Cheap, fast DNA sequencing machines have enabled all kinds of new questions to be answered, and led to emerging insights about the microbiome’s interplay with the immune system, the endocrine system, and even our central nervous system. 
The trillions of bacteria that live in our guts, and on our skin, also hide out in a strange place – the microenvironment around tumors. One of biotech’s daring early-stage venture capital outfits, well aware of the surge in microbiome research, is committing $35 million to get some answers to [...]

Current 3D printing technology is really just 2D printing, over and over again.
CLIP — Continuous Liquid Interface Production — is a breakthrough technology that grows parts instead of printing them layer by layer. CLIP allows businesses to produce commercial quality parts at game-changing speeds, creating a clear path to 3D manufacturing.
Californian chemist Jason Rolland's company Carbon3D has created a UV 3D printer that continually "grows" objects out of a pool of resin -- and is 100 times faster than its rivals

While it seems that entrepreneurs tend to have an admirable penchant for risk, it’s usually that access to money which allows them to take risks.
And this is a key advantage: When basic needs are met, it’s easier to be creative; when you know you have a safety net, you are more willing to take risks.

Gene drives could potentially prevent the spread of disease, support agriculture by reversing pesticide and herbicide resistance in insects and weeds, and control damaging invasive species.
The technique involves propelling a gene of choice throughout a population. It hasn’t been tested in the wild yet, but has worked in the laboratory.

Thrun says. "We’re at the point where these companies think of us as kind of the new university of Silicon Valley."
"It’s not a technology moonshot in the same way that putting balloons into the stratosphere is — it’s a really important societal moonshot," he says. "We want to double the world’s GDP — that’s our ambitious goal."
