Design an Experiment Assignment 










    Bil 151 (Laboratory) is a CO-REQUISITE course.

    Please make sure that you are enrolled in a lab section.










   The first work shops meet Tuesday, August 28, 2007
   at 5:00pm in the Cox Science Lecture Hall,   SA 126.
   You will be divided up into groups of 7 or 9 students 
   to form a Learning Community.  Practice problems
   and exercises will be provided to you as a group to solve.

   A Peer Led Team Learning Facilitator will provide guidance.

   Workshops will meet on lab days (Tuesday & Friday) from
   10:00am to 11:30am at a place of your groups choosing.












        The second workshop will be Tuesday Sep 04 at 5:00pm.

        Be sure to meet your Facilitator at the room location
        they set up with you at your first meeting.

                The second set of practice questions will deal with basic
        inorganic chemistry.  Please read chapter 2 before coming to the
        workshop.  It will greatly help you to be able to do the exercises.

   2004 Nobel Prizes in Physiology & Medicine -
American researchers Richard Axel, of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute and Columbia University and Linda B. Buck, of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, shared the 2004 Nobel Prize in physiology or medicine for their work on the sense of smell — showing how, for example, a person can smell a lilac in the spring and recall it in the winter. They discovered genes, in 1991, that give rise to a huge variety of “receptor” proteins that sense particular odors. These proteins are found in cells in the nose, which communicate with the brain. 
     A whiff of an odor brings a mix of different molecules into the nose, where each molecule activates several odor receptors. This pattern of activation is interpreted by the brain, letting people recognize and form memories of about 10,000 different odors.  About 3 percent of human genes are devoted to producing the odor receptors.

   2004 Nobel Prizes in Chemistry for "Proteasomes" - for the discovery of ubiquitin mediated protein degradation.  Arron Ciechanover, Avram Hershko, and Irwin Rose. Protein degradation takes place through a controlled process in which proteins are tagged with a label molecule called ubiquitin, which fastens to the protein to be destroyed. The labelled proteins are then fed into a cells' "waste disposers", the so called proteasomes, where they are chopped into small pieces and destroyed.              Animation (Nobel website) »
