Mizzou Engineering undergraduate Kyle Lang and faculty mentor Caixia Wan were among the 928 attendees from 34 countries and 42 states who descended on Des Moines, Iowa this summer for BIO World Congress 2019. This unique conference, focusing on the greater bioeconomy, presented the perfect venue for the first meeting of Cohort 3 of the Consortium for…

Light-matter interaction without interference — ScienceDaily

An efficient light-matter interface might constitute the foundation of quantum communication. However, certain structures that are formed during the growth process interfere with the signal. Certain semiconductor structures, so-called quantum dots, might constitute the foundation of quantum communication. They are an efficient interface between matter and light, with photons (light particles) emitted by the quantum dots transporting information across large distances. However, structures form by default during the manufacture of quantum dots that interfere with communication. Researchers at the University…

Bridge Program fosters success for first-year engineers

A total of 40 incoming freshmen participated in this year’s Bridge Program. Photo by Liz Lannin. Transitioning to college is tough, and transitioning into a demanding major such as engineering is even tougher. That’s why Mizzou Engineering debuted its Engineering Success Bridge Program in 2018, then expanded it to a month-long program for 2019. The four-week-long camp gives students an idea of what to expect once their college journeys begin in earnest. The program is free to all participants thanks…

Applying Netflix DevOps Patterns to Windows – Netflix TechBlog

Baking Windows with Packer By Justin Phelps and Manuel Correa Customizing Windows images at Netflix was a manual, error-prone, and time consuming process. In this blog post, we describe how we improved the methodology, which technologies we leveraged, and how this has improved service deployment and consistency. In the Netflix full cycle DevOps culture the team responsible for building a service is also responsible for deploying, testing, infrastructure, and operation of that service. A key responsibility of Netflix engineers is…

ASEE recognizes MU Engineering for commitment to diversity, inclusion

The ASEE selected Mizzou Engineering for a Bronze Level award, the highest given out in this recognition cycle. The American Society for Engineering Education recently launched their Diversity Recognition Program to recognize schools and colleges of engineering for their commitment to diversity and inclusion. Schools committed to the Dean’s Diversity Pledge in 2017 followed by an application for the Diversity Recognition Program outlining their efforts in the area. Each institution was reviewed twice by a 24-person panel. Mizzou Engineering’s efforts…

Don’t mix sodium hydride with polar aprotic solvents – The Safety Zone

Posted By Jyllian Kemsley on Aug 21, 2019 in Accidents, Featured | Combining sodium hydride with some solvents can be a bad idea, as a group of researchers from Corteva Agriscience and Dow Chemical remind the chemistry community in Organic Process Research & Development ,(2019, DOI: 10.1021/acs.oprd.9b00276). An intact calorimetry cell (left) and a ruptured cell the authors used to study the explosive risk of NaH in DMSO. These cells typically rupture at pressures in excess of…

Advancing AI: A Conversation with Jeff Clune, Senior Research Manager at Uber

The past few months have been a whirlwind for Jeff Clune, Senior Research Manager at Uber and a founding member of Uber AI Labs. In June 2019, research by him and his collaborators on POET, an algorithm that generates its own challenges and learns to solve them, took home a best paper award at GECCO; in July, a paper he co-wrote earlier in his career was named Outstanding Publication of the Decade by the International Society for Artificial Life; and,…

RunBMC: OCP hardware spec solves data center BMC pain points

Open source is not just for software. The same benefits of rapid innovation and community validation apply to hardware specifications as well. That’s why I’m happy to write that the v1.0 of the RunBMC hardware spec has been contributed to Open Compute Project (OCP). Before I get into what BMCs (baseboard management controllers) are and why modern data centers are dependent on them, let’s zoom out to what companies operating at cloud scale have learned. Cloud software companies like Dropbox…

Antibody binds Fc receptor not only with its Fc trunk but also through its Fab arm — ScienceDaily

“In our immune system, antibodies recognize viruses, bacteria and even cancer cells through their Fab arms, initiating recruitment of leucocytes for the destruction of these invaders. The recruitment is mediated by receptors on the leucocytes which, to date, have been supposed to bind the Fc portion of the antibody and have therefore been termed Fc receptors. This textbook view has been established based on cumulative data obtained primarily using Fab and Fc fragments cleaved from antibody molecules. The collaborative groups…
