What is the genome made of?
Genomes are composed of DNA, and a knowledge of the structure of DNA is essential to understand how it can function as hereditary material. DNA is remarkable, breathtakingly simple in its structure yet capable of directing all the living processes in a cell, the production of new cells and the development of a fertilized egg to an individual adult. DNA has three key properties: it is relatively stable; its structure suggests an obvious way in which the molecule can be duplicated, or replicated;

A celebration and critical evaluation of the work of Mark Philp: Roundtable
Speakers from this day event join in discussion with Mark Philp himself about some of the issues raised throughout the day. This discussion is taken from 'A celebration and critical evaluation of the work of Mark Philp'. Mark Philp was our founding Head of Department (2000-2005) and Tutorial Fellow at Oriel College (1983-2013). He is now, since 2013, Professor of History at the University of Warwick. His work in the fields of political thought and political theory are notable for their interdis

5.3.3 Phosphorylation of proteins as a means of regulating activity
In this unit we explore how proteins are the 'doers' of the cell. They are huge in number and variety and diverse in structure and function, serving both the structural building blocks and the functional machinery of the cell. Just about every process in every cell requires specific proteins. The basic principles of protein structure and function which are reviewed in this unit are crucial to understanding how proteins perform their various roles.

Pharmacokinetic Study of Carbidopa
This dataset comes from a study of 12 healthy males randomly assigned to a three-period crossover design, in which were given one of 3 doses of a drug. Blood samples were collected at specified time intervals, and data on plasma levels were collected. Questions from this study refer to the relationship between dosage and plasma levels. A text file version of the data is found in the relation link.
