A Love-Hate Relationship: Cholesterol in Health and Disease - MIT In this class, we will examine cholesterol's role in the cell and in the body as a whole, from its function as a structural component of the membrane to its function in signaling. We will discuss mechanisms of cholesterol sensing, mechanisms of feedback regulation in cells, cholesterol in the brain, cholesterol in the circulation, 'good cholesterol' and 'bad cholesterol,' cholesterol-related human disorders, and the drugs that deal with some of these disorders.

That’s because the book was designed to be digital-only. Students will pay not for a printed edition at a bookstore, but for permanent access on the Internet ($49). And when they open the book on their laptops, tablets and smartphones, they will find other differences, too.
Push, don't pull your eLearners - removing barriers to learning | Bioscience eLearning | Learn Science at ScitableIn the context of eLearning, to me, this is a 'no-brainer' and I find it alarming, disappointing, and depressing, how often people don't get it. I think the same holds true in eLearning. If barriers to using eLearning tools are put up then educators and students won't use the tools, and this sets up a feedback loop.
The VLE I have been using is "Chalkboard", which although nowhere near ideal or perfect, it has significantly helped (and at times hindered) my survival of the semester.
Nature Education is delighted to announce the launch of Principles of Biology , the first textbook in the Principles of Science series of affordable, high quality interactive textbooks in college-level science.
Principles of Biology contains more than 200 customizable modules, covering chemistry, genetics, cell biology, animal physiology, plant physiology, and ecology.
UK Centre for Bioscience OER project - Phase 2 The UK Centre for Bioscience sucessfully bid for funding to undertake a 'Collections Strand' Open Educational Resources project over 2010-2011 following its success with the phase 1 (OER pilot projects) Interactive Laboratory and Fieldwork Manual for the Biosciences project. Working with ten discipline consultants from across the country we have produced a wiki for the benefit of the bioscience community to explore the potential of OERs across a range of disciplines.
Illustrations by Joe Kloc This month marks the ten-year anniversary of the sequencing of the human genome, that noble achievement underpinning the less noble sales of 23andMe 's direct-to-consumer genetic tests . To commemorate the scientific occasion, we've created an illustrated introduction to one subfield of genetics likely to produce even more dubious novelty science projects someday: epigenetics.
