Prion Problem Space
Prions are relatively small proteins that display dramatically alternate conformations for similar primary structures. Abnormal conformations appear to cause fatal neurological diseases in a wide variety of mammals. Researchers are discovering the mechanisms behind these conformational changes, including differences that may lead to species barriers (or lack thereof) among exposed animals. How do these conformations differ? How do small sequence differences affect susceptibility to conformationa

Online Science-athon: How Tall Am I?
The Online Science-athon offers elementary and middle-grade students opportunities to discover the science in their daily lives. Presented as challenges, the Science-athon asks students to investigate their world in ways that are engaging and fun, easy for teachers to incorporate into their teaching, and instructive. Students participating in How Tall Am I? create a way to measure their height as accurately as possible. On Measuring Day students collect and record data and share it with other st
Discovering Information Systems An Exploratory Approach
Note: This book was written in 1999 and last updated in 2003. Since then technologies have changed so the non-conceptual and more technical parts of the book may be out of date. Why Yet Another Textbook (WYAT)? There are many excellent introductory information systems (IS) texts on the market. Why then produce our own text? Interestingly enough, when we sat down to critically review the first year Information Systems curriculum, the very last thing that we wanted was to get involved in writing
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.
Introductory Statistics: Concepts, Models, and Applications
The book, Introductory Statistics: Concepts, Models, and Applications, presented in the following pages represents over twenty years of experience in teaching the material contained therein. The high price of textbooks and a desire to customize course material for my own needs caused me to write this material. This Web text and associated exercises is a continuing project. Check back often for updates.
