Smart contact lenses at Auburn could make eye drops a thing of the past
An Auburn University team of chemical and biomedical engineers led by Mark Byrne, the Daniel F. and Josephine Breeden associate professor in the Samuel Ginn College of Engineering, has developed a new method to deliver eye medication by wearing contact lenses.

De l'Oeuf à la grenouille

Comment, à partir d'un oeuf, s'édifie un nouvel individu?

C'est ce que nous montrent les grenouilles Xenopus laevis qui se reproduisent dans les étangs africains. La ponte et la fécondation, le clivage des oeufs qui conduit au stade blastula, les mouvements cellulaires lors de la gastrulation, le corps du futur têtard qui se modèle pendant la neurulation suivie de l'organogenèse, enfin, la période larvaire sanctionnée par la métamorphose, transforment l'oeuf en une gre

Mémoires de l'esclavage dans la société guyanaise
Au début, des commémorations sporadiques de l'abolition de l'esclavage ont eu lieu.

Corroboré en 2001 par la reconnaissance de la traite négrière et l'esclavagisme comme crime contre l'humanité par la loi troubiran, le 10 juin s'institutionnalise autour de
