ATIP02.028: Micro Fuel Cells: Key University Research in Japan

ABSTRACT: Fuel cells for small consumer electronic devices are being actively researched in Japan. This report summarizes the work at several key university labs.

Date: 17 July 2002
ATIP02.029: Indian Nanotechnology R&D

ABSTRACT: This report describes a number of important Indian research efforts in nanotechnology. It expands upon and complements the earlier report, ATIP02.021: Nanomaterials Research in India.

Date: 24 July 2002
ATIP02.030: Indian BioTech Opportunities

ABSTRACT: This report, expanding on earlier ATIP reports, summarizes the current trends and state of the biotech environment in India, achievements and failures, problems faced as the industry matures, and comprehensive information about the future opportunities in the Indian biotechnology industry.

ATIP02.031: DNA Computing in Japan

ABSTRACT: DNA computing, also known as molecular computing, is an attempt to harness the architecture of molecules and their inherent combinatorial complexity to solve massively parallel computational problems. After L. M. Adelman’s landmark paper concerning the construction of a general-purpose computer using biological molecules was published in 1994, interest in this field has grown steadily. Current researchers are no longer envisioning DNA computers as a replacement to modern digital silicon based computers. Rather, they are looking at new applications of these computers to efficiently solve problems in biotechnology and nanotechnology. This report identifies prominent researchers and research programs in Japan within the area of DNA computing.

ATIP offers a full range of information services including reports, assessments, briefings, visits, sample procurements, workshops, cultural/business sensitivity training, and liaison activities, all performed by our on-the- ground multilingual experts.
