One of the goals of stem cell biologycell biology is to understand gene regulatory networks and cell-cell interactions for the purpose of engineering of morphogenesis. Tissue engineering and 3D cell culture techniques have been used to produce organoids and other forms of self-organizing tissues including synthetic mouse embryos. Manipulation of transcription factors, proteins the regulate genes can be used to induce morphogenesis.
Casper is an implementation of proof of stake consensus algorithm in development for the Ethereum platform. Proof of stake is an alternative consensus method to the proof of work algorithm commonly used in many blockchain projects such as BitcoinBitcoin. In proof of stake, block creators are pseudorandomly chosen from a pool of validators based on the amount of coins they stake — this is sometimes referred to as virtual mining. Casper is the Ethereum foundation's proof of stake implementation. Among other design features, it is designed to solve the nothing-at-stake problem by requiring validators to offer a stake of their coins which can then be slashed under specific protocol conditions whereby the network determines malicious action by that validator.
