Bioinformatics and Computational Biology Solutions Using R and Bioconductor
Covers the basics of R software and the key capabilities of the Bioconductor project (a widely used open source and open development software project for the analysis and comprehension of data arising from high-throughput experimentation in genomics and molecular biology and rooted in the open source statistical computing environment R), including importation and preprocessing of high-throughput data from microarrays and other platforms. Also introduces statistical concepts and tools necessary t
Problem Solving for Immunization Programs
Countries around the world - even those at war - are collaborating to ensure that children under the age of five don't die from diseases for which vaccines are available. In the past twenty years, global vaccine coverage has surpassed eighty percent, and a second disease, polio, is nearly eradicated. In the United States, coverage rates are even higher, and vaccine-preventable diseases are now rare. Never have so many resources been focused on immunization - yet problems remain. Additional, high
Analog Integrated Circuit Design
An introductory course in analog circuit synthesis for microelectronic designers. Topics include: Review of analog design basics; linear and non-linear analog building blocks: harmonic oscillators, (static and dynamic) translinear circuits, wideband amplifiers, filters; physical layout for robust analog circuits; design of voltage sources ranging from simple voltage dividers to high-performance bandgaps, and current source implementations from a single resistor to high-quality references based o
Basics of the Coordinate Plane
This selection provides an introduction to the basics of the coordinate plane. An interactive board is used to show the x and y axis, quadrants, and an ordered pair. A tip is also provided to help students learn the number of each quadrant. ( 1:46)
The Senses: Tasting - by StudyJams
The tongue has thousands of taste receptors that respond to chemicals in the food you eat. Nerves in your tongue and nose send signals on to your brain, allowing you to taste the food you eat. Learn more about your sense of taste with this cartoon animation from StudyJams. A short, self-checking quiz is also included with this link.
Kemp's Ridley Turtle Hatchlings Emerging From Nest
This short video gives excellent real life footage of baby Ridley Turtles hatching and emerging from their nest in the sand. Kemp’s ridley turtle is the most severely endangered marine turtle in the world; in the 1980s only a few hundred females were observed nesting, although the population is now showing signs of recovery. It is also one of the smallest turtles, with adults weighing less than 45 kilograms. This is a great resource to help build background knowledge and to help make
Going Deeper with Project Roslyn: Exposing the C# and VB compiler’s code analysis Until now, the VB and C# compilers have been used as black boxes. You put text in, and you get out a binary file. In our long-lead project, codename "Roslyn," we are changing that dynamic by building an API that exposes our compilers' analysis engines. In this session, we'll go in-depth in exploring the Roslyn project and the powerful set of APIs for building "code aware" tools and extensions. In this information-packed session, we'll explore six major Ro
