Xiang-Jun's Corner: Further details of the DNA story revealed by ...
I read Watson's "The Double Helix" book a while ago, and overall I am quite familiar with the DNA story. Still, I found this account fascinating: it provides a "CAST LIST" in "The search for the structure of DNA" with photos (p521); and it succinctly summarizes the relationships among the key players. In science, no other story shows more dramatically the collaborative and competitive nature among scientists working on similar projects. Franklin’s X-ray diffraction photograph 51 of B-form DNA (see figure above, from Wikipedia), with its unambiguous evidence that DNA was helical, proved [more...]

2011 MINI Cooper Countryman - Official photos, features, specs ...
Like all models in the MINI range, the MINI Countryman comes with upright rear light clusters that form a distinctive contrast to the predominantly horizontal lines at the rear. Highlighted by chrome surrounds, the rear light clusters stand out three-dimensionally from the body of the car. Positioned far to the outside, the rear lights emphasize the width of the MINI Countryman and hint at the vehicle’s generous interior space. All light functions are integrated in the rear lights, which are embedded like islands in the rear side panels. The inner structure of the light is aligned with [more...]

Compared with the MINI Cooper, the MINI Cooper S has a more sporting suspension set-up, and as an option both models are available with a sport suspension for an even higher standard of driving pleasure.

ISPUB - What's There In Our Genes? A Case For A More Inclusive And ...
We need better reviews, use of both qualitative and quantitative data as well as much more rigorous testing of newer and older models. Only then may we make full use of this large amount of data that has already been collected over the years. What we have described here, for now, presents part of the picture seen from the Indian subcontinent as an example. However, this situation is probably true of other parts of the world as well, perhaps even those areas where it has been assumed that the data is likely to be homogenous. Thus, even biological anthropologists need to add new sensitivities [more...]

\'Lost\' letters reveal twists in discovery of double helix
A twist of discoveryMany have argued that Franklin deserved Nobel recognition, because her experimental work revealed the double-helix structure that helped Crick and Watson build their DNA model. Even Watson suggested much later that Franklin and Wilkins should have shared a Nobel Prize in chemistry for their contributions. Franklin, who had all the photographic evidence of DNA’s double-helix structure in front of her, had dismissed the idea of a helix. That’s because she focused her attention on the clearer data from the A form of DNA, which looks less obviously like a helix than the B [more...]

National DNA database and psychiatric patients | Frontier Psychiatrist
The advent of DNA analysis as a powerful tool for crime detection has led to the creation of England and Wales’s National DNA Database (NDNAD). This is one of the world’s largest databases of DNA information, storing profiles of nearly five million individuals (1). We write to raise a concern about the potential impact of this database on people with mental disorders. The NDNAD has long been the subject of scrutiny and criticism with regards to how DNA profiles are collected and retained and from whom. This is because the current regulations on DNA profile collection mean that the NDNAD [more...]
