Summary:
The scientific analysis of biological evidence isn't just determining what something is -- it's also learning how and where it was developed.

The scientific analysis of biological evidence isn't just determining what something is -- it's also learning how and where it was developed.

Researchers at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory want to determine how a biological sample was made. To do this, researchers are seeking clues, or markers, such as changes in the sample's metal and proteins.

As markers are identified and boundaries of each piece of information are defined, the researchers will integrate the data into a computational tool to help analyze the sample's possible origins. This extraction of analytical data is needed in the bioforensic field.

The research is being done for the Department of Homeland Security's Science and Technology Directorate.

Porsche CEO Says Supercar Is Not Dead: Cue the Spyder 918

TheStreet (Apr. 16, 2014) The Porsche Spyder 918 proves that, in an automotive world obsessed with fuel efficiency, the supercar is not dead. Porsche North America CEO Detlev von Platen attributes the brand's consistent sales growth -- 21% in 2013 -- with an investment in new technology and expanded performance dynamics. The hybrid Spyder 918 has 887 horsepower and 944 lb-ft of torque, but it can run 18 miles on just an electric charge. The $845,000 vehicle is not a consumer-targeted vehicle but a brand statement.
