HP Poland gave the government official bags filled with hundreds of thousands of dollars of cash

"For any agricultural plant, having a genome is a prerequisite for any sort of high technology breeding or molecular modification. Without a genome, we couldn't do any real advanced research on coffee that would allow us to improve it — not in this day and age."
So, yes, you can do selective breeding without having the genome sequenced, and you can try to determine over the course of generations which plants have or may produce the desired traits, but if you do have the genome, you can greatly speed up the process by genetically checking the qualities of the plants and basing your choices on that.
Hey Slashdot, does anyone knows why telegrams are peppered with the word 'STOP'? Was there no punctuation mark to use a period?

Munger also reported the problems with the connector pins, which Oak Ridge Today's John Huotari noted was due to too much gold mixed in with the solder. Gold is used for connectors because it does not oxidize quickly, and because of its high electrical conductivity; however, when mixed with solder that contains tin, the gold and tin can combine, making the combination brittle under certain conditions. Cray is reportedly replacing the connectors to alleviate the problem.
