Prediction of Chemical and Biological Properties of Organic Compounds from Molecular Structure
This website is a PDF file of 32 slides and accompanying notes that describe the process of determining quantitative structure activity relationships. The slides focus on the ADAPT software, but are generally useful to anyone interested in QSAR, and discuss the details of Structure Entry and Molecular Modeling, Descriptor Generation, Feature Selection, Model construction, and Model Validation.
Quantitative Chemical Analysis, 6e
This is a site with material related to Dan Harris\' textbook. It is not as general as some sites but the material is of high pedagogical value. Short tutorial sections are available for many topics with extensive web linkages. \"Living\" graphs and Excel files illustrate important material such as pH fractional composition and statistical analysis. Students can take practice quizzes on material from the text. Full Powerpoint slideshows include nearly all of the figures contained in the tex
This is a website by Syracuse Research Corporation. It contains numerous reference information including a link to the PBT profiler that SRC created for the U.S. EPA - this model predicts risk related data (physical/chemical properties, bioconcentrations, environmental fate, carcinogenicity and toxicity). There is also a link to a childhood lead risk assessment model, environmental fate database, and a physical properties database (> 25,000 chemicals). All the latter requires is a CAS number b
Short Tandem Repeat DNA Internet DataBase
This website contains comprehensive information relating to forensic DNA analysis. It has material from introductory to advanced level on forensic DNA technology. Provides general information on DNA markers that are of interest to human identification. Site contains both introductory to in-depth discussions of short tandem repeats (STRs) and other DNA markers currently used by the forensic community. Powerpoint and PDF presentations on STR training material are available and can be readily do
This link contains a set of lecture notes with illustrations from the potentiometry section of CEM 333, Instrumental Analysis at Michigan State University. Topics include potentiometric electrodes and their underlying theory, along with useful hints in their application.
What is Mass Spectrometry?
This site is a very thorough page by page description about what mass spectometry is and how it is used. It has many useful figures and references to other materials. The site is well organized and easy to use.
Principal Components Analysis Tutorial
This site provides a clear introduction to the principle component analysis (PCA) without overwhelming the student. The tutorial includes a brief introduction and an explanation of the mathematics of PCA.
ICESat First Light Release: A Continuous View of Clouds
The GLAS laser system on ICESat is making unique measurements of the heights of clouds and their global distribution. In addition, ICESat can see the distributions of aerosols from sources such as dust storms and forest fires. This animation shows the distribution of cloud layers as seen from the birds-eye perspective of the ICESat spacecraft.
