Technician monitoring supercomputers at Celera

DNA sequencing supercomputers. Technician with supercomputers used in human genome research at Celera Genomics, Maryland, USA, a rival to the Human Genome Project. Celera aims to sequence all human genes by 2001. Genes are lengths of DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) which perform specific tasks within an organism. Human DNA contains over 100, 000 genes, with over 3 billion base pairs. Celera sequences tiny fragments of DNA and uses supercomputers to put the pieces together. This is a cruder but faster method than that used by the publicly-funded Human Genome Project. The complete human genome map will allow improved drug design and a greater understanding of genetic diseases


Bone formation Featured 26 Mar 2003 Print

Bone formation

Bone formation. Light micrograph showing bonegrowth occurring along an epiphyseal growth plate.This plate allows long bones to grow whilst alsoremaining strong. At the plate, a glycoproteinmatrix (dark blue band, bottom right corner toupper centre) separates columns of dividingchondrocytes (cartilage cells, light blue). Duringbone formation the matrix hardens and its cavitiesare invaded by osteogenic cells, whichdifferentiate into osteoblasts. These group on thecartilage matrix (resulting in the white and pinktissue, lower left) and produce new bone (solidpink). Trichrome stained. Magnification: x20 at35mm size
