  More accurate rain forecasts on their way

Photo of article The lack of comprehensive high-quality data makes it difficult for weather models to provide accurate predictions for rainfall. This can result in great damage or even loss of life if severe weather warnings are delivered late or not at all. This is particularly true for upland areas. So in order to get a handle on the problem, the Delft University of Technology has decided to participate in a major international experiment in the Black Forest, Germany, which will help scientists to better understand the causes of rain. Running from 1 June to 1 September 2007, the experiment is using an airship and other aircraft, as well as ground-based observations.

  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.
