DNA Interactive (DNAi) is dedicated to the moment on February 28, 1953, when Jim Watson and Francis Crick discovered the double-helical structure of DNA – and to the scientists who breathed life into that structure. Many leading scientists, including 11 Nobel Laureates, were interviewed for their viewpoints on how we came to understand the language of DNA, how we bend it to our own service, and what it can tell us about who we are. DNA is a multimedia resource for high school and introductory college biology students and teachers. The DNAi products – an award-winning web site (www.dnai.org) and DVD – are the result of a two-year collaboration between scientists, educators, and film-makers on three continents.
From reinforcing nursing skills to troubleshooting clinical problems on the fly, this dynamic video series follows nursing students and their instructors as they perform a range of essential nursing procedures. Ideal as a stand-alone learning tool or as a companion to textbooks in the Taylor Suite, these engaging videos parallel the skills in the textbooks and are organized in topical modules for easy reference.
The distillation of complex information into a simple diagram is magical. It can make otherwise inaccesible information accessible to anyone. I wanted to make neuroanatomy simple, so I wrote Neuroanatomy: Draw it to Know it during my Neurology Residency at Wash U 10 years ago, which I was fortunate to have Oxford University Press publish. However, the process of reinterperating neuroanatomy through noiseless diagrams taught me that to "keep it simple, stupid" is anything but easy.
