18 Extra Hot Linux Commercial Games (Part 3 of 3) Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Sunday, July 17 2011 @ 06:51 PM EDT
Contributed by: sde

18 Extra Hot Linux Commercial Games (Part 2 of 3) Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version

Saturday, July 02 2011 @ 01:34 PM EDT
Contributed by: sde

Bioinformatics has been defined in many different ways, but it is common ground to regard this discipline as the application of mathematics, computing and statistics to the analysis of biological information. The objective of bioinformatics is to enable the finding of new biological insights, and to create a broader, more critical view from which unifying principles in biology can be perceived.

Contributed by: sde

Astronomy is particularly well suited to the layperson. It is a wonderful hobby which has almost no age limits, it is open to individuals of all financial means, and there is always the potential for an amateur to discover something that has eluded professional astronomers, or to help monitor stars and track asteroids. Even with the unaided eye, there is much to study in the night sky including constellations, shooting stars, planets, and of course the moon, the Earth's only natural satellite.
