Who will get there first?

The latest computer simulations show that nuclear fusion reactions which produce more power than is put in are just around the corner - but recent experiments have called into question the accuracy of these computer models.




Researchers are using the latest next-gen sequencing and a supercomputer to analyze unusual Geranium genomes, which are natural mutants, evolving many times faster than their plant peers. This could impact research on genetically-modified foods.


At the end of last month's EGI Technical Forum 2012, we caught up with EGI director Steven Newhouse to get his take on the week's highlights, as well as the challenges for the year ahead.
