Small Regulatory RNAs May Sharpen Spatial Expression Patterns
The precise establishment of gene expression patterns is a crucial step in development. Formation of a sharp boundary between high and low spatial expression domains requires a genetic mechanism that exhibits sensitivity, yet is robust to fluctuations, a demand that may not be easily achieved by morphogens alone. Recently, it has been demonstrated that small RNAs (and, in particular, microRNAs) play many roles in embryonic development. Whereas some RNAs are essential for embryogenesis, others ar

ScienceCasts: Don't Let This Happen to Your Planet
Life as we know it doesn't thrive on planets without ozone layers. A new instrument slated for launch to the ISS will monitor Earth's protective ozone shell with greater depth and precision than ever before. (04:18)
The Formation of the Solar System
Seems to me Mr. Bighead is as much an actor as he is a scientist in this animated video. Here he plays two roles in which he debates with himself how our solar system was formed. You will learn about the nebular theory and planetesimal theory of formation.

This is a good teaching resource for a thematic unit on community helpers. It would also work well at the beginning of the school year when students are learning procedures for special classes. Elementary students will enjoy this video (1:02).
Projeto Design Condensado: Defini??o de ?Modelo Sociocultural? para Sistemas de Visualiza??o Din?mic
The ?Condensed Design Project? aims to discuss and reflect on how the definition of an ?activity inducer?, by describing and characterizing ?social-cultural models?, can be used in the development of dynamic data visualization systems. The aim is to discuss and try to understand how the profile of the ?activity inducer?, routines, scenario and context impact the navigation, interaction, research and learning processes in design history. Thus, the knowledge building process is strictly conditione
