Aptamers

Aptamers are nucleic acid molecules that have been developed to mimic the selective and tight binding of other molecules such as antibodies. In order to identify an aptamer that is capable of binding to a target molecule, a process called Selex (systematic evolution of ligands by exponential enrichment) is utilised. The strategy relies upon a combination of a selective binding assay and amplification by PCR. A ‘library’ of short single-stranded DNA oligonucleotides is synthesised <

    2.2 ‘Children in need’

    All local authorities in the UK have a duty to provide services that look after the welfare of children. This duty is underpinned by the Children Act 1989 (England and Wales), the Children (Scotland) Act 1995 and the Children (Northern Ireland) Order 1995. The term ‘children in need’ derives from such legislation.

    ‘Children in need’ are defined similarly in legislation for each nation of the UK. The Children Act 1989 (England and Wales) section 17(10), for example, defines child

    3.10 Difficulties in applying conventional bioethics to the CAM relationship

    Much of the literature in bioethics views the doctor/patient relationship as the paradigmatic example of a health care encounter. Various assumptions are made about the roles of ‘good’ doctors and ‘good’ patients, gender, dominant cultural values, patient expectations and a shared (western) understanding of health and disease. These assumptions may not be shared by many CAM practitioners or, indeed, CAM patients. Can

    Giving in the Digital World
    For charitable organizations and initiatives, the Internet provides the opportunity to reach more people in more direct and personal ways. Are they grasping this opportunity? Following on the earthquake in Haiti in January 2010, generous individuals around the world used their mobile phones to make more than $40 million in gifts to aid organisations. More than $1 billion in gifts came in the next four weeks, a large percentage of which was donated online. But the real stories of how digital tec

    3 The value of institutional science promotion events

    There are three reasons why these science promotion events are considered to be valuable.

    1. Many people think that these events can be informational, educational and enjoyable. You can meet others of a similar outlook, learn something new, spend quality time with your family, or confront a nagging fear from your schooldays that you ‘don't understand science’. In turn, this could motivate you to find out more, either as a citizen and/or as a potentia

    6.3 Anisotropies in the Universe itself

    Having subtracted the dipolar anisotropy due to the motion of the Earth relative to the 3 K radiation, we are left with radiation that is exceedingly isotropic. So, we have to ask whether there are any residual variations that would point to a departure from isotropy of the radiation itself? This is a crucial question. Although it was gratifying to have the radiation so isotropic that there could be little doubt of its cosmic origins, nevertheless a completely isotropic distribu

    How Do Tornadoes Form?
    On average, about 800 tornadoes occur in the United States each year. They can appear and disappear in moments, and key details about their formation are unknown. These factors make the research to understand and predict tornado occurrence extremely difficult. This video segment adapted from NOVA describes the challenges of studying tornadoes and shows how computer simulations are helping researchers observe what they can't possibly see in a real storm. Closed captioning included.  Run time 06:

    7.2 The public take control

    There is also good evidence which suggests that the public took control over their own health by choosing not to seek medical help, or by rejecting offers of help and treatment (Figure 10).

    1 Describing an ICT system

    In this course I shall be introducing you to some ideas about how ICT systems work. Because this course is about ICT systems, I'll be starting with a discussion about what constitutes a system. I'll go on to introduce some diagrammatic ways of representing ICT systems. Then I'll look at some examples to illustrate how they carry out certain processes, namely conveying, storing and manipulating data. You will also find out about other processes performed by ICT systems.

    Defining a process of design and learning of digital graphics by means of distance education
    This paper describes and analyses the teaching/learning approach which progressively is being established in the context of the Digital Graphics Post-Graduation Course. The method used has, basically, generated educational situations able to increase the self-learning capacity of the students; develop skills for collaborative activities to build the knowledge and overtake the limits of time and space imposed by traditional educational systems. The theoretical references adopted to draw the didac

    Celebrating 30 Years of Mises University

    It’s easy to get discouraged in the Age of Obama, a man who can say, in Castro’s Cuba, that there is not much difference between communism and capitalism. And in his warped mind, I guess it’s sort of true, since his program is a mixture. That is, it’s fascist.

    Combine his corporatism with envy, perpetual war, negative interest rates, the police state, fascist health care, total surveillance, vicious political correctness, and a host of other horrors, and you can

    2.7.4 Identities are contextual and interactional

    Different identities assume greater or less importance, and play different roles, in different contexts and settings, and in interactions with different people. Different aspects of people’s identity may come to the fore in the workplace and in the home, for example, while people might emphasise different aspects of themselves to different people (and different people may see different identities when they meet them).

    1.2 Nucleic acids: genetic, functional and structural roles in the cell

    The first role that one immediately thinks about for nucleic acids is that of an inherited genetic material, principally in the form of DNA. In some cases, the inherited genetic material is RNA instead of DNA. For example, almost 60% of all characterised viruses have RNA genomes and these are more common in plant viruses than in animal viruses. There is considerable variation in the amount of genetic material present within organisms (Author(s): The Open University
