Covalent Bonds

      School: MIT   Lecture Title: Covalent Bonds   Lecture Summary: Processor Nicole DeNisco describes a covalent bond as a chemical bond that involves the sharing of electron pairs between atoms. These electron pairs are known as shared pairs or bonding pairs, and the stable balance of attractive and repulsive forces between atoms, […]

Constructing a Recombinant DNA Library

      School: MIT   Lecture Title: Constructing and Screening a Recombinant DNA Library   Lecture Summary: Professor Eric Lander’s overview on Recombinant DNA (rDNA) molecules are DNA molecules formed by laboratory methods of genetic recombination (such as molecular cloning) to bring together genetic material from multiple sources, creating sequences that would not otherwise […]

Mendel’s Laws

      School: MIT   Lecture Title: Mendel’s Laws   Lecture Summary: Eric Lander explains how Mendel discovered that, when he crossed purebred white flower and purple flower pea plants (the parental or P generation), the result was not a blend. Rather than being a mix of the two, the offspring (known as the […]
