Contains a PDF version of lecture slides for a construction course on mechanical and plumbing systems. Also contains in-class exercises used in the course.
This activity has students create a Cartesian diver, which will act in some ways like a submarine. Students will adjust the amount of air and water in an inverted test tube (the "diver") so that it at first barely floats in a water-filled bottle. Then, they will squeeze the closed bottle to create higher water pressure, causing the diver to sink. Releasing the bottle allows the diver to float again. Written instructions, a list of materials, and illustrations are included.
This chapter details cell-cell communication highlighting studies performed in the model organism Dictyostelium discoideum. Topics covered include signaling molecules, cell surface receptors, and subversion of host cell signaling by pathogens.
Technologies have profoundly transform the financial markets and in turn present new challenge to the financial education. For instance, as financial markets become more complex and generate more information, it also becomes more and more challenging for market participants to digest and manage the information overload. Upon completion of the course the students will develop a toolkit and will be conversant in current issues related to financial risk management including the dynamic market changes, new trends in financial analysis and a historical perspective on financial risk management.
This book was created for upper division microbiology students studying virology. It will describe the molecular biology and major diseases of virus families that cause significant disease in animals and humans. This book is by no means meant to be exhaustive. In fact, because virology can be so overwhelming, the author has tried to keep the book as simple as possible, while still giving the reader a solid understanding of the molecular mechanisms of viral replication and pathogenesis.
