Avocadoes of the future look secure thanks to Queensland student Chris O’Brien’s cryogenics work – ABC News

For the first time, an Australian cryogenics scientist has shown that avocado shoot tips can be successfully frozen and revived and that's great news for future generations of the fruit.

University of Queensland PhD student Chris O'Brien has achieved what no-one else has been able to freezing the tips of avocado shoots in liquid nitrogen, then successfully reviving them to preserve valuable genetic lines for the next generations.

In specialised gene banks around the world, germplasm living genetic resources including seeds and plant tissue has been frozen and stored in large, liquid-nitrogen-cooled cryogenic vats.

These libraries of suspended life are a way to save biological diversity and preserve plants prized for their rarity, yield, taste, nutritional qualities and their resistance to drought, diseases and pests.

While scientists have been able to freeze and revive dozens of genetic lines of other agricultural plant species including strawberries, apples and potatoes - avocados have proved to be especially stubborn.

Before an excited Mr O'Brien discovered green shoots under his microscope, scientists' attempts to place 'true to type' avocado tissue which creates clones of the parent plant on those shelves, kept turning to brown mush.

"It was a massive achievement no-one's been able to cryopreserve avocado from shoot tips," Mr O'Brien said.

Priming the tips with vitamin C and using pre-treatments, including applying sucrose to them, and exposing them to cold temperatures, helped him to succeed where others had failed.

"It's a big breakthrough because ... if a farmer thinks his tree's got good salinity tolerance, or he likes its yield and he's worried about losing that tree, you can go get cuttings off that and we can cryopreserve those cuttings in liquid nitrogen, which is storage at 196 C and they can stay indefinitely."

Mr O'Brien said the aim was to develop a "core collection of avocado genetics".

Professor Neena Mitter, from the University of Queensland's Centre for Horticultural Science, said the advancement was needed because of the "recalcitrant" nature of avocado seeds.

"You cannot store seeds of avocado, they'll just rot, there's no way you can store them. At present all the germplasm of avocados across the globe is maintained as trees in the field," Dr Mitter said.

"But when you think about it, if a bushfire happens, if a disease comes in, if a cyclone happens, anything can destroy your field repository."

Many of those genetically valuable trees are located in threatened areas in developing countries where up to 40 per cent of the forest cover has been lost.

'We've got supervisors over in the Huntington Botanical Gardens [in San Marino, California] who have been great supporters of my PhD, and the California industry's quite interested as well," Mr O'Brien said.

"In Florida there's a Laurel wilt which is attacking avocados and they're quite worried about that because with all their germplasm stored in the field they're losing trees and there's no way of saving them.

"If we can use the cryopreservation to conserve these trees, they can be revived from liquid nitrogen and planted back out in the field to use in breeding programs to develop new cultivars."

Avocados Australia CEO John Tyas praised the work being done at the University of Queensland's laboratories.

"The benefit of being able to cryopreserve avocado trees is you can store a whole lot of germplasm for future generations without taking up lots of space maintaining large trees in orchards," he said.

Up to 500 plants have been propagated from one shoot tip and 80 are now growing in the university's glass house.

Mr O'Brien has built on the work of University of Queensland PhD graduate Dr Jayeni Hiti Bandaralage who developed a way to propagate multiple plants from tissue culture.

The scientists will team up with a nursery to run field trials, monitoring the trees for flowering times and fruit quality.

Apart from his contribution to the culinary world, Mr O'Brien's breakthrough also could be a game-changer for the transportation of genetic materials between countries.

"It could be possible that this is the future of transporting avocado material," Dr Mitter said.

She said that, at present, "you cannot import plants or rooted plants or plants and soil".

"So, if you want to work on germplasm from a different country which has good characteristics, which is disease resistant, or very yielding, or has a particular taste or flavour that you would like it's a very long-term, time-consuming process. This method not only converts the germplasm but it is disease free," she said.

COVID-19 has slowed Mr O'Brien's research but he plans to finish his PhD this year.

He has already had articles published in Plant Cell, Tissue and Organ Culture and Scientia Horticulturae.

Can Silicon Valley beat ageing? The five technologies that could help – Telegraph.co.uk

Rossiter hopes that keeping elderly people mobile for longer could keep them happy and out of care homes, potentially prolonging their life.

A current stumbling block is finding a power source small enough to work inside the body, but Rossiter hopes that that wireless charging could be used in the future.

We could implant the power supply into the body along with the muscles, he says. And then when you're lying in bed, the bed itself is charging your muscles.

Many technology start-ups are turning to artificial intelligence (AI) as a way to chew through the vast amounts of data about diseases and existing medicines in an attempt to discover new drugs, or repurpose existing ones.

Start-ups such as London-headquartered BenevolentAI hope that their use of machine learning, a form of AI which can gradually teach itself, could lead to innovative treatments that can slow down the ageing process.

Its a concept which has excited anti-ageing researchers such as Aubrey de Grey, the chief science officer of the SENS Foundation.

A very important advance has been made over the past few years, he says. In the anti-ageing space, it's particularly important.

The use of state of the art machine learning techniques is really working, he adds.

Siow hopes that these companies could find new uses for anti-inflammatory drugs, which could help to slow down the ageing process.

That is a hot area of research. It's not a wonder pill, but it could be.

Making the human body so cold that it improves circulation or enables the preservation of organs after death is an established concept. Now, a new generation of technology businesses are hoping to breathe new life into the field.

Cryonics, preserving our bodies after death in the hope that they could one day be brought back to life, is perhaps the most popular manifestation of this technology. One advocate for this is de Grey, a long term customer of cryonic business Alcor and a member of its scientific advisory board.

Nectome is hoping to shake up the field. It has received backing from the prominent Silicon Valley start-up accelerator Y Combinator, which also backed Stripe, Airbnb and Reddit.

The business hopes to use cryonics to preserve peoples brains. On its website, it says it considers the idea of long-term memory extraction to be underexplored.

Consumer IoT is broken and our stupid optimism is to blame – Stacey on IoT

Some of us have a closet full of connected devices that at one time represented the cutting edge of smart home tech devices like the Revolv hub, the Lighthouse camera, the Jibo robot, the Petnet feeder, and the original Sonos speakers. And while most of us were able to shrug off the end of Juicero and the related loss of $400 as the inevitable cost of living the early adopter lifestyle, the perception of expensive, short-lived gadgets haunts consumer IoT.

Every time these stories hit the tech press or the mainstream media, a much larger group of people congratulate themselves for not buying into the latest hype around connected devices and smart homes. They recognize that this tech is new, unproven, and likely not as convenient or necessary as its creators claim. Which is why even more than the lack of standards that we in the smart home world constantly bemoan the lack of faith in the life of a connected product hurts the IoT. After all, if you cant convince someone to buy a connected product in the first place, theyll never reach the point where theyll want it to interoperate with other devices.

So whats the industry to do? The common demand after a product fails and the companies that make them tell their customers theyre turning off the servers (if they do, in fact, tell customers that) is to open-source the device code so the tech-savvy early adopters can keep the device operational. But while this sounds great, its akin to cryonically freezing your head in the hopes of coming back to life after death.

Getting the code running on a connected device without having access to the backend cloud code and the application code may allow the device to run, but the overall experience will suffer. The device may work, but it wont have a good interface (or youll have to build and maintain it) and it wont have a cloud component for remote access and other functionality (unless you build and maintain it). Just like your newly thawed head will need a body, the open-source device code needs someone to build and maintain a cloud backend and a mobile application.

There are third-party companies such asDigital Dream Labs, which raised funds to take over the support and development of the Anki Vector robot, that are attempting to take device code and build infrastructure around it. But doing so requires expertise, time, and money.Are customers willing to pay someone a second time just to keep their devices running?

So when asking a company to open up its source code for a connected device, ask yourself if your frozen brain is successfully revived, if that would be enough for you.

Such partial resurrection was the plan all the way back in 2015 when we starting seriously discussing what happens when connected products fail. Some companies put code in escrow so people could have it later and maintain it. In the meantime, I encouraged venture firms, entrepreneurs, and development shops to think about failure and how their product might gracefully degrade to give the consumer time to come to terms with the loss.

Now I realize that keeping code in escrow and thinking about failure are only part of the solution. Granted, because people crazy enough to build a connected pet feeder are often stupidly optimistic, its still good advice. Please do think about what happens if your business fails so you can build a decent experience for the end consumer. Also, set milestones that indicate failure so you can warn your customers in time and perhaps allocate some of the diminished cash on hand to ensuring a graceful shutdown.

By far the greatest challenge for connected device companies is the ongoing cost of operating those devices. An investor in Mellow, the maker of a connected sous vide machine that recently told customers they needed to pay a subscription fee or see certain features vanish, explained the issue. He told me that the company has roughly $4,000 in monthly costs associated with the device and those costs go up the more people use it. And that doesnt include the ongoing costs associated with having a developer update the Android and iOS apps.

Some of those monthly bills might be lowered by choosing a different cloud architecture or security platform, but every connected device company has to account for ongoing maintenance costs. And the more features a company adds and the more customers it has, the higher those costs tend to go. At an event I hosted in August, Matt Van Horn, CEO of June Life, said that his companys cloud bill continues to rise, and he doesnt have the resources or cloud infrastructure that Amazon or Google do.

So one option might be to only buy gadgets made by those companies, since I doubt AWS is going to shut Alexa down if that business unit stops paying its cloud bills. But thats a really limiting option for consumers and for innovation in the sector overall. Nate Williams, a former employee at August and now an investor at Union Labs Ventures, says he thinks some kind of model built around an independent organization that companies pay into, and that will operate and support a device and the supporting server code going forward, might help.

He initially likened it to a homeowners association for smart home devices, but given the negative connotations around HOAs then clarified that he was seeking a sense of shared responsibility as opposed to something punitive. But I think having a little enforcement might actually be good. We could see companies pay into an organization that ensures a product has a year or 6 months of cloud and developer costs in escrow to at least ensure a failed company can keep a product running for a little while longer after giving customers notice that it will die.

That organization should also have some sort of provision for getting the remaining stock of a defunct product off the shelves. Indeed, Id love to see retailers like Best Buy or Amazon get involved. Kickstarter or Indiegogo might also be good members of such an organization to add a little more credibility to the products launched on their platform.

This sort of upfront cash that would be held in escrow to cover six months of cloud and developer costs would be a burden for smaller startups or folks trying to build something in their garage. It would be great to see scholarships or other models arise that could pay those costs for a company that cant otherwise afford it. It could be kind of like a pension plan for IoT devices.

This may not be the right solution, but failed consumer IoT devices or abrupt changes in the business model for connected devices are a very real problem that holds back adoption. Id love to see us set aside optimism so we could focus on what to do if the companies behind these products fail.

There’s no reason to fear death when you believe in Jesus – Franklin News Post

Some people are scared to talk about it or even think about it. It is something that science cant change. Some very optimistic souls like baseball star Ted Williams and 168 others have been cryonically preserved, requesting their bodies or heads remain frozen in chambers filled with liquid nitrogen at minus 320 degrees Fahrenheit. The $200,000 fee should cover cold storage costs for decades to come. The hope is that one day those patients will live again.

Ive often caught myself saying, If I die, go ahead and do thus and so with my body, only to realize I should be saying, When I die do this with my body and my estate. Actually Ive never even thought about having my body frozen. I struggle to bear up in winters cold weather, but putting humor aside, how do we deal with our own mortality?

I often think of a tale, I heard related on radio, by the old Smokey Mountain evangelist, Vance Havner. He tells of a granddad taking his grandson fishing. While the boy is intent on watching his fishing line, grandfather catches a bumble bee and with tweezers removes the bees stinger. Then as an object lesson he puts the harmless bee down into the back of the boys shirt. Papa, whyd you do this to me, Im gonna get stung! cried the little fellow. Calmly grandfather explained a spiritual reality; for those who trust in Jesus, deaths sting has been removed. Oh yes, the older man explained, death will buzz around and try to frighten you but there need be no fear of it, because for those who trust that Jesus died on the cross to forgive their sins, they are free from the fear of death.
