Epigenetic control of retrotransposon expression in human embryonic stem cells. Relevent to #BS1015 as it is showing control of gene expression, but also to #BS1003 as it is shown in stem cells, furthering our understanding of how stem cells differentiate and moving us closer towards using stem cells in treatments. - http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez...
A genomic view of 500 million years of cnidarian evolution, very relevent to the #BS1012 lectures covering cnidarians that we have had this week - http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez...
Yea, I thought so too, i'll read it! Thanks for sharing it! - Emmanuelle
Dr. Rawlings #CH1070 notes and powerpoint slides on blackboard are awesome.
Cool animation showing DNA surpercoiling #BS1015 http://www.youtube.com/watch...

Watson and Crick's classic paper, but with an insightful commentary #BS1015 http://sandwalk.blogspot.com/2007...
Some interesting research focusing on polyadenylation #BS1015 the abstract gives a really good overview of the process http://genome.cshlp.org/content...
Actually really enjoyed my #BS1015 tutorial today! Inspired me to look over some work on gene cloning and look for any recent developments. I found this article on cystic fibrosis and its clear gene cloning has played an essential part in understanding it http://mcdb.colorado.edu/courses...
I realise it's a really old paper, but it just shows a lot of the advancements since have been built upon knowledge gained from gene cloning. - Christopher Jones
Really useful website. Gives a straightforward definition for all Biochemistry and molecular biology terms, so it's good to have as we're working our way through #BS1015. Also the definitions can't be altered by just anyone, so it's more professional and reliable than wikipedia. http://www.portlandpress.com/pp...
Thanks, this is really useful. - Brendan Jackson
This is a good lecture covering a few of the basics of cell structure from #BS1003. Very useful as a reminder now i'm writing my BS1003 tutorial essay. http://www.youtube.com/watch...

Had Prof. Heslop Harrison's first #BS1003 lecture the other day and he talked about just how many lives genetically modifed crops have saved. Here's an overview of some recent developments on the "identification of target genes of key floral regulators". The more we advance then, potentially, the more lives can be saved from famine. - http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez...
Wish i'd found this before i spent ages getting my head around my #BS1015 notes! Really good explanation of the structure of nucleotides and the bonds within and between nucleotides - including the 3' 5' ends, which at first confused me . . . http://www.youtube.com/watch...

Thanks for the link. I'm a visual learner so this has been helpful. I know someone else who was also unsure on this so i shall be passing the link on. - Neil Nathwani
Doing the write up for the #BS1003 practical . . . does anyone know how to convert the epu to micro metres please?!
nevermind i got it (Y) - Christopher Jones
Woop got 100% on the BS1010 thing :) glad i've got those websites now for future use.
Don't forget the hashtag :) #BS1010 but well done! - Joshua Bower
enjoyed getting to use the microscopes in the #BS1003 practical today. Hard to get the hang of but so much better than the ones in my old college . . .
http://www.youtube.com/watch... This is pretty interesting, particularly as it's so relevent to our work in #BS1015. It just shows huge advancements are still being made around the information we're learning, which is a good thought.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/science... so glad i read Bad Science by Ben Goldacre, can't believe i used to fall for this media rubbish!! I feel sorry for the Dr. whose work/words got twisted.
I agree! This sums up the daily mail and their approach to science nicely : http://kill-or-cure.heroku.com/ - Dr Jo Badge
Grr, I was just about to post that link! - Dr Alan Cann
