This second module, entitled Sex and Gender Differences in Health and Behavior, applies the basic concepts presented in the first course to specific conditions and organ systems where sex and gender differences play a significant role.
This course is designed to give the student a basic scientific understanding of the major physiological differences between the sexes, the influences these differences have on illness and health outcomes, and the implications for policy, medical research, and health care.
SwimCoach is rooted in TIES (Technology and Innovation in Educating Swimmers), an EU funded Leonardo da Vinci project - LLP-LdV-TOI-2008-IS-164001 - that ran from 2008 to 2010, and was managed by the University of Iceland.
The main aim of the project was to improve the quality of swimming teacher...
A new class is starting at virology blog: Virology 101.
I began this blog in 2004, to give back what I’ve learned from studying viruses for 30+ years. I’ve written many posts on basic virology, but they tend to disappear with time. To remedy this problem, I’ve collected all these posts with links...
Tengo el gusto de anunciarles que mi curso de virologia esta ahora disponible en Español.
Este trabajo se realizó bajo la dirección de la Dra. Susana López, virologa del Departamento de Genética del Desarrollo y Fisiología Molecular del Instituto de Biotecnología de la Universidad Nacional Autónoma...
Methods used for the study of viruses
* Multiplicity of Infection
* Influenza virus growth in eggs
* Influenza hemagglutination inhibition assay
* Influenza microneutralization assay
* Detecting viruses: the plaque assay
* Measurement of viruses by end-point dilution...
Soon after the new influenza H1N1 strain emerged in April 2009, I began a series of blog posts on basic aspects of influenza virus replication and pathogenesis. The goal of this series is to provide information that will allow everyone to better understand the events surrounding emergence and spread...
This Columbia University virology course is offered each year in the spring semester.
The basic thesis of the course is that all viruses adopt a common strategy. The strategy is simple:
1. Viral genomes are contained in metastable particles.
2. Genomes encode gene products that promote an infectious...
