Internet offers unprecedented R&D efficiencies web exclusive Kevin McLaughlin Research departments in various fields, especially those in the pharmaceutical manufacturing and chemical industries, are involved in the synthesis of compounds and their subsequent confirmation and purification. Often, the major concern for researchers handling great numbers of samples is how to achieve data as quickly and easily as possible
This tool is the first search engine specialized in linking biomedical articles to nucleic acid sequences. It is an online repository created to link documents archived at PubMed Central with the nucleic acid sequences that they contain
Web services provide firewall-friendly machine-to-machine communication Michael Neal Given the far-flung locations of scientific instrumentation and data repositories, remote access to these resources is often a problem. Over the last decade, the proliferation of the Internet and networking infrastructure has simplified the task of connecting distributed hardware over existing physical networks

Conclusion Randy C. Hice Okay, I’m scratching the surface of the iPhone, but am still giddy about its utility in day-to-day life. I see little reason to plug into a hotel’s Wi-Fi network if they charge for it
Surf’s Up Randy C. Hice The Safari browser works very well, but the ability to use two fingers to “stretch” the screen is quite handy
Movies, TV and More Randy C. Hice Okay, I never thought there would be a chance in hell of me loading a movie on the iPhone, until my wife saw my hopping around on my surgically-repaired tendon
Worth the Wait? Randy Hice Well, let me say that the iPhone is an astounding piece of design engineering. Although from a hardware engineering standpoint, my iPhone lasted two weeks before developing OS problems
