Understanding : bacteria( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How do benign bacteria work? How are infectious bacteria fought? And how are scientists adapting both types of bacteria to good, or evil, uses? This program answers those questions through the observations and insights of Stanley Falkow, president of the American Society for Microbiology; Fred Tenover, chief of antibiotic resistance investigations at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention; and other specialists. The role of E. coli in digestion, the relationship between H. pylori and ulcers, medical applications of C. botulinum, the use of bacteria to clean up toxic waste, the exploitation of anthrax as a weapon, and the discovery of extraterrestrial bacteria are all considered

The first segment explores certain behavioral traits that help explain one's propensity towards alcoholism. In the second segment, the gene responsible for prostate cancer has been identified and another one was found to allow the disease to get started. The last segment highlights research "to determine whether perfect or absolute pitch is solely inherited or a consequence of gene and environment interaction."
Secrets of the sequence( Visual )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The first part of the program includes a discussion on the genetics of twinnings. Testing zygosity explains the difference between fraternal and identical twins. The last part explores the causes of Down Syndrome

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The first part of the program examines the origins of migraine, an illness that affects millions of Americans, mostly women. Researchers can now "decode the migraines' secrets by looking at tiny worms". The second segment focuses on deafness, be it congenital, or acquired in later years. Scientists can now pinpoint a gene that causes deafness. The third segment shows how a tissue bank of tumor types was created. "This bank will help doctors diagnose and treat cancers on a molecular level."
Secrets of the sequence( Visual )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The first part of the program examines the high cost of drug development and how the money is expended. The second segment "surveys the ways in which genetic information might be used to prevent and treat diseases ... from vaccines to sprays to gene therapy". Ultimately, a custom-made drug without any side effect will be created. The third segment shows how aggression is both genetically and environmentally linked
Secrets of the sequence( Visual )

The second segment shows how the coral off the coast of Australia "may help scientists in their search for a new fluorescent protein that could have a profound impact on microbiology". The last segment surveys beef consumption in the United States. With the help of genetic engineering, this popular meat and its by-products -- milk and cheese, will have enhanced taste and quality
