7.89 Topics in Computational and Systems Biology (MIT)
This is a seminar based on research literature. Papers covered are selected to illustrate important problems and approaches in the field of computational and systems biology, and provide students a framework from which to evaluate new developments. The MIT Initiative in Computational and Systems Biology (CSBi) is a campus-wide research and education program that links biology, engineering, and computer science in a multidisciplinary approach to the systematic analysis and modeling of complex bio
Is there a Crisis in World Journalism? Dr Suzanne Franks
Suzanne Franks is Director of Research at Kent University’s Centre for Journalism. At the start of her journalism career she worked with the BBC as a researcher on documentaries and then joined the Television Current Affairs department, producing programmes such as Newsnight, Watchdog, The Money Programme and Panorama. In the 1990s she started an independent production company, Sevenday Productions, which was awarded the first outside contract for the televising of Parliament. She was based in

Directing the Royal Shakespeare Company - Vikki Heywood
Vikki Heywood is the Executive Director of the Royal Shakespeare Company based in Stratford Upon Avon. She is responsible for 20 productions each year, 700 staff and an annual budget of 30 million pounds. The RSC is also deep into a rebuilding project in Stratford. In this Coventry Conversation Vikki discusses life at the Royal Shakespeare Company. This talk is also available to watch on CUTV
Creative Life After Coventry - Verity Pabla, The Don Burroni and Brad Powell
Three creative graduates - Verity Pabla, Brad Powell and 'the Don Burroni' - came back to Coventry University to discuss how they have set up their own creative businesses. Verity Pabla co-founded I’m Not a Machine Productions and launched as a professional company in late 2007. Her company has developed a reputation for being innovative, resourceful, free-spirited and truly creative through, in the most part, music and film work. 'The Don Burroni' conceived, scripted, produced, directed and
iCase image - Influenza neuraminidase
A “ribbon” representation of the structure of influenza virus neuraminidase tetramer based upon public domain atomic coordinates in the Protein Data Bank. On the left is a “side” view”, and on the right is a “top” view of the same tetramer. Sialic acid is shown in a ball-and-stick atomic representation in the active site. iCase bioukoer

This example provides calculations on concentrated load of members based on Eurocode 9.
Ni-Superalloy, as-extruded microstructure
Micrograph shows a fully recrystallized microstructure containing many equiaxed grains and γ' precipitates. In addition to this there are also several carbides and borides (seen as white). There is evidence of misorientation between adjacent grains, demonstrated by the large degree of contrast. View schematic diagram of γ' microstructure
Edexcel HND unit : engineering science (Nqf L4) : document transcript
This is a document transcript about Edexcel HN Unit: Engineering Science (NQF L4). The aim of the unit is to investigate a number of major scientific principles that underpin the design and operation of engineering systems. It is a broad-based unit, covering both mechanical and electrical principles. It is intended to give an overview that will provide the basis for further study in specialist areas of engineering. This open educational resource was released through the Higher Education Acade
Mini project : USB temperature logging : presentation transcript
This is a Mini Project presentation about USB temperature logging. It is part of the 2009/10 BEng in Electrical Engineering (course number 2ELE0066) from the University of Hertfordshire. All the mini projects are designed as level two modules of the undergraduate programmes. The aim of this project is to develop a temperature logging system based on USB development Kit. The temperature logging system should collect ambient temperature samples, sample manipulation and display the data in a tex
Particle technology : hindered systems and thickening
This is a video of the third lecture in the module Particle Technology, delivered to second year students who have already studied basic fluid mechanics. Hindered systems is mainly about sedimentation of concentrated suspensions. The way concentrated dispersions behave is also covered: buoyancy correction and viscosity for Newtonian suspensions. Industrial thickener design is included, based on incompressible settling behaviour. This material is suitable for HND, BSc, BEng, MEng, and MSc leve
Cardiology Examination - Examination of the hands
Look at the hands to see if there is evidence of: - clubbing - cyanosis: are hands cold or warm? - stigmata of endocarditis - splinter haemorrhages - Osler’s nodes - Janeway lesions - nicotine stains - capillary refill time
Chemical Water Quality Measurement For Ecologists
Short video introducing and illustrating the type of field based chemical water quality measurement carried out by ecologists. Phosphate measurement is used as the example. Aimed at students without previous field experience of water quality sampling.
