Advanced semiconductor devices as a new source of energy for the 21st century, which deliver electricity directly from sunlight. The suitable semiconductor materials, device physics, and fabrication technologies for solar cells are presented. The guidelines for design of a complete solar cell system for household application are explained. The cost aspects, market development, and the application areas of solar cells are presented.
Blood and Thunder Part 1
Dr Lynn Fotheringham offers a unique insight into the film '300' and the reality behind the epic and bloody Spartan battles.

Blood and Thunder Part 2
Dr Lynn Fotheringham looks at the link between Spartan warriors in the film '300' and modern super heroes, or 'men in tights' as artist Frank Miller prefers!

Histology: Study of Cells, Tissues and Organs
This course presents the microscopic structure of cells, tissues, and organs, with emphasis on the correlation of structure and function. Vignettes of clinical and pathologic significance are also presented.
Nutrients Involved in Blood Health and Immunity
Description not set
Zebra fish blood stream to heart
Arteries, veins and the heart are the organs that make up the circulatory system, an organ system. Organs are made up of several types of tissues.
Computational image analysis: from cells to tissues - Prof. Ioannis Kakadiaris
Principles of image analysis. Segmentation, edge detection, and feature extraction. Imaging tissue section images obtained by H&E staining, immuno-histochemistry, and multi-color FISH. Part of the Computer-Aided Discovery Methods course taught at Baylor College of Medicine.
Greatest Discoveries: William Harvey: Blood Flow Theory
Part of Discovery's series "Greatest Discoveries in Medicine". William William Harvey discovers how blood is actually circulated. Run time 02:43.
Stem Cells Breakthrough
In this video segment adapted from NOVA scienceNOW, follow the scientific process that led to a revolutionary method for creating stem cells without the use of human embryos.
Blood Vessels Help Tumors Grow
In this video segment, adapted from NOVA, Dr. Judah Folkman uses the scientific method to discover how cancer cells induce the formation of new blood vessels, which in turn nourish those cancer cells.
Blood Cell Basics
Students will make a proportional model of blood out of red gelatin, a plastic bag, and rice. They will learn about the different components that make up blood and will investigate what happens when the arteries and veins experience buildup from cholesterol. They will then work in pairs to brainstorm ways to clean our clogged arteries.

Study Goals: Students learn about renewable energy sources, name
Medicine Games: Blood Typing
Play a game and find out about a Nobel Prize awarded discovery or work! In this game you have to blood type each patient and give them a blood transfusion. Are you able to do that? If not, maybe you should read the introduction to blood typing before you start, otherwise you will put the patients' lives in danger!
Sister Chromatid Differentiation and Exchange in Chinese Hamster Ovary Cells in Culture
This laboratory exercise is designed to illustrate the semi-conservative mode of DNA duplication through the expression of sister chromatid differentiation (SCD), the single-stranded nature of the eukaryotic chromosome organization, and the mutagenic effects of certain chemical or physical agents through induced sister chromatid exchange (SCE). Through individual work and/or a group project, students will learn the basic cell culturing and cytogenetic techniques for chromosome studies, especiall
Structural materials in cells
Where does the structure of our body come from? This unit looks at the structure of cells and how proteins are used by both animals and plants to create a framework for cellular growth. You will also learn how a material as fine as spider silk can exceed the strength of steel.
Using Human Blood, Saliva, and Dental Caries in the Biology Teaching Laboratory
Laboratory exercises using saliva, urine, and blood were developed because they met specific, desirable learning objectives. Moreover, because they use the student's own body, they had the advantage of high student interest. Since the method of transmission of Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) was uncovered, questions have arisen about the safety of using blood and other body fluids in teaching. Disinfection and safety procedures that minimize the risk of transmitting diseases in the laboratory
National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institutes' Diseases and Conditions Index
This site provides information about heart, lung, and blood diseases and sleep disorders. Learn how the heart works. Find out about aneurysms, angioplasty, electrocardiograms, heart attacks, high blood pressure, asthma, cystic fibrosis, sickle cell anemia, insomnia, narcolepsy, and more.
Stem Cells: Programming and Personalized Medicine
After years of relentless lab work, rising and falling expectations, and the challenge of a sometimes hostile public, Rudolf Jaenisch says, “The scenario that looked like a fantasy … has come closer to reality. We can study complex human diseases in a Petri dish and potentially contribute to therapy.” In this l
Magnifying and Observing Cells
Students will learn that all organisims are composed of cells, the building-blocks of life. Most cells are microscopic and must be magnified to be observed. Students will make slides of cells from an onion skin and Elodea (American or Canadian waterwee) to observe under a microscope.
From the structure and function of organelles to communication on a molecular level, these materials explore the inner-most workings of cells in a dynamic and realistic way. Integrate the Print-and-Go activities below with the online activities available in the Amazing Cells section on Learn.Genetics to provide a good picture of what a cell does during its "resting phase.
