Introduction to Molecular Virology
Introductory Virology for 2nd and 3rd year courses The material consists of a series of linked pages exploring an introduction to the concept of viruses, and an exploration of their general properties. This site provides the basis of material for 7-lecture course in introductory microbiology (MCB2016F) and a 20-lecture course (MCB3024S, Defence and Disease) given to third-year students.
EMPIRE : nuclear reaction model code
EMPIRE is a modular system of nuclear reaction codes for use in the advanced modelling of nuclear reactions using various theoretical models. It comprises FORTRAN codes, input parameter libraries and an experimental data library (EXFOR/CSISRS) operated through a Graphic User Interface (GUI). EMPIRE is made available by the National Nuclear Data Center (NNDC) at Brookhaven National Laboratory, USA.

Alzheimer’s Disease: Realizing the Promise of Molecular Medicine
In 1906, when Alois Alzheimer first described the disease that bears his name, it was a rarity; life expectancy in the US was around 50 years, and few people lived long enough to develop Alzheimer’s disease (AD). But as life expectancies have risen around the world, AD has become vastly more prevalent, and it is now one of the m
Headlong into the Polanyian Dilemma: Reaction and Overreaction to Banking Sector Distress
Matthew Watson discusses how the world credit crunch which began in the summer of 2007 has been responsible for the explicit politicisation of the housing market amidst a moral panic surrounding the status of homeowner.
Case It! Case Study Learning via Simulations of Molecular Biology Techniques
Case It! is an NSF-sponsored project to promote collaborative case-based learning in biology education worldwide. This paper describes the latest version of the Case It! simulation software (DNA gel electrophoresis, Southern blotting, and PCR). Students use these open-ended molecular biology computer simulations to analyze case studies involving genetic diseases, then discuss results with their peers at other institutions via web-based "poster sessions." They also use Case It! software to gather
Courtship Reaction Chains and Mate Attraction: A Two-Part Laboratory Activity Using WOWBugs
A laboratory exercise to study insect courtship behavior using Melittobia digitata, WOWBugs.
Case It! - case-study learning integrating molecular biology computer simulations and international
For introducing a framework for collaborative case-based learning in molecular biology using interactive computer simulations and web-based "poster sessions" for students via Internet conferencing.
1.6 Signalling proteins can act as molecular switches
This unit explains the general principles of signal transduction and specifically, how even the simplest organisms can detect and respond to events in their ever-changing environment.
RVC 30 - The Cytoskeleton and Molecular Motors in Health and Disease
Professor Peter Chantler describes the protein structures that make up the skeleton of living cells and how they ingeniously combine to provide the means for movement of structures at the cellular and sub-cellular level.
Making Molecular Movies: 10,000,000,000,000 Frames per Second
Movies have transformed our perception of the world. With slow motion photography, we can see a hummingbird flap its wings, and a bullet pierce an apple. The remarkably small and extremely fast molecular world that determines how your body functions cannot be captured with even the most sophisticated movie camera today. To see chemistry in real time requires a camera capable of seeing molecules that are one
