NorayBio, a bioinformatics company located at the Bizkaia Technological Park (Basque Country) and specialising in developing software for the biosciences, has launched a new software for cancer research on to the market - BITIA, primarily aimed at research centres and cancer wards in hospitals.
BITIA aims to help oncologists to answer the question that has been around for some time: Why is it that two patients with very similar pathology profiles respond in distinct ways to treatment? It is in the genes that the answer has been looked for and recent studies have revealed that the differentiated expression of some genes is involved in the risk of developing metastasis in some kinds of cancer. The BITIA software establishes relations between genic data and clinical data of cancer patients, providing new prognostic factors. In this way, BITIA aims to be a support tool for oncologists when taking decisions.
BITIA has been designed and developed by NorayBio in collaboration with the Professor of Oncology and Palliative Medicine at the Autonomous University of Madrid and the Cancer Medical Service at the La Paz University Hospital, directed by Professor Dr. Manuel Gonzalez Barón. The involvement in this project of a multidisciplinary team of cancer specialists, molecular biologists, software engineers and statisticians has enabled the development of an easy-to-use and powerful tool for the scientific and medical community.

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.
The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".
Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
