News Flash: Rice University Create Cables Made Of Nanowires That Could Replace Copper Wires.

Popular Science (9/8, Boyle) reports, "Cables made out of nanowires could be just as efficient as the copper cables we've been using for more than a century, but at a fraction of the weight, according to a new paper. Braiding billions of carbon nanotubes into a nanowire cable can efficiently replace copper in a light bulb circuit."

DNA Overview Learning Module

This category includes the DNA Overview Learning Module (Instructor guide, Participant guide and PowerPoint presentation).  The learning module provides an overview of DNA (Deoxyribonucleic acid), its role as genetic material, its molecular components and structure, and DNA replication. This information is necessary to better understand the role of microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) in DNA analysis, disease diagnostics, and gene therapy.  There are three activities that allow the participants to further explore DNA using several on-line tutorials.  An assessment is provided in the Instructor Guide.
