No Easy Answers: Decoding the Economy's Mixed Messages
Corporate earnings have surged and stocks have soared, but the housing market is still weak. Interest rates remain low, but are rising. Many countries' economies are perking up, but a jump in commodities prices is producing inflation. Governments in the United States and Europe are wrestling with huge budget deficits and debt problems. For insight, Knowledge@Wharton talks to Wharton professors Jeremy Siegel, Franklin Allen and Susan Wachter.Author(s):

Teaching Western Blots with T antigen and p53
Students perform Western blots with polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis of detergent extracts of SV40-transformed cell lines grown in monolayer culture. The gels are blotted onto nitrocellulose and treated with a monoclonal antibody against SV40 T antigen or against the tumor suppressor p53. Blots are then treated with a secondary antibody (anti-mouse IgG conjugated to horseradish peroxidase), and exposed to revealing chemicals and x-ray film. I give one application: induction of p53 by ultraviol
Using the Worm, Caenorhabditis elegans, in Undergraduate Genetics and Developmental Biology Laborato
C. elegans is easy to use, transparent, reproduces quickly, and has a cloned genome. All of these factors make it an ideal system for use in introductory, genetics or developmental biology labs. This lab familiarizes students with the life cycle, development, terminology, and common mutant phenotypes of C. elegans. It also introduces the use of GFP transgenic worms to visualize specific cell types in the worm. A detailed sample experiment is included that takes students through using genetic cro
In this hands-on activity, students build their own two-cell battery. They also determine which electrolyte solution is best suited for making a battery.
