Environmental Landfill Management
Lesson objectives: Students will be able to identify what a pollutant is and its affects on the environment. The students will demonstrate knowledge of the vocabulary used in environmental management by the DOE and other federal agencies. The students will attain a basic understanding of waste problems within our environment and the fundamental concepts of the laws of nature, science, physics, and engineering. Students will construct and operate a small-scale leach-bed barrier system.

Quantum Transport: Atom to Transistor
The development of "nanotechnology" has made it possible to engineer materials and devices on a length scale as small as several nanometers (atomic distances are ~ 0.1 nm). The properties of such "nanostructures" cannot be described in terms of macroscopic parameters like mobility and diffusion coefficient and a microscopic or atomistic viewpoint is called for. The purpose of this course is to convey the conceptual framework that underlies this microscopic theory of matter which developed in cou

Blue Plants: Transgenic Plants with the GUS Reporter Gene
An investigative laboratory developed for the introductory biology curriculum using transgenic plants is presented in this chapter. The transgenic Arabidopsis plants we use contain the GUS reporter gene under the control of the cor15a gene promoter, which responds to cold stress. Following induction by cold or other environmental signals, the gusA gene will respond by producing the enzyme beta-glucuronidase (GUS). When plant tissue is incubated with the chromogenic substrate X-gluc, those tissue

Heterogeneity of photosystem II as it occurs in domain specific regions of the thylakoid membrane of
Thylakoid membrane fractions were prepared from specific regions of thylakoid membranes of spinach (Spinacia oleracea). These fractions, which include grana (83), stroma (T3), grana core (8S), margins (Ma) and purified stroma (Y100) were prepared using a non-detergent method including a mild sonication and aqueous two-phase partitioning. The significance of PSlla and PSII~ centres have been described extensively in the literature. Previous work has characterized two types of PSII centres which a
