  2. A KNOWLEDGE-BASED TUTORING SYSTEM WITH STUDENT-DRIVER, GRAPHIC INTERFACE, FOR TEACHING ARABIC ON MICROCOMPUTER

    SBC: New Sage            Topic: N/A

    NEW SAGE WILL DEVELOP SOFTWARE THAT CAN TEACH BEGINNING ARABIC (AND PERSIAN) SKILLS. THE SYSTEM WILL BE A RESPONSIVE, STUDENT-DRIVEN, INTERACTIVE LEARNING ENVIRONMENT USING MACINTOSH COMPUTERS. KEY TO THE DESIGN IS THE INTEGRATION OF SEVERAL KNOWLEDGE BASES INTO THE INSTRUCTIONAL DESIGN: 1) A RICH (BUT NOT LARGE) DICTIONARY -- FOR KNOWLEDGE OF WORD MEANINGS, 2) LINGUISTIC RULES -- FOR GENERATION A ...

  3. A PERSONAL COMPUTER CONTROLLER FOR MULTI-HANDICAPPED BLIND INDIVIDUALS

    SBC: WESTEST ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    PERSONAL COMPUTERS ARE NORMALLY CONTROLLED BY ENTERING DATA INTO A KEYBOARD AND MONITORING THE RESULTS ON A VIDEO TERMINAL. MANY PEOPLE WHO ARE PHYSICALLY HANDICAPPED CANNOTUSE KEYBOARDS AND VIDEO TERMINALS ARE NOT SUITABLE FOR THE BLIND. EXISTING DEVICES WHICH HELP THE HANDICAPPED OVERCOMETHESE BARRIERS ARE EITHER SLOW AND CUMBERSOME OR USE CUSTOM SOFTWARE WHICH RESTRICTS THEIR USE. WESTEST ENGIN ...

  4. SOLID-STATE CLINICAL GAS ANALYZER

    SBC: Albion Instruments            Topic: N/A

    A SMALLER, LIGHTER, MORE EFFICIENT, AND MORE RELIABLE CLINICAL GAS ANALYZER FOR RESPIRATORY AND ANESTHETIC GAS MONITORING IS NEEDED. EXISTING LASER RAMAN-BASED INSTRUMENTATION USES A LARGE, HEAVY, AND EXTREMELY INEFFICIENT (0.1 PERCENT) ARGON ION LASER WITH AN INTRACAVITY GAS CELL. THE LONG-TERM OBJECTIVE OF THIS STUDYIS TO IMPLEMENT A SOLID-STATE ALTERNATIVE TO THE EXISTING ION LASER. SUCH A LASE ...

  6. NEW HIGH-STRENGTH HYDROGEL MATERIALS

    SBC: Brewer Science Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    SYNTHETIC HYDROGELS ARE NOT STRONG ENOUGH TO SERVE IN MANY THERAPEUTIC AND PROSTHETIC APPLICATIONS. ONE POTENTIAL WAY OF INCREASING THEIR STRENGTH, BUT WITHOUT SERIOUSLY REDUCINGTHEIR WATER UPTAKE, IS TO FORM THE GEL NETWORK FROM TWO POLYMER SPECIES. ONE POLYMER COMPONENT WOULD BE CHOSEN TO GIVE GOOD WATER UPTAKE PROPERTIES, WHILE THE OTHER WOULD BE CHOSEN TO PROVIDE GOOD MECHANICAL STRENGTH. IN P ...

  7. FLOW/STERIC FFF--A NEW METHOD FOR CELL SEPARATIONS

    SBC: Fffractionation, Llc.            Topic: N/A

    FLOW/STERIC FIELD-FLOW FRACTIONATION (FLOW/STFFF) IS A RECENTLY DEVELOPED METHOD WITH EXTRAORDINARY SPEED AND RESOLVING POWER DESIGNED TO SEPARATE PARTICULATE MATERIALS FALLING ROUGHLY IN THE 1 TO 100 MUM PARTICLE DIAMETER RANGE. THE OBJECT OF THIS PROJECT IS TO EXAMINE THE POTENTIAL OF CONVERTING THIS RESEARCH FINDING INTO A FAST AND RELIABLE TOOL FOR THE FRACTIONATION AND CHARACTERIZATIONOF CELL ...

  8. A NEW METHOD FOR GENERATING OVERLAPPING DNA SUBCLONES

    SBC: Gold Biotechnology Inc            Topic: N/A

    WE DESCRIBE A NEW METHOD FOR GENERATING OVERLAPPING FRAGMENTS FOR USE IN DNA SEQUENCING. THIS PROCEDURE IS UNIQUE BECAUSE NO EXONUCLEASES OR ENDONDCLEASES ARE REQUIRED. THIS METHOD IMPROVES UPON OTHER PROCEDURES IN SEVERAL WAYS. NO TIMED ENZYMATIC REACTION IS NECESSARY TO PRODUCE THE DELETIONS. THE DELETIONS ARE IDENTIFIED BY BLUE/WHITE SCREENING. THE PREPARATION OF LARGE AMOUNTS OF DNA IS UNNECES ...
