Like werewolves and vampires, bacteria have a weakness: silver. The precious metal has been
used to fight infection for thousands of years — Hippocrates first described its antimicrobial
properties in 400 bc — but how it works has been a mystery. Now, a team led by James Collins,
a biomedical engineer at Boston University in Massachusetts, has described how silver can
disrupt bacteria, and shown that the ancient treatment...
Not too long ago, scienti fic publications were written in a quite rigid and conservative format. The presentation of results was usually made using a passive voice, and personal pronouns were avoided. There was no provision for including color graphics, and TOC graphics were unheard of. There was no electronic access to published papers or any electronic database. One simply had to wait for new journal issues to arrive in the library to access newly published articles.
This scientific workshop is being launched on the back of the overwhelming success of the first international AMASING 2012 workshop and features a wealth of exciting topics from the area of nanotechnology and environmental science. It provides a unique platform for effective information transmission and establishing contacts with scientists in the fields of nanotechnology and environmental science....
