Expression Vectors Used in Project-Oriented Teaching Laboratories Chapter 1
This resource is designed to provide a framework for developing laboratory courses in cellular and molecular biology, and to provide scientific and technological standards for use in research and teaching laboratories.
Experimental Design and Testing: Hatching and Development in Brine Shrimp
This scientific investigation uses hatching and development in brine shrimp as the biological system in which to demonstrate the laboratory model of teaching experimental design.
Burdock seeds are curved and there is a kind of hook on one end of the seed. The hook is easily caught on animal fur and the clothing of humans as they pass by. This helps the seeds spread. This is a commensalistic relationship because the burdock plant benefits while the animal or human is neither harmed nor helped.
Buffalo grazing on Wyoming prairies
Grasslands are found where rainfall is low and temperatures are extreme. Grasslands experience drought and occasional fires. The soil of grasslands is deep, moist, and nutrient rich from dead grass and other organisms, which is good for agriculture.
A female chicken is called a hen. A hen is capable of laying eggs. She has feathers to let her fly, a tail for balance, and the comb and wattle both help cool the hen off by circulating blood through them.
Blood moves to the internal structures of the body of Artemia
The heart pumps blood throughout the body. This blood carries oxygen, glucose, and other important nutrients to the cells of the body, where they are used to perform various functions.
Blood moves through the circulatory system
Arteries are blood vessels that carry blood away from the heart. Veins are blood vessels that carry blood to the heart. The circulatory system allows our organ systems to function by providing oxygen and other important nutrients required for metabolism, muscle contraction, and other functions.
Blood flow through yolk sac in zebrafish embryo
Developing Danio showing blood flow over the yolk sac and through the beating heart (note the Paramecium moving around Danio).
2.1 What is a complex number?
Number systems and the rules for combining numbers can be daunting. This unit will help you to understand the detail of rational and real numbers, complex numbers and integers. You will also be introduced to modular arithmetic and the concept of a relation between elements of a set.
Transitions : figures in space
In this video Dr Edward Sellman talks about his portrait of the late Alan Sillitoe. As well as being an expert in special needs in Education, Dr Edward Sellman is also a recognised artist and in this video he takes you round his latest exhibition and reveals all about meeting and painting the famous author. 2009 Suitable for Undergraduate Study and Community Education Dr Edward Sellman, Lecturer, School of Education Dr Edward Sellman is a member of the Centre for Research in Schools and Co
MacRetina simulates data from retinal ganglion cells in the eye to the brain. By sampling neural activity while stimulating the retina with small spots of light, students can see the dynamic excitatory and inhibitory responses of these neurons in the simulation, and map the organization of the retinal region that drives the cell's receptive field. MacRetina is modeled accurately on published data and is a realistic simulation of a lab experiment that would otherwise be beyond the reach of the
Pathway 2 Information: Citing References
The citing and referencing module is part of a wider online tutorial designed to teach a range of information skills to undergraduate students. The module aims to provide an introductory guide to why referencing and citing is important and how to reference particular types of material according to different referencing styles. This skill is required by students throughout their degree courses and backs up more traditional face-to-face teaching in this area. The module uses an interactive approa
Reading Framework for the 2009 National Assessment of Educational Progress
This Reading Framework for the 2009 National Assessment of Educational Progress sets forth the design of a test of reading comprehension. The exam requires students to read passages of written English text -- either literary or informational -- and to answer questions about what they have read. In some cases, the questions deal with facts in the text or vocabulary. In other cases, a complete answer requires a clear analysis or coherent argument supported by sound evidence from the text. This is
Conversations with History - Ronald M. George
Conversations host Harry Kreisler welcomes Ronald M. George, former Chief Justice of California. Reflecting on his years of public service, Chief Justice George traces his intellectual journey and offers his thoughts on the qualities of thinking and temperament that characterize judicial deliberation. He argues for both decisional independence and institutional independence if the judiciary is to perform its role in a democracy as a co-equal branch of government. Recalling his efforts as head o
Gerry Wright on antibiotic resistance
Gerry Wright, director of McMaster's Michael G. DeGroote Institute for Infectious Disease Research, talks about the dangers of antibiotic resistance.
Decision-Making in the Field: Lawrence Summers

Seasonal Migrations: Bald Eagle
Students join a biologist who uses satellite telemetry to track bald eagles back to their nests in Canada. They participate in an online contest and predict the location of each eagle's nest. Through these interrelated investigations, students discover that sunlight drives all living systems and they learn about the dynamic ecosystem that surrounds and connects them. Children follow the migrations of animals. They observe, research, and report their findings, and watch journeys progress on real-
