It features seven sections along with a brief introduction, a Teacher's Guide, and information about the Museum's Division of Paleontology.
Wiggle -- Predicting Functionally Flexible Regions from Primary Sequence
The Wiggle series are support vector machine-based predictors that identify regions of functional flexibility using only protein sequence information. Functionally flexible regions are defined as regions that can adopt different conformational states and are assumed to be necessary for bioactivity. Many advances have been made in understanding the relationship between protein sequence and structure. This work contributes to those efforts by making strides to understand the relationship between p
Trudy Forte presents ""Drugs for Brain Tumors""

Tumour cords' growth in a vascular network
Evolutions of oxygen concentration and formation of hypoxic zones during tumor growth in the vascular network. This simulation was produced with an experimental modification to the model, where vessels are oxygen sources inside the simulation domain, cells do not switch to anaerobic metabolism in this simulation.

Harmonic Cloud Patterns on Jupiter
Regularly spaced clouds appear in Jupiter's belts, sometimes white spots and sometimes swirling waves. A polar projection of Jupiter, made by NASA from the 2000 flyby, allows accurate testing of the hypothesis that these waves form as predicted by the Harmonics Theory. It is found that expected strong harmonics 12, 24 and 72 are present.

Number for Nurses: Division
The Number for Nurses Computer Assisted Learning Package begins with a basic principles section which is followed by application to nursing practice. The basic principles section deals with addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, S.I. units and scales and gauges. In each area a variety of methods are used to enable the student to understand these principles, through interactive tutorials and consolidate learning through exercises. The aim of the division section is to help the student
