Academic Papers Discussing Origami

Postby Baltorigamist » April 10th, 2019, 4:11 pm

For my college biology class, I need to do a presentation using information from a recent academic paper (i.e., 2009-present). I've chosen as a topic the linkage between origami and science, but I have no idea where to look for published research relating to this.

Thanks in advance for any guidance.

You can do a search for «origami» on google scholar. Most but not all articles in the search results are pay-for-access. Universities can access those articles for free. If your school doesn't, maybe you can ask someone you know attending a university for help :)

You should try a paper on Biology. There are tons on Pubmed. A presentation on some aspect of Biology will get you farther than a treatise on your favorite hobby. If you must persist, you might think about the development of stents, which expend in the bloodstream using an Origami inspired design.

That said, the things going on in Biology are of mammoth interest, if you'll forgive the pun. Studies on the elephant genome have shed light on why these pachyderms don't get cancer. They should, they're far more cellular than we are. But they don't, and we have some clues as to why.

Lonesome George was the last of his kind, a Pinta Island tortoise. Though he's gone, the secrets of his longevity are being revealed in an analysis of his genome. And what made him a centenarian could do likewise for us.

Scientists have made DA with 4 extra nucleotides.

Not only are there Neanderthal genes in Europeans, but Asiatics have Denison genes. Except the Denisovans comprised two disparate and very different groups...

Scientists for the first time have inactivated a gene in a lizard...

A Chinese scientist managed to edit the genes of two babies...

Immunotherapy has revolutionized cancer treatment...

I could go on, easily. The purpose of University is to expand your horizons, not have you retread the stuff you know already. Try looking into something you don't know about. Maybe you'll learn something.

By the way, if any of my Introductory Biology students submitted their paper on Origami I'd flunk them. There are just too many massively cool things going on in Biology.

Sunburst -> Thanks for the recommendation. I’ll look into it.

Steingar -> One stipulation for the project is that no two people/groups are allowed to present on the same topic. Origami is unique enough that not many people would think to do it, and the presentations aren’t strictly limited to biological topics as far as I’m aware. Even so, I’ll try to focus on biology-related applications (like the stents you mentioned).

You right now have access to a Biology professor,and I bet cash money none of your fellow students have even considered any of the topics I mentioned. And that's just off the top of my head. Moreover, your professor should have a list of those topics already taken by your fellow students, otherwise there is no way for you to avoid repetition.

Of course, if you really want to do something whacked out you can look up the study on the genes that make kids stay in school. No kidding. Should be popular.

Or you can continue to chase Origami. If you wanted to write on Origami and math the stuff these other guys talk about would be appropriate. But Biology is a slightly different matter. Thing is, the stuff going on in Biology is so massively cool. By the way, the technology that went into stents is more than 10 years old.

Moreover, were my stipulation that no two students could write on the same topic, then I'd put out a database of which students had chosen which topics. It isn't a terribly difficult thing to do.

Don't know if you wish to focus on biology, but in engineering, there are several papers on...
Maybe, I can advert on these ones to start with (pdf available):
https://hal.archives-ouvertes.fr/hal-00687311
https://hal.archives-ouvertes.fr/hal-01591463 (in french for this one, sorry)
Hope this helps.
