  • Patent number: 10775955
    Abstract: A design application allows an end-user to define an engineering problem, and then synthesizes a spectrum of design options that solve the engineering problem. The design application then generates various tools to allow the end-user to explore that spectrum of design options. The design application allows the end-user to compare various attributes of each design option, and to filter the spectrum of design options based on those attributes. In response to end-user selections of certain design options, the design application identifies other similar design options, and then displays these design options to the end-user.

  • Patent number: 10633701
    Abstract: The present invention relates to systems and methods for sequencing nucleic acids, including sequencing nucleic acids in fluidic droplets. In one set of embodiments, the method employs sequencing by hybridization using droplets such as microfluidic droplets. In some embodiments, droplets are formed which include a target nucleic acid, a nucleic acid probe, and at least one identification element, such as a fluorescent particle. The nucleic acid probes that hybridize to the target nucleic acid are determined, in some instances, by determining the at least one identification element. The nucleic acid probes that hybridize to the target nucleic acid may be used to determine the sequence of the target nucleic acid. In certain instances, the microfluidic droplets are provided with reagents that modify the nucleic acid probe. In some cases, a droplet, such as those described above, is deformed such that the components of the droplets individually pass a target area.

  • Patent number: 10567997
    Abstract: A new device is deployed to an area in which a network is provided. The new device may join the network using a single handshake via a neighboring device that is a member of the network and register with a network management system managing the network. If the network is overloaded or has limited bandwidth remaining, the network may refuse to admit the new device, or if the new device is isolated, may force some devices that are members of the network to leave or migrate from the network to allow the isolated device to join the network.
