Why software is like a puppy

Software is like a puppy – it needs attendance, maintenance and care, or it dies. This and many other points were on the agenda at a 2-day workshop called “Software in the life sciences: development, usability, sustainability”.

Creating flavours and fragrances from “shiki” cell factories

A big new EU project called SHIKIFACTORY100 aims at producing more than 100 high value compounds and chemicals such as flavours and fragrances biologically. This will be done using genetically optimized cells, designed to produce the desired compounds through the cellular pathway called ‘shikimate’.
