Medicines by Design
Medicines By Design aims to explain how scientists unravel the many different ways medicines work in the body and how this information guides the hunt for drugs of the future. Pharmacology is a broad discipline encompassing every aspect of the study of drugs, including their discovery and development and the testing of their action in the body. Much of the most promising pharmacological research going on at universities across the country is sponsored by the National Institute of General Medical

Algae Experiments
The material found at this site provides original, multidisciplinary, inquiry-based ideas to help enrich science teaching using the world famous Great Salt Lake as a springboard theme. During the lesson students will have the opportunity to view two types of algae (fresh water and Great Salt Lake species) under 400x magnification with a compound microscope. Students will make observations and record their observations on a recording sheet where they will describe what they see through drawing a

Privacy
Though it brings us many benefits, the march of technology makes an encompassing surveillance network seem almost inevitable, and radically changes our expectations of privacy. We owe many of the expectations of privacy we used to enjoy to a combination of immature technology and insufficient manpower to monitor us. But these protective inefficiencies are giving way to technologies of data processing and digital surveillance that will change our beliefs about privacy. We are widely tracked by pu

Mitochondrial Control Region
Every human cell has a "second" genome, found in the cell's energy-generating organelle, the mitochondrion. In fact, each mitochondrion has several copies of its own genome, and there are several hundred to several thousand mitochondria per cell. This means that the mitochondrial (mt) genome is highly amplified. While each cell contains only two copies of a given nuclear gene (one on each of the paired chromosomes), there are thousands of copies of a given mt gene per cell. Because of this high

Introduction to Biology
This introductory course defines biology and its relationship to other sciences. It examines the overarching theories of life from biological research and also explores the fundamental concepts and principles of the study of living organisms and their interaction with the environment. Learners will examine how life is organized into hierarchical levels; how living organisms use and produce energy; how life grows, develops, and reproduces; how life responds to the environment to maintain internal

Darwin's mother and the miniature: with Randal Keynes
Charles Darwin's mother Susannah Wedgwood died when he was just eight, and he could never remember her face - until he discovered a long-hidden portrait of her as a young woman. Hear Darwin's great-great-grandson Randal Keynes explain why finally seeing this miniature of his mother (on display at the Fitzwilliam Museum) was so significant for the great naturalist, and why portraits of loved ones were so important to both the Wedgwood and Darwin families.

Combien d’objets dans une image ?

Dans cet exposé Jean-Jacques Lévy propose de décortiquer quelques algorithmes d'étiquetage des objets dans une image, c'est à dire de segmentation de cette image en régions homogènes, et de regarder en détail la complexité algorithmique d'un tel mécanisme. Cela permet de montrer dans un cas concret, quels formalismes permettent d'analyser les performances d'un algorithme et de vérifier sa validité. On y croise la fonction d’Ackermann dont le rôle est essentiel en informatique

Orchestrating cell separation in plants: What are the risks and benefits?
 Professor Jerry Roberts

In this podcast, Professor Roberts from the School of Biosciences discusses his research into the mechanism responsible for regulating cell separation in plants. In particular how plants ‘shed’ parts of themselves such as leaves or fruit. Professor Roberts explores the potential application of his research, through prevention or encouraging of the ‘shedding’ proces
