Classical vs. Transgenic Breeding
This video segment from FRONTLINE/NOVA: "Harvest of Fear" discusses the genetic consequences of both classical (traditional) breeding and genetic engineering of crop plants. While classical breeding combines thousands of genes between individuals of the same species, genetic engineering combines one or a few selected genes between individuals of the same -- or, in some cases, different -- species. Closed captioning included. Run time 03:11.

1.1.2 Pre-natal diagnosis

The type of genetic testing that the majority of us are most likely to come across is still pre-natal diagnosis (PND). This involves testing a fetus during pregnancy, to see whether it is likely to suffer from a number of different disorders — some genetic, some not. While recent developments allow tests for certain multifactorial genetic diseases (such as spina bifida), pre-natal diagnosis has been available since the 1960s to test for Down's syndrome.

States of Matter: Solid, Liquid, and Gas
In this program matter is discussed as anything that has mass or takes up space. Three of the recognized five states of Matter are solid, liquid and gas. (The other two are plasma and Bose-Einstein concentrates) As different forces are applied to matter, like heat, matter can change from one form to another: solid to liquid, liquid to gas, or solid to gas. Show Me Science: States of Matter: Solid, Liquid, and Gas describes what happens to matter at boiling, melting, freezing, and dew points. The

2.3 Scaling up

They may look at dozens of alleles, and involve thousands of people, but existing screening programmes have been concerned with individual genes. But the technologies now being developed will soon permit the recording of hundreds of genes at a time. So-called gene chips combine the skills of microchip designers with DNA sequence information to offer rapid, easy-to-read results for an individual covering hundreds of genetic variants. A gene chip is a thin slice of glass about the

E-Portfolio Toolkit - Booklet
This E-Portfolio Toolkit is based on experience of developing the “Year Abroad E-Portfolio”, undertaken by the School of Languages at Leeds Metropolitan University. We use an E-Portfolio to assess our students on their period abroad because we think it encourages them to fully engage with culture(s) and language of the target country and to reflect on the resulting cultural and linguistic development. As part of our project, we have also developed a set of learning activities and materials,
