Spot-Overlay Ames Test of Potential Mutagens
This protocol represents a cost-effective modification of the Ames Test that allows students to investigate the mutagenic potential of various common substances. Potential mutagens are tested using well-characterized auxotrophic strains of Salmonella typhimurium. By analyzing the results, students determine if any of their compounds may be mutagenic. Follow-up experiments are designed to determine the dose response of these potential mutagens. Using this protocol, we have achieved reproducible r

Tocqueville's America is another project of the American Studies Programs at The University of Virginia. In this project we take up the task of re-contextualizing Alexis de Tocqueville's famous political and cultural analysis of American democracy. Our objective is, over time, to return that book -- arguably still one of the most influential works in political thought -- to its origins, to the America of 1831-32 . For it was on that very specific ground and at that very specific historical momen

Empirical Research Methods in Software Engineering
This course will explore the role of empiricism in software engineering research, and will prepare students for advanced research in SE by examining how to plan, conduct and report on empirical investigations. The course will cover all of the principal methods applicable to SE: controlled experiment, case studies, surveys, archival analysis, action research and ethnographies, and will relate these methods to relevant metatheories in the philosophy and sociology of science. The course will critic
Retailing in Leeds - Consumer Shopping preferences
Leeds is a major city in the UK and as such is a magnet for shoppers from the surrounding region. Around 1.7 to 1.9 million people are in the catchment area as shoppers in Leeds city centre. Consequently retail is an important business for Leeds. John Temperley Senior Lecturer in Marketing in the Business School and a retail specialist, explains the choices that face consumers and what their preferences are, based on research by students sponsored by Leeds city centre management. The results ar
