James Spudich (Stanford) 1: A brief history of muscle biology 1864-1969
 
31:05
https://www.ibiology.org/cell-biology/muscle-biology/ James Spudich begins his talk with an early history of muscle biology, and through parts 2-4 of his talk, he moves forward to our current understanding of the molecular basis of muscle contraction and disease. Talk Overview: Dr. Spudich begins his talks with a clear overview of muscle biology. Muscles are made of many cells and each cell contains many contractile units called sarcomeres. Sarcomeres are made of parallel filaments of two different proteins, actin and myosin. The filaments slide relative to each other and cause the sarcomere, and in turn the muscle, to contract. Spudich recounts the breakthroughs that led muscle biologists to propose this sliding filament model (~1950). By 1969, experiments using electron microscopy, a new relatively new technology at the time, and X-ray diffraction, had advanced the model to explain how the “swing” of individual myosin molecules along actin filaments could power muscle contraction. Speaker Biography: James (Jim) Spudich is the Douglass M. and Nola Leishman Professor of Cardiovascular Disease in the Department of Biochemistry at Stanford University School of Medicine.  For the past several decades, his lab has studied the structure and function of the myosin family of motor proteins.  More recently Spudich’s lab has focused on human cardiac muscle myosin and the molecular basis of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.   Spudich received his B.S. in chemistry from the University of Illinois and his Ph.D. in biochemistry from Stanford University. He was a post-doctoral fellow at Stanford University and then at the MRC Laboratory in Cambridge where he worked with Hugh Huxley.  Spudich joined the faculty of the University of California, San Francisco from 1971-1977.  In 1977, he moved to Stanford University where he was first a professor in the Department of Structural Biology and, since 1992, has been a professor in the Department of Biochemistry.  Spudich is also an Adjunct Professor at the Institute of Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine (inStem) and the National Center for Biological Sciences (NCBS) in Bangalore, India. Spudich serves on numerous editorial and scientific advisory boards.  His research contributions have been recognized with many honors and prizes including the Albert Lasker Basic Medical Research Award in 2012, the E.B. Wilson Award from the American Society for Cell Biology in 2011, and the Biophysics Society Award for Outstanding Investigator in 2005.  He is an elected fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and an elected member of the US National Academy of Sciences.

Dan Littman (NYU / HHMI) 2: Shaping of Immune Responses by the Microbiota
 
45:16
https://www.ibiology.org/immunology/th17 Th17 cells are important in our protective immune response to bacteria and fungi. They also can exist, however, in a pathogenic form that causes autoimmune disease. In his first lecture, Dan Littman discusses the opposing roles of Th17 cells. They protect mucosal surfaces from infection with bacteria and fungi, but they can also cause autoimmune inflammation. Using a mouse model of autoimmunity called experimental autoimmune encephalitis (EAE), Littman and his lab have shown that there are two types of Th17 cells. Non-pathogenic Th17 cells are induced by the microbiota and protect barrier surfaces, while pathogenic Th17 cells are induced by the presence of IL-23, likely the result of inflammation elsewhere in the body. Both types Th17 cells secrete the cytokines IL-17A, IL-17F and IL-22, however, pathogenic Th17 cells also secrete interferon gamma (IFNγ) which induces further inflammation and autoimmune disease. In the last 10 years, several classes of innate lymphoid cells have been found to share similar cytokine profiles to Th17 cells and these cells appear to be another important layer in protecting surfaces in the gut and lung from infection. In his second talk, Littman explains that different commensal microbes in our gut elicit different T cell responses - either pathogenic or non-pathogenic. His lab is beginning to identify the pathogens and decipher the pathways that determines the host T cell response. This research has important clinical relevance since a cancer patient’s microbiota may help determine their response to chemotherapy. Microbiota that induce non-pathogenic Th17 cells are protective against autoimmunity but may decrease anti-tumor immunity, while microbiota that contribute to autoimmunity may enhance anti-tumor T cell responses. Speaker Biography: Dan Littman is the Helen and Martin Kimmel Professor of Molecular Immunology in the Department of Pathology and a professor in the Department of Microbiology at the Skirball Institute of Biomolecular Medicine of New York University School of Medicine. He is also an Investigator of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. Littman discovered the excitement of science while he was an undergraduate student at Princeton University. He went on to receive his M.D. and Ph.D. from Washington University in St. Louis. As post-doc in Richard Axel’s lab at Columbia University, Littman isolated the genes for CD8 and CD4, molecules involved in T lymphocyte development. Littman then joined the faculty of the University of California, San Francisco where he was one of the first scientists to recognize that HIV infects T helper cells by binding to CD4. Since 1995, Littman has been based at NYU. Littman’s lab has continued to study the development and differentiation of T lymphocytes. They are interested in understanding how a normal protective immune response differs from a pathogenic response such as that found in inflammation and autoimmune disease. Currently, they are also investigating the importance of the microbiome in influencing immunity. Littman is a member of the National Academy of Sciences and a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Science and the American Academy of Microbiology. His groundbreaking work has been recognized with many prizes including the 2004 New York City Mayor’s Award for Excellence in Science and Technology, the 2013 Ross Prize in Molecular Medicine, and the 2016 Vilcek Prize in Biomedical Science amongst others.

Provost's Lecture: Bruce Alberts - Science and the World's Future
 
01:16:56
Bruce Albert's lecture focused on his two terms and what he learned as President of the National Academy of Sciences from 1993 to 2005. From visits with Kenyan scientists and subsistence farms of Lake Victoria to helping establish wireless technology in Pondicherry, India, and an Indian cooperative that produced parasitic moths in villages that had previously relied on pesticides that were linked to illness, Alberts said his biggest takeaway was "that science is much more important than most scientists think." He spoke of the National Science Education Standards, a 250-page report from 1996 that took four years to produce at the request of 50 state governors. He said that the policies in its wake combined with what were supposed to be voluntary national standards resulted in a "disaster" and "tremendous time wasted by curriculum developers trying to make the textbooks match the needs of multiple states." Albert said that real science is different than what appears in the students' textbooks, resulting in the loss of potential scientists. An example is California's insistence that seventh grade students memorize the 12 parts of a human cell. Instead, he insisted, skills should emphasize the capacity for abstract thought, fit the needs of business and industry, and solving real-world problems involving the use of science and technology that result in more than one right answer. "Fifty different states' standards doesn't work," he posited. The result is that among 15-year-olds, the US ranked 25th among 30 industrialized nations in math and 24th in science. "Every two years a new school superintendent has a new magic bullet," Albert said. He said that school districts need PhD scientists to convert into scientific curriculum specialists. As editor of Science Magazine, Alberts has helped establish a competition for the best free science education Web sites. He cited the 1956 book by Jacob Bronowski, "Science and Human Values," which credits science with humanizing societal values while exploring the truth. Bronowski flew over Hiroshima and Nagasaki and afterwards turned to biology to better understand the nature of violence.

01:47:12
Neil deGrasse Tyson is an American astrophysicist, author, and science communicator. Since 1996, he has been the Frederick P. Rose Director of the Hayden Planetarium at the Rose Center for Earth and Space in New York City. About the book: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0691157243/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=0691157243&linkCode=as2&tag=tra0c7-20&linkId=c854b737cc909a981a6e8e55cdc56c0d The center is part of the American Museum of Natural History, where Tyson founded the Department of Astrophysics in 1997 and has been a research associate in the department since 2003. Born and raised in New York City, Tyson became interested in astronomy at the age of nine after a visit to the Hayden Planetarium. After graduating from the Bronx High School of Science, where he was editor-in-chief of the Physical Science Journal, he completed a bachelor's degree in physics at Harvard University in 1980. After receiving a master's degree in astronomy at the University of Texas at Austin in 1983, he earned his master's (1989) and doctorate (1991) in astrophysics at Columbia University. For the next three years, he was a postdoctoral research associate at Princeton University. In 1994, he joined the Hayden Planetarium as a staff scientist and the Princeton faculty as a visiting research scientist and lecturer. In 1996, he became director of the planetarium and oversaw its $210-million reconstruction project, which was completed in 2000. From 1995 to 2005, Tyson wrote monthly essays in the "Universe" column for Natural History magazine, some of which were published in his book Death by Black Hole (2007). During the same period, he wrote a monthly column in Star Date magazine, answering questions about the universe under the pen name "Merlin". Material from the column appeared in his books Merlin's Tour of the Universe (1998) and Just Visiting This Planet (1998). Tyson served on a 2001 government commission on the future of the U.S. aerospace industry, and on the 2004 Moon, Mars and Beyond commission. He was awarded the NASA Distinguished Public Service Medal in the same year. From 2006 to 2011, he hosted the television show NOVA ScienceNow on PBS.

Conversations in Science with Dan Rather & Jennifer Doudna: CRISPR
 
37:50
Audio only: https://soundcloud.com/ibiology/conversations-in-science-with-dan-rather-and-jennifer-doudna In the last few years, the term CRISPR has exploded on the global scene, and with it UC Berkeley professor Jennifer Doudna, one of the pioneers in the field, has emerged into the spotlight. From magazine covers, to news broadcasts, to social media, CRISPR is the rare scientific breakthrough that has captivated the interest of the general public. But what is CRISPR really? What are its implications now and into the future? What profound ethical questions are raised by this ability to so precisely and easily edit the genome? In a candid and far-ranging conversation with Dan Rather, Doudna leads viewers through a nuanced and captivating view of this new technology. And along the way she shares her own improbable journey into science and her lessons for others - especially young women - who want to follow in her footsteps. About the speakers: Jennifer Doudna is Professor of the Departments of Chemistry and of Molecular and Cell Biology at University of California, Berkeley and an Investigator of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. Early in her career, she studied the structure and mechanism of ribozymes (enzymatic RNA molecules) and RNA-protein complexes. Now her research focuses on understanding how RNA molecules control gene expression in bacteria and eukaryotic cells, through CRISPR-Cas9 and RNA-mediated mechanisms, respectively. For her outstanding scientific contributions, she was elected into the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 2002 and the National Academy of Sciences in 2003, and was awarded the 2015 Breakthrough Prize in the Life Sciences. Learn more about Jennifer Doudna's research here: http://rna.berkeley.edu/ Dan Rather has a resume that reads like a history book. He has interviewed every American president since Eisenhower and personally covered almost every important global dateline of the last 60 years, from the Civil Rights Movement to Vietnam, to Watergate to the terrorist attacks of 9/11. Rather helped pioneer the very idea that television could be a place for news, and he has kept that spirit of innovation alive by constantly pushing the boundaries of what video storytelling could accomplish. His independent production company News and Guts specializes in high-quality non-fiction content across a range of traditional and digital distribution channels. He has a special interest in telling the stories of science. Learn more about Dan Rather’s production company here: http://www.newsandgutsmedia.com/

Julia Buntaine: A Means without an End: Process in Science-Art Collaboration
 
13:11
Julia Buntaine, Innovator-in-Residence, Rutgers University; Director and Editor-in-chief, SciArt Center and Magazine; Neuroscience-based artist, New York City. Science-art collaboration is an increasingly popular notion as the means and methods of single disciplines are no longer sufficient for innovation. While end products are often the goal, the process of collaboration is what produces the innovative individuals needed as we face the opportunities and challenges of the 21st century. DASER is a monthly discussion forum on art and science projects in the national capital region. DASER strives to provide the public with a snapshot of the cultural environment of the region and to foster community and discussion around the intersection of disciplines.

She is also a Faculty Fellow of the Alan Turing Institute. Her research investigates whether data on our usage of the Internet, from sources such as Google, Twitter, Wikipedia and Flickr can help us measure and predict human behaviour in the real world. The results of her work have been featured by television, radio and press worldwide, by outlets such as CNN, BBC, The Guardian, Wall Street Journal, New Scientist and Wired, and published in journals such as Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. She has acted as an advisor to government and public bodies on related topics. Moat studied Computer Science at UCL and Psychology at Edinburgh, during which time she won prizes including the UCL Faculty of Engineering Medal. Research Everyday usage of the Internet leaves huge volumes of text and images in its wake. Suzy’s research draws on these new data sources, and asks: can we use online data to measure human behaviour and experience we couldn’t measure before? Can we generate quicker, cheaper indicators of the wellbeing of society? Can we use these new data sources to predict human behaviour? Her previous work has touched on problems as diverse as linking online behaviour to stock market moves (with Preis, Curme, Stanley, et al.), estimating crowd sizes (with Botta and Preis) and evaluating whether the beauty of the environment we live in might affect our health (with Seresinhe and Preis). She is interested in generating indicators to support decision making in a range of domains, including economics and health. Dr Tobias Preis - Bio Dr. Tobias Preis is an Associate Professor of Behavioural Science and Finance at the University of Warwick and a Faculty Fellow of the Alan Turing Institute, the UK’s national institute for Data Science.

Technology articles. Dreaming flying Auto (Part-2/2)
 
10:47
This video walks through searching Education Source and ERIC for articles on a specific topic- integrating technology in the classroom. Robots - 2016 News and Articles - Robotic Technology(Full Documentary) As humans, all of our greatest dreams and biggest fears about technology seem to be provoked by the stirring topic of robotic technologies. Robots have the potential to eliminate a great amount of monotonous work, provide assistance to human workers and serve in highly specialized environments, like hospitals or factories. At the same time, people can be concerned with how this technology will change daily life and worry about increasing isolation among humans or the loss of a job as a result. Even major names in technology development have showed signs of being spooked by robotics. In a talk given at a technology symposium held at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, SpaceX CEO Elon Musk called robots the “biggest existential threat” to the human race, even arguing for national and international regulatory oversight on artificial (AI) development. Musk is even an investor in robotics, having put money into the AI development firm Vicarious, making his unease over the negative potential of robotics all the more telling. This holiday season, robots will likely have a much higher profile than they typically enjoy. Retail stores will prove to be a major testing ground for the consumer use of robotic technologies, as Lowe’s recently unveiled a lineup of robotic sales assistants, known as OSHbots, for certain stores. The robot can communicate in multiple languages and can direct customers to the exact location of an item they’re seeking in the store. Collision avoidance and autonomous navigation technologies are incorporated into these sales assistants, helping them travel across large stores safely. Robots have been here for a while but will likely be taking a much greater role in our daily lives. As we found in researching this technology, there are those who still believe that the utopian robotic future of The Jetsons is still very much within our grasp. In today’s article, we’ll look at some of the current activities in robotic development, break down some of the issues facing robotics technologies in our world and view some of the most recently issued patents from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to protect inventions in this field.

Rob McConnell Interviews: Howard Bloom - Science, Syria, Mass Shootings
 
40:17
Howard Bloom, a Visiting Scholar at New York University, is founder of the International Paleopsychology Project, executive editor of the New Paradigm book series, a founding board member of the Epic of Evolution Society, and a member of the New York Academy of Sciences, the National Association for the Advancement of Science, the American Psychological Society, the Human Behavior and Evolution Society, The European Sociobiological Society, and the Academy of Political Science. He has been featured in every edition of Who's Who in Science and Engineering since the publication's inception. Bloom has taken an unusual approach to the study of mass moods and cultural convolutions. He started out normally enough, building his first Boolean algebra machine at the age of twelve, becoming a dedicated microscopist that same year, codesigning a computer which won a Westinghouse Science Award before he left grade school, and being granted a private brainstorming session with the head of the Graduate Physics Department of The State University of New York, Buffalo, at the age of thirteen. By sixteen he was a lab assistant at the world's largest cancer research center, the Roswell Park Memorial Research Cancer Institute, where he helped plumb the mysteries of the immune system. And before his freshman year of college he designed and executed research in Skinnerian programmed learning at Rutgers University's Graduate School of Education. Then came an act of academic heresy. After graduating magna cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa from New York University, Bloom turned down four graduate fellowships and embarked on a 20-year-long urban anthropology expedition to penetrate what he calls "society's myth-making machinery"--the inner sanctums of politics and the media. During his foray into "the dark underbelly of mass emotion" he edited a magazine which won two National Academy of Poets prizes, founded the leading avant-garde art studio on the East Coast, was featured on the cover of Art Direction Magazine, then gave up listening to Beethoven, Bartok, and Mozart to become editor of a rock magazine. Using correlational studies, focus groups, empirical surveys, ethnographic expeditions into suburban teen subcultures, and other scientific techniques, Bloom more than doubled the publication's sales, and was credited by Rolling Stones' Chet Flippo with having founded a new genre--the heavy metal magazine. Seeking still further ways to infiltrate modernity's mass mind, Bloom formed a public relations firm in the music and film industry and won the confidence of those whose territory he'd invaded. The payoff in knowledge proved invaluable. Bloom worked with Michael Jackson, Prince, John Cougar Mellencamp, Kiss, Queen, Bette Midler, Billy Joel, Joan Jett, Diana Ross, Simon & Garfunkel, The Talking Heads, AC/DC, Billy Idol, Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, Run D.M.C., Simply Red, and the heads of many a media conglomerate. He was adept at spotting new subcultures, entering them, and helping their members achieve their goals…a skill which gave him an inside role in the rise of rap, disco, and punk rock. - www.howardbloom.net

Developing the next generation of innovators | Dr Bruce Alberts
 
06:44
On his admission as an Honorary Fellow of the Academy of Medical Sciences, Dr Bruce Alberts shares his views on the importance of developing the next generation of innovators, sharing science education with everyone across the world, and writing his 10th textbook! "If we're going to have a good education for our citizens in science, scientists must be continuously and effectively involved. Otherwise you create a parody of science, the thing that's easy to teach, which is to have kids memorise the words of science - and they hate it, it doesn't mean anything - and they don't get the ability to think rationally, to solve problems, to use evidence and to be tolerant of other people's positions and ideas." Dr Alberts is Professor Emeritus at the Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics, University of California. Through a long career, he has also served as Editor-in-Chief of Science and President of the US National Academy of Sciences. He was admitted as an Honorary Fellow of the Academy of Medical Sciences in July 2014.

This object, at a distance approximately 20 times further than Neptune and with a mass approximately 5000 times larger than Pluto, is the real ninth planet of the solar system. In his lecture, Mike Brown talks about the observation that led his team to the evidence for this Planet Nine and discusses how so massive an object could have been hiding in the outer solar system for so long. He also discusses the international effort to pinpoint this newest member of our planetary family. Mike Brown is the Richard and Barbara Rosenberg Professor of Planetary Astronomy at the California Institute of Technology, specializing in the discovery and study of bodies at the edge of the solar system. He is best known for his discovery of Eris, the most massive object found in the solar system in 150 years, which led to the debate and eventual demotion of Pluto from a real planet to a dwarf planet. In 2006 he was named one of Time Magazine's 100 Most Influential People and was inducted into the National Academy of Sciences in 2014.

How Risks of GMOs Have Been Consistently Underestimated & Misrepresented -Steven Druker
 
01:22:17
"How the Risks of GMOs Have Been Consistently Underestimated and Misrepresented" is the theme of the presentation given by Steven Druker at the Silicon Valley Health Institute on August 17, 2017. Contrary to the claims of its proponents, producing new varieties of food through genetic engineering entails higher risks to human health than does traditional breeding; and the arguments that have been advanced to convince the public otherwise are seriously misleading. Even reports by the US National Academy of Sciences and the UK’s Royal Society cannot withstand scrutiny, and analysis reveals that they rely on misrepresentation of facts and fallacious reasoning. Moreover, the routine claim that all respected scientists and scientific organizations regard GE foods to be as safe as conventional ones is demonstrably false. For instance, the British Medical Association, the Public Health Association of Australia, the editors of The Lancet (a premier medical journal), and the Royal Society of Canada have all expressed concerns about the risks. Further, although a substantial number of well-conducted studies published in peer-reviewed journals have detected statistically significant harm to the laboratory animals that consumed GE food, the proponents of these products have unjustly attacked — and deceptively described — this research. Indeed, the well-documented (and irrefutable) fact that the evidence has been systematically misrepresented attests to how strongly it raises legitimate concerns, because if it were truly supportive of safety, there would have been no need to distort it. The degree of risk is even more striking when bioengineering is examined from the perspective of computer science. While computer scientists have gained substantial knowledge about the inescapable risks of altering complex information systems, and established precautionary measures for managing those risks, the biotechnicians have routinely disregarded this knowledge and violated the related precautionary principles — despite the fact that the cellular information systems they reconfigure are far bigger, far more complex, and far less understood. Indeed, compared to the meticulous manner in which software engineers revise life-critical information systems that they themselves have created, the radical way in which biotechnicians have been altering complex cellular information systems stands out as not merely risky, but reckless. Steven Druker is a public interest attorney who founded the Alliance for Bio-Integrity and, as its executive director, initiated a lawsuit that forced the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to divulge its files on genetically engineered (GE) foods. This revealed that politically influenced administrators had covered up the extensive warnings of their own scientists about the abnormal risks, misrepresented the facts, and then allowed these novel products onto the market without requiring the testing that’s mandated by federal food safety law. He is a prominent commentator on the risks and regulatory issues of GE foods and has served on the food safety panels at conferences conducted by the National Research Council and the Food and Drug Administration; been a featured speaker at symposia at the British House of Commons and the National Congress of Brazil and at press conferences sponsored by the Brazilian Medical Association, the Swedish Consumers Association, and concerned members of the European Parliament; and appeared on numerous television and radio programs — and been featured in numerous newspaper and magazine articles — across the globe. He has been invited to speak at many universities (including Harvard, Columbia, Cornell, and the University of Copenhagen) and has met with government officials world-wide, including the UK’s Environmental Minister, Canada’s Health Minister, and the heads of food safety for the UK, France, Ireland, and Australia. In addition, he was invited to confer at the White House Executive Offices with an interagency task force of President Clinton’s Council on Environmental Quality. His influential book, Altered Genes Twisted Truth: How the Venture to Genetically Engineer Our Food Has Subverted Science, Corrupted Government, and Systematically Deceived the Public, was released in March 2015 with a foreword by Jane Goodall hailing it as “without doubt one of the most important books of the last 50 years.” Among the other scientists who have praised it are David Schubert, a professor and laboratory director at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies, who has called it “incisive, insightful, and truly outstanding”; and Joseph Cummins, Professor Emeritus of Genetics at the University of Western Ontario, who extolled it as “a landmark” that “should be required reading in every university biology course.” Visit the Silicon Valley Health Institute (aka Smart Life Forum) at http://www.svhi.com Silicon Valley Health Institute Smart Life Forum Palo Alto

The Essential Universe: Neil deGrasse Tyson Books, Quotes, Education (2017)
 
02:59:54
Neil deGrasse Tyson (/dəˈɡræs/; born October 5, 1958) is an American astrophysicist, author, and science communicator. Since 1996, he has been the Frederick P. Rose Director of the Hayden Planetarium at the Rose Center for Earth and Space in New York City. The center is part of the American Museum of Natural History, where Tyson founded the Department of Astrophysics in 1997 and has been a research associate in the department since 2003. Tyson studied at Harvard University, the University of Texas at Austin and Columbia University. From 1991 to 1994 he was a postdoctoral research associate at Princeton University. In 1994, he joined the Hayden Planetarium as a staff scientist and the Princeton faculty as a visiting research scientist and lecturer. In 1996, he became director of the planetarium and oversaw its $210-million reconstruction project, which was completed in 2000. From 1995 to 2005, Tyson wrote monthly essays in the "Universe" column for Natural History magazine, some of which were later published in his books Death by Black Hole (2007) and Astrophysics for People in a Hurry (2017). During the same period, he wrote a monthly column in Star Date magazine, answering questions about the universe under the pen name "Merlin". Material from the column appeared in his books Merlin's Tour of the Universe (1998) and Just Visiting This Planet (1998). Tyson served on a 2001 government commission on the future of the U.S. aerospace industry, and on the 2004 Moon, Mars and Beyond commission. He was awarded the NASA Distinguished Public Service Medal in the same year. From 2006 to 2011, he hosted the television show NOVA ScienceNow on PBS. Since 2009, Tyson hosted the weekly podcast StarTalk. A spin-off, also called StarTalk, began airing on National Geographic in 2015. In 2014, he hosted the television series Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey, a successor to Carl Sagan's 1980 series Cosmos: A Personal Voyage. The U.S. National Academy of Sciences awarded Tyson the Public Welfare Medal in 2015 for his "extraordinary role in exciting the public about the wonders of science." As a science communicator, Tyson regularly appears on television, radio, and various other media outlets. He has been a regular guest on The Colbert Report, and host Stephen Colbert refers to him in his comedic book I Am America (And So Can You!), noting in his chapter on scientists that most scientists are "decent, well-intentioned people", but, presumably tongue-in-cheek, that "Neil DeGrasse [sic] Tyson is an absolute monster."[88] He has appeared numerous times on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. He has made appearances on Late Night with Conan O'Brien, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, and The Rachel Maddow Show.[89] He served as one of the central interviewees on the various episodes of the History Channel science program, The Universe. Tyson participated on the NPR radio quiz program Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me! in 2007 and 2015.[90] He has appeared several times on Real Time with Bill Maher, and he was also featured on an episode of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? as the ask-the-expert lifeline.[91] He has spoken numerous times on the Philadelphia morning show, Preston and Steve, on 93.3 WMMR, as well as on SiriusXM's Ron and Fez and The Opie and Anthony Show. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neil_deGrasse_Tyson Image By Norwegian University of Science and Technology [CC BY-SA 2.0 (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/2.0)], via Wikimedia Commons

Rachel Green (Johns Hopkins U., HHMI) 1: Protein synthesis: a high fidelity molecular event
 
43:06
https://www.ibiology.org/biochemistry/protein-synthesis/ Talk Overview: In her first talk, Green provides a detailed look at protein synthesis, or translation. Translation is the process by which nucleotides, the “language” of DNA and RNA, are translated into amino acids, the “language” of proteins. Green begins by describing the components needed for translation; mRNA, tRNA, ribosomes, and the initiation, elongation, and termination factors. She then explains the roles of these players in ensuring accuracy during the initiation, elongation, termination and recycling steps of the translation process. By comparing translation in bacteria and eukaryotes, Green explains that it is possible to determine which components and steps are highly conserved and predate the divergence of different kingdoms on the tree of life, and which are more recent adaptations. Green’s second talk focuses on work from her lab investigating how ribosomes detect defective mRNAs and trigger events leading to the degradation of the bad RNA and the incompletely translated protein product and to the recycling of the ribosome components. Working in yeast and using a number of biochemical and genetic techniques, Green’s lab showed that the protein Dom34 is critical for facilitating ribosome release from the short mRNAs that result from mRNA cleavage. Experiments showed that Dom34-mediated rescue of ribosomes from short mRNAs is an essential process for cell survival in higher eukaryotes. Speaker Biography: Rachel Green received her BS in chemistry from the University of Michigan. She then moved to Harvard to pursue her PhD in the lab of Jack Szostak where she worked on designing catalytic RNA molecules and investigating their implications for the evolution of life. As a post-doctoral fellow at the University of California, Santa Cruz, Green began to study how the ribosome translates mRNA to protein with such accuracy. Currently, Green is a Professor of Molecular Biology and Genetics at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and an Investigator of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. Research in her lab continues to focus on the ribosome and factors involved in the fidelity of eukaryotic and prokaryotic translation. Green is the recipient of a Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine Graduate Teaching Award as well as the recipient for numerous awards for her research. She was elected to the National Academy of Sciences in 2012.
