Semiòtica Semiòtica i semiologia és l'estudi dels sistemes de signes, especialment en relació al llenguatge però amb conseqüències en altres àrees de les ciències socials on les qüestions d'interpretació són de gran importància. Les teories que s'apliquen al disseny gràfic i a la comunicació visual procedeixen de l'estudi de la ciència, coneguda com a semiologia a Europa i semiòtica als Estats Units La nova ciència va ser postulada a principis del segle XIX per Ferdinand de Saussure (1875-1913), un professor suís de lingüística. Els principis fonamentals actuals de la semiòtica van ser escoltats pels alumnes de Saussure en un curs de lingüística impartit a la Universitat de Ginebra entre 1906 i 1911. Abans de Saussure els estudis del llenguatge s'ocupaven sobretot de l'ús històric de la llengua. Abans del curs a Ginebra, Saussure també es dedicava a l'estudi de la llengua.

Rosalind Franklin: DNA's unsung hero - 2 clicks Rosalind Franklin had a life full of challenges, not just scientifically but socially. She had to fight prejudice in an environment dominated by men in a time when women were presumed to be housewives and nothing more. Her success was recognized by many of her peers, but in the race for the structure of DNA and the recognition of key innovators in this field, sexism played a major role. Years after her death, Brenda Maddox and Anne Sayre worked on biographies about Franklin and could clarify some aspects of her history that might otherwise have gone overlooked. Maddox’s work gave rise to an interesting documentary by PBS’ NOVA called Secret of Photograph 51. Interested in learning more about early work on DNA? Franklin also did extensive work on crystallography - but what does this mean? When crystallographers want to study a molecule, they take an x-ray of a crystal made from that molecule, pretty much like a doctor's or dentist's x-ray.
