Samir Kumar Pal gives a talk at the ICAM 2007 conference about simulations of biomolecular dynamics and function

The folding and binding landscape of ankyrin repeat proteins

submitted by: icamvid

Elizabeth Komiups gives a talk at the RPP08 conference about the I?B? / NF-?B complex. She discusses the interface between the two proteins, the stabilization of the complex by "hotspots", and the folding of I?B? upon binding.

Tip of the Week: NCBI's FLink

submitted by: OpenHelix

For more information about this resource see our blog post at URL Here I'll introduce you to FLink, or Frequency weighted Links, NCBI's tool for linking items from one of their databases to a weighted list of associated items in another of their databases.

High resolution tomographic imaging of the alveolar region of the mammalian lung

submitted by: habi

The video is an overview of my work in the last 3.75 years at the Institute of Anatomy. It was the talk I gave as my PhD-Defense. My main work was the radiation-optimized increase in the field of view of tomographic imaging stations, thus most of the time of my talk was spent on this.

Tip of the Week: PSI Structural Genomics Knowledgebase

submitted by: OpenHelix
For more information about this resource see our blog post at URL on the OpenHelix blog. The PSI Structural Genomics Knowledgebase is a great resource for protein information, including structural information, especially if you are not a structural biologist. In this short movie I will search for a specific Protein Data Bank (PDB) ID & show you the information you can obtain and how it is formatted.

The Vertebrate Retina: Structure, Function, and Evolution: Part 3: The Evolution of Trichromatic Color Vision (43:26)

submitted by: scivee-team

The third lecture describes recent work on the evolution of trichromatic color vision in humans and our primate relatives.

The Vertebrate Retina: Structure, Function, and Evolution: Part 2: Human Color Vision and its Variations (44:33)

submitted by: scivee-team

The second lecture focuses on the photoreceptors that mediate human color vision and the molecular basis for the common inherited anomalies of color vision.

The Vertebrate Retina: Structure, Function, and Evolution: Part 1B: Photoreceptors and Image Processing (35:22)

submitted by: scivee-team

In this set of lectures, Jeremy Nathans explores the molecular mechanisms within the retina that mediate the first steps in vision. The first lecture focuses on the structure of the light sensing receptors, the intracellular signals that are triggered by light absorption, and the ways in which the retina extracts information from a complex scene.

At Illumina, our goal is to apply innovative technologies and revolutionary assays to the analysis of genetic variation and function, making studies possible that were not even imaginable just a few years ago. These studies will help make the realization of personalized medicine possible. With such rapid advances in technology taking place, it is mission critical to have solutions that are not only innovative, but flexible, scalable, and complete with industry-leading support and service. As...
