  • The Chemical Weapons Convention requires, among other things, that the signatories to the convention--which includes the United States--destroy by April 29, 2007, or as soon possible thereafter, any chemical warfare materiel that has been recovered from sites where it has been buried once discovered. For several years the United States and several other countries have been developing and using technologies to dispose of this non-stockpile materiel. To determine whether international efforts have resulted in technologies that would benefit the U.S. program, the U.S.

  • One of the most fundamental obligations of any society is to prepare its adolescents and young adults to lead productive and prosperous lives as adults. This means preparing all young people with a solid enough foundation of literacy, numeracy, and thinking skills for responsible citizenship, career development, and lifelong learning. For over a century, the United States led the world in equipping its young people with the education they would need to succeed.

  • Improvements in ethanol’s energy consumption have continued since large- scale commercial production began in the 1970s. The process has become more efficient at using the starch in the corn kernel, approaching the theo- retical limit of about 2.85 gallons of ethanol per bushel. Energy for conver- sion has fallen from as high as 70,000 Btu’s per gallon in the late 1970s (Wang, August 1999) to 40,000 Btu’s or less for modern dry mills and to 40,000-50,000 Btu’s for wet mills. Modern energy-saving technology and process optimization account for the improvement....

  • The global environment is changing rapidly, partly in response to economic globalization. These global changes are clearly evident at the local level, even in the quality of air that people breath. In some high income countries air quality has been improving, due to a combination of de-industrialization, improved technologies and environmental regulation. However, advances in the science of epidemiology suggest that even air that would until recently have been considered ‘clean’ may contain pollutants that are hazardous to people’s health.

  • Starch- and plant-protein-based glues, for example, do not have the strength of petrochemical-derived superglues. On the other hand, plant-derived chemicals have unique advantages for other uses. Recombinant proteins, for example, can be designed and produced in plants to provide tissue glues analogous to the fibrinogen that naturally forms around a flesh wound. Emerging technologies offer dramatic new capabilities to alter plant metabolic pathways, opening up unprecedented opportunities to produce high-value chemicals from renewable resources....

  • The storage of tissue-engineered products is an attractive target for technological development. Since tissue-engineered products usually consist of living cells, technical issues include the limited shelf life of the cells and the use of specialized conditions for transportation. Without storage, treatment with cells requires timely harvesting from the donor, which significantly affects the availability of tissue-engineered products.

  • The explosion of new technologies in the post-genomic era is allowing the study of biological systems on a genome-wide scale, at the main functional genomic levels: (epi)-genome, transcriptome, proteome, endo- and exometabolome, and their interactions. At the same time that these techniques are being applied and refined, the complexity of biological systems is being rediscovered (1) with thousands of components (e.g., genes, transcripts, proteins, metabolites) participating in finely tuned metabolic and regulatory networks.

  • While communications and network security are ongoing concerns, current technology is also making impressive strides in bioinformatics, which concentrates on untangling the complex relationships and connections that enable viruses and other diseases to attack the human body. California-based Ingenuity’s Variant Analysis and IPA (Ingenuity Pathways Analysis) Web-based software identifies and analyses individually modelled relationships between proteins, genes, complexes, cells, tissues, metabolites, drugs, and diseases.

  • Isn’t it strange that the animal we used to be developed into the creature that we now are? How – and why – did human intelligence and culture evolve? How did we evolve minds, philosophies and technologies? And now that we have them, where are they taking us? The orthodox answer to these questions looks inside our brains to see what they are made of and how the various components operate.
