UBC Talk on Open Notebook Science and Libraries
I presented a talk about Open Notebook Science and the implications for the future of libraries for Heather Morrison's class at the School of Libraries at the University of British Columbia on April 2, 2008. We did this over Skype so the questions are not very clear in the audio.

The Art of Computer Graphics Programming: Translating Pioneer Programs
Considering the importance of the use of programming languages for teaching computational design to architects, this paper proposes the translation of computer programs from a pioneer work in this field into a more contemporary programming language. The book The Art of Computer Graphics Programming: A Structured Introduction for Architects and Designers was published in 1987 by William J. Mitchell, Robin Ligget and Thomas Kvan, and remains an important reference for architects. The original Pasc

2.6.2 (b) Using spheres

Chemists have their own convention for representing molecules and their constituent atoms. As in Figure 6, they often use circles (or spheres if they make a three-dimensional model) to represent atoms - and they often use short, straight lines between the circles to represent the bonds that join one atom to anot

4.6 Summary

  1. RNA chains play fundamentally important roles within the cell, including genetic information transfer (mRNA), components of the translation machinery (rRNA in ribosomes and tRNAs) and as regulatory small RNAs.

  2. The tertiary structure of RNA is determined by interactions that maximise base pairing. Despite instability and isolation problems, the tertiary structures of several major cellular RNAs are known.

  3. Transfer RNA struct

Where next for public health in the era of austerity?
This event was the second in a series of master class lectures jointly staged by the University of Leeds and Leeds Metropolitan University bringing together relevant senior figures and academics from across the city and surrounding region. The twenty-first century has seen a growth in political, environmental and economic insecurity in the context of global recession, population ageing and climate change. Responding to these threats involves rethinking how we work together, care for ourselves,

3.1 The helical structure of DNA

Having outlined the general principles of nucleic acid structures, we will now focus on how these principles influence the formation of specific structures found in DNA.

The helical structure of DNA arises because of the specific interactions between bases and the non-specific hydrophobic effects described earlier. Its structure is also determined through its active synthesis; that is, duplex DNA is synthesised by specialist polymerases upon a template strand. Within the helix, the two

Changes in microstructure of a shape memory alloy (CuAlNi single crystal)
Changes in microstructure of a shape memory alloy being heat treated and also mechanically deformed. A CuAlNi single crystal (2H orthorhombic phase ) is compressed (vertical axis) at room temperature, causing activation of two sequential twinning deformations. As austenite, the crystal is cube-shaped, whereas in the martensite form it is sheared. Six different sheared martensite crystals, having well - defined prism shapes (three of which appear in this video), can be created by pressing on 3 di

Summary of Section 3

  1. Watson–Crick base pairing arises due to hydrogen bonding between A and T and G and C and spatial limitations within the hydrophobic core of the helix.

  2. DNA commonly folds into the B-form helix; other forms such as Z-DNA form in vitro. A-form helices are formed primarily by duplex RNA.

  3. The twisting of DNA around its helical axis results in torsional stresses that promote the formation of high-energy alternative confo
