eLife Sciences is a unique, non-profit collaboration between the funders and practitioners of research to improve the way important results are presented and shared. The open-access eLife journal is the first step in this initiative to make science publishing more effectively benefit science and scientists.
Our rationale is that effective integration of proteomics data into a genomic framework will lead to improved knowledge of complex biological systems and facilitate access to protein level data (Paik YK. et. al., Nat Biotechnology, 30(3), 221-223, 2012).
European scientists are developing flexible alternatives to silicon.
Sandrine Palcy's insight:
A new type of plastic electronics made from organic materials is lighter, cheaper, and more flexible than any of today’s technology. Such circuits could be worn on clothing or placed inside medical sensors.
