Pierre Curie, French physicist Featured 16 May 2003 Print

Pierre Curie, French physicist

Pierre Curie (1859-1906), Nobel Prize-winning French physicist. Curie studied at the Sorbonne in Paris, where he subsequently became an assistant teacher. With his brother he discovered the piezoelectric effect in crystals. In 1895 he married Polish-French physicist Marie Sklodowska and together they embarked on joint research into the newly discovered phenomenon of radioactivity. Although sometimes dangerous, their work was highly successful: they discovered two new elements (polonium and radium) and won the 1903 Nobel Prize for physics. Pierre Curie died in a road accident

Computer artwork of genetic engineering Featured 16 May 2003 Print

Computer artwork of genetic engineering

Genetic engineering. Computer artwork showing a molecule of DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) being manipulated during genetic engineering. A section of the DNA molecule at centre has been cut away using an enzyme and is being removed at right. A replacement section is being added at left. DNA contains the inherited instructions necessary for the development of a living organism. It consists of two helical strands joined by bases (blue bars) which form the genetic code. Here, a new section of DNA, perhaps a gene coding for a hormone such as insulin, is being spliced into the DNA. Genes such as this are needed to treat people who lack them through a process known as gene therapy
