6.7 Summary
How does the computer's peculiar binary world of digital entities differ from our analogue world of colour, sound, taste and touch? This unit explores the way in which information, in the form of text, still and moving images, and sound can cross the boundary from the analogue universe into a digital world.

Lighting Up: Analysis Of Yeast RAS Genes Using A Chemiluminescent Southern Blot Procedure
Genomic and plasmid-encoded RAS2 genes from Baker's and brewing yeast strains will be analyzed using a shortened Southern blot procedure employing chemiluminescence. Unique parts of this procedure are the gravity-driven "upside down" transfer and a rotisserie-like hybridization oven, which greatly facilitate shortening the transfer time to 45 minutes and the hybridization step to 60 minutes. Chemiluminescence obviates problems associated with radioisotopes without sacrificing sensitivity: the pl

Newton's Laws of Motion
This 4:20 minute long  video shows the three main laws of motion developed by Sir Isaac Newton and is down with excellent graphics.
The first law of motion, inertia, is when an object will not move or else move in a straight line unless an unbalanced force is on it. The second law of motion is the force mass and acceleration; acceleration fo an object depends on the mass and magnitude of the force. (force=massxacceleration) The third law of motion is the law of action and reaction. In
