Video: Brainstorm Episode 150
This week on Brainstorm, our top story comes from the world of biotechnology. A team at Rice University has developed a way to make chimeric viruses for use in enhanced gene therapies. Oregon State University researchers have developed a deceptively simple way to produce silicon nanostructures that can be used in future advanced technologies, such as medical sensors, thermo electrics, and energy storage. Finally an ecological study from the University of Oxford highlights the underappreciated value of large animals to the dispersal of nutrients through the environment.
