"This is a tutorial for building a cheap and simple AFM head suitable
for single molecule force spectroscopy."

Referred to here from Fabaloo article (http://fabbaloo.com/blog/

) that notes the
full paper costs $ (euros) but the above page gives the basics.

Subject: Re: Stem Cell Clinic shut down.
To: <diybio@googlegroups.com>

Yeah, it's epic sketch out there. Unlike most uber-sketch stem cell clinics, there are maybe a few legit clinics out there, mostly using autologous MSCs. I was (uncharacteristically) impressed by Dr. Chris Centano's Regenexx clinic in Broomfield, Colorado. The therapy is definitively safe, fairly low-cost (~$8K), and actually seems to work (sans typical grandiose claims). 

Chris is an intelligent, rational guy, who founded the physician's oversight group, The American Stem Cell Therapy Association (ASCTA), now called the International Cellular Medicine Group (which h+ Magazine did an article about), which focuses on ranking the legitimacy of stem cell clinics, and keeping adult stem cells safe from costly and corrupt FDA regulation (following the same methodology that the doctors used to keep IVF out of FDA hands). 

There are some good papers out there, if anyone cares to read them, such as:


If anyone has any thoughts on other stem cell clinics, papers, or procedures, I'd love to hear!

Cheers,
Jata :-)

OK. It's a modification of the Imbert gasifier, using the principles
of the reverberatory furnace and counterflow heat exchange, so I'll
start by recapping the first of those.

An Imbert gasifier has a vertical, cylindrical fuel hopper of thin
metal, with a lid held down with a spring or weights rather than being
secured so that if pressure builds up it can be relieved without
damage. Air enters through "tuyères", downward slanting tubes a few
inches long entering the cylinder and ending a few inches above the
grate, with burning going on below them (in fact, kindling is lit
through them); there are an odd number of them so that you don't get
any opposite pairs burning a through channel and blowing flame
through. There is a flat grate above a deep ash pan, which is kept
closed up tight in use; gas is drawn off by suction from below the
grate and passed through a filter (of various possible types, e.g. a
bed of fresh fuel that gets put in the hopper later), to cool it and
clear out particles and corrosive gasses that can form during heating
the fuel. Fuel can be anything dry enough and carbon containing enough
to burn, that is in small pieces and neither gunks up the works nor
has a sulphur content that makes gas too corrosive even after
filtering (coal and rubber fail on both counts, and turning wood into
charcoal first both eliminates corrosive gasses and improves the gas
to fuel weight ratio, at the cost of losing some of the initial fuel
energy content). The gas contacts the gasifier before filtering,
though, so that will tend to corrode; it should be made either of
stainless steel or of materials cheap enough to be replaced regularly.

The improvement starts by making the grate conical, with an angle of
about ninety degrees, with the point upwards and capped. Below it,
with the same rim, is a downward conical metal heat reflector baffle
ending with a hole rather than a point (this means that the ash pan
has to be even deeper). Gas is no longer drawn off directly from the
ash pan zone, but through an L shaped, thermally insulated draw pipe
that runs horizontally above the ash pan, then vertically up through
the hole in the baffle to terminate just under the cap at the top of
the grate. Inside the draw pipe is a water feed pipe that runs along
it horizontally, then spirals up and passes through the cap, where it
turns down so fuel can't fall in; it needs to be descaled with mild
acid occasionally. A simple system maintains a head of water part way
up it; this has a reservoir pan outside at that level feeding it,
staying topped up from a main reservoir bottle resting in it cap
downwards with two short tubes going through its cap, one sticking out
further than the other, so whenever the level drops enough to uncover
the other tube it admits air to the bottle and releases enough water
to restore the level in the reservoir pan (to replace the bottle after
filling it, cover the tubes until it is in place to stop the water
pouring out). It is also possible to adapt the Archimedes screw
principle to feed fuel in or remove ash without letting air in or gas
out.

The operating principle is that producer gas (carbon monoxide, some
hydrogen, flammable vapours, diluting atmospheric nitrogen and trace
gasses) is generated near the rim of the grate in the usual way, then
steam is formed with the heat of the gas drawn out and passes into the
zone near the cap of the grate; this forms water gas (carbon monoxide,
hydrogen, flammable vapours and trace gasses) as the suction pulls it
through the fuel, which has to be kept at least as high as the cap, as
that region is kept hot by the combustion further off because the
grate and baffle work as a reverberatory furnace. Together, these
yield semi-water gas; the higher the proportion of air used, the more
heat and therefore steam gets formed, which reduces the air intake and
restores an equilibrium (any excess steam is caught in the filter).

Obviously this information is now freely available, but I would
appreciate it if anybody who finds this helpful would contact me to
arrange whatever donation they think fit; my email address is
pml540114@gmail.com. P.M.Lawrence.

Fwd: OpenPCR by Josh Perfetto and Tito Jankowski

---------- Forwarded message ----------
From: "Mackenzie Cowell" <mac@diybio.org>
Date: Jun 9, 2010 8:54 PM
Subject: OpenPCR by Josh Perfetto and Tito Jankowski
To: "diybio" <diybio@googlegroups.com>

Josh Perfetto and Tito Jankowski have built a working PCR thermocycler based on a CPU heat-pipe, a very accurate temperature probe, a peltier junction, a computer power supply, an arduino, a custom-milled aluminum block, various electronics, and a sexy laser-cut wood chassis.

Overall, I'm really impressed that they've found a way to combine essentially $300 of consumer products into what amounts to a industry-grade thermocycler.

They demoed it at MakerFaire 2010 this year.  I'm excited about their commitment to openness.   On their website - http://openPCR.org - and in person, they talk about building a platform that fundamentally is more hackable than other options.  So far, it looks good.  I can't wait to test one of these out on my own.  As open hardware licenses (TAPR?) become more widespread, I hope the openPCR team adopts one and blazes a trail for other diybio hardware efforts. 

Check out their site, http://openPCR.org, and consider contributing to their kickstarter project, http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/930368578/openpcr-open-source-biotech-on-your-desktop.

Good luck you guys!

DIY liquid nitrogen generator

You can generate liquid nitrogen (LN2) in the comfort of your own home
with some parts found on eBay. I have proven that this is possible by
purchasing surplus equipment and assembling it as described in this
post. I spent over a year searching eBay, so these parts are not
really easy to find, but the total bill for the whole system was under
$500. The device consumes about 300 to 400 watts of electricity and
needs no consumables (just atmospheric air). The LN2 is produced at a
net rate of about 1 liter per day. This comes out to 9.6 kWh/liter or
$1.15/liter, which is substantially cheaper than having the local
welding store fill up a thermos (granted the thermos must be cooled as
it is filled, thus requiring more than its capacity of LN2).

The most important part of this system is the cryocooler. This is a
device that employs a thermodynamic gas cycle to pump heat through a
very high temperature gradient. Many of these devices are
self-contained and require only an electrical input to start pumping
heat. The crycooler that I used was removed from a surplus RF filter
which used the cryogenic temperatures to maintain a superconducting RF
filter. http://www.suptech.com/home.htm

The crycooler itself has been fairly well documented:
http://books.google.com/books?id=POLgG5mma6IC&pg=PA75&lpg=PA75&dq=sti+cryocooler&source=web&ots=ZTMqWVv8Pu&sig=HbbSzGgnD3fIFxyKJjxFLuNEa9E&hl=en&sa=X&oi=book_result&resnum=1&ct=result

I converted the cryocooler to be water-cooled on the hot end and
attached a heatsink to its cold end. In operation, the cold end with
the heatsink is inserted into the top of a large dewar. Eventually,
the interior of the dewar gets so cold that the air will condense into
a liquid and drip down to the bottom.

The second key part of this system is the nitrogen separation
membrane. The is a device that accepts normal air, and produces
relatively pure nitrogen. The waste products (mostly H2O, O2 and CO2)
are vented into the air. Information regarding these membrane units is
easy to find on the internet, but good luck buying one! They are
nearly all produced for huge industrial installations, and those
manufacturers will not even return phone calls from interested
hobbyists. Asses! I spent a LONG time searching eBay, and eventually
found a very compact unit, which was perfectly suited for this
project. The nitrogen purity is dependent on the mass flow rate
through the device. This means the flow must be carefully monitored
and controlled. I will make another post that describes some fun stuff
to do with LN2.

Nathan,

I'm not sure how far you've read along for this project yet, but are
you aware of the GPCR-Gpa1 fusion strategy for splicing ~arbitrary
metazoans GPCRs into the yeast pheromone sensing pathway?  This allows
one to assay receptor activity using a yeast pheromone reporter strain
(lacZ or GFP).  Many such chimeric strains have been produced to date.

Here are a few open links:

K21st - Essential 21st Century Knowledge (3 new items)

Item 1 (06/04/10 19:20:39 UTC): Part-Human, Part-Machine Transistor Devised : Discovery News

Man and machine can now be linked more intimately than ever, according to a new article in the journal ACS Nano Letters. Scientists have embedded a nano-sized transistor inside a cell-like membrane and powered it using the cell's own fuel.

The research could lead to new types of man-machine interactions where embedded devices could relay information about the inner workings of disease-related proteins inside the cell membrane, and eventually lead to new ways to read, and even influence, brain or nerve cells.

"This device is as close to the seamless marriage of biological and electronic structures as anything else that people did before," said Aleksandr Noy, a scientist at the University of California, Merced who is a co-author on the recent ACS Nano Letters. "We can take proteins, real biological machines, and make them part of a working microelectronic circuit."

via Part-Human, Part-Machine Transistor Devised : Discovery News.


Item 2 (06/04/10 17:53:43 UTC): The latest version of the LittleDog Robot

The small four-legged robot LittleDog, from Boston Dynamics, has acquired an impressive array of improved locomotion skills thanks to researchers at the University of Southern California. The scampering robot shows off some of these skills in a new video, performing deft maneuvers to overcome obstacles and using machine-learning to plan its steps over tricky surfaces.

While its larger counterpart BigDog can recover from unexpected obstacles, like sliding on ice, LittleDog has to more cautiously plan its step to carefully but quickly move over rough, unfamiliar terrain.

DARPA introduced the 5-inch-tall robot a few years ago when it began its robot locomotion initiative, asking several universities to improve LittleDog's learning, control, environment perception and locomotion. At about 5 pounds, LittleDog uses a host of sensors and three motors in each of its four legs, a camera and a machine-learning algorithm to find good footholds autonomously.

The video below from USC shows LittleDog walking autonomously in real-time, successfully navigating rocky terrain, a staircase, and performing special moves to get over barriers and avoid a gap. The program also lets it recover when it falls or stumbles. Neat stuff.

Fwd: BioWeatherMap -- 4 volunteers needed, each with a $1 note

---------- Forwarded message ----------
From: "Jason Bobe" <jasonbobe@gmail.com>
Date: Jun 4, 2010 7:45 AM
Subject: BioWeatherMap -- 4 volunteers needed, each with a $1 note
To: "DIYbio" <diybio@googlegroups.com>

I am looking for 4 volunteers who can send me in the mail today a $1
bill for a citizen science pilot project, preferably by USPS 2 day
priority mail (stamp costs $4.90).  I need to have the bill in my
hands here in Boston by next Wednesday.

I am conducting a "BioWeatherMap" pilot project where we will be using
next generation DNA sequencing to uniquely identify the microbes
living on U.S. or international currency.  For this project, we will
extract the microbial DNA on the surface of the currency you submit
and then utilize a pre-commercial "desktop DNA sequencer" to sequence
a specific portion of the microbial DNA.  This will enable us to
identify the microbes present on each piece of currency.   We aim to
make the microbial DNA sequence data publicly available, alongside the
serial numbers from each bill so you will be able to look for yourself
and see what microbes were hitching a ride in your wallet.  There is
the possibility that you will attain the status of "most (species)
rich wallet" -- a coveted distinction in our society.

I have 4 slots available in the next sequencing run.  The first 4
people to contact me can participate in this round.  I will follow-up
with detailed instructions (3 step process) and mailing address.

If anyone is able to volunteer for this today and put a $1 note in the
mail (today), please send me a note off list: jasonbobe [[[\\
\replace///]]] gmail

Thanks!
Jason
