7.341 Brightening up Life: Harnessing the Power of Fluorescence Imaging to Observe Biology in Action
One summer in the 1960s a young Japanese researcher, with the help of a few high school students, chopped up ten thousand jellyfish. As a by-product of this harvest, they isolated a green fluorescent protein (GFP). Since then, GFP has triggered a revolution in our understanding of gene expression and signaling in live cells. In this seminar, we will examine how this small protein generates fluorescence, i.e. absorbs light of one wavelength and emits light of a longer wavelength. We will discuss

Experimentación en Biotecnología I (Grado en Biotecnología)
El objetivo general de la asignatura es el estudio termodinámico, desde un punto de vista experimental, de las disoluciones no ideales de electrolitos. En particular, se pretende estudiar la influencia de las sales disueltas en el agua de mar en las reacciones químicas que tienen lugar en ella. Para ello se presentan dos entornos de trabajo: uno centrado en un equilibrio heterogéneo (reacción de precipitación) y otro en uno homogéneo (reacción de formación de un complejo). La metodologí
Lecture 3: Keep it cool! 38 years of gas-turbine research
Professor Martin Oldfield on 'Keep it cool! 38 years of gas-turbine research'. Unusual short-duration wind-tunnels have been used to research, in a split second, results that normally need expensive hours. The work of one of the most successful thermo-fluid laboratories over the years was illustrated in Professor Oldfield's lecture.
