Tuberculosis: A Persistent Threat to Global Health - Part 3: Phenotypic Heterogeneity and Antibiotic Tolerance (27:15)

submitted by: video_collector
The principal obstacle to successful treatment of tuberculosis is the lengthy duration of current regimens, which require administration of multiple drugs for 6-9 months. The requirement for prolonged therapy is attributed to sub-populations of bacillary "persisters" that are refractory to antimicrobials. The persisters are not drug-resistant in the conventional (heritable) sense and it is a mystery why they are spared whilst their genetically identical siblings are killed. The third part of...

Tuberculosis: A Persistent Threat to Global Health - Part 2: Tools for Tuberculosis Control: Not Just a Problem of Implementation (28:18)

submitted by: video_collector
Tuberculosis remains one of the most important causes of human disease and death despite the introduction of vaccination in 1921 and chemotherapy in 1952. Although these interventions are inexpensive and widely available their impact is limited. The effectiveness of vaccination is unclear; in clinical trials, the protection conferred by vaccination has been variable and generally poor. Although chemotherapy can be highly effective, multiple drugs must be administered for 6-9 months to...

Welcome to Next-Generation Sequencing 2008 Conference

submitted by: dougramsey
Calit2's Center for Algorithmic and Systems Biology (CASB) recently hosted the UC San Diego Next-Generation Sequencing and Informatics Symposium. The Nov. 9-10 meeting provided an introduction to next-generation sequencing techniques, along with reports on the latest data analysis algorithms and tools. The first day focused on resequencing and de novo sequencing, and the algorithmic developments that are driving the increase in data quality and volume in this field. On day two, the focus...

Illumina

submitted by: dougramsey
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...

Kaleidoscope Project

submitted by: Doorbell Productions

A proposal for an interactive process that integrates myth and science regarding water-culture awareness. If science and myth are reconciled, we believe that synthesis can occur within communities in ways that enable collaboration, trust building, and local water policy change, especially where common pool resources are a concern.
Kaleidoscope Authors: John Klock, Ana Lu Fonseca, Denise Elston, Sarah Sheldrick, and Brock Tabor
