The site's name emphasizes the gene both as a dynamic structure that changes through evolutionary time, but also as a dynamic concept that changes with our increasing knowledge of genome organization. The design for Dynamic Gene recalls the "str

Simulateur de comportements d'apprenants dans le cadre de jeux d'entreprise
Les jeux d'entreprises constituent une formation pertinente pour la formation initiale et continue d'ingénieurs. Ils ont l'avantage d'offrir une grande liberté d'action et d'intervention aux apprenants. Cependant, le nombre de chemins possibles étant important dans de tels jeux, il n'est pas évident de proposer du premier coup la bonne structure de jeu et de définir les paramètres optimums pour atteindre les objectifs pédagogiques. Actuellement, cette mise au point se fait grâce aux reto

How GRID could improve E-Learning in the environmental science domain
This paper will outline the requirements for an interactive e-learning system defined as part of the German research project GIMOLUS [1]. After a short overview over the Open Grid Service Architecture (OGSA) it will be shown that the capabilities of existing e-learning solutions are too limited in order to fulfil these requirements. The last part will show how a GIMOLUS system could be built using a GRID service architecture and what the benefits are in doing so.

"The Bad News From Chicago": Labor Organizer Oscar Ameringer Describes the Effect of the Haymarket B
The Haymarket bombing in 1886 marked a major turning point in the history of nineteenth-century labor. Used by capitalists as an excuse for a crackdown on labor organizations, the bombing also splintered what up had been until then the strongest labor organization in the United States--the Knights of Labor. The anti-labor reaction that followed in the wake of the bombing helped precipitate a rapid decline in membership in the Knights which was eventually supplanted by the American Federation of
