Another step toward the inevitable direction of individualized genetic "medicine" -- I always ask myself "how will the pharmaceutical companies adjust?"
Researchers found a fix for a 3-billion-year-old glitch in one of the major carriers of information needed for life, RNA, which until now produced errors when making copies of genetic information. The discovery will increase precision in genetic research and could dramatically improve medicine based on a person's genetic makeup.

Time to re=read "The Sheep look up" written by John Brunner. He touched on this topic in his novel decades ago. A nation-wide chain of stores named Puritan Foods sold organic, pesticide-free foods. A researcher found that the fields and farms that were truly certified to grow such things could only grow a tiny fraction of what was being sold.

A bit ago I shared a wired article that talked about the CRISPR-Cas9 technology remaking the world... it has now officially begun in earnest.
U.K. regulators grant permission to use CRISPR-Cas9 technology in embryos for early-development research

Some video tutorials I did for the SketchUp version of Maxwell Render have been released today. The post even has the rarest of all rarities -- a photo of me.

A series of Corel Painter 2016 Brush Engine tutorials I did for Corel on the topic of the similarities between Liquid Ink and Dynamic Speckles technologies. These are two of my favorite technologies and I hope you find the videos useful.

Interesting AI article for game artists.
A remarkable machine-learning trick that cleans up pixelated videos and photographs can automatically generate high-quality computer-game graphics.

Great photo editing plugins -- now free.
 
Today we’re making the Nik Collection available to everyone, for free.

Photo enthusiasts all over the world use the Nik Collection to get the best out of their images every day. As we continue to focus our long-term investments in building incredible photo editing tools for mobile, including Google Photos and Snapseed, we’ve decided to make the Nik Collection desktop suite available for free, so that now anyone can use it.

The Nik Collection is comprised of seven desktop plug-ins that provide a powerful range of photo editing capabilities -- from filter applications that improve color correction, to retouching and creative effects, to image sharpening that brings out all the hidden details, to the ability to make adjustments to the color and tonality of images.

Starting March 24, 2016, the latest Nik Collection will be freely available to download: Analog Efex Pro, Color Efex Pro, Silver Efex Pro, Viveza, HDR Efex Pro, Sharpener Pro and Dfine. If you purchased the Nik Collection in 2016, you will receive a full refund, which we’ll automatically issue back to you in the coming days.

We’re excited to bring the powerful photo editing tools once only used by professionals to even more people now.
