Innovation in Bio-Safety Testing from Pre-Clinical to Product Launch
(Part Four)

“To me, systems biology is the religion you switch to when target-based drug discovery doesn’t work,” Noubar Afeyan states boldly. He claims that after losing billions of dollars, the pharmaceutical industry and academia are beginning to see the value in testing drugs by measuring outcomes in biological networks. He

Article :: Working with Type in the Adobe Illustrator CS5 Perspective Grid
In print or online, readers are unimpressed by text that's just plonked down onto a graphical background. On the other hand, type with tasteful effects can make a publication or web page much more inviting. David Karlins, author of Adobe Creative Suite 5 Web Premium How-Tos: Essential Techniques, shows how to manipulate text in Adobe Illustrator CS5 to lend great visual perspective.

Introduction
This is the fifth and final unit in the MSXR209 series on mathematical modelling. In this unit we revisit the model developed in the first unit of this series on pollution in the Great Lakes of North America. Here we evaluate and revise the original model by comparing its predictions against data from the lakes before finally reflecting on the techniques used. This unit assumes you have studied Modelling pollution in the Great Lakes (MSXR209_1), Analysing skid marks (MSXR209_2), Developing model

Classification of Precedents - A Hybrid Approach to Indexing and Retrieving Design Cases in SEED (a
An efficient indexing of past solutions is crucial to case-based design (CBD) systems performing complex retrieval on large case-bases. This paper suggests a hybrid approach to the indexing and retrieval of design precedents. The suggested approach accounts for the issues of classification manifested in architectural discussions on type and CBD literature. The indexing scheme integrates description-logic based representation for classification and an object-based representation for precedents. T

7 Solutions to the exercises
Sometimes the best way to understand a set of data is to sketch a simple graph. This exercise can reveal hidden trends and meanings not clear from just looking at the numbers. In this unit you will review the various approaches to sketching graphs and learn some more advanced techniques.
