Article :: Getting Familiar with Paths in Adobe Flash CS4 Professional
One of the most important innovations in Flash was a new set of tools that made creating vector graphics as simple and intuitive as creating bitmap graphics. This excerpt, adapted from Adobe Flash CS4 Professional How-Tos: 100 Essential Techniques (Peachpit Press, ISBN 0-321-58004-4), discusses paths, the most basic element of a vector drawing.
Analyzing Molecular Interactions
Nothing can happen in biology unless something binds to something else. Although much of the effort in bioinformatics to date has focused on the detection of homology or the deduction of structure and/or function from sequence, in the long run, for bioinformatics to make a real contribution to drug design and cell biology, it will be necessary to be able to predict what other molecules a given gene product will bind to and how tight that binding will be. At present, no one knows how to do this r
Article :: Mastering Vector Design: How to Create Illustrator Patterns
David Karlins dispels some of the myths about using patterns in Adobe Illustrator. With some very simple techniques, you can create and use fascinating patterns for strokes and fills.
Article :: Editing Paths in Adobe Illustrator CS4
David Karlins shows you how to use selection and editing techniques in Adobe Illustrator CS4, including selecting paths and path segments, grouping paths, and aligning anchors.

In this excerpt from Adobe Photoshop CS4 Studio Techniques, Dan Ablan explains how to interpret and work with the Histogram panel in Adobe Photoshop CS4.
15.063 Communicating With Data (MIT)
Communicating With Data has a distinctive structure and content, combining fundamental quantitative techniques of using data to make informed management decisions with illustrations of how real decision makers, even highly trained professionals, fall prey to errors and biases in their understanding. We present the fundamental concepts underlying the quantitative techniques as a way of thinking, not just a way of calculating, in order to enhance decision-making skills. Rather than survey all

Recent decades have seen a reduction in value of clover pasture with the ease of establishing and maintaining nitrogen fertiliser-based grassland pastures. However, clover based pastures are now seen as suitable for maintaining good stocking rates, and this 16-page document

Secrets: The Ethics of Concealment and the Ethics of Science in Synthetic Biological Research Dr. Laurie Zoloth, Center for Bioethics, Science and Society, Northwestern University Increasingly sophisticated techniques allow for increasing powerful and creative tools of biology to create new or altered forms of life. Such synthetic biology may offer unprecedented avenues for drug development, alternate energy sources, and medical therapeutics. Yet increasing unease also mounts about the possibl
In NASA CONNECT The Wright Math, students will learn about the evolution of flight. They will learn how the Wright Brothers became the first human beings to successfully design, construct, and fly an airplane. Students will learn the method the Wright Brothers used in designing their airplane. They will also be introduced to NASA's Morphing Project, a radically new approach to designing aircraft of the future. They will observe NASA researchers using problem-solving techniques to design wings th
In NASA CONNECT Geometry of Exploration: Eyes Over Mars, students examine how the principles of geometry and linear and angular measurements are used to survey and map the Earth and other planets. A surveyor explains how locations like football or soccer fields and describes the tools and techniques used. Students also learn how NASA researchers use geometric shapes to navigate spacecraft to Mars and how satellites, like the Mars Global Surveyor, and the principles of geometry, are used to deter
This text manual introduces statistical analysis and its underlying philosophy, enabling students to understand how to describe the confidence they have in their analysis. Statistical analysis is one of the most widely used, and abused, techniques in the biological sciences. Statistics are ostensibly used to allow an investigator to be objective. That is, the researcher uses statistical tests to determine whether or not his/her hypothesis is supported by the data collected. Unfortunately, the
The Cardiovascular Construction Kit (CVCK) allows students to design and construct a wide range of cardiovascular systems, testing each one to see how it behaves and whether it could actually exist and survive in a real organism. CVCK provides a set of basic components, e.g., pumps, vessels, capillaries and so on, which may be pieced together to construct a cardiovascular system. Gauges and measurement techniques are provided so you can draw conclusions from your experiments. Note: CVCK is a MAC
This software can be used to investigate common molecular biology laboratory procedures using DNA or protein sequence data. These simulations and cases are based primarily on genetic and infectious disease with techniques such as: DNA electrophoresis, Southern blot, PCR, Multiplex PCR, Dot blot, ELISA, Western blot, 96-well PCR, protein electrophoresis. Case It! is collaborative BioQUEST project between the University of Wisconsin-River Falls and Michigan State University.
Cell Differentials offers a visual dataset of white blood cells that gives students practice in developing strategies and techniques for the recognition of these blood cell types. Over 100 different cell images are randomly presented with feedback on successful identification. In traditional labs, the recognition of white blood cell types can be compromised by several factors. Developmental changes can make recognition difficult and some cell types exhibit similar features. Microscopy can be a
This course aims to help students understand the basic principles and techniques used in computer aided design and manufacture process; to teach them how to use available CAD/CAE tools; and to help them acquire hands-on experience with 3D modeling and design using available CAD/CAE tools.
Operating Systems and System Programming - Fall 2008. The purpose of this course is to teach the design of operating systems and other systems. Topics we will cover include concepts of operating systems and systems programming; utility programs, subsystems, multiple-program systems; processes, interprocess communication, and synchronization; memory allocation, segmentation, paging; loading and linking, libraries; resource allocation, scheduling, performance evaluation; I/O systems, storage devic
This is an introduction to programming and computer science. This course exposes students to techniques of abstraction at several levels: (a) within a programming language, using higher-order functions, manifest types, data-directed programming, and message-passing; (b) between programming languages, using functional and rule-based languages as examples. It also relates these techniques to the practical problems of implementation of languages and algorithms on a von Neumann machine. There are se
The first portion of the class will cover topics in analog communication. Beginning with basic Fourier transform properties, techniques for analog modulation and demodulation will be developed. Insights to these problems will be uncovered along the way. The majority of this course will be devoted digital communication.
