An algorithm that can predict how to reprogram any type of cell by signalling the cell to morph straight into another cell type, without bothering with the stem cell step, has been created. "This new algorithm termed 'Mogrify' was created after 5 years of development, and uses a database of over 300 different human cell types to predict which factors are required to make each type. It uses big data to accomplish in a very short amount of time, what would take years in the lab." "Although the system needs further work, initial tests have been very encouraging."
Researchers at the University of Bristol have created 'Mogrify' - an algorithm that can predict how to reprogram virtually any type of cell

NASA Space Shuttle Challenger STS-41-B Launch: 1984
32 Years Ago: The Space Shuttle Challenger lifted off from Kennedy Space Center's Launch Pad 39A on mission STS 41-B on February 3, 1984. Aboard the Challenger were astronauts Vance D. Brand, Robert L. Gibson, Ronald E. McNair, Bruce McCandless II, and Robert L. Stewart. The first untethered spacewalks with the Manned Maneuvering Unit (MMU) were made on this mission. This dramatic air to air picture was taken by astronaut John Young who was monitoring the launch in the cockpit of NASA's Shuttle Training Aircraft.

That very fine hair-line object that you see being pulled across the screen is actually a neuron being made. A research team led by McGill University and the Montreal Neurological Institute has managed to create new functional connections between neurons… #science

The octopus is the most pragmatic animal to inspire soft robots, because the octopus lacks any kind of rigid parts -- any bones. It's a completely soft animal, and you see what it is able to do. Matteo Cianchetti and Giada Gerboni at the BioRobotics Institute in Pontedera, Italy are developing octopus-inspired underwater robotic arms. Soft robots for surgery are being developed.

Graphene shown to safely interact with neurons in the brain - Researchers have successfully demonstrated how it is possible to interface graphene - a two-dimensional form of carbon - with neurons, or nerve cells, while maintaining the integrity of these vital cells. The work may be used to build graphene-based electrodes that can safely be implanted in the brain, offering promise for the restoration of sensory functions for amputee or paralysed patients, or for individuals with motor disord...

Engineers, chemists and others taking inspiration from biological systems for human applications must team up with biologists, writes Emilie Snell-Rood.
