Virtual laboratories in Molecular and Cell Biology - Intracellular signalling
A virtual laboratory which allows users to analyse intracellular signalling pathways. The programme allows the student to stimulate cells for different periods of time and analyse phosphorylation/activation of kinases in the signalling pathways, using SDS-PAGE and immunoblotting. Use of different cell types (dominant-negative mutants) and pull-down assays allows them to derive the hierarchy in the signalling pathways. The programme first introduces the theory behind the techniques. It then takes
Viticulture - Pest Management Through Eco-Methods
Before pesticides were invented, the only ways to control pests, diseases and weeds were by ‘cultural’ techniques, such as hoeing weeds, crop rotations to avoid disease and weed-seed carryover, intercropping.
The Bacteriology of Faeces and Identification of Bacteria

TALAT Lecture 4400: Introduction to Friction, Explosive and Ultrasonic Welding Processes of Aluminiu
This lecture gives a brief introduction to friction, explosive and ultrasonic welding techniques of aluminium; it describes the possibilities and results of joining aluminium to different metals, e.g. stainless steel. General mechanical engineering background and basic knowledge in aluminium metallurgy is assumed.
TALAT Lecture 3206: The Feeding of Castings
This lecture provides an introduction to the techniques used to compensate for the solidification shrinkage of castings. The students will be able to understand the basic principles of how to design a feeder system to produce a shrinkage-free casting. Basic knowledge of castings production, basic physics and metallurgy background is assumed.
TALAT Lecture 1202: Metallography of Aluminium Alloys
This lecture aims at providing a survey of the metallographic techniques available for the examination of aluminium and its alloys. The information must be sufficient to be sure that the students and the users are able to choose the most suitable technique to solve their problems in the examination of samples. The lecture should contain a direct understanding of the main problems in the metallography of the different classes of aluminium materials.
The Viking Age: England and Francia
Scandinavians, popularly known as Vikings, began to explore and settle in Europe from the ninth century. Contemporary Christian writers voiced their dismay at what they saw as the sudden eruption of these savage pagans into their area. Commentators since, down to the 20th century have largely echoed these writers' views, sometimes portraying the Scandinavians as mindless thugs led by psychopaths. In a period when savagery in warfare was commonplace, the Vikings have been placed by some in a spec
