Geometric Methods in Structural Computational Biology
This course is a short series of lectures on Structural Computational Biology, with an emphasis on geometric algorithms. Topics covered include basic data structures for modeling proteins; kinematics and inverse kinematics of protein chains; distance measures and alignment algorithms for protein structures; motif finding for the functional annotation of proteins; the application of robotics-derived methods to problems in protein modeling; and protein-ligand docking. The development of this cours
HyperBrain: Pathway Quiz 06 - Visual System
One of eighteen quizzes on neuroanatomy accompanying the HyperBrain tutorial.
Anatomical structures of a dissected brain are identified in this fourth video from UCLA Interactive Neurosciences.

Extra, Extra, Read All About It: Microbes Create Earth’s Atmosphere
You have been selected as a member of a group to interest fourth and fifth grade students in current science issues. As you searched for science topics to capture their attention, you came across this headline: Microbes Create Earth's Atmosphere. Although this seems like a tabloid heading, it is not. NASA researchers are studying bacteria, other microbes, and the gases they produce in microbial mat ecosystems to see how life formed on Earth. Early microbial ecosystems are also studied to help sc
Welcome to the Dzanga-Sangha
This fun Web site is part of OLogy, where kids can collect virtual trading cards and create projects with them. Here, they take a close look at the interdependence of all living things in the Dzanga-Sangha. The site opens by introducing kids to BaAka, a young girl who will guide them through the site. In the Connect the Dots, an interactive game, kids learn how the people, animals, and plants depend on each other to thrive three habitats.
The Amazing Microbe Hunters
This activity from our family magazine series provides a fun way for kids to learn about how early microbe discoveries led to later ones. The online activity begins with a page of directions for how to play this "hidden picture" challenge. Kids meet the people behind six key discoveries: Anthony van Leeuwenhoek, Edward Jenner, Louis Pasteur, Alexander Fleming, Jonas Salk, Luc Montagnier, and Robert Gallo. To uncover each portion of the hidden picture (an animated microscope) and move to the next
Promises: Understanding the Israeli/Palestinian Conflict
The film looks at the conflict through the eyes of seven children from Israeli and Palestinian backgrounds, living in this harsh war torn land. Students will explore how differences of opinion, ideas, and biases shaped by cultural, religion, and historical influences, affect others and themselves.
Opening Nights: Teatro Visin
SPARK follows Teatro Visin de San Jose, a Latino community theatre organizations in San Jose, California as they mount a new theatre work called Conjunto. This Educator Guide offers activities related to Latino/Chicano Theatre, the internment of the Japanese, and theatre.
Freedom = Democracy: The Importance of Free Press in Maintaining a Democracy
Freedom of the press is one of the rights protected by the 1st Amendment and is essential to a democracy. Through the activities in this lesson, students will analyze the importance of free press in a democracy and how that freedom has evolved over time. Students will also see how a restricted freedom of the press, like that found in Iraq, helps dictators maintain power.
