By Etienne Klein

D’où vient l’univers ? Et d’où vient qu’il y a un univers ? Irrépressiblement, ces questions se posent à nous. Et dès qu’un discours prétend nous éclairer, nous tendons l’oreille, avides d’entendre l’écho du tout most desirable sign : les accélérateurs de particules vont bientôt nous révéler l’origine de l’univers en produisant des « sizeable bang sous terre » ; les données recueillies par le satellite tv for pc Planck nous dévoiler le « visage de Dieu » ; certains disent même qu’en vertu de los angeles loi de los angeles gravitation l’univers a pu se créer de lui-même, à partir de rien…
Le grand dévoilement ne serait donc devenu qu’une affaire d’ultimes petits pas ? Rien n’est moins sûr… motor vehicle de quoi parle los angeles body quand elle parle d’« origine » ? Qu’est-ce que les théories actuelles sont réellement en mesure de nous révéler ?

Proceedings of the eu Cooperation within the box of medical and Technical study (COST 825) Symposium on Mammary Gland Biology, held September 16-18, 1999, in excursions, France.
it really is tricky to overstate the evolutionary and sensible value of mammary tissue in biology. big growth has been made via researchers in a number of disciplines, fairly over the past fifteen years, in the direction of understanding the opportunity of this tissue to yield strong experimental versions for morphogenesis and tissue improvement; for mobile differentiation; for the biosynthesis and secretion of proteins, lipids, small molecules and inorganic salts; and for the coordination and law of those tactics. extra lately, the potential of exploiting the secretory epithelial cells of mammary tissue as `cell factories' has turn into a fact and the recombinant construction by means of lactating animals of progressively more proteins, precious either within the pharmaceutical and `nutraceutical' fields, is in growth or less than improvement.
additionally during this sphere of agricultural creation, genetic in addition to dietary applied sciences are below research and exploitation to optimize milk composition for varied end-uses - for example in nutrition approach and manufacture. the chances of deriving well-being enjoy the bioactive houses of a few of the minor components of milk are rising to counter the highly-publicized destructive future health effect of over the top intake of saturated animal fat.
