It could have been revolutionary but just a few months after it was published in Nature, a new technique that would have allowed scientists to easily discern the atomic structure of molecules is on the ropes. Does a correction and a failure to reproduce the technique in other labs spell the end for 'crystal-free crystallography'? www.nature.com/...

Should we set limits on what science can probe? Are some areas too questionable to investigate? Nature explores taboo genetics - the genetics of IQ, race, sexuality and violence - and the scientists that have crossed the red line to work on them. A poll asks if you think each of these areas should be off-limits to scientists... www.nature.com/... Nature Publishing Group

Twisty beams of light could boost the traffic-carrying capacity of the Internet, effectively adding new levels to the information superhighway, suggests research published in Science. Internet traffic is growing exponentially and researchers have sought ways to get ever more information into the fibre-optic cables that carry it. Now researchers have successfully squeezed extra data-carrying streams of light into a fibre-optic cable and transmitted it for a record 1.1 kilometres.

Although discussed and feared for millennia, progress towards understanding epilepsy has been slow — even with help from modern genetic and neurological analysis.

Nature Outlook Obesity: Rates of obesity continue to rise worldwide. About 65% of Americans are either overweight or obese, resulting in 300,000 excess deaths per year. Yet surprisingly little is known about the science which underpins this global epidemic. Why do some people seem predisposed to weight gain? And how does appetite actually work? Devising an effective strategy to combat obesity will require the integration of insights from neuroscience, genetics and the behavioural sciences.

Given how common – and how dangerous – obesity is, it's amazing how little is known about the science underlying this condition. Why do some people seem predisposed to weight gain? And how does appetite actually work? Devising an effective strategy to combat the obesity epidemic will require the integration of insights from neuroscience, genetics and the behavioural sciences.
