Molecular Recognition Elements in Sensing Applications

Molecular Recognition Elements (MRE) are biomolecules with high affinity and specificity for a target. Of particular interest are single-stranded DNA (aptamer) and antibody fragment (scFv) MREs. Using conjugation chemistry these MREs may be incorporated into an array of sensing devices. MREs against pesticides and biowarfare agents have been isolated. Incorporation into optical sensing platforms has been achieved. This presentation will be given by Letha J. Sooter, of West Virginia University at Biodetection Technologies 2013.

Point of Care Systems for Biosurveillance Symposium - Final Call for Speakers

The objective of the Biosurveillance Symposium is to bring together the biosurveillance community to begin a process of addressing the many shortfalls and requirements for biosurveillance. This symposium will take place on June 17, 2013 and there are very few speaker slots that still remain on the program.

The deadline to submit a proposal is April 12, 2013.

Contact GII at 860-674-8796 if you are interested in speaking at the symposium

Blockchain. A day doesn’t seem to go by without seeing articles and discussions about the technology. According to PwC executive Seamus Cushley, approximately $1.4B has been invested in blockchain just last year.

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
Is advanced scheduling in Kubernetes achievable?Yes, however, how do you properly accommodate every real-life scenario that a Kubernetes user might encounter? How do you leverage advanced scheduling techniques to shape and describe each scenario in easy-to-use rules and configurations?

For example, using spot instances and co...
The cloud era has reached the stage where it is no longer a question of whether a company should migrate, but when. Enterprises have embraced the outsourcing of where their various applications are stored and who manages them, saving significant investment along the way. Plus, the cloud has become a defining competitive edge. Companies that fail to successfully adapt risk failure. The media, of course, continues to extol the virtues of the cloud, including how easy it is to get there. Migrating...
The use of containers by developers -- and now increasingly IT operators -- has grown from infatuation to deep and abiding love. But as with any long-term affair, the honeymoon soon leads to needing to live well together ... and maybe even getting some relationship help along the way.

Imagine if you will, a retail floor so densely packed with sensors that they can pick up the movements of insects scurrying across a store aisle. Or a component of a piece of factory equipment so well-instrumented that its digital twin provides resolution down to the micrometer.
The need for greater agility and scalability necessitated the digital transformation in the form of following equation: monolithic to microservices to serverless architecture (FaaS). To keep up with the cut-throat competition, the organisations need to update their technology stack to make software development their differentiating factor. Thus microservices architecture emerged as a potential method to provide development teams with greater flexibility and other advantages, such as the abili...
