ontrolling gene expression. His work, which is a valuable resource for the global stem cell community, is highly cited. At 36, Dr Ng from the Genome Institute of Singapore and the National University of Singapore is one of the youngest recipients of the National Science Award.

  • Assoc Prof Uttam Surana from the Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology examined the intricacies of cell division, one of the most fundamental activities of living cells that allow them to multiply. He uncovered novel schemes used to regulate cell division and to maintain chromosome stability in yeast cells. Using his understanding of cell cycle coordination, he designed genetic screens to identify compounds that could prevent division and induce cell death in cancer cells.

  • The team comprising Prof AJ (Jon) Berrick and Assoc Prof Wu Jie from the National University of Singapores Department of Mathematics uncovered deep connections between algebraic topology and the theory of braids. This fundamental work which brought together two branches of mathematics lays the foundation for other researchers to apply the mathematical structures to situations requiring precise control of complex multi-object multi-dimensional movement, as in the case of air traffic control, robotic motion and the folding of proteins to create new drugs.

National Technology Award 2007

The two teams receiving the National Technology Awards this year reflect highly innovative technology development in the private and public research laboratories in Singapore.

  • The team from the Institute for Infocomm Research invented the Advanced Audio Zip, a flexible audio coding tool that is capable of compressing any music file (such as a CD track) to less than half of its original size, as well as restore every bit of the original data during playback without any loss or distortion. At the same time, the coder allows fine-grain bitrate scal
