Article
Full-text available
Biomimetics must be taught to the next generation of designers in the interest of delivering solutions for current problems. Teaching biomimetics involves teachers and students from and in various disciplines at different stages of the educational system. There is no common understanding of how and what to teach in the different phases of the educa...
Article
Biological solutions are often used for developing technically innovative products in a biomimetic process. However, biological solutions do not always make it into a successful technical product, e.g. due to a lack of knowledge on the mechanisms of action. A new approach is presented for transferring biological solutions based on complex mechanism...

Full-text available
Biomimetics is a well-known approach for technical innovation. However, most of its influence remains in the academic field. One option for increasing its application in the practice of technical design is to enhance the use of the biomimetic process with a step-by-step standard, building a bridge to common engineering procedures. This article pres...
Chapter
The two general approaches of biomimetics are presented and the process for solving technical problems is explained step by step. Difficulties that arise and how they can be solved are pointed out.
Chapter
Biomimetics can be used specifically to achieve sustainability goals and address not only technical innovation but also social challenges.
Chapter
An overview of the basic principles of biological systems helps the reader to better understand the approach and challenges of biomimetics. Various conceptual approaches of biomimetics are presented, especially in the context of problem solving and innovation.
Chapter
Biomimetics has a long history in the development of technical products inspired by nature. In order to use knowledge from nature in practice, users need to understand the topic holistically, from its biology background to its application process. Therefore it is important to know the characteristics of biomimetics that can be learned and taught. T...
Article
Biomimetics is the interdisciplinary co-operation of various scientific disciplines and fields of innovation, and it aims to solve practical problems using biological models. Biomimetic research and its fields of application are manifold, and the community is made up of a wide range of disciplines, from biologists and engineers to designers. Guidel...
Article
Full-text available
Biomimetics is a known innovation paradigm of the twenty‐first century with significant impact on science, society, economy, and challenges of sustainability. As such it can be understood as a mindset for creative thinking and as a methodology or technique for effective knowledge transfer between disciplines, mainly biology and technology. As biomi...
Chapter
Die zwei grundlegenden Ansätze der Bionik werden vorgestellt und die Vorgehensweise zur Lösung technischer Fragestellungen Schritt für Schritt erklärt. Auftretende Schwierigkeiten und wie sie gelöst werden können werden aufgezeigt.
Chapter
Eine Übersicht über die Grundprinzipien biologischer Systeme hilft dem Leser, die Vorgehensweise und die Herausforderungen der Bionik besser zu verstehen. Verschiedene konzeptionelle Herangehensweisen der Bionik werden vorgestellt, insbesondere im Kontext der Problemlösung und Innovation.
Chapter
Die Bionik kann speziell für das Erreichen von Nachhaltigkeitszielen genutzt werden und nicht nur technische Innovation, sondern auch gesellschaftliche Herausforderungen adressieren.
Article
Full-text available
Biologically inspired design (BID) is an emerging field of research with increasing achievements in engineering for design and problem solving. Its economic, societal, and ecological impact is considered to be significant. However, the number of existing products and success stories is still limited when compared to the knowledge that is available...
Book
Die Bionik überträgt Wissen über biologische Vorbilder in technische Anwendungen und kann damit für die Entwicklung technischer Produkte und Innovationen genutzt werden. Es handelt sich dabei um einen der spannendsten Ansätze für zukünftige technische und gesellschaftliche Innovation, da das meiste Wissen aus der Biologie bisher noch ungenutzt ist....
Article
Biomimetics applies principles and strategies abstracted from biological systems to engineering and technological design. With a huge potential for innovation, biomimetics could evolve into a key process in businesses. Yet challenges remain within the process of biomimetics, especially from the perspective of potential users. We work to clarify the...
Article
Full-text available
Biomimetics, as the transfer of strategies from biology to technology, is an emerging research area and has led to significant concepts over the past decades. The development of such concepts is described by the process of biomimetics, encompassing several steps. In Practice, beneficiaries of the process face challenges. Therefore, to overcome chal...
Article
Full-text available
BRCA1 is a well-known tumor suppressor protein in mammals, involved in multiple cellular processes such as DNA repair, chromosome segregation and chromatin remodeling. Interestingly, homologs of BRCA1 and several of its complex partners are also found in plants. As the respective mutants are viable, in contrast to mammalian mutants, detailed analys...

Full-text available
hBRCA1 and hBARD1 are tumor suppressor proteins that are involved as heterodimer via ubiquitinylation in many cellular processes, such as DNA repair. Loss of BRCA1 or BARD1 results in early embryonic lethality and chromosomal instability. The Arabidopsis genome carries a BRCA1 homologue, and we were able to identify a BARD1 homologue. AtBRCA1 and t...
