Proteins and Proteomics
Researchers know it is the proteins made by a cell that determine what that cell does. This session explores the varying complements of proteins and their effects, structures, and interactions within the mechanism of cell function, and introduces the larger picture of proteomics and systems biology.
Cell Biology and Cancer
Cancers result when genes required for normal cell function are mutated and the resulting cells undergo other changes ultimately leading to uncontrolled division. This session reveals new information on normal cell function, proto-oncogenes and tumor suppressor genes and their role in the cell cycle, and current research in drug design for specific cancers.

How Cell Phone Recycling Works
How Cell Phone Recycling Works is a short video that explains the importance of recycling cell phones and goes into some details into what they contain. A good video to show students when studying the environment as they are usually not aware of the dangers.
Biotechnology: Detection of Cell Clones
Professor George Wolfe discusses detection of cell clones in this video from Thinkwell's online Biology series. The video uses lecture format along with notes and illustrations on a board. Run time 08:59.
Reading the Code of Life DNA is central to cell activity, replicating with great fidelity and carrying the information for all proteins. Organisms also regulate the products made from genes in an effort to conserve energy and adapt to new environments.

Jeremy Siegel: Interest Rates Look Stable, but Beware the China Bubble
The U.S. economy may be getting stronger, but that doesn't mean interest rates will go up when the Federal Reserve meets next week on January 31. According to Wharton finance professor Jeremy Siegel, interest rates should hold firm at their current level for quite a while, and "the big question for the market is whether there will be any drops at all this year." He believes there is "a balance in the economy between strength and moderate inflation," and the Fed is unlikely to move interest rates
Cells - Centers for the Week of 8/30/10
Mrs. Matthews students rotate through science centers each week. This week, the class is learning about living things, the parts of a plant and animal cell, and unicellular organisms. Their centers for the week include (1) a video about microbes found on Watchknow called Magic School Bus is in a Pickle (2) three interactive microscope websites on the Whiteboard (3) an experiment with a chicken egg (one large cell) soaked in vinegar to reveal the membrane (4) an art activity where the stud
Mrs. Matthews Centers for Week of Sept. 13
Mrs. Matthews science class has been studying the organs and systems in the human body. They have built on their studies over the past two weeks from smallest to largest: organelles, cells, tissues, organs, systems, and organisms. This weeks six centers included (1) A.R. books read with partners (2) crossword puzzle that included definitions of organs and systems (3) flashcards with pictures of various key organs in the body (4) two web sites using multiple choice quiz/game formats (5) magneti
Semiconductor device technology has transformed our world by making possible supercomputers, personal computers, cell phones, ipods, and much more that we now take for granted. Moore's Law observes that the number of transistors (the basic building blocks of electronic systems) per electronic chip doubles each technology generation. This doubling of transistor density each technology generation has continued since Gordon Moore, one of the co-founders of Intel, made his observation in 1965. It ha
Engineering Nanomedical Systems
This course will cover the basic concepts of design of integrated nanomedical systems for diagnostics and therapeutics. Topics to be covered include: why nanomedical approaches are needed, cell targeting strategies, choice of core nanomaterials, technologies for testing composition and structure of multilayered nanomedical systems, optimizing zeta potentials, design and testing of cell and intracellular targeting systems, in-vivo issues, drug delivery and proper dosing, assessing efficacy of dru
What are all those crazy parts and pieces of a cell? What is the procaryote and the eukaryote? Video explains these two different types of cells.
The Discovery of Penicillin
In this video segment adapted from A Science Odyssey, learn what led British researcher Alexander Fleming to the chance discovery of antibacterial properties of a mold extract he later named penicillin. After treating World War I battlefield casualties, Fleming began searching for compounds that would ward off infections in humans. Returning from vacation in the summer of 1928, he noticed that mold was partly covering one of the agar plates in which he had been growing bacteria, and that the mol
Eric Giler wants to untangle our wired lives with cable-free electric power. Here, he covers what this sci-fi tech offers, and demos MIT's breakthrough version, WiTricity -- a near-to-market invention that may soon recharge your cell phone, car, pacemaker. As the CEO of MIT-inspired WiTricity, Eric Giler has a plan to beam electric power through the air to wirelessly power your laptop or recharge your car. You may never plug in again. Run time 10:13.
