Musée de l'Informatique - expositions temporaires et permanentes sur l'histoire de l'informatique.  Synthetic Biology. "Synthetic biology" is an umbrella term that refers to a new set of powerful techniques for manipulating the fundamental molecular structures of life, including genes, genomes, cells and proteins.

 Synthetic Biology

Techniques being developed under the "synthetic biology" rubric include the modification of existing bacteria to produce useful substances or perform new functions, the creation of novel artificial organisms from "scratch," and — less noted to date — the modification of animal and human genes. Synthetic biologists foresee a host of human applications, including new methods to produce drugs, biofuels and vaccines; to diagnose, prevent and cure disease; and — far more controversially — to screen, select, and modify genes for specified traits in embryos, children, and adults.

Nonetheless, the field remains in its early days, and separating hype from real potential remains difficult. Print Friendly & PDF.

Curriculum science teaching guide

Last updated: December 23, 2014. Explain that Stuff is a fun and friendly guide to the science that powers the world around us. Although it's mainly designed for informal self-learning, it can also be used to support formal teaching and home-schooling across the physical science curriculum for ages ranging from about 10 upward.

It can be used by motivated students working independently, teachers planning classes and devising activities, and home-schooling parents working in partnership with children. This guide is designed to help you get the most from our site by showing how our articles map to a typical science curriculum. Photo by Charles Oki courtesy of US Navy. How to use this guide There are many different science curricula in use around the world, and it's impossible to detail how a large website like this (with over 450 long articles) maps to all of them.

Sony Nextep Computer Concept for 2020 by Hiromi Kiriki

Developed to be worn as a bracelet, this computer concept is constructed out of a flexible OLED touchscreen. Earmarked for the year 2020, features like a holographic projector (for screen), pull-out extra keyboard panels and social networking compatibility, make the concept plausible. Ten years from now is not too far away, so how many of you think we’d be buying such gadgets? Designer: Hiromi Kiriki. Don't Want Your Laptop Tampered With? Just Add Glitter Nail Polish. HAMBURG — If you’re traveling overseas, across borders or anywhere you’re afraid your laptop or other equipment might be tampered with or examined, you’ve got a new secret weapon to improve security.

Don't Want Your Laptop Tampered With? Just Add Glitter Nail Polish

Glitter nail polish. Don’t laugh. It works. Security researchers Eric Michaud and Ryan Lackey, making a presentation at the Chaos Communication Congress on Monday, highlighted the power of nail polish – along with metallic paints and even crappy stickers – to help people know when their machines have been physically tampered with and potentially compromised. “Government agencies have so much money, they can build their own custom procedures,” said Ryan Lackey, founder of the CryptoSeal VPN service. Physical tampering with machines, whether by governments, corporate competitors or data thieves looking for bounty, is a growing problem. Short of keeping a machine with you 24/7, there is little you can do to be absolutely sure these things don’t happen, the researchers said.
