"RNAi: A Revolution in Biology and Therapeutics, Spring 2010"
"Despite centuries of effort, modern medicine still struggles to find the source of disease and to provide specific treatment without side effects. Both traditional small molecules and protein-based therapeutics have achieved only limited success. What is the next therapeutic frontier? The answer may be RNA interference. In this course, we will focus on the therapeutic potential of RNAi. We will discuss its discovery functions in normal biological processes, utility as an experimental tool, pote

Inheritance of Aldehyde Oxidase in Drosophila melanogaster
This exercise illustrates to introductory level students that Mendelian patterns of inheritance can be studied using biochemical assays as an indication of biochemical phenotypes. Students investigate the pattern of inheritance of aldehyde oxidase in different strains of Drosophila. Using this information, they study progeny from a mating between unknown parents, develop hypotheses about the parental genotypes, and investigate the results using chi-square test. In addition, students determine th

The doctrine refers to the fact that, within the hierarchical structure of the English courts, the decision of a higher court will be binding on a lower court. In general terms, this means th

Mitochondrial DNA from Lumbriculus variegatus: Isolation and Restriction Digest Analysis
In this activity, mitochondria are isolated from the California blackworm, Lumbriculus variegatus, by homogenization and differential centrifugation. A modified plasmid miniprep procedure (alkaline lysis) is then used to isolate DNA from these mitochondria. Single and double enzyme restriction digests of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) are analyzed by agarose gel electrophoresis. Sizes of mtDNA restriction fragments are estimated from gel results and are used to determine the total size of the L. vari

"The mammalian brain easily outperforms any computer. It adapts and changes constantly. Most importantly, the brain enables us to continuously learn and remember. What are the molecular mechanisms that lead to learning and memory? What are the cellular roles that activity-regulated gene products play to implement changes in the brain?How do nerve cells, their connections (synapses), and brain circuits change over time to store information? We will discuss the molecular mechanisms of neuronal pla
