The Quest for the Perfect Tomato
This fun Web site is part of OLogy, where kids can collect virtual trading cards and create projects with them. Here, they learn about the many ecosystems in the ocean. The site opens by telling kids that people have learned to change the food we eat. The first comic strip looks at a farmer who works to produce a larger, redder, tastier tomato. The second comic strip tells kids about genetic modification and imagines a scientist putting the flounder's "anti-freeze" gene inside the DNA of a tomat
3.3.3 Mechanical methods of contraception
This unit looks at the human being in the context of an individual life cycle, examining some of the processes that contribute to the formation of a new person. After a brief discussion of historical ideas about human conception, and about contraception to the present day, we look at the cells involved in the conception and development of a new individual. Gamete production (that is, production of mature cells able to unite with another in sexual reproduction) in both men and women is introduced
Cerebellar Degeneration - Station and Gait Exam - Gait Sub-exam - Patient 17
This 62-year-old white male has had neurological problems dating back to 1990. His initial symptoms consisted of blurred vision and incoordination. When he turns his head to read road signs, his vision is distorted. Gait disturbances have progressed to the point that he is now extremely unsteady. He reels from side-to-side and hangs onto walls for balance. There has been progressive worsening in the dexterity of his hands. Writing, buttoning, holding equipment and manipulating small objects hav
Monitor and evaluate industrial relations
Monitoring and evaluation is the cornerstone to effective industrial relations within an organisation.
Conduct exit interviews
It is essential that the exit interview be well-planned, conducted properly and that extensive notes are taken. This will ensure that all areas are covered for the exiting employee and that the likelihood for a dispute later on is severely diminished. Information gathered in the exit interview can also be used as feedback on how the organisation can improve its processes and procedures. This resource demonstrates how to plan and conduct an exit interview and how feedback
Conduct a job evaluation
Job evaluation is a logical process. Most systems work by giving a weighting to key factors in a job that affect how much someone is paid. We call these 'compensable factors'. One approach is to have a range of points that you choose from, as you compare your 'real' job factors against a model. You'll probably have heard of this as the 'points' system.
Develop performance feedback plans
Performance feedback has the potential to advance people beyond their current level of performance and also has the potential to remedy and halt unacceptable performance, if necessary.
Provide appropriate information - Communicate with other people
An introduction to communication skills required by lab technicians working in scientific and medical testing laboratories. Covers the provision of relevant information in a timely manner including telephone communication, confidentiality issues, appropriate responses and documentation.
Relations with families and communities
Learn about communicating with the families of the children in a childcare centre, and which staff are qualified to discuss issues, concerns and queries about a child with a family member.
Checkpoints - Cell Biology
This is an introductory survey of cell and developmental biology. The assembly of supramolecular structures; membrane structure and function; the cell surface; cytoplasmic membranes; the cytoskeleton and cell motility; the eukaryotic genome, chromatin, and gene expression; the cell cycle; organelle biogenesis, differentiation, and morphogenesis.
Experimental Evaluation of Community Structure In Aquatic Ecosystems
A laboratory exercise to introduce a number of models of aquatic ecosystem community structure and their primary assumptions, analysis collected samples and make predication generated from each model
The Ethics of Undertaking Research in Other Countries
This paper considers when it is ethical for scientists to do research abroad that is banned at home. The handout, Skene's Barometer, is available at http://www.practicalethics.ox.ac.uk/Events/StX_seminar/Skenes_Barometer.pdf

Using Microcomputer-Based Physiology Experiments in Investigative Labs in Introductory Biology
This resource is a detailed report on the use of computer-based laboratory experiments in undergraduate physiology courses. It includes general course overviews, recommended laboratory exercises, student and instructor opinions of new teaching strategies, and evaluation of the efficacy of the teaching strategies presented.
Some animals can live in hollowed out trees, and this snake is one of them. Owls and squirrels can also be found living in tree holes.
This animation (start by clicking on image) demonstrates protein translation in the context of a ribosome. One tRNA at a time is grabbed, to incorporate each amino acid into the growing polypeptide. Amino acids are depicted as spheres, RNAs as lines, and ribosomal subunits as ovals.
Engineering Your Own Spectrograph
Students use simple materials to design an open spectrograph so they can calculate the angle light is bent when it passes through a holographic diffraction grating. A holographic diffraction grating acts like a prism, showing the visual components of light. After finding the desired angles, students use what they have learned to design their own spectrograph enclosure.
