Our work at MRM Research is inter-disciplinary, and we blend theory with practice.We work not only on great ideas, but also implement, deploy, experiment, contribute to and learn from the world around us.We collaborate freely with academia, including some of the world's premier institutes such as the Massachusett's Institute of Technology. We at MRM Research come together to push the boundaries of what we know and what is possible. As an organization, we maintain a portfolio of projects driven by fundamental research, new product innovation, product contribution and infrastructure goals, while providing our members the freedom to emphasize specific types of work. We strive to create an environment conducive to many different types of research across many different time scales and fields, including Artificial Intelligence, Electronics and Control Systems and much more! We believe the most interesting research questions are derived from real world problems. Working on cutting edge research with a practical focus, we push boundaries every day.At the same time, we publish papers and present them at some of the world's top conferences and research journals.

Microscopic Observation of Life in an Unknown Biome Using Negative Staining

A suitable staining agent develops contrast between the specimen and its background. To peek into this microscopic regime, simple staining protocol termed Negative staining because this staining practice dominates over all other complex staining techniques like differential staining, radioactive dyes and other methodologies including Nucleic Acid isolation, sequencing etc. because of its low-cost, qualitative analyses, simplicity and reliability in providing out results within a short time frame.

The Six Fundamental Elements to Promote the Generation of Life

Oparin-Haldane hypothesis, the chemical origin of life, suggests that organic molecules were formed from simple, elemental inorganic molecules. Microorganisms have the ability to extract energy from organic molecules and from sunlight, which is utilized to make a vast array of more complex biomolecules by consuming naturally occurring elements and compounds. This case study focuses on techniques used in estimating the precursors that makes up the biomolecules, thereby confirming the presence/possibility of life within the biome.

Process and Elements in Formation of Biomolecules

Most life forms present on Earth today, as we know it, are fundamentally made of six elements which are Carbon, Hydrogen, Nitrogen, Oxygen, Phosphorous and Sulphur (CHNOPS). These elements proved crucial not only for the formation of biomolecules, but also for the evolution of life. This study establishes the importance of the six basic elements which constitute the foundation of life and to understand how they function together to create complex biomolecules as explained in the Miller-Urey Experiment.
