DNA microarray analysis is one of the fastest-growing new technologies in the field of genetic research. Scientists are using DNA microarrays to investigate everything from cancer to pest control. Now you can do your own DNA microarray experiment! Here you will use a DNA microarray to investigate the differences between a healthy cell and a cancer cell.
Bioinformatic Insights Into Mammalian Gene Regulation: Can Keystrokes Confront Cancer?
Dr. Laura Elnitski, Head of the Genomic Functional Analysis Section, Genome Technology Branch NHGRI/NIHDr. Elnitski uses experimental and Bioinformatic methods to discover non-coding functional elements in the human genome. On 7 March 2008, Dr. Elnitski came to MSU-Bozeman to participate in the Women In Bioinformatics Seminar Series.
Keeping a Genetics Field Journal
By keeping a field journal, kids gain insight into local wildlife and the role of genetics in this OLogy activity. The activity begins by telling kids that scientists learn about animals by observing them and by analyzing DNA. They then are given directions for how to keep a field journal that tracks the appearance and behavior of an animal of their choice. Kids are asked to write down any questions they have about the animal that could be answered with DNA analysis. The activity includes a samp
Structured Systems Analysis - Structured Charts
This example forms part of the "Structured Charts" topic in the Structured Systems Analysis module.
GRCC Players Presents: Jump Cut
Feb. 14, 2014 GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — GRCC Players will present Jump/Cut, a story about the friendships of three young urbanites, from Feb. 28 through March 1. Neena Beber's Jump/Cut looks at three bright people, looking to make their mark on the world. Paul, portrayed by GRCC student Henry Macusse, is a hard-working filmmaker who hopes to get his big break soon. His grad student girlfriend Karen, portrayed by GRCC student Kendra Jones, longs for a life outside her thesis, and their friend Dave
Biomechatronics is a contraction of biomechanics and mechatronics. In this course the function and coordination of the human motion apparatus is the central focus, and the design of assistive devices for the support of the function of the motion apparatus. Study Goals: The student must be able to: 1. Make a Problem Analysis of a given assignment in the field of the human motion apparatus and its interaction with an assistive device ; Identify the underlying cause [pathology] of the problem as p

Lessons from Hurricane Katrina: Can We Save California's Delta?
Lessons from Hurricane Katrina: Can we save California's Delta? Raymond B. Seed, Professor of GeoEngineering, Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering The catastrophic flooding of New Orleans during hurricane Katrina was the single most costly failure of an engineered system in history. It was also a social and cultural tragedy of unprecedented peacetime proportions for the United States. After the disaster, a team of leading experts from across the country examined the engineering and
Dynamic Learning Agents and Enhanced Presence on the Grid
Human Learning on the Grid will be based on the synergies between advanced software and Human agents. These synergies will be possible to the extent that conversational protocols among Agents, human and/or artificial ones, can be adapted to the ambitious goal of dynamically generating services for human learning. In the paper we highlight how conversations may procure learning both in human and in artificial Agents. The STROBE model for communicating Agents and its current evolutions shows how
A Robot in Kindergarten
These thought are the result of work in progress, started in 1999, within the scope of the Trás-os-Montes Digital/SCETAD, project (sub-project: ICEI – Computers in Early Childhood Education Contexts). The work took place in Portuguese kindergarten rooms, with children aged 3, 4, 5 and 6. The ICEI sub-project aims to promote the use of ICT in a playful but pedagogical way, be it free or directed. This use is intended to occur within the scope of activities developed for the micro-spaces of the
A Case of Innovation
A white paper is a focused analysis often used to describe how a technology solves a problem. In this literacy activity, students write a simplified version of a white paper on an alternative electrical power generation technology. In the process, they develop their critical thinking skills and become aware of the challenge and promise of technological innovation that engineers help to make possible. This activity is geared towards fifth grade and older students and computer capabilities are req
Is That Legal? A Case of Acid Rain
The goal of this activity is to understand how techniques of persuasion (including background, supporting evidence, storytelling and the call to action) are used to develop an argument for or against a topic. Students develop an environmental case study for presentation and understand how a case study is used as an analysis tool.
Students learn basic marketing concepts and use professional marketing techniques to compose an advertisement for a hybrid vehicle. In the process, they learn the principles of comparative analysis.
