Advanced PubMed

Workshop | September 6 | 12-1 p.m. | Valley Life Sciences Building, Bioscience Library Training Room, 2101 VLSB

 Elliott Smith, Emerging Technologies and Bioinformatics Librarian, Bioscience Library


A hands-on workshop introducing advanced features of PubMed that can help your searching to be more effective and efficient.

“Profiling Cells Inside and Out Using Nanostructured Materials”

Seminar | September 6 | 12-1 p.m. | 290 Hearst Memorial Mining Building

 Shana Kelley, University of Toronto

 Bioengineering (BioE)

290 Hearst Memorial Mining Building
Our group uses aspects of biophysical and materials chemistry to create new systems that permit biomolecular analytes and rare cells to be tracked and profiled. Nanomaterials play a central role in these efforts, as the unique properties of materials engineered at the nanoscale allow previously unreachable levels of sensitivity and specificity to be realized.

Wikipedia in the Classroom

Workshop | September 6 | 12-2 p.m. | Dwinelle Hall, The Academic Innovation Studio/127D

 Samantha Weald, The Wiki Education Foundation

 American Cultures

Are you interested in learning how to create Wikipedia as classroom assignments? The AC Center and the Wiki Education Foundation Educators invite you to join us as we discuss how to build Wikipedia assignments into your courses and discover some of the new tools, which support and enhance teaching with Wikipedia.

East Bay Science Cafe- Chew on this: The evolution of tooth eruption in mammals

Presentation | September 6 | 7-8:30 p.m. |  Restaurant Valparaiso

 1403 Solano Ave, Albany, CA 94706

 Tesla Monson, Department of Integrative Biology


Why do we have wisdom teeth? And why do so many people need to have them extracted? Teeth are extremely important biological structures that act as a physical interface between mammals and their environment. A great deal is known about the biology of how teeth erupt into the mouth. However, there still remains significant disagreement on the factors driving the evolution of tooth eruption in...   More >
