Bioinformatics: The quest for new drugs finds significant profits
...allenge for bioinformatics developers is to design platforms
that can manage, retrieve, organize, compare, manipulate, and integrate data in a way that accelerates research, rather than acting as a bottleneck." The discovery of new drugs means substantial profits, making bioinformatics a bright new field. Bio...
Applied Biosystems introduces new system for protein and metabolite analysis

Green Mud cure for $2 billion loss
...economically out to 10 kilometres or beyond, fewer platforms
are needed to exploit the field. The key to drilling these long wells in shale is to maintain the precarious balance between drilling fluid pressure and rock stresses over extended periods of time. Although they go by the unromantic name of muds, dri...
