From battling potato blight and supercomputers to nano-magnets used for cancer treatment and the Asia Research Network, the latest edition of Asia Research News features all the cutting-edge science from across Asia.
Constant technological advancements and a proliferation in cloud and mobile computing are creating new opportunities for users, but also pose challenges for data and memory storage providers (Computing pages 19-21). The ease with which technology now allows communication across borders and cultures is bringing researchers together and providing a lifeline for communities affected by natural disasters (People pages 30-36).
Asia’s innovative spirit shines through whether in the form of Hong Kong’s Stonecutters Bridge, developments in solar power, air travel, medical devices or jet engines (Physics pages 37-38; Technology pages 39-44) and with this issue ResearchSEA continues its commitment to promoting the very best research from across Asia.
