By mapping the DNA of living organisms human and animal health can be improved, diseases eradicated and crop plants strengthened to increase their yield. It is a relatively young science, largely based on Francis Crick and James Watsonrsquos discovery of the DNA double helix in 1953 and still has a great deal of potential for further advancement. Human biomedical research, plant and animal biology, microbiology, and infectious disease resea...

Just as 20th Century engineers relied on electric motors, 21st Century engineers are turning to lasers and fibre optics to create machines and technologies that will change the world and redefine life as we know it. Gerard Bush of motion experts INMOCO says the precision optical systems required are pushing the boundaries of drives and controls.Lasers were invented in 1960, and at first nobody could find a use for them. The theory behind op...

Gerard Bush of INMOCO and Peter Vandermeulen of PMD Corp. consider the use of stepper motors in closed loop architectures.Stepper motors have proven themselves as capable performers in a vast range of applications, offering an inexpensive solution when compared to brushless motors. For good reason, the stepper m... Tue, 20 Nov 2018 00:00:00 GMT
