HW14

  1. Summarize what you learned in the course. You may use fragments of you past homeworks in your summary.
  2. Express your opinion about the scientific theme of the course.
  3. Write your summary and opinion electronically in your homework blog.
  4. I checked with the office, there is no need for paper copies of your last homework.  Please disregard my previous request for the paper copies.
  5. If you have not presented some of your assignments (topics or papers) yet, be prepared to present them in last class. Tell me here, in the comments to this post, what you will be presenting so I could estimate how much time will I have left for my summary lecture.

HW13

1. Pick either a journal paper OR a Powerpoint presentation to  present in class (one OR another).

Papers:

  1. 1980.pdf
  2. Cortis.pdf
  3. GHz.pdf
  4. gurwitsch.pdf
  5. hopping.pdf

If you can not come with any hypothesis, please review current theories of others on this topic and how the shapes are defined in graphical computer files. I will select best works for discussion in the class.

4. Experimental designs. Alex, Brian, Lana, Peter   and Tyler - please present you experimental designs.

Everyone, please be prepared to discuss, criticize or praise the experiment designs of others. Prepare questions to others in advance. You may post your questions now as comments to their posts.

5. Look at comments to this post to see which papers from the list below have been taken. Pick a paper for reading and reporting it later.

In the comments to this post please tell others the number of the paper you have taken.

HW8

1. Read and comment previous homework of others.

2. Read first half of Chapter 6 from Craig Venter's autobiography. Second half of this file is for reading for HW9. No need to read it now unless you want so.

===

Next two tasks:  I divided the students into 2 groups. Group 1 will present Journal club articles next class and experimental design in the class after that. The group 2 will present experimental designs next class and Journal club articles in the class after that.

3Journal Club. Alex, Brian, Lana, Peter and Tyler please present your summaries of the papers you have done for HW6. I will open the pdfs of the papers on the screen and you will tell us about your paper and explain essential figures.

4. Experimental designs. Amber, Jaime, Meghan, Tim and Zachary - please present you experimental designs.

Everyone, please be prepared to discuss, criticize or praize the expreriment designs of others. Prepare questions to others in advance. You may post your questions now as comments to their posts.

HW7

1. Read and comment HW6 of others.

 

2. I changed the formula for the experiment - that will make it more practical, closer to the reality and will better link biophotonics to LLLT. Design the experiment to test the hypothesis that LLLT (red light) applied during under 3 minutes induces ultraweak delayed (in range of hours) bioluminescence in UV region (radiation of Gurwitsch-Popp type of biophotons) and that these biophotons demonstrate biological = regulatory activity, presumably mitogenic. Describe the experiment, propose the budget, number of people needed and time to accomplish. What animal/cell culture/in vitro model will you use? Which positive/negative controls will you incorporate? What results do you anticipate to obtain and how will you interpret them?

Same assignment in different wording: a biological system is irradiated with red light for few minutes. You need to test whether red light induces it to irradiate weak UV (biophotons) and that these biophotons show (for example) mitogenic properties (cause cells to divide). Testing other biological actions of these biophotons will be good too.

 

3. Below are 15 papers about biophotons. Check the comments to see which papers have been already taken, pick one untaken and tell others which one you have picked.

Read the paper and share useful info with the rest of the group. The key question to address: Is there a mechanistic link between LLLT and release of biophotons by DNA? What is experimental evidence? Describe the experimental models used (if any). Ideally, use Internet to learn unknown terms (say from Wikipedia) and to follow interesting leads.
