Researchers solve 'mammoth' evolutionary puzzle - Hendrik Poinar
A DNA-based study sheds new light on the complex evolutionary history of the woolly mammoth, suggesting it mated with a completely different and much larger species. The research, which appears in the BioMed Central's open access journal Genome Biology, found the woolly mammoth, which lived in the cold climate of the Arctic tundra, interbred with the Columbian mammoth, which preferred the more temperate regions of North America and was some 25 per cent larger.

Panel 4: Economic Impacts of HSR: Lessons for California
Other countries have decades of experience living with HSR and observing how it has influenced their urban economies. While HSR has broad, and often difficult to quantify, economic impacts, experiences from the Europe and Japan suggest that HSR can increase productivity and competitiveness by reducing the "time/space relationship" between cities. This panel will explore the economic impacts of HSR projects abroad and offer timely lessons for California to maximize the economic benefits of HSR fo

Organelle Isolation and Marker Enzyme Assay
Cells contain many specialized structures known as organelles which perform a variety of specific functions. To obtain precise information about the structure and functions of subcellular organelles, it is imperative to isolate them free from contaminating organelles. Marker enzymes are known to be localized exclusively in specific organelles and are used to monitor the separation of these organelles. In this exercise the homogenate of Dictyostelium discoideum will be fractionated by differentia

Cycads (Cycas revoluta)
Cycads look like palms but are not among the flowering plants. Cycad seeds develop on specialized leaves. These leaves pack together to form a cone.
In this activity, students investigate how different riparian ground covers, such as grass and pavement, affect river flooding. They learn about permeable and impermeable materials through the measurement how much water is absorbed by several different household materials in a model riverbed. Students use what they learn to make recommendations for engineers developing permeable pavement. Also, they consider several different limitations for design in the context of a small community.
Household energy audit
Students review the electrical appliances used at home and estimate the energy used for each. The results can help to show the energy hogs that could benefit from conservation or improved efficiency.

4.2 Naturalism and reductive explanation
What is consciousness? How does the brain generate consciousness and how can a science of the mind describe and explain it adequately? This unit will introduce you to the slippery phenomenon that is consciousness, as well as some of the difficulties consciousness presents to science and philosophy.
Directed in 1971 by Robert Alan Weiss for the Department of Chemistry of Stanford University and imprinted with the "free love" aura of the period, this short film continues to be shown in biology class today. It has since spawn a series of similar funny attempts at vulgarizing protein synthesis. Narrated by Paul Berg, 1980 Nobel prize for Chemistry.
