The American Association for Clinical Chemistry (AACC) has announced the launch of “Young’s Effects Online,” offering instant access to the effects of thousands of diseases, drugs, and herbal remedies on medical lab tests. The new web-based resource will be introduced at the Annual Meeting and Clinical Lab Exposition, held in Los Angeles, CA from July 25 through July 29, 2004. Visit the AACC booth #2423 and contact Laura Fillmore for more information (see below).
“Young’s Effects Online” is based on the work of Dr. Donald S. Young, Vice Chair for Laboratory Medicine, Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, University of Pennsylvania Health System, who has published these standard reference books on lab tests for the AACC over many years. These publications are an important resource for doctors, laboratorians, and pharmacists because new drugs and herbs are constantly being introduced, many of which are exceedingly potent, with an array of side effects that can change lab tests. With the launch of this online database, users can now enjoy four significant benefits: updated and more comprehensive data (there are more authors, and more drug interactions online than in print), portability (it is Web-based), searchability, and reduced subscription cost. Potential subscribers can visit http://www.fxol.org to sign up for a free trial subscription (for show attendees only).

A new assessment of NASA's record of global temperatures revealed that the agency's estimate of Earth's long-term temperature rise in recent decades is accurate to within less than a tenth of a degree Fahrenheit, providing confidence that past and future research is correctly capturing rising surface temperatures.
The most complete assessment ever of statistical uncertainty within the GISS Surface Temperature Analysis (GISTEMP) data product shows that the annual values...
Physicists at the University of Basel are able to show for the first time how a single electron looks in an artificial atom. A newly developed method enables them to show the probability of an electron being present in a space. This allows improved control of electron spins, which could serve as the smallest information unit in a future quantum computer. The experiments were published in Physical Review Letters and the related theory in Physical Review B.
The spin of an electron is a promising candidate for use as the smallest information unit (qubit) of a quantum computer. Controlling and switching this spin or...

With a quantum coprocessor in the cloud, physicists from Innsbruck, Austria, open the door to the simulation of previously unsolvable problems in chemistry, materials research or high-energy physics. The research groups led by Rainer Blatt and Peter Zoller report in the journal Nature how they simulated particle physics phenomena on 20 quantum bits and how the quantum simulator self-verified the result for the first time.
Many scientists are currently working on investigating how quantum advantage can be exploited on hardware already available today. Three years ago, physicists...
'Quantum technologies' utilise the unique phenomena of quantum superposition and entanglement to encode and process information, with potentially profound benefits to a wide range of information technologies from communications to sensing and computing.
However a major challenge in developing these technologies is that the quantum phenomena are very fragile, and only a handful of physical systems have been...
