BioJapan 2008

23.05.2008
Yokohama, Japan - BioJapan 2008 aims to contribute to development of the bioindustry.

It offers various programs integrating exhibitions and seminars, show the latest developments in the industry, and promote global business networking.

This is a UK-Japan 2008 event.

While many consider Japan's economy to be on the track to recovery, trends in the U.S. economy and soaring oil prices may have an adverse effect on economic conditions both in Japan and overseas.

To ensure sustainable development in the future, it is essential for Japan to promote innovation so as to create competitive industries, cultivate social value, and generate jobs and profits, while forging partnerships with nations in Asia and other regions in the world.

The bioindustry is expected to become a driving force to help achieve these goals. Not only is the bioindustry closely related to health, food, energy, the environment, and other aspects directly affecting people's quality of life, but it also plays a significant role in many other industries including pharmaceutical, food, chemical, machine, and IT industries. Moreover, the intricate integration of science and technology in the industry has stimulated business activity on a global scale.

In the field of healthcare, personalized medicine and preventative care have finally begun to take form and generated new businesses such as functional foods. Furthermore, the Hokkaido Toyako G8 Summit in 2008, which will most certainly focus on issues of global warming, will further accelerate utilization of biofuels and biomass plastics.

BioJapan 2008, with the aim of contributing to development of the bioindustry, will offer various programs integrating exhibitions and seminars, show the latest developments in the industry, and promote global business networking.

Im Focus: The pyrenoid is a carbon-fixing liquid droplet

Plants and algae use the enzyme Rubisco to fix carbon dioxide, removing it from the atmosphere and converting it into biomass. Algae have figured out a way to increase the efficiency of carbon fixation. They gather most of their Rubisco into a ball-shaped microcompartment called the pyrenoid, which they flood with a high local concentration of carbon dioxide. A team of scientists at Princeton University, the Carnegie Institution for Science, Stanford University and the Max Plank Institute of Biochemistry have unravelled the mysteries of how the pyrenoid is assembled. These insights can help to engineer crops that remove more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere while producing more food.

Im Focus: Highly precise wiring in the Cerebral Cortex

Our brains house extremely complex neuronal circuits, whose detailed structures are still largely unknown. This is especially true for the so-called cerebral cortex of mammals, where among other things vision, thoughts or spatial orientation are being computed. Here the rules by which nerve cells are connected to each other are only partly understood. A team of scientists around Moritz Helmstaedter at the Frankfiurt Max Planck Institute for Brain Research and Helene Schmidt (Humboldt University in Berlin) have now discovered a surprisingly precise nerve cell connectivity pattern in the part of the cerebral cortex that is responsible for orienting the individual animal or human in space.

The researchers report online in Nature (Schmidt et al., 2017. Axonal synapse sorting in medial entorhinal cortex, DOI: 10.1038/nature24005) that synapses in...

New technique promises tunable laser devices

Whispering gallery mode (WGM) resonators are used to make tiny micro-lasers, sensors, switches, routers and other devices. These tiny structures rely on a...

Im Focus: Ultrafast snapshots of relaxing electrons in solids

Using ultrafast flashes of laser and x-ray radiation, scientists at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics (Garching, Germany) took snapshots of the briefest electron motion inside a solid material to date. The electron motion lasted only 750 billionths of the billionth of a second before it fainted, setting a new record of human capability to capture ultrafast processes inside solids!

When x-rays shine onto solid materials or large molecules, an electron is pushed away from its original place near the nucleus of the atom, leaving a hole...

Im Focus: Quantum Sensors Decipher Magnetic Ordering in a New Semiconducting Material

For the first time, physicists have successfully imaged spiral magnetic ordering in a multiferroic material. These materials are considered highly promising candidates for future data storage media. The researchers were able to prove their findings using unique quantum sensors that were developed at Basel University and that can analyze electromagnetic fields on the nanometer scale. The results – obtained by scientists from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics, the Swiss Nanoscience Institute, the University of Montpellier and several laboratories from University Paris-Saclay – were recently published in the journal Nature.

Multiferroics are materials that simultaneously react to electric and magnetic fields. These two properties are rarely found together, and their combined...
