Determining the structure of unknown natural compounds is a slow and expensive part of drug screening and development - but this may now change.



Smallpox misinformation

Many people are unaware of one of the greatest achievements of medical science - the eradication of smallpox from the world over 40 years ago.

Human heart development slower than other mammals

The walls of the human heart are a disorganised jumble of tissue until relatively late in pregnancy, despite having the shape of a fully functioning heart, according to a pioneering study.



GIGABIT transceiver with built-in serdes allows copper or fibre interface

Marvell of Sunnyvale, California, has developed the first fully integrated, quad-port Gigabit Ethernet transceiver to support IEEE-defined 10/100/1000BASE-T copper and 1000BASE-SX/LX fibre-optic Gigabit Ethernet interfaces in a single device.
