The Biomolecular Interaction Network Database (BIND) 3.8 provides scientists with structured and curated biological assembly data ranging from molecular interactions and small-molecule chemical reactions to interfaces from three-dimensional structures, pathways and genetics interaction networks.
BioWorks 3.2 enables scientists conducting protein or proteomics research to identify proteins. The program supports the range of Finnigan ion trap mass spectrometers, and finds applications in the pharmaceutical industry, academia
The Laura 3.3 chromatography data system expands to control an entire HPLC system rather than just the radio detector. Each instrument component is controlled using the software’s Method Wizard
This intensive three-day event will assemble leaders from around the world in technical computing and other related fields for presentations on the latest advances in Mathematica and other Wolfram technologies.
Notes from the road… Randy C. Hice I'm on a train somewhere in Switzerland, nearing the Italian border. The Alps are screaming past with intricate matrices of dormant vineyards covering the foothills. I'm daydreaming of how many people on this train are listening to something from the group War (City Country City) on an iPod. None likely. Statistically, probably no one else in Switzerland or Italy is listening to Lee Oskar
Acquiring signals for neuroprosthetics Bill Weaver, Ph.D. Now that summer is in full swing, the onslaught of blockbuster sci-fi movies and books has arrived. Much to the chagrin of pedigreed critics, alien technology coupled with special effects is a common formula for popular acclaim. Daring explorers discover a hidden trove of alien artifacts and, recognizing the portent to improved quality-of-life
Weather affects everyone, and the current and upcoming forecasts are always guaranteed conversation-starters. So, it's not surprising that a variety of weather information sources have been available on the Internet almost since its inception. With the advent of the World Wide Web, the Weather Channel and AccuWeather have emerged as two of the more prominent sites
A New Software Framework for Every
Building an Informatics Infrastructure from the Ground
SigmaPlot is graphics software that allows scientists and engineers to accurately present findings using publication-quality graphics. When used with its statistical counterpart, SigmaStat, a number of statistical tools are seamlessly integrated into the graphic functions so a complete report may be generated.

New world of high performance computing enables more people to solve much more complex problems Johannes Gehrke and Dave Lifka Imagine, for a moment, that you are a computational biologist and want to ask a question like, "Show me all the genes that are similar to nitric oxide synthetase." It turns out this can be a pretty tricky question. If you are interested in proteins, you would have to search the NR database at NCBI instead. Now imagine typing that question into Google.com
A historical perspective on the development of commercial platforms for high performance scientific computing Marco Annaratone Technical teams within a variety of industries were among the first to discover the advantages of high performance computing with Linux clusters. Many engineering simulations are too compute-intensive for PCs and workstations, and require large-scale mainframes or supercomputers for them to be carried out in a reasonable amount of time
Hubble's 15 years of celestial discovery Jennifer Miller, Managing Editor Curiosity is simple human nature. It's a deep-seated compulsion, an instinct if you will, to step out of the ordinary and explore, study and discover our surroundings. Can you imagine a world without the not-so-simple theories and findings of Galileo, Columbus, Einstein or Newton? Neither can I
Obtaining realistic measurements of high performance computing systems Nathan Wichmann Here's a hypothetical: Imagine you have to buy a new car, sight unseen. Would you base your decision solely on horsepower? Of course not. You'd want to compare several other factors, such as performance, ride handling, safety rating and fuel system. Even more critical would be choosing the right car
