Fulfilling the Promise of Crop Biotechnology
Roger Beachy is the founding president of the non-profit Donald Danforth Plant Science Center in Saint Louis, Missouri. Beachy pioneered the development of virus-resistant plants through biotechnology; his early research led to the development of the world's first genetically modified food crop, a virus-resistant tomato. His laboratory conducts basic research on plant biology, and uses recombinant DNA-based technologies to improve crop plants like rice and sweet potato that are grown in developi
At War over Biotech Crops in Oregon
After many years practicing law, Esther McGinnis is now a researcher in Applied Plant Sciences at the University of Minnesota, specializing in biotechnology, law, and values. McGinnis will explain how Oregon's beet farmers came to be at the center of a national lawsuit, and examine how to protect the rights of both conventional and organic growers. She'll also summarize research comparing the environmental impacts of growing engineered and non-engineered sugar beets. Outreach in Biotechnology

Structural Mechanics II and Exercises
After showing how to use "conjugate simultaneous linear equation" to express both "equilibrium equation" and "transformation equation" of the mechanics of truss structure as well as using an identity equation which is just as simple as linear algebra, we are going to explain how to prove the law of virtual work, and also explain the significance of it through examples.
What is Evidence Based Practice?
This RLO introduces the concept of evidence based practice and explains, in outline, how evidence based practice is done.
