Life is all around us, both as multicellular organisms such as the iguana and bamboo above, as well as the unicellular microorganisms such as bacteria.  Life is present on every continent, in the air and in the waters of the world.  There is life even in the Mariana Trench, seven miles below the surface of the ocean.  As of 2010 biologists have described and classified 1.7 million plants and animals, and estimate that there are till over five million species still undiscovered.This chapter will introduce the ways we study the science of Biology in the twenty-first century, the characteristics of living organisms and their classification.

Biology is the science that studies life, but what exactly is life? This may sound like a silly question with an obvious response, but it is not always easy to define life. For example, a branch of biology called virology studies viruses, which exhibit some of the characteristics of living entities but lack others. It turns out that although viruses can attack living organisms, cause diseases, and even reproduce, they do not meet the criteria that biologists use to define life. Consequently, virologists are not biologists, strictly speaking. Similarly, some biologists study the early molecular evolution that gave rise to life; since the events that preceded life are not biological events, these scientists are also excluded from biology in the strict sense of the term.

Economics in U.S. History

Rating
0.0 stars

Economics in U.S. History is comprised of seven lessons and is designed to introduce students to basic economic concepts through analyzing diverse perspectives on the subject. Students will be engaged in a dynamic, interactive, and constructivist process of exploring media representations of economic issues in U.S. history. Such issues include the free market, industrialization, and The Living Wage Campaign. The kit will teach students to identify the Ě_Ě_€ÝlanguageĚ_Ě_ĺ of construction of different media forms and to analyze and evaluate the meaning of mediated messages about economics. This kit was designed for 8th grade U.S. history, but the document-decoding approach can be adapted for and used from middle school through high school.

Financial institutions are a pillar of civilized society, supporting people in their productive ventures and managing the economic risks they take on. The workings of these institutions are important to comprehend if we are to predict their actions today and their evolution in the coming information age. The course strives to offer understanding of the theory of finance and its relation to the history, strengths and imperfections of such institutions as banking, insurance, securities, futures, and other derivatives markets, and the future of these institutions over the next century.

This resource is a video abstract of a research paper created by Research Square on behalf of its authors. It provides a synopsis that's easy to understand, and can be used to introduce the topics it covers to students, researchers, and the general public. The video's transcript is also provided in full, with a portion provided below for preview:

"In September of 2016, a violent storm left South Australia without power. At the time, 57% of the region's power came from wind and solar-a stark contrast to the coal-dominated energy mix of its neighbors to the east. To some politicians and backers of coal, it was proof that renewable energy couldn't be trusted. To renewable energy pioneers, it was a technical challenge: could a large-enough battery cushion the swings in wind and solar power? In a recent review article published in MRS Energy & Sustainability, energy experts weigh in, considering-among other factors-the political and legal ramifications of going big with batteries. The summer after South Australia's big blackout, the state government doubled down and announced the construction of the world's biggest battery. Within 100 days, the clean-energy company Tesla delivered a 129-MWh lithium-ion battery, all for $91 million without government subsidies..."

LncRNA-regulated amino acid metabolism: the propellant behind cancer metabolic reprogramming

It provides a synopsis that's easy to understand, and can be used to introduce the topics it covers to students, researchers, and the general public. The video's transcript is also provided in full, with a portion provided below for preview:

"Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) regulate the transcription, translation, and post-translational modification of target genes and have been a recent target of interest in cancer research for their roles in regulating amino acid metabolism. Cancer cells undergo significant metabolic reprogramming and depend on amino acids as key nutrients. This reprogramming is a critical part of tumorigenesis and cancer progression. Thus, finding ways to measure or target metabolic reprogramming may lead to new diagnostics and treatment methods. Research has demonstrated that lncRNAs participate in the reprogramming of amino acid metabolism in cancer cells. However, there are still significant gaps in the literature. Namely, the secondary structures, functions, and molecular mechanisms of lncRNA action are not fully understood, and systemic studies on the function of lncRNAs in tumor amino acid metabolism are still needed. Further, current studies have a long way to go before reaching the clinical stage..."

The video's transcript is also provided in full, with a portion provided below for preview:

"Spermatozoa are incredibly unique specialized cells—once they leave the testes, they do not transcribe genes or synthesize new proteins. So, the final step in their maturation, capacitation, is regulated via posttranslational modifications (PTMs) of existing proteins. To learn more, researchers recently examined the relationship between two types of PTMs in frozen bull sperm, specifically tyrosine phosphorylation and reversible oxidative PTMs (oxPTMs). The researchers also examined the role of PRDX enzymes, as their activity is closely related to reversible oxPTMs. Proteins that bind to the egg surface, called zona-pellucida binding proteins, were especially common among reversible oxPTM modified proteins, and proteins related to the tail, or flagella, were associated with all the analyzed PTM types. Inhibiting PRDX activity during capacitation caused an increase in reversible oxPTMs and a decrease in tyrosine phosphorylation, as well as changes in the PTMs on several key proteins and enzymes..."

"Extracellular vesicles (EVs) are small membrane-bound structures released by cells into the surrounding environment. EVs carry various biomolecules including proteins, DNA, RNA, and lipids and play critical roles in intercellular communication, including influencing the behavior and function of recipient cells. EVs have great potential in the clinical environment as diagnostic markers, treatment delivery vehicles, or therapeutic targets. However, to best utilize them researchers need to understand the mechanisms influencing EVs. Significant progress has been made in understanding the factors that regulate communication between cells via EVs, but there is still much to learn about what regulates EV targeting and uptake by recipient cells. Also, little is currently known about cargo release and relocation within the recipient cell. This is due to the extremely small size of EVs and a lack of imaging technology to visualize them..."
