Comparing The Human And Chimpanzee Genomes – Video

Posted: at 11:58 pm

03-08-2012 08:27 Please Subscribe To The Evolution Documentary YouTube Channel: MIRROR From The Richard Dawkins Foundation: Richard Dawkins shows just how similar the Human and Chimpanzee genomes really are, with the help of a great visual from the University of Nebraska Museum. Download Quicktime version (720p HD): Get the RDF TV podcast through iTunes! During Richard Dawkins' 2009 American tour, we visited Judy Diamond's "Explore Evolution" exhibit at the University of Nebraska State Museum in Lincoln. This exhibit has now been replicated in six museums around the country. While visiting we filmed a collection of short unrehearsed and unscripted videos—just inspired by the "Explore Evolution" exhibit. See the "Explore Evolution" web page here:

NOVA scienceNOW : 51 – Public Genomes, Algae Fuel, Mystery of the Gakkel Ridge, Yoky Matsuoka – Video

Posted: at 11:58 pm

04-09-2012 14:10 Public Genomes - 02:00 A slew of businesses now offer to test your DNA and assess your risk of getting cancer, heart disease, and other illnesses. But can genetic testing provide accurate predictions of conditions with complex genetic underpinnings? On another front, researchers at Harvard have launched the Personal Genome Project, enlisting thousands of people to make their DNA sequences and other personal information public on the Internet. The aim is to improve medical research, but what are the risks? Algae Fuel - 15:22 What if you could generate useable biofuels that didn't have the problems associated with corn ethanol or plant-based processes, didn't use arable land or freshwater, and didn't rely on foodstuffs, and that also cost very little and could be "tuned" to produce hydrogen? Well, there is such a thing. It's algae, which just may be our biofuel future. Mystery of the Gakkel Ridge - 29:11 Stretching for more than a thousand miles at the bottom of the Arctic Ocean, Gakkel Ridge is an eerie undersea landscape of volcanoes, hydrothermal plumes, and exotic creatures. But while Gakkel Ridge may be unique on Earth, it bears an enticing resemblance to Europa, one of Jupiter's many moons. Could exploring Gakkel bring us one step closer to finding out if Europa might host life? Profile: Yoky Matsuoka - 36:36 Growing up in Japan, Yoky Matsuoka was on her way to becoming a world-class tennis player. When injuries ended her tennis dreams, she turned to another early ...

ENCODE: Encyclopedia Of DNA Elements – Video

Posted: at 11:58 pm

06-09-2012 04:00 ENCODE, the Encyclopaedia of DNA Elements, is the most ambitious human genetics project to date. It takes the 3 billion letters described by the Human Genome Project in 2000, and tries to explain them. Remarkably, ENCODE scientists have managed to assign a biochemical function to 80% of the genome, including the genes and the parts of the genome that tell those genes what to do. This information is helping us understand how genomes are interpreted to make different types of cells and different people -- and crucially, how mistakes can lead to disease. In this video, ENCODE's lead coordinator, Ewan Birney, and Nature editor Magdalena Skipper talk about the challenges of managing this colossal project and what we've learnt about our genomes.

25 Ways You Can Live A Longer Life – Video

Posted: at 11:58 pm

09-04-2012 00:49 While scientists are still debating the limits to human longevity, current estimates hover somewhere around 120 years based on various studies of cell division. Of course, although most of us will never even get close to that point, this doesn't mean you should be wreckless and stop wearing your seatbelt. Instead, grab yourself a notepad and listen up because these 25 ways you can live a longer life just might give you a shot. Also check out the text version here -

Introduction to Life Insurance – Basic History of Life Insurance – Video

Posted: at 11:58 pm

06-05-2012 20:05 EduTrainer Steve Savant, national insurance columnist and host of the daily Internet talk show, the Business Insurance Zone coaches you through the basic understanding and planning applications of life insurance. Methuselah lived 969 years during the anti-diluvium. The post-diluvium period witnessed a marked decline in human longevity. The Roman Empire average age for males was 25. When Juan Ponce de lone was searching for the fountain of youth in Florida in the 1530s the average age for a male was 36. When Sir Edmund Halley constructed the first working actuarial tables in 1694 when males average age in England was 47, The Commissioners Standard Operational (CSO) Tables 1941 CSO (Used in the construction of the social security benefit tables 1958 CSO, the first modern mortality tables 1980 CSO, revolutionary extensions in endowment and maturity dates 2001 CSO, present day mortality tables.
