Molecular Classification - Prof. Chris Man (Part 1)
Recent advances in genomic and proteomic technologies have revolutionized our way of classifying diseases. These high-throughput technologies allow the development of powerful and multivariate classifiers to distinguish different diseases or tumors based on their molecular profiles. Molecular classification provides a new way to distinguish histologically similar but molecularly different types of tumors, and hence improves tumor diagnosis and prognosis. In this course, we introduce major concep
Economic History & History of Thought
The factories that changed the world, 1.) the mule-powered spinning mill (Britain in the 1820s), 2.) from the American system to the Ford system (1900s), and 3.) Toyota Production System (Lean manufacturing), are contrasted and the progression of production systems of the 19th and 20th centuries are arranged in order.
Modern proteomes contain putative imprints of ancient shifts in trace metal geochemistry
Because of the rise in atmospheric oxygen 2.3 billion years ago (Gya) and the subsequent changes in oceanic redox state over the last 2.3–1 Gya, trace metal bioavailability in marine environments has changed dramatically. Although theorized to have influenced the biological usage of metals leaving discernable genomic signals, a thorough and quantitative test of this hypothesis has been lacking. Using structural bioinformatics and whole-genome sequences, the Fe-, Zn-, Mn-, and Co-binding metall
Strong shaking in Los Angeles expected from southern San Andreas earthquake
The southernmost San Andreas fault has a high probability of rupturing in a large (greater than magnitude 7.5) earthquake sometime during the next few decades. New simulations show that the chain of sedimentary basins between San Bernardino and downtown Los Angeles form an effective waveguide that channels Love waves along the southern edge of the San Bernardino and San Gabriel Mountains. Earthquake scenarios with northward rupture, in which the guided wave is efficiently excited, produce unusua

NASA KSNN What do animals need to live?
There are many different habitats on the Earth. These vary in the landforms, sources of water, and climate conditions. Plants and animals are specially adapted to live in their habitats. Animals suited to live in the desert (very dry, either hot or cold) would have a difficult time living in the tropical rain forest (warm and very wet). Grades K-2
An analysis or style: How can I analyse the figures of speech used in a literary text
At the end of this lesson the student will be able to: distinguish figures of speech in literary text extracts and assess their impact when they are read aloud.
Aan het einde van deze les kunnen cursisten een conversatie voeren die in overeenstemming is met de regels van de etiquette.

Metamorphosis: Stories of Change
The goal of this activity is for students to learn how to tell a story in order to make a complex topic (such as global warming or ozone holes) easier for a reader to grasp. Students realize that the narrative impulse underlies even scientific and technical writing and gain a better understanding of the role of myth as a "science" of imagination that helps us to gain insight into human motivation.
The field of study is extremely broad and exciting and is not confined just to the aerospace industry. Besides acquiring the specialist know-how you will also learn to work in teams, to make compromises, to search for solutions to complex problems and to communicate effectively. The degree programme in Aerospace Engineering is the only one at TU Delft to offer a comlete English-language Bachelor's degree programme. In the first two years all students follow the same curriculum. In order to hel
