What is DNA testing

DNA paternity testing is a complex scientific process, carried out on a simple mouth swab, which can positively identify relationships between people. Most commonly it is used to establish if a man is the true biological father of a child. DNA paternity testing is also often referred to simply as a DNA test, a paternity test or DNA testing. It was developed by Sir Alec Jeffreys at the University of Leicester in 1985. Cellmark became the UK's first private DNA paternity testing laboratory in 1987. DNA (Deoxyribonucleic Acid) is the body's genetic 'blueprint'. It is a long thread-like molecule which carries the "genetic code" that determines our individual characteristics. DNA is found in almost all of the billions of cells that make up our body. Every child inherits a unique mixture of DNA from its parents so, except for identical twins, no two people in the world have exactly the same genetic code.

Snell Helmet Testing with LabVIEW and CompactDAQ

viroadshow.blogspot.com The Snell Memorial Foundation works to make sure the helmets we use in transportation and sports are made according to the specs required to protect our heads when accidents happen. As a memorial to Pete, a group of scientists, physicians, racing colleagues and friends teamed together in a dedicated effort to promote research, education, testing and development of standards geared to improve the effectiveness of automotive racing helmets. Through their work, the Snell Memorial Foundation was established in 1957. Reading their list of tests will make me think twice before my next ride on a two-wheeler! Impact Test Positional Stability (Roll-Off) Test Dynamic Retention Test Chin Bar Test Shell Penetration Test Faceshield Penetration Test Flame Resistance Test This video was made for NI Week 2006 as an example CompactDAQ application. I wanted to post it because it (your helmet working when you need it) is one of those things that's easy to take for granted. Many thanks to Snell and the good work they do. [ go to Youtube.com ]

Animal Testing

**PLEASE READ DESCRIPTION!** I made this video this video to demonstrate the horrors of animal testing and let people see how horrible it truly is. And for those of you who think we need animal testing... let me share a little information... 1. How do we know for sure if make-up or medicine will work on a human if it works on a dog or monkey? Do they have the same DNA as us? NO! In fact there have been hundreds of case where people have gotten hurt, severily ill, or even died because the medicine or make-up they used had worked fine with animals, but proved fatal to humans. 2. Some people think that animal testing is the only way to test certain products. This is false! Just think for a second.... many companies today don't test on animals. If they can do it, can other companies as well? PS If you would like a list of the companies that still test on animals go to this site: www.thevegetariansite.com *IMPORTANT NOTE* I do not own any of these pictures or the website above.

Testing on Animals is Fundamentally Wrong: UK's National Anti-Vivisection Society-3

Today's Stop Animal Cruelty program features the conclusion of a two-part series on the sickening practice of using animals in laboratory experiments. Sadly, testing on animals occurs in the cosmetics, defense, pharmaceutical, and a number of other industries. It is estimated that globally 100 million animals die needlessly each year in experiments. The National Anti-Vivisection Society, the world's first organization to campaign against the practice, was founded in 1875 by the great British humanitarian Frances Power Cobbe, who published leaflets and articles opposing experimentation and gained the support of many prominent figures of her day. The current Chief Executive of the organization, Ms. Jan Creamer, recently spoke with Supreme Master Television about the ghastly nature of animal testing and why animal-free research is superior in all respects. On last week's program we learned that countries around the world are increasingly moving toward non-animal based testing methods in medical research. Ms. Creamer now addresses related developments in academia... [ go to Youtube.com ]

INFORUM Genomics Panel (5/19/09)

Personal Genomic Testing Linda Avey, Co-founder, 23andMe Daniel Ballon, Fellow, Technology Studies, Pacific Research Institute David Magnus, Associate Professor, Stanford University School of Medicine Mark Gerstein, Albert Williams Professor of Biomedical Informatics, Molecular Biophysics & Biochemistry, Computer Science, Yale University Janet Rae-Dupree, Technology and Science Writer, Unboxed Media; Senior Editor, US News & World Report - Moderator Personal genomic testing (the analysis of the DNA of individuals) is now available for less than $400. The consequences of personal genetic testing are often debated, with advocates arguing that genetic data can lead to improved health care and critics warning that consumers may be unduly worried upon learning results. California regulations impose conditions on firms providing personal genomic testing. This symposium will examine genomic testings technology, its ramifications, government regulation of the industry, and whether individuals should have their genome analyzed. [ go to Youtube.com ]

The Path to Unit Testing Happiness

Spend an hour with Oracle PL/SQL expert Steven Feuerstein and explore the code-testing challenges facing PL/SQL developers. He will demonstrate how the new Quest Code Tester for Oracle dramatically simplifies testing because it: - Automates the unit testing process to greatly increase the number of tests defined and running on the application code base - Executes tests with the press of a button and visually presents the automatically generated results - Enables deep insight on test results and the development process through an in-depth repository and a rich reporting interface - Generates numerous test cases using pre-defined test data groups and quick-build scenarios, leaving more time to write application code - Improves the quality of code by finding more bugs, faster than ever.

Domain Marketing Site - Keyword Testing Techniques

Some people spend so much time and money testing and re-testing keywords to get the ideal combination that builds traffic using applications like Google AdWords, but there is a better way. One of the strategies that we have used successfully is to build multiple web sites with multiple domain names to test similar branding strategies to see which works best. With this technique, you can put your strategies in place once, and then view the results over a period of months while watching how keyword use on the Internet changes, and it doesn't test against just one search engine, it tests effectiveness between them all. The Domain Marketing Site was built to accommodate this unique and effective testing process. It is a great low-cost tool for Search Engine Optimizers and it builds value for the domains while the tool is being used. [ go to Youtube.com ]

23andMe Genetic Testing: My Experience

With a history of certain cancers and diseases in my family, I very much stress early prevention and transparency with my doctor. However, in order to get early testing one usually requires proof of 2 blood family members who also had said health issues. Because my parents are both immigrants, its very difficult to get in touch with their family members. My only choice seemed to be genetic testing. One of Google's founders' wife started a genetic testing company called 23andme (which google also invests in). Dispite the various privacy concerns, I still signed up and tried it. Check out my experience trying out the kit, share your experiences with me, and follow me through my journey. [ go to Youtube.com ]

Dog IQ Test

Winston does an IQ test and scored 30 out of 30. I found it at : www.abc.net.au This IQ test will rate your dog's adaptive intelligence- the ability to solve problems, understand language and learn social cues, like responding to a human smile. Test Rules: 1. Dog must be at least one year old, and living with you for at least 3 months 2. The tests should be like a game for your dog 3. You must remain calm, dont raise your voice, act disgusted or over excited 4. You can only do the tests once or twice for scoring purposes 5. The tests can be given separately and in any order. Because theyre mostly based on food reward it may be better to give them over a number of sessions so the dog doesnt end up full of food and tired, both of which will affect its motivation and performance, and its IQ score. Hope you like it!! Joe [ go to Youtube.com ]
