In the newest episode of BrainCraft, host Vanessa Hill explores some cool new concepts for glasses that may help blind people see again!
Craniofacial growth patterns in mouse models for Apert syndrome. Apert syndrome is caused by two neighboring mutations on Fibroblast growth factor receptor 2 (FGFR2). Multimodal imaging and segmentation was used to visualize and quantitate overall morphology of soft tissues (gray), skull (yellow), inner ear (purple), nasopharynx (pink) and globe of the eye (green) in Fgfr2+/S252W Apert syndrome mice and Fgfr2+/P253R Apert syndrome mice at embryonic day 17.5 (E17.5) (left) and on the day of birth (P0) (right) (Fgfr2+/S252W mice are shown).

Oops, thanks for the worries… I’m reasonably ok and I’ll resume blogging in a few days.
About your petition on Computer Science, sure, I will make some posts listing some nice sites, also I will begin a new tag “big data”, because there is a lot of aesthetic beauty there too.
In the mean time, I can highly recommend that people take a look on Coursera:
they are pretty reliable courses and cover indeed a good number of topics about introductory Computer Science. [Oh, and free!]
Try the Particle Clicker, and you’ll be a particle physicist for a while. I already have a very productive team working tirelessly. Also, the source code of this game is freely available on GitHub under the terms of an MIT license.
An addictive incremental game that teaches players the history of high energy particle physics.
Developed during the 2014 CERN Webfest over a weekend.
Visit http://cern.ch/particle-clicker to play the game.
Tracing the aesthetic and conceptual beauty of Science since 2010. Using the power of scientific imagery to bring Science to the people who usually flees from it terrified. Although almost all fields has their spot, we try to keep the focus on the hard sciences, after all they are most in need. Oh, and you will also find a punch of humor, philosophy, history and many other tangential topics. Enjoy your trip!
