Sample text

DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) is a long, polymeric nucleic acid which takes the form of two complementary strands arranged in a double-helix. The two strands are linked by the bases adenine (A), thymine (T), cytosine (C), and guanine (G). DNA is the foundation of the molecular basis of heredity: the sequence of base pairs (A,T,C,G) forms a long serial code organized into genes (discrete, protein encoding sequences), regulatory sequences, and regions of unknown function. Genes code for the sequence of amino acids in a protein molecule; the Human Genome Project has revealed that our cells contain about 25,000 genes.

Maya: A brief history In 2003, Alias|Wavefront became Alias Systems Corporation. Then in 2006, the company was bought by Autodesk, makers of AutoCAD drafting software and 3Ds Max, another high-end 3D modeling and animation package. Autodesk continues to develop and market the Alias Systems product line: Studio Tools; SketchPad; MotionBuilder; and Maya. Maya was released commercially in 1998 by the CG software fi rm Alias|Wavefront (A|W for short), which was headquartered in Toronto, Canada. As the top-tier animation and visual effects ( VFX ) package it was by no means the work of a single software company in a single development effort.
