Cyanobacteria Health Page
This Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Health Studies page focuses on cyanobacteria, single-celled organisms thought to be the origin of plants. Cyanobacteria live in fresh, brackish, or marine water and are of concern to the CDC and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) because some can form harmful blooms that deplete the oxygen and block sunlight that other organisms need to live. They can also produce powerful toxins that affect the brain and liver of animals and humans. This
Hands on the Land Teaching Materials
Hands on the Land (HOL) is a network of field classrooms stretching across America from Alaska to Florida. HOL is sponsored by Partners in Resource Education, a collaboration of five Federal agencies, a non-profit foundation, schools, and other private sector partners. Public lands comprise approximately one-third of the acreage of the U.S., and you'll soon see they are rich in historical, archaeological and environmental learning opportunities. Through the HOL network of field classrooms, Feder
Radiology Lab 5: Head and Neck
Introduction to concepts of imaging of the head and neck region, with focus on angiography and cross-sectional methods.
Digital Filter Structures and Quantization Error Analysis
Practical implementations of digital filters introduce errors due to finite-precision data and arithmetic. Many different structures, both for FIR and IIR filters, offer different trade-offs between computational complexity, memory use, precision, and error. Approximating the errors as additive noise provides fairly accurate estimates of the resulting quantization noise levels, which can be used both to predict the performance of a chosen implementation and to determine the precision needed to m
Digital Filter Design
An electrical engineering course on digital filter design.
Demo for Dummies
This course is designed for dummies to illustrate how even they can add new knowledge and distribute it world wide.
Control Systems Laboratory
This course introduces students to fundamental control systems theory with emphasis on design and implementation. These labs focus on technical implementation issues of classical control theory in the frequency domain and modern control theory in the state-space. Design and implementation for this course is done using National Instruments LabVIEW software and hardware for control and Educational Control Products (ECP) hardware for the plants.

Computational Sciences Lecture Series at UW-Madison
The goal of the Computational Sciences Lecture Series (CSLS) is to bring together researchers from mathematics (pure and applied), computer science, physics, and engineering to promote cross-fertilization between these fields and to establish computational science as an active research discipline at UW-Madison. The CSLS will consist of several half-day meetings during each year, each meeting consisting of three lectures by distinguished researchers, grouped around a common theme.
A brief tutorial on CNXML - an XML language by Connexions
Bios 533 Bioinformatics
Computer laboratory modules for the Introduction to Bioinformatics course. This course is designed for the beginning graduate student or advanced undergraduate in the biosciences. The goal is to introduce the student to various biologically relevant databases, methods to effectively search the databases, and an overall view of the various aspects of computational biology.
Bioinformatics- UH course
This is an introduction to the bioinformatics website provided by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI). It includes an overview of the basic mission of NCBI and an introduction to the most commonly used biological databases available on the website and the tools for viewing and analyzing the data.
This course has been created as an introduction to audio localization, and how beamforming can be applied in a real-time environment.
Array Signal Processing
This is our ELEC 301 Project for the Fall 2004 semester. We implemented a uniform linear array of six microphones. We then sampled the data and analyzed it in LabVIEW in order to listen in one direction. We also explored listening for a particular frequency and its direction.
Understanding Your French Horn
For eighth grade and up, a series of lessons that can be offered by an instructor or done as a self-study course, to teach French horn players more about their instrument.
