Internet Scout Project
This is an article appearing in the January 2002 issue of Scientific American detailing what Advanced Cell Technology (ACT) claims is the first human cloned embryo. This online version describes the research that ACT calls the "dawn of a new age in medicine" and includes links to further information, covering ethical and legal considerations surrounding cloning and the difference between reproductive and therapeutic cloning.

Make a DNA Model
By building their own DNA model in this OLogy activity, kids learn about the unique genetic code that's found in every cell of their bodies. The activity begins with a brief look at how all living things are made of cells, and what that makes them unique is DNA. Then, using toothpicks, colored paper, and other common supplies, students create a 3-D model of DNA and "do the DNA twist" to make it look like a double spiral. Interspersed throughout the activity are kid-friendly descriptions of the d

Antibody-protein interactions: benchmark datasets and prediction tools evaluation
Background The ability to predict antibody binding sites (aka antigenic determinants or B-cell epitopes) for a given protein is a precursor to new vaccine design and diagnostics. Among the various methods of B-cell epitope identification X-ray crystallography is one of the most reliable methods. Using these experimental data computational methods exist for B-cell epitope prediction. As the number of structures of antibody-protein complexes grows, further interest in prediction methods using 3D s

Human Cloning and Human Rights: Promises and Perils
Ignore the noisy debate around cloning, Rudolf Jaenisch quietly insists, and instead look closely at the biology involved. First, note that there are two different kinds of cloning: reproductive cloning, the attempt to create an exact replica of a human being, which Jaenisch believes to be both biologically flawed and morall

3.1.2 Star clusters and stellar evolution

  • Since all the stars in a cluster formed at about the same time, and all have similar compositions, they provide a powerful tool for the study of stellar evolution.

  • The lack of massive stars lying at the top of the main sequence in clusters indicates that they evolve fastest. The ages of clusters are inferred from the position of the main sequence turn-off.

What is the genome made of?
Genomes are composed of DNA, and a knowledge of the structure of DNA is essential to understand how it can function as hereditary material. DNA is remarkable, breathtakingly simple in its structure yet capable of directing all the living processes in a cell, the production of new cells and the development of a fertilized egg to an individual adult. DNA has three key properties: it is relatively stable; its structure suggests an obvious way in which the molecule can be duplicated, or replicated;
