand. This paper reports a capacitive tactile slip sensor that can detect slip on the surface of the sensor structure. The newly developed capacitive slip sensor uses acrylo-nitrile butadiene rubber (NBR) as substrate. The presented sensor device in this paper has fingerprint(More)
Process for selection of material and corresponding mechanical structure design with performance testing for smart material micro-optical systems is presented. With the specific application of the optical system for mobile devices in mind, the present work has an emphasis on a design constraint of small physical dimensions that can be achieved through the(More)
Streptolysin O (SLO) is a known bacterial protein that forms very large pores in the plasma membranes of mammalian cells. SLO has been used in the delivery of proteins into living cells following permeabilization. The objective of this study was to investigate the effects of SLO treatment in donor cells that generate pores in the plasma membrane during in(More)
In this study, we were the development and calibration of new complex sensor which is similar to tactile sensing of human due to can be measured normal and shear force by using newly developed synthetic elastomer and conductive silicone. The developed sensor can sense pressing force by capacitance changes as thickness changes by applied normal force in(More)
