More on Mashups - An Easy, Free Way to Create Custom Web Apps

What if you could combine online data from multiple sources to create a customized, interactive Web application that could keep your supporters in the know without requiring them to visit more than one site?

In today's techno-world, some good ideas get a bad rap from too much jargon. Sometimes you can find the perfect icon to describe the hype. If you are interested in Web 2.0, you might want to get one of these little devices:

Open Access (OA) Publications - the changing face of scientific publications

I recently responded to a post on the LIMS Mail List about the release of a new peer reviewed scientific publication called Pharma IT Journal. In my posting, I suggested that the new journal be released as an Open Access Journal. The following article gives a pretty good overview of exactly what Open Access is and the benefits to the scientific community.

The Ion Channel Inverse Problem: Neuroinformatics Meets Biophysics

Ion channels are the building blocks of the information processing capability of neurons: any realistic computational model of a neuron must include reliable and effective ion channel components.

Three-dimensional structure determination of proteins related to human health in their functional context at The Israel Structural Proteomics Center (ISPC)

The principal goal of the Israel Structural Proteomics Center (ISPC) is to determine the structures of proteins related to human health in their functional context. Emphasis is on the solution of structures of proteins complexed with their natural partner proteins and/or with DNA. . .
