Bomb signatures. Seismic signals provide clues to the punch packed by nuclear devices recently tested in Pakistan and India. To see the seismograms for yourself, start at a site operated by the Incorporated Research Institutions for Seismology (http://www.iris.washington.edu/). For news, analysis, and policy background about the tests, try the Coalition on the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty site, www.clw.org/pub/clw/coalition/ctbindex.htm

Outsmarting HIV. To design better AIDS drugs, researchers need to know how HIV mutates in response to various drug treatments. Now they can turn to a new public site linking HIV gene sequences to info on treatment history. The site, launched by a Stanford University researcher in conjunction with an article on HIV resistance appearing this week in Annals of Internal Medicine, contains some 4500 HIV sequences. hivdb.stanford.edu/
