Plants That Aren't Plants: Mosses and Lichens
Mosses and lichens are not given much attention in introductory biology laboratory courses, in part because instructors lack skills necessary to cover the topic-namely, moss leaf cross sectioning and lichen chemical spot tests. Acquiring confidence in just these two techniques, as well as familiarity with basic terminology, lays a foundation for further investigation.

Sleeping Beauty Invades Rat's Genome
Knockouts are not just for Mice anymore. Aron Geurts and Howard Jacob from the Medical College of Wisconsin talk about their plans for creating transgenic rats using the Sleeping beauty transposon. Coming out of work pioneered by Colin Bishop's lab, Geurts and Jacob describe how the Sleeping Beauty system can be used to make transgenic rats and their plans to make the phenotype data from these rats available via the MCW PGA website (http://pga.mcw.edu) and the strains themselves accessible via a
Using composite materials to replace bone
In this podcast, Professor Chris Rudd, Dean of the faculty of Engineering at the University of Nottingham, describes his work with composite materials in the car industry and how it can be applied to the field of medicine. Traditionally, patients who have lost bone in an accident or have had bone removed due to cancer have had to endure two very long and very painful operations.

Students generally do not know the complexity that goes into building and programming a robotic arm. In actuality, creating such an arm comes from a design that involves mechanical, electrical, and computer science engineers. This activity allows students to control a robotic arm from both a machine's and a computer science engineer's perspective by letting them perform a simple task with a few entertaining instructions and constraints.
