JONATHAN HOPTON Selected Pre-2008 specifications Last amended 23/08/2017 Holiday Lectures on Science Each autumn, leading scientists come to HHMI headquarters, where they speak to an audience of high school students from around the greater Washington, D.C., region. The annual two-day event is an energetic celebration of science, with hands-on activities, lectures, discussion, and lively exchanges between students, teachers, and scientists. The live event is the foundation for a whole range of resources that are nationally distributed to teachers, reaching an audience of millions of students. Over the more than 15-year history of the program, Holiday Lectures have covered evolution, earth science, virology, and biodiversity, among other topics. The lectures are broadcast live and also made freely available online at BioInteractive.org and on DVD, which can be ordered for free through HHMI’s Order Materials page.
Would You Eat That? The Game of Naming What's in What You Eat Getting the most out of what you eat takes knowing what's in your food. While packaged and prepared food can save time, it takes a lot of chemistry to keep those items edible on the long trip from the factory to your face. Do you know what is actually in some of your favorite food? Play "Would You Eat That?" and you'll be challenged to identify ingredients in some of your favorite foods.

Solar-powered sea slug harnesses stolen plant genes - life - 24 November 2008 Video: Watch a sea slug eat algae to nab some of its chloroplasts, and the genes that keep them functioning It's the ultimate form of solar power: eat a plant, become photosynthetic. Now researchers have found how one animal does just that. Elysia chlorotica is a lurid green sea slug, with a gelatinous leaf-shaped body, that lives along the Atlantic seaboard of the US. Science Science Clips Definitely one not to be missed! Fabulous interactive Flash science activities for primary-aged children matched to curriculum requirements throughout the UK. Overview of Blackett Family DNA Activity Overview DNA Analyst Bob Blackett has graciously provided The Biology Project with sample data from his own work. In this activity, you will learn the concepts and techniques behind DNA profiling of the 13 core CODIS "Short Tandem Repeat" loci used for the national DNA databank. You will then have the opportunity to collect and interpret actual STR data, and to answer one or more of the following questions: How is STR data used in a DNA Paternity Test? How can STR data from close relatives be used to create a genetic profile of a missing person?
How to Extract DNA from Anything Living - StumbleUpon First, you need to find something that contains DNA. Since DNA is the blueprint for life, everything living contains DNA. For this experiment, we like to use green split peas. But there are lots of other DNA sources too, such as: Spinach Chicken liver Strawberries Broccoli
HyperPhysics Concepts About HyperPhysics Rationale for Development HyperPhysics is an exploration environment for concepts in physics which employs concept maps and other linking strategies to facilitate smooth navigation. Tissue Engineering for Life Take a tour of the bone and discover how old or injured bone tissue is constantly being replaced with new bone cells, in a process called remodeling. These new cells come from the bone marrow, a veritable factory of adult stem cells. Doctors are studying these processes to figure out how to help bone heal faster and better. Most tissues in the body are less efficient at healing themselves.

The Virtual Lab Series BioInteractive’s virtual labs have won several awards, including top honors in the Pirelli INTERNETional Award competition, which recognizes the best multimedia products designed to use the Internet to educate about science and technology. Designed in close consultation with educators and scientists, these virtual labs are fully interactive biomedical laboratory simulations and provide students with skills and techniques used in scientific research. BioInteractive’s series of virtual labs allows students to examine heart patients, analyze DNA sequences, probe the nervous system of a leech, use human antibodies to diagnose disease, and measure physical traits of stickleback fish and anole lizards to examine key concepts in evolution. Each lab provides an interactive environment in which students perform experiments and collect their data, and answer questions to assess their understanding. The labs can be accessed by clicking the icons on the right-hand side of the page.
