The Plant Pulse April 20, 2012, Robots in need of names The St. Louis Beacon The Danforth Center is spotlighting the arrival of these robots because they represent what Mockler calls “enabling technology.” The human genome project is a result of such enabling technology. Scientists have known how to determine the sequence of the nucleotide building blocks of a gene’s DNA for a fairly long time. However, the method was tedious and time consuming. There was no hope of sequencing
