The Gene Team
The lives and livelihoods of thousands of South Carolinians are being bettered, thanks to Stephen Kresovich and the molecular and population genomics research he and his Clemson faculty and student team are spearheading. Genomics, simply put, is the complete genetic makeup of an individual — every last gene, which is roughly 30,000 of them. Kresovich is then applying those genomics and bioinformatics concepts to address some of the state’s most pressing issues in agriculture, conservation,
Introduction Knowledge technologies embody formal models of how the world works. If well designed, these models can relieve people of mundane activities and free them up to concentrate on what they do best. At their best, knowledge technologies can detect patterns in information which are too complex for humans to detect, or which they do not have time to detect, and can deliver this information to the right people, at the right time, in the right form for interpretation. This unit looks at the cor

Frustration of some Americans over the policy of segregation and resistance by other Americans to integration eventually gave rise to the acts of civil disobedience that would mark the beginning of the civil rights movement.

Global Population Growth
The world's population will grow to 9 billion over the next 50 years -- and only by raising the living standards of the poorest can we check population growth.

As a doctor and researcher, Hans Rosling identified a new paralytic disease induced by hunger in rural Africa. Now he looks at the bigger picture of social and economic development. Run time 10:04.

Calhoun still carried some influence with the president, who at Calhoun’s urging encouraged Congress to enact the Tariff of 1832. This new tariff reduced the rate of the Tariff of 1828. However, producers in the south remained distraught over the high tariffs and res
