General Scientific Links (a.k.a., Teaching Science in the Community):
- Understanding Evolution and why its so important to health, disease, and our fundamental understanding of biology.
- Learn Genetics with videos and interactive lessons.
- Introduction to X-ray Crystallography. An easy to understand video going from cells to structure.
- "Mini Med-School" lecture by Robert H. Lustig, MD, UCSF Professor of Pediatrics in the Division of Endocrinology, explores the damage caused by sugary foods. He argues that (too much) fructose and (not enough) fiber appear to be cornerstones of the obesity epidemic through their effects on insulin. Series: UCSF Mini Medical School for the Public (7/2009; Health and Medicine, Show ID: 16717)
- Tree of Life web project about biodiversity.
- Learn about RNAi and gene regulation, with "a petunia, Pirate Ships, little Chefs, and 'the Cop'." (Intrigued? Click on the link and watch the video)
- The Powers of 10 expolores the range of sizes in our world, and our perspective in it. “We find that we inhabit an insignificant planet of a hum-drum star lost in a galaxy tucked away in some forgotten corner of a universe in which there are far more galaxies than people.” -Carl Sagan
