We report an interesting observation of minimization of bacterial attachment on titanium nitride coatings of increased thickness. DC magnetron sputtering method was used to prepare titanium nitride coatings of different thickness and the attachment of an oral bacteria Porphyromonas gingivalis was studied. With increase in thickness of the coatings the ...

The synthesis of superporous hydrogel composites (SPHCs) with carboxylmethylcellulose sodium (NaCMC) as a composite material was carried out by solution polymerization. The characterization studies were performed by measurement of apparent density, swelling studies, mechanical strength studies, and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). In double distilled water SPHCs showed tremendous increase in ...

Hematopoietic Stem Cells (HSCs) are self-renewing multipotent cells able to produce all blood cell lineages. More relevant to Hematopoietic Stem Progenitor Cells (HSPC) expansion, studies have suggested that a 3D culture microenvironment is conducive for HSPC proliferation and differentiation. The present study is an attempt to establish the conditions for ...

Students observe a tree bud from late winter until it sprouts. They learn to use dichotomous keys to identify their tree. The activity is inquiry-based; students predict when their bud will open and what it will become. Student drawings, quotes, and data are included to exemplify the process. The activity ...

Four inquiry-based laboratories are described that introduce students to the properties of human brain cells. These experiments require no technical equipment, are inexpensive and safe, and introduce students to genuine research using neuropsychological investigations as a means of studying the properties of brain cells. Students design and conduct an experiment ...

Biological research entails myriad techniques and considerations for proper experimental design and data collection. The duality of field-based research techniques and laboratory protocols makes introducing this topic to high school and undergraduate college students a challenge. Two invertebrate models that serve as wonderful tools to support an inquiry process to ...

The inclusion of nonscientists in biological research projects has become a useful mechanism for capturing long-term ecological data while exposing students firsthand to science and the scientific method. I have combined several existing citizen-science-based research efforts focused on Danaus plexippus, the monarch butterfly, into a comprehensive yet simple ecological lab ...

We present a tutorial for Cn3D, a molecular visualization program that allows students to see the tertiary structure of a protein and compare it with the primary structure of the same protein (Sayers et al., 2009). Students can also use the program to visualize two major evolutionary mechanisms: duplication and ...
Grumbine, Richard - - 2010
I describe the use of long-term data-collection projects for introductory biology or environmental science students at both the high school and the college nonmajors level. I provide specific examples of projects and information on guiding students as they learn to gather, organize, and describe data sets.

Family of natriuretic peptides (NP), consists of eight or more peptides associated with each other. These are, atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) prohormone consisting of 126 amino acids; brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) prohormone consisting of 108 amino acids; C-type natriuretic peptide (CNP) prohormone consisting of 126 amino acids. Although recently identified, ...
