  Giving patients a heads up on genetic disease and testing

Photo of article Advances in genetic testing, which analyse the blood or body tissues of patients, have bolstered doctors' abilities to diagnose and treat several illnesses. But EuroGentest went one step further and not only conducted a major survey examining the quality of existing patient information in the EU, but it has published a series of 11 patient information leaflets on the main topics in genetic disease and genetic testing. Supported by patient information groups, the leaflets are available in English and are currently being translated into Italian, Polish and Romanian. They will eventually be translated into all the main EU languages.

  European computing Grids gearing up for LHC launch

Photo of article The UK’s largest computing grid recently received further funding in the run up to CERN’s launch of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), slated to come online at the end of 2007. The funding is earmarked for the GridPP project building a grid capable of synthesising the enormous amounts of data expected to be generated by LHC. The amount of information generated by LHC will require the close collaboration of experts throughout Europe and the recent grant by the UK’s Particle Physics and Astronomy Research Council (PPARC) to the tune of €44 million will help ensure UK physicists stay connected with colleagues on the other side of the Channel.
