  • Microfabricated flow-through PCR device for underwater microbiological study

    In this paper, microfabricated gene analysis devices for in situ extremophiles study are presented. The importance of understanding the microorganisms inhabiting in extreme environments (extremophiles) such as deep-sea, deep- subsurface and under glacial lakes are widely recognized. Although the molecular biological technique based on gene analysis is one of the major research methods for environmental microbiology because of its high sensitivity, the technique is time consuming and non-real time in principle. For more detailed and accurate study on environmental microbiology, an in situ genetic analysis method is strongly required. Especially for the study of extremophiles, totally automated and miniaturized analysis systems are essential because of human inaccessibility to such environments. From the engineering point of view, a new research field that relates to the development of miniaturized chemical or biological analysis tools, so called "micro total analysis systems (micro-TAS)" or "lab-on-a-chip", has emerged and rapidly advanced mainly for biochemical and biomedical applications. In this study, a microfabricated chip for the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) as one of the main components of a totally integrated in situ gene analysis system was developed and tested. With the developed PCR chip, 750 bp of DNA fragments were successfully amplified within 20 min from 1450 by DNA fragments of the E. coli whole genome.

  • Detecting misbehaving nodes in MANET with an artificial immune system based on type-2 fuzzy sets

    Last decade has witnessed an enormous growth in wireless networks that naturally has brought some new research challenges. Related studies conducted have covered several research areas like routing protocols, encrypted authentication protocols, misbehavior detection system and a number of innovative solutions, biologically-inspired and not, have been suggested to several open problems. In this position paper, we present a biologically- inspired type-2 fuzzy set recognition algorithm for detecting misbehaving nodes in an ad-hoc wireless network. This work investigates the possibility of detecting misbehaving nodes, learning bad behaviors, protecting the network from reinfection and mitigating the problem of routing misbehavior without human intervention, exploiting biological techniques evolved over millions of years. In order to protect the system of unwanted behaviors and take under control the number of false positive, our solution mimics the binding process between lymphocytes receptors of the immune cells and antigens.

  • Executable Biology

    Computational modeling of biological systems is becoming increasingly common as scientists attempt to understand biological phenomena in their full complexity. Here we distinguish between two types of biological models mathematical and computational - according to their different representations of biological phenomena and their diverse potential. We call the approach of constructing computational models of biological systems executable biology, as it focuses on the design of executable computer algorithms that mimic biological phenomena. We give an overview of the main modeling efforts in this direction, and discuss some of the new challenges that executable biology poses for computer science and biology. We argue that for executable biology to reach its full potential as a mainstream biological technique, formal and algorithmic approaches must be integrated into biological research, driving biology towards a more precise engineering discipline

  • Neuroendocrine tissue engineering in rotating wall vessel bioreactors under simulated microgravity conditions

    The low-shear, microgravity-simulating cell culture environment in rotating wall vessel (RWV) bioreactors is well suited for generating differentiated 3-D tissue constructs (organoids). Biochemical, immunological and molecular biological techniques, including cDNA arrays, were used to analyze signal transduction, catecholamine contents, and gene expression in 3-D tissue-like constructs of PC12 pheochromocytoma cells grown for <30 d in RWVs. Vascularization of the organoids implanted s.c. into Matrigel plugs in B56 mice was evaluated by fluorescence microscopy. The unique culture environment of RWV bioreactors facilitates the generation of macroscopic, functional neuroendocrine tissue-like assemblies, as assessed by the enhanced production of catecholamines. Organoid formation is accompanied by prolonged activation of specific signaling pathways (erk, p38, jnk) and transcription factors, leading to a unique pattern of gene expression characteristic for the neuroendocrine phenotype. Thus in RWV, "neuronal" genes (e.g. GAP 43) were downregulated while "neuroendocrine" genes (e.g. chromogranin A) were upregulated. When implanted into Matrigel plugs in vivo, PC12 organoids generated in RWV bioreactors, but not 3-D aggregates formed under static conditions, became highly vascularized. This latter finding is in line with the enhanced expression of angiogenic growth factors, such as VEGF in RWVs but not in the controls. The unique cell culture environment in RWV bioreactors activates differentiative signaling pathways and hence facilitates engineering of functional neuroendocrine tissue constructs, which might be clinically useful as implants in the treatment of debilitating neurodegenerative diseases, such as Parkinson's disease.

  • Geophysical and Biological Seafloor Mapping of Four Oil and Gas Lease Blocks in the South Atlantic Georgia Embayment

    Hard bottom substrate and live bottom biota associated with four South Atlantic Georgia Embayment oil and gas lease blocks were evaluated and mapped using geophysical and biological techniques. The primary objective of this study was to determine the efficacy of standard geophysical equipment and techniques to identify and map hard bottom areas. Geophysically defined hard bottom areas were groundtruthed utilizing biological techniques to identify and map the associated live bottom biota. General hard bottom areas within the study area were geophysically mapped successfully through the conservative interpretation of side-scan sonar, subbottom profiler, and precision depth recorder data. However, visual inspection was necessary to delineate the discontinuous nature of the emergent hard bottom areas and to describe the associated live bottom biota.

  • A Database of Selected Marine Genomics for Retrieving Distantly Related Proteins

    With the advancement of biological techniques, researches in the fields of marine evolution, ecology, and aquaculture have an explosive increasing rate both in volume and diversity. More than tens of thousands of genomic sequences were available for important marine species. However, most of the structures and corresponding functions remain unresolved and unknown. To discover the biological characteristics of genomic sequences of a marine species, an efficient and effective method for detecting distantly related proteins based on experimentally known functions from model species becomes an important strategy. In this study, Ensembl and NCBI genetic databases were employed to build a primitive database of selected marine species. The system contained an abundance of useful DNA, RNA and Protein information, and was named as the Marine Species Genome Database (MSGD). To identify remote proteins, we have proposed a novel LESS (length encoded secondary structure) profile to improve the information retrieval applications, especially for identifying protein sequences without resolved structures and within low sequence identity. The matching algorithms applied several existing secondary structure prediction techniques and a feasible encoding mechanism with respect to the length distribution of secondary structures. Due to the conservation of secondary structures of proteins in evolution, the proposed system demonstrated its suitability for similarity comparison of distantly related proteins, and several important protein sequences can be retrieved by MSGD while those well- known residue-based matching methods missed the identification.
