50th anniversary of discovery of dna

50th anniversary of discovery of DNA

  • LMB had it origins in the illustrious 19th century Cavendish Laboratory. Cavendish scientists excelled in physics. J. J. Thomson discovered the electron there, and Ernest Rutherford smashed the atom.

  • What started about 55 years ago as a pilot program in biophysics at the University of Cambridge eventually became the Laboratory of Molecular Biology (LMB), now home to about 300 researchers and alma mater to hundreds of molecular biology's most influential.

  • Watson (a Nobel laureate) has called LMB "the most productive center for biology in the history of science."

  • Over the past 5 decades, they invented key technologies such as DNA sequencing. And they have helped to elucidate some of the most fundamental questions in biology: how genes carry the instructions for proteins, for instance, and how a single cell develops into an animal.

  • When LMB researchers needed a new instrument, Perutz (a Nobel laureate)made sure technicians and engineers were there to build it, a model he learned at the Cavendish.

  • "It's not whether you have published a lot of papers, it's more whether you have done some fundamental work," says LMB bioinformaticist Sarah Teichmann.

  • Sulston and Horvitz opened up a new field in cell biology, earning the 2002 Nobel.

France urged to open up lite education

France urged to open up élite education

France's élite grandes écoles should operate less in isolation from the rest of higher education and be integrated more into the university system through the creation of joint courses and degrees and the sharing of facilities such as libraries and laboratories.

Graduates of the écoles have served France well in the past within the state's massive technological programmes in such fields as nuclear energy, aerospace and high-speed trains. But economic needs have now shifted towards a higher education system that fosters contacts between scientists, entrepreneurs and small companies.

The report argues that the selection process has become too élitist, benefiting almost exclusively the children of top civil servants or wealthy industrialists, who have enjoyed a privileged education. This social inequality has widened in recent decades, according to the report, with most entrants to the grandes écoles now coming from just a handful of top schools.

Closing in on the perfect code

Closing in on the perfect code

It happened a decade ago at the 1993 IEEE International Conference on Communications in Geneva, Switzerland. Two French electrical engineers, Claude Berrou and Alain Glavieux, made a flabbergasting claim: they had invented a digital coding scheme that could provide virtually error-free communications at data rates and transmitting-power efficiencies well beyond what most experts thought possible. Few veteran communications engineers believed the results. The Frenchmen, both professors in the electronics department at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Télécommunications de Bretagne in Brest, France, were then unknown in the information-theory community. The claims were so preposterous that many experts didn't even bother to read the paper.

Berrou and Glavieux were right, and their error-correction coding scheme, which has since been dubbed turbo codes, has revolutionized error-correction coding. Chances are fairly good that the next cellphone you buy will have them built in.

With possibilities like these, turbo codes have jumped to the forefront of communications research, with hundreds of groups working on them in companies and universities all over the world. The list includes telecommunications giants like France Télécom and NTT DoCoMo; high-tech heavyweights like Sony, NEC, Lucent, Samsung, Ericsson, Nokia, Motorola, and Qualcomm; hardware and chip manufacturers like Broadcom, Conexant, Comtech AHA, and STMicroelectronics; and start-ups like Turboconcept and iCoding.

Historical background and motivation

Historical Background and Motivation

During the ensuing discussions, the idea emerged slowly to undertake our own design. And suddenly I had become concrete. "Crazy" was my first reaction, and "impossible". The sheer amount of work

appeared as overwhelming. After all, we both had to carry our share of teaching duties back home. But the thought was implanted and continued to occupy our minds.

ACM, A. M.

Turing Award (1984)

Sometime thereafter, events back home suggested that I should take over the important course about System Software. As it was the unwritten rule that it should primarily deal with operating system principles, I hesitated. My scruples were easily justified: After all I had never designed such a system nor a part of it. And how can one teach an engineering subject without first-hand experience!

Project Oberon: The Design of an Operating System and Compiler (www.oberon.ethz.ch/books.html )

Prof. Niklaus Wirth

The oberon project history

The Oberon Project History

Oberon is simultaneously the name of a programming language and of a modern operating system. The Oberon project [WG92] was started at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zürich (ETHZ) in 1985 by Niklaus Wirth and Jürg Gutknecht. It was originally targeted towards in-house built hardware (Ceres workstation, based on the National Semiconductors 32000 processor family). Later, the decision was made to port the system to popular computer hardware, where it would run natively or on top of the operating system of the host. Today, Oberon is available for many computer platforms.

In 1991, Jürg Gutknecht and his group continued the development towards the ETH Oberon System. The goal was to exploit the inherent potential and features of Oberon to a much larger degree, upgrade the system by a concept of composable and persistent objects, complement the textual user interface by a graphical companion and provide support for the ubiquitous network. In 1995, the first official Oberon System 3 release was finished. Since then, the system has been constantly improved and extended. In 1997, the Release 2.2 including a large palette of applications was published together with a comprehensive hypertext-based documentation. In March 2000, a new release was ready and the system was renamed "ETH Oberon System".

Dutch researchers freedoms and responsibilities

Dutch researchers' freedoms and responsibilities

Following damaging cuts in public spending last year, a new research policy in the Netherlands promises more freedom to researchers to set priorities. But national interests should not be forgotten.

Universities will submit strategic plans to the NWO every four years, rather than two-yearly reports of progress to the ministry. The NWO, in turn, will craft a national research plan based on universities' submissions. In order to foster awareness of potential economic and social relevance, foresight studies developed by the independent Advisory Council for Science and Technology Policy will be available for universities to take into account as they see fit.

t would be wrong to conclude that the Netherlands has drawn back from the idea that science should help develop the country economically and socially. Rather, the policy shift is an attempt to set a new balance of ministerial responsibility on the one hand and, on the other, to delegate authority to universities and the NWO, trusting them not only to pursue interesting questions but also to keep the national interest in mind.

The astronomical institute of the Univ. of Amsterdam has an outstanding reputation in the field of high energy astrophysics, but as well has built up a substantial low energy research group, which is currently one of the leading groups using ISO data. Observations are based both on terrestrial telescopes of the ESO (European Southern Observatory) and La Palma and various satellite observations with satellites like the Infrared Space Observatory (ISO), the X-ray satellites Rossi X-ray Timing Explorer (XTE), Beppo SAX, Chandra and XMM and the Hubble Space Telescope.

The Institute has the following research groups and projects

  • The X-ray/High-energy astrophysics group 

  • The stellar and binary evolution group

  • The gamma-ray burst group

  • The infrared group

  • The massive stars and stellar wind group

  • The radio pulsar group

  • The faint sky variability survey group


Head of the department of astrophysics

Head of the Department of Astrophysics

Paul Groot received his degree from the University of Amsterdam, under the supervision of the renowned astronomer Jan van Paradijs. He wrote a Master's thesis on a novel way to measure stellar rotation. In 1995 he started his PhD project on the astrophysics of Cataclysmic Variables: close binaries in which a white dwarf accretes material from a companion via a thin, hot, accretion disc. In February 1997 it was Paul Groot who managed to find the optical counterpart of a Gamma-ray burst, a breakthrough that contributed significantly to (a start of) a solution of the mysteries of Gamma-ray bursts.

After obtaining his PhD (cum laude) in 1999, he moved to the Center for Astrophysics (CfA) of Harvard University on a CfA fellowship. In 2002 he returned to the Netherlands as an assistant professor at the Radboud University Nijmegen, where he and Jan Kuijpers successfully started a new astrophysics group.

Cabinet approves 50 million Euro for three technology universities

On 24 February 2006 the Dutch cabinet approved a proposal from the three universities of technology in the Netherlands to federate. And 50 million Euro is being made available in five annual installments to combine their research at five centres of excellence. These will help pave the way for the establishment of the Federation of Dutch Universities of Technology (3TU Federation) itself, which is scheduled for 1 April 2007.

Circuits and systems go dutch

Circuits and Systems – Go Dutch

A brief introductionThe research area of the Circuits and Systems group covers the theory and applications of circuits and systems, signal processing, and VLSI circuit and system design methodology.

Our system applications are taken from several areas that require new mathematical insights, eg. wireless communications, distributed networks, radio astronomy and biomedical applications, and we limit ourselves to the central signal processing aspects of these. The objective is to develop efficient signal processing algorithms and to compile these onto embedded systems and the underlying physical circuits. The new insights are incorporated in design tools and actual designs. Here we benefit from the interaction with many other research groups in the EEMCS faculty (Micro-electronics, Communications, Electromagnetics, Multimedia and Computer Science): joint projects with these groups provide relevant applications and a bigger scheme in which our research fits. Signal processing and VLSI design ("algorithms" and "architectures") is really the interface between "hard" technology and "soft" user applications.
