Journal of Visualized Experiments (JoVE)

The Library has subscribed to new series of the Journal of Visualized Experiments (JoVE):

 
JoVE Genetics publishes video articles demonstrating experimental approaches to investigate gene function and regulation. This includes methods to study gene expression, mutagenesis, epigenetics, genetic determinants of development, genetic disorders, population genetics and evolution.

JoVE Biochemistry publishes experiments that investigate the structure, function, and interactions of biological molecules. The experiments demonstrate methods to study nucleic acids, proteins, carbohydrates and lipids as well as enzyme function, protein folding, molecular interactions and biochemical reactions.

JoVE Cancer Research illustrates experimental approaches in biomedical research and clinical practice aimed at understanding, detecting, treating and preventing cancer. The video articles in this section demonstrate methods to study the cellular and molecular mechanisms of cancer, animal models of cancer research, development of new therapies and diagnostics, tumor imaging, chemical and radiation treatments, surgical procedures and improvements in therapy.  

JoVE Developmental Biology publishes research methodologies in the field of developmental biology. This includes methods that are used to study biological development in vitro and in vivo at the molecular, cellular, tissue, organ and whole organism levels.

Essentials of Physical Examinations I provides the foundation for performing physical exams by introducing several universal concepts such as inspection, palpation, percussion, and auscultation. Essentials of Physical Examinations II includes more specialized examinations, from abdominal exams, male rectal exam, to breast assessment and evaluation of female pelvic structures.
