drives the biochemistry of life by cutting
and pasting itself into different shapes in
order to produce various substances. Researchers
are using DNA's morphing routine to construct
molecular machines. The latest wonder is a
four-step rotary motor.
teams computers to design drugs
Researchers are pooling computing resources into
computational grids in order to crunch large amounts
of scientific data. A set of tools harnesses the
technique to create new pharmaceuticals.
clouds ease quantum computing
Most quantum computing schemes call for isolating
individual atoms, which is no small feat. Making
a whole cloud of atoms act like one could make things
pages cluster by content type
The closer you are to a Web page, the more likely
you are to find related pages. The simple fact could
lead to smarter search engines.
effect alters device motion
Machines are getting so small that soon they will
be intruding on the world of quantum physics. One
result could be skewed timers and sensors.
