New Hubble and Chandra observations of the cluster known as MACSJ0025.4-1222 indicate that a titanic collision has separated dark from ordinary matter
In an advance that may impact the field of artificial intelligence, a new model developed at MIT can help computers recognize patterns the same way that humans do.
Instead of using a flat microchip as the light sensor for their new camera, a team of engineers has developed a sensor that is a flexible mesh of wire-connected pixels
Examplar LIMS 2.0 features a Workflow Manager, which enables creation of complex workflows to track any laboratory procedure and enforce data collection at key points in any protocol
SigmaPlot 11 scientific graphing and data analysis software offers a full range of statistical functions in addition to graphing templates and utilities to facilitate data analysis for non-statisticians.
The latest version of the chemical drawing package ACD/ChemSketch Freeware, version 11.0, provides access to chemical drawing tools with features that include interface changes
In the world of high performance computing, building a system that performed at the petaflop/s level — carrying out 1,000 trillion floating point operations per second – has been such a barrier for more than 10 years. With the June 9, 2008, announcement that the IBM Roadrunner supercomputer at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Los Alamos National Laboratory achieved a sustained 1.026 petaflop/s performance while running the Linpack benchmark
A short tutorial on serial interface communications Thomas Lutz There are thousands of devices available with an RS232 serial interface including laboratory instrumentation, quality and process control devices, measuring instruments, meters, gauges, scales, industrial controllers, sensors, PLCs, etc

This is probably the most challenging review that I’ve done to date. It involves not only the complexity of genetics, but layers on the difficultyof mathematics and the frustrations of programming and algorithms. Add to this the fact that the testing work was done through two computers and involved the Internet.
Researchers have discovered that brown dwarfs may well be stellar ‘miscarriages’ that should be treated as a separate class of celestial body
A children’s playground, made entirely from trees? A shelter made from living tree roots that could provide natural earthquake protection?
First there was the snapshot, and then came video. Now there is Photosynth, a new service that allows users to transform regular digital photos into 3-D, 360-degree “synths”
A free collaborative Web site is providing a new resource for biologists and biochemists by linking written information and 3-D structural information
Scientists have for the first time engineered 3-D materials that can reverse the natural direction of visible and near-infrared light
