    • Think Pink with ChemDraw

    • by Nessa CarsonDrawing with FlairAfter much tweaking, I have a set of ChemDraw® settings, not unlike the sturdily-bonded Totally Synthetic stylesheet that went around the chemistry community a few years ago – but with a fetching pink background. In various workplaces, I’ve become famous for that bold look. Robinson’s total synthesis of tropinone, in my style1My settings include: • Thick bonds that give a crisp look to the molecules on screen, and are clear at the back of a presentation room• Explicit labels on terminal carbons, a requirement kept from my grad ...
    • Tackling Data Challenges in Translational Medicine

    • When scientists gather, it doesn’t seem to take long for the conversation to steer to difficulties in corralling and analyzing data. In fact, a recent PerkinElmer survey shows that more than half of life science researchers said a lack of data transparency and collaborative methods is the key obstacle to precision medicine. New data-generating laboratory technologies are driving an urgent need to better manage and share an unwieldy influx of data.Researchers across life science disciplines, including translational, are crying out for more practical ways to improve access ...
