With the development of science, traditional Sanger sequencing has failed to meet new requirements of low cost, high throughput and fast in speed.
Recent years, with the discovery and promotion of second-generation sequencing technology, the gene sequencing speed has increased greatly while achieving a substantial decline in costs, making large-scale application of genome sequencing possible. Now, the cost of personal whole genome sequencing is about 5,000$, and is expected to decreased to less than $ 1,000 in the next few years.
The rapid development of sequencing technology will promote the massive accumulation of DNA sequencing data, accompanied by the accumulation of the corresponding individual diseases, signs and other data at the same time. When we accumulate enough data, how to understand these data will be critical. On the micro level, generations of molecular biologists’ studying the effects of apparent biological traits genes exert on utilizing technologies like gene knockout have … Read More
Hybrid vehicles have become more and more popular in the U.S. since Toyota introduced the Prius. This fuel efficient vehicle is equipped with a small engine that is powered commonly by gasoline. Its fuel efficiency is due to the use of an electric motor which supplies the additional power to aid the engine.
While a small engine may not be suitable for some driving conditions, the electric motor powered by an on board battery pack makes the power produced by the small engine adequate enough. But designers and engineers in the auto industry are constantly looking for ways to improve the performance of a hybrid vehicle. Turbodyne Technologies Inc. is one of the companies looking for ways to improve the performance of hybrid cars. Recently, the company announced that they have developed a new technology which is aimed to help hybrid vehicles perform even better.
Turbodyne has improved the design … Read More
Teaching with technology helps to expand student learning by assistant instructional objectives. However, it can be thought-provoking to select the best technology tools while not losing sight of the goal for student learning. An expert can find creative and constructive ways to integrate technology into our class.
What do we mean by technology?
The term technology refers to the development of the techniques and tools we use to solve problems or achieve goals. Technology can encompass all kinds of tools from low-tech pencils, paper, a chalkboard to the use of presentation software, or high-tech tablets, online collaboration and conference tools and more. the newest technologies allow us to try things in physical and virtual classrooms that were not possible before.
How can technology help students?
Technology can help a student through the following ways:
1. Online collaboration tools: Technology has helped the students & instructors to share document online, editing … Read More
The Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) is an [information systems] theory that models how users come to accept and use a technology. The model suggests that when users are presented with a new software package, a number of factors influence their decision about how and when they will use it, notably:
o Perceived usefulness (PU)
“The degree to which a person believes that using a particular system would enhance his or her job performance”.
By Fred Davis
o Perceived ease-of-use (EOU)
“The degree to which a person believes that using a particular system would be free from effort”.
By Fred Davis
The technology acceptance model is one of the most influential extensions of Ajzen and Fishbein’s theory of reasoned action (TRA) in the literature. It was developed by Fred Davis and Richard Bagozzi. TAM replaces many of TRA’s attitude measures with the two technology acceptance measures, ease of use, and usefulness. … Read More
A hobby is a non profitable human choice of act for passing leisure time. Practising technological facts are very popular and common choice as a hobby. This kind of hobbyist already has a preference and basic knowledge in science and they like to learn more and apply it in making technical things. Technology dependent pastimes are not for everybody for its relative complexity.
Electronics is a hobby for many people and they like to make electronics products by following circuit design. They have an interest in electronics and gain enough knowledge in this field. It is not always mandatory to have an academic education to make electronics products.
Someone can start with some basic knowledge and by practising he may gain lots of practical experiences. Amateur electronics hobbyist likes to make things for their own pleasure but in this process, they may make some good products and make some money … Read More

In my profession, it is common to ask a lot of questions. Truly, it’s necessary. A Virtual Assistant is someone who has to know as much as possible about a particular client’s systems or way of doing things in order to best configure and make use of available technology to help them do it better, faster, for less cost — whatever the client is looking to gain.
I started my VA career almost eight years ago and limit my practice to virtual assistance to the legal industry. Over the years, I have asked many attorneys, law firm administrators, paralegals, HR managers, private investigators, IT administrators, managing partners, office managers, secretaries and others about the processes used at their firms. Some use document management software, some don’t. Some have websites, some don’t. Almost without fail, when asked what the attorneys use for dictation, the most common response: a tape recorder.
That’s … Read More
