2.1 Crown gall disease: genetic engineering in nature

A. tumefaciens causes crown gall disease in a wide range of dicotyledonous plants. (Dicotyledonous plants, are also known as dicots, have broad leaves with branching veins. An example would be a broad leaved tree like an oak. Narrow leaved plants with parallel grains such as grasses are known as monocotyledonous plant or monocots.) The infection normally occurs at the site of a wound in the plant. The disease gains its name from the large tumour-like swellings, or galls, that oc

The global energy challenge
A stable and sustainable energy supply is one of the major issues of this Century. World-energy demand is expected to increase by about 70% in the coming 20 years, while the production of petroleum   - our main source of energy - is likely to peak in this period. The combination of rising demand and declining production of conventional oil raises the question: What is the plan? In the absence of a plan for a sustainable energy supply, coal and non-conventional oil are likely to become the m

1 History of health and safety

The discipline of health and safety is relatively modern, only developing in the last century. However, throughout the ages people have voiced their concerns about people being exposed to harmful substances. Hippocrates mentions in the 4th century BC that lead miners and workers tended to suffer from diseases. The phrase ‘mad as a hatter’ was coined because mercury used in the hat industry caused mental illness. In 1775 Pott reported that chimney s

The evidence for endocrine disruption in wildlife

During the 1970s and 1980s, biologists found alligators in Florida with reduced penis size and low fertility. About the same time Western gulls in the USA were found with abnormal mating behaviour and reproductive organs. These anomalies were linked to high levels of PCBs (polychlorinated biphenyls), DDT and dioxin in the local environment. Around the same time, reproductive abnormalities were found in fish living in British rivers close to sewage outfalls. Such findings stimulated ecotoxicol

Exploring mathematics: a powerful tool
How can mathematics help us to understand the world around us? The tracks on this album take us to Antarctica, Hong Kong and New Zealand to find out how mathematicians work with scientists and biologists to create mathematical models, and how collaborations like these can help decipher and predict a range of natural phenomena. We learn how the 17th Century saw the birth of one of the most important mathematical tools - calculus, and modern mathematicians examine the contribution of its three inv
