20.109 Laboratory Fundamentals in Biological Engineering (MIT)
This course introduces experimental biochemical and molecular techniques from a quantitative engineering perspective. Rigorous quantitative data collection, statistical analysis, and conceptual understanding of instrumentation design and application form the underpinnings of this course. The four discovery based modules include DNA Engineering, Protein Engineering, Systems Engineering, and Biomaterials Engineering. Additional information is available on the course Wiki (hosted on OpenWetWare.) T
6.253 Convex Analysis and Optimization (MIT)
6.253 develops the core analytical issues of continuous optimization, duality, and saddle point theory, using a handful of unifying principles that can be easily visualized and readily understood. The mathematical theory of convex sets and functions is discussed in detail, and is the basis for an intuitive, highly visual, geometrical approach to the subject.
IPL: Gary Wilson: Shall we lower the lifeboats? A marine ecological view of warming climates - Audio
Inaugural Professorial Lecture from Gary Wilson, head of Marine Science and researcher in Geology at University of Otago. The lecture was entitled "Shall we lower the lifeboats? A marine ecological view of warming climates." The lecture was delivered on Thursday the 1st of September, 2011
Electron Flow in Photosynthesis
The fascinating concept of electron flow is explored with simple equipment in an exercise for first-year students. Students use a spectrophotometer to generate an absorption spectrum for spinach chloroplasts, and then make a prediction about the effect of wavelength of light on the rate of photosynthesis. Students design their own carefully controlled experiments to test their predictions.
Foundations of Human Memory and Learning, Spring 2002
Surveys literature on human memory and learning. Focuses on the organization of memory at cognitive and neural levels, the basis of remembering and forgetting, and false memories. Cognitive theory and behavioral evidence are integrated with data from neuro-psychology and neuroimaging.
Defeating Leukemia: Quincy Pedew
Watch leukemia patient Quincy Pedew's story about receiving bone marrow transplants at Duke and how he battled to beat cancer.
Triumphs of Experience
http://www.hup.harvard.edu/catalog.php?isbn=9780674059825 At a time when people are living into their tenth decade, the longest longitudinal study of human development ever undertaken offers welcome news for old age: our lives evolve in our later years and often become more fulfilling. Among the surprising findings: people who do well in old age did not necessarily do so well in midlife, and vice versa.

Students, faculty and staff gave the Magazine of Elon some inside info on the tradition of Noonball on Elon's campus.
DegreeWorks: Simplifying the registration process
Students in the Samuel Ginn College of Engineering have had the opportunity to use and see the benefits of DegreeWorks. Click on the links below to see how their experiences with the program have made registration, changing majors, and spending time with advisors more efficient.
Why do we love Facebook?
Alex Sevigny, program director of McMaster University's Master of Communications Management Program, discusses the mass appeal of Facebook, and why it's remained a personal communications giant.
Will users know about Facebook's IPO?

Blood Glucose Monitoring
This pharmacological resource demonstrates the procedure in quatitative measuring of glucose level in the blood. The OneTouch Horizpon Test Strip with the OneTouch Horizon Blood Glusose meter will be used for this purpose. These test strips are for in vtiro diagnostic use, that is, testing outside the body. The video demonstration covers the procedure form preparation to observing for results with accompanying audio to explain each step.
Haematology - The Red Blood Cell Count
This programme demonstrates in a video lesson the procedure in determining whether there is adequate number of red blood cell in circulation. The procedure covers the description of the laboratory instruments and materials that are used in such tests. At the end of the procedure, an observation of the test result is made and interpreted with the use of a microscope.
HIV Antibody Test Using A Rapid HIV Card
HIV antibody tests are specifically designed for routine diagnostic testing of adults; these tests are inespensive and extremely accurate. Most people develop detectable antibodies approximately 30 days after infection, although some seroconvert later. The vast majority of people (99%) have detectable antibody by three months after HIV infection; a six month window is extremely rare with modern antibody testing.
