  • Very good coverage of topic
  • None
The last 20 years have seen some amazing technological developments, including PCR, mega-sequencing, and others. One of the most impressive ones however, has to be the revolution that has occurred in mass spectrometry. Now an essential technology for high throughput analyses, modern mass spectrometry has been facilitated by interesting "marriages" of instrumentation and computational analysis. Indeed, without computers, high throughput would be only a dream. The informative Ionsource site contains a cornucopia of information about mass spectrometry with a very strong emphasis on education. Tutorials, news, links, and job seeker information are all available at this informative site.

Scientifically Studying Ecstasy

MDMA (commonly known as the empathogen “ecstasy”) is classified as a Schedule 1 drug, which is reserved for compounds with no accepted medical use and a high abuse potential. Two researchers from Stanford, however, call for a rigorous scientific exploration of MDMA's effects to identify precisely how the drug works, the data from which could be used to develop therapeutic compounds.

Do you agree that ecstasy should be studied for its potential therapeutic benefits?
