By Ingrid Rügge, Prof. Otthein Herzog

Immer kleiner werdende machine und Informationstechnik sowie die vielerorts flächendeckende drahtlose Vernetzung tragen zur Verbreitung von „Mobile ideas“ bei. Neue Technologien (Wearable Computing, Ambient Intelligence, clever outfits) kommen inzwischen auch in Einsatzbereichen wie Wartung und Instandhaltung, Logistik oder Gesundheitswesen zum Einsatz. Der Marktanteil dieser neuen Technologien bleibt jedoch bisher deutlich hinter den Prognosen zurück.

Ingrid Rügge führt eine umfassende Recherche technischer Komponenten für cellular suggestions sowie eine Bestandsaufnahme bereits vorhandener oder konzipierter Lösungen durch. Die Autorin arbeitet deren jeweilige spezifische Eigenschaften heraus und zeigt Möglichkeiten und Grenzen auf. Sie stellt die technischen Fakten den qualitativ ermittelten Anforderungen und Erwartungen aus den potenziellen Einsatzbereichen gegenüber. Die Erkenntnisse geben Hinweise darauf, wie cellular strategies entwickelt werden sollten, auf welche Probleme frühzeitig geachtet werden kann und welche Kompetenzen in den verschiedenen Phasen des Designprozesses einbezogen werden sollten.

Nitrogen fixation, being an enormous life-supporting approach on the planet, has attracted the curiosity of researchers for a couple of century. Nitrogen fixation is chargeable for the conversion of "inert" dinitrogen (N ) fuel from the atmos­ z phere into usable ammonia, changing the fastened nitrogen always being misplaced to the ambience through the denitrification technique. all over the world agricultural productiveness is deter­ mined through the supply of mounted nitrogen in all its types, which the continuously increas­ ing human inhabitants will depend on for survival. a global momentum is constructing within the use of biofertilizers to enhance legume and non-legume crop yields and within the examine of genomics during this quarter. New stories are being undertaken in numerous laboratories to check novel nitrogen-fixing structures, together with non-legume vegetation. The North American meetings on Symbiotic Nitrogen Fixation have periodically chronicled the advances in our wisdom of this region. For the 1st time, this convention was once held in Mexico. hence, all 3 North Amer­ ican international locations were hosts for this occasion.

Modem technology isn't a solitary career. It calls for heavy investments in apparatus, offers, constructions and box features. Scientists desire a band of fellow explorers with whom to percentage the journey, speak about experiments and effects, and, possibly most significantly, permit the checking out and retesting in their hypotheses through themselves and by way of others. This used to be definitely the case in my very own learn which led finally to the invention of the Hepatitis B virus, and later to the vaccine for it. clinical education is particularly really expert, while the ideas to difficulties go beyond slender disciplinary borders.
