CPU vs GPU: Protein Folding Simulation
This simulation shows a protein folding simulation of TRPCage (an artificially designed protein) running in implicit solvent. The simulation shows a single Intel E5462 2.80GHz CPU versus an NVIDIA C1060 GPU.

Folding pathway of the B1 domain of protein G explored by a multiscale modeling
The understanding of the folding mechanisms of single domain proteins is an essential step in the understanding of protein folding in general. Recently, we developed a mesoscopic CABS protein model which was successfully applied in protein structure prediction, studies of protein thermodynamics and modeling of protein complexes. In the present research this model is employed in a detailed characterization of the folding process of a simple globular protein, the B1 domain of IgG-binding protein G
Nuclear Power Explained : Climate of Hope : Part 1
This partly-animated documentary takes viewers on a tour through the science of climate change, the nuclear fuel chain, and the remarkable energy revolution that is under way. Some of the images may be disturbing to younger viewers. (09:16)
Institucions, empreses i entitats culturals
Aquesta assignatura proposa una primera aproximació a la gestió de la cultura. S'inicia en un primer mòdul contextualitzador sobre la cultura la gestió i les polítiques culturals. Seguidament es passa a fer una mirada sobre els diferents agents que intervenen en la gestió de la cultura. I s'analitza el sector privat, el sector públic i el tercer sector, i com aquest intervenen en la gestió de entitats, institucions i empres es culturals. L'assignatura acaba amb una reflexió sobre el nou
Data Analysis and Probability
Education in a free society must prepare citizens to make informed choices in all areas of their lives. They must be able to grasp the information being presented, analyze it, and make reasoned decisions. To accomplish these goals, students learn to collect, organize, and display relevant data to answer questions that can be addressed with data; use appropriate statistical methods and predictions that are based on data; develop and evaluate inferences and predictions that are based on data; and
Dr. Skateboard's Action Science - Newton's Laws
Dr. Skateboard's Action Science is designed to incorporate classroom activities that focus on concepts in physical science along with action sports, including skateboarding and Bicycle Motocross (BMX). Dr. Robertson acts as both the narrator and a performer in the series, which also includes top extreme athletes in BMX and skateboarding. These athletes perform high flying maneuvers that demonstrate physical science concepts, such as the relationships between velocity and acceleration.

Inmigración y Drogodependencias (2009)
La migración es una cuestión social relativamente novedosa que constituye un campo de estudio que debe abarcar el ámbito interdisciplinar y multidisciplinar, y que plantea nuevos desafíos para la inverstigación desde las instituciones universitarias.
El tema de la drogodependencia ha sido ampliamente trabajado desde el ámbito académico; si embargo el fenómenos de las migraciones ha estimulado nuevos retos a los que el investigador debe acercarse con cautela y teniendo en cuenta las dife

1 Children's rights: general issues
The audio file in this unit considers the general issues of children's rights, and the possibilities and implications of imagining children as citizens. Within the discussion, ideas about childhood and children's needs are explored. Although the programme focuses specifically on children it is possible to link to the wider issue of social construction of difference and power. Some examples are given in these notes.
This audio file was recorded in 1998 and related to a TV programme on ch
Christians and the Holocaust: Get involved today
Yad Vashem is so much more than a Holocaust Memorial. It is an educational institute that seeks to educate about the Holocaust and anti-Semitism and related themes. Holocaust was the murder of 6 million Jews by Nazis and their collaborators. Many factors contributed to the mass murder including centuries of Christian anti-Semitism in Europe. Today Yad Vashem reaches out to Christians worldwide through educational programs and invites them to join the Christian Friends of Yad Vashem.
