An ordered draft sequence of the 17-gigabase hexaploid bread wheat (Triticum aestivum) genome has been produced by sequencing isolated chromosome arms. We have annotated 124,201 gene loci distributed nearly evenly across the homeologous chromosomes and subgenomes. Comparative gene analysis of wheat subgenomes and extant diploid and tetraploid wheat relatives […]
Allohexaploid bread wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) provides approximately 20% of calories consumed by humans. Lack of genome sequence for the three homeologous and highly similar bread wheat genomes (A, B, and D) has impeded expression analysis of the grain transcriptome. We used previously unknown genome information to analyze the cell type–specific expressio […]
The United Arab Emirates has announced plans to launch a mission to Mars by 2021. A first for the Arab world, the mission and accompanying Space Agency are a big deal for the UAE – scientifically and politically.
Here's a robot video that I found interesting: MF201 is a 25cm tall new type of Robot Control System suitable for realizing "Motion Figure System". It is very slim and silent and based on "Motional Bone System" and "Karakuri Unit". It can realize cute, silent and low cost Motion Figure System. By benten505
Here's a robot video that I found interesting: Initial tests right after assembly with no adjustments or other tweeks. Everything worked perfectly the first time it powered up. After I spend some time tweeking the alignment it will be even better. By Robots Dreams
