Using ancient DNA to study climate change, mass extinctions, and human evolution
Ancient DNA provides a unique means to watch evolution occurring in real time. By tracking genetic changes in ancient populations we can examine the effects of major climatic changes on animal and plant populations from around the world through the last 100,000 years
22/2: New Study Reveals Long Delays and Variability are Losing the UK Research and Jobs
Significant new research from Warwick Business School and Queen Mary, University of London, warns that delays and variability in the approvals process for clinical research could be causing pharmaceutical companies to look outside the UK and risks the country losing some of its most experienced researchers.

e-infrastructure case study - Archaeology
The eIUS project highlights the successful use of e-Infrastructure, in this case by archaeologists at University of Reading, who use a combination of online database, digital pens and visualisation software to analyse a Roman settlement in Silchester. The e-Infrastructure Use Cases and Service Usage Models (eIUS) Project is releasing short videos highlighting how advanced information technology (IT) is being used in academic research. Disciplines covered include archaeology, bioinformatics, mate

Demystifying Hardy-Weinberg: Using Cellulose Acetate Electrophoresis of the Lap Locus to Study Popul
A laboratory exercise to use look at population genetics using seedlings from several population of a perennial herb, cellulose acetate protein electrophoresis and the Hardy-Weinberg Equilibrium Theory.
An Experimental System to Study Phagocytosis
A laboratory exercise using simple technique of feeding ink to protozoan, Tetrahymena, to observe and quantitate phagocytosis in the protozoan. It also introduces students to the microscope and inquiry-based laboratory investigations
A Study of Gene Linkage and Mapping Using Tetrad Analysis in the Fungus Sordaria fimicola
This laboratory focuses on some aspects of spore color determination in the fungus Sordaria fimicola. Tetrad analysis of asci from a cross between strains mutant for two spore color genes is used to determine if the genes are linked and to map the location of each gene relative to the centromere. This laboratory is logistically simple and inexpensive, the data are relatively easy to collect, and the analysis facilitates a good understanding of meiosis and Mendel's principles of inheritance.

A Quantitative Study of Litter and Soil Invertebrates Utilizing the Berlese Funnel
This exercise is meant to familiarize students with invertebrates that inhabit litter and soil and to help them appreciate the importance of these organisms in the environment.
A Quantitative Enzyme Study Using Simple Equipment
This resource consists of a simple laboratory exercise including detailed protocols, outlines and background information for students, and instructors notes.
A Field Study of the Ant Trail Phenomenon
In this exercise, students place food at various distances from an ant hill or nest. Ants are then observes as they find the bait and lead other ants to it. At the completion of the exercise, students construct a graph which shows the establishment of trails, recruitment of workers, and depletion of the bait.
A Field Study of Interspecific Relationships
This exercise can be used to study population ecology, food webs and trophic levels. It is meant to give students a better understanding of the interrelatedness of organisms in a community by studying several common local relationships.
