Portable USB powered DNA sequencer

TechReview has a long feature about the MinION, a small DNA sequencer built by Oxford Nanopore, that draws power from your USB port. Worth a read:

Scientists with early access to prototypes of the first commercial “nanopore” sequencer say it’s glitchy and error-prone but may still be the way scientists study DNA in the future. After testing it, Mick Watson, a bioinformatics researcher at the Roslin Institute, in Scotland, says nanopore sequencing is a “disruptive technology that could, potentially, dominate the sequencing market for years to come.”

On Creating new Lore for Morrowind (and TES in general)

tamriel-rebuilt:

Somebody recently asked us an interesting question regarding where/how we source our new lore. This combined with some recent controversy regarding our statement of vision, we thought now would be a good time to share our response and insights on this subject publicly.

…[Lore] just something…

"Yellow chlorine pools crusted with sodium chlorate puncture the surface on their meander to Black Marsh. Ivory grass which greys the landscape like a dry tundra. Tiger-striped guars roam here, and have become iconic to the western Eyes. Saltrice is sporadically farmed, but salt from the earth must be raked from the ground to provide irrigation for this staple food, lest the cultivated plants die from acidic flooding. This can be seen by the pyramids of salt that dot the thin, near-pointless roads, too poisonous to be consumed or sold. Argonians are the perfect slave to accomplish this type of plantation, as the Black Marsh trade is adjacent to the South, and a free-running lizard won’t make it far in the chlorine clouds brushed up by winds. An Argonian putrefying in a shallow pool is not uncommon a sight, and keeps the slaves in line."
