Beyond Discovery: The Path from Research to Human Benefit

Produced by the National Academy of Sciences, Beyond Discovery is a periodic series (4-6 times per year) of case studies written by science writers in collaboration with "prominent scientists who have been directly involved with the discoveries being described." Each case study involves recent technological and medical advances, and highlights the role played by basic science. Articles are composed of multiple short HTML pages with a number of hyperlinks within the text to related sites. Mostly well-written and interesting, the case studies are aimed at the general reader. Current topics include Designer Seeds, Sound from Silence, The Global Positioning System, and Human Gene testing. Summaries and .pdf versions of the articles are also available.
