Pollen Tube Formation and the Central Dogma of Biology
This resource is a detailed manual of protocols and instructional information for carrying out an undergraduate laboratory exercise in plant biology, including student outlines and instructors notes.
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.
A tadpole is what hatches out of the egg that was laid by the adult frog. It lives in water and swims using its tail. It has gills and breathes underwater.
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

Introduction to Innovation Management
The course is designed to provide students with a basic understanding of how innovative activities of a firm are managed. Broadly defined, innovation is a new product, process, or idea that is available for adoption, use, or consumption. Innovation management deals with generating and screening new product/process ideas or concepts, transforming these ideas or concepts into products, processes, or services that are useful for one or more target markets, and developing strategies and tactics that

What is a Profile?
Using TIG profiles as an entry point, this activity explores a broader theme of "profiling" to enable students to examine how they present themselves, as well as cultural perceptions and biases within themselves, their peers, and their community. Students will read TIG profiles and Member Stories, with the objective of better understanding others' perspectives to critically reflect and write about their own identity.
Nature of Geographic Information
This course will orient you to the properties of geographic data and the practice of distance learning. Some of the overall goals are to: 1) Promote understanding of the geopgraphic information science and technology (GIS&T) enterprise and 2) Promote geographic information literacy - the ability to identify the kind(s) of geographic information needed for a particular task; to determine whether needed data are available; to acquire and assess the quality of the data if available, or specify the
"Introduction to Radar Systems, Spring 2007"
"This set of 10 lectures (about 11+ hours in duration) was excerpted from a three-day course developed at MIT Lincoln Laboratory to provide an understanding of radar systems concepts and technologies to military officers and DoD civilians involved in radar systems development, acquisition, and related fields. That three-day program consists of a mixture of lectures, demonstrations, laboratory sessions, and tours. Online Publication"
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.
Reference Resources: Being a Good Detective
Students become familiar with a variety of reference resources when seeking information. These sources include atlases, almanacs, dictionaries, encyclopedias, thesauri, online search engines for the Internet, and online library card catalogs.
