Welcome to the old web site for the DNA Repair lectures in RPN530, Oncology for Scientists, at Roswell Park Cancer Institute
The RPN530 lectures on DNA repair are now being given by Professor David Kowalski. Current versions of those lectures are available at http://www.acsu.buffalo.edu/~kowalsk/dnarepair/. The following information was current at the end of 2006 and is provided for reference.
The lectures for RPN530 on October 26 and 31, 2006, are now available.
This web site contains the following pages. Each of these pages contains links to all the other pages at its bottom.
- The Home Page link will bring you back to this page
- The Lectures link will bring you to the text of my lectures on DNA repair of October 26 and 31, 2006.
- These lecture notes are illustrated, but there are some minor differences between the illustrations accompanying the lecture notes and the slides I showed in class. For the slides I showed in class, go to the PDF Files link.
- The PDF Files link will bring you to a page from which you can download files with the slides I presented in my lectures on 10/26/06 and 10/31/06. Since they are in PDF format, these slides will print with higher resolution (more smoothly; without obvious pixelation) than the bit-mapped illustrations in my lecture notes.
- The Ask the Instructor link will bring you to information on reaching me by telephone, FAX or e-mail, so that you can ask me a question.
- The Questions and Answers link will show you a list of questions asked by other students, with their answers. When you ask me a question, you can indicate whether or not you want your question (and its answer) added to this publicly available list.
- The Self-Help Exams link will bring you to a set of computer-generated multiple choice exams that you can take on your own (but you have to be connected to this web site) to find out which aspects of DNA Repair you need to study in order to do well on the real exam questions that I'll ask.
- The Questions Asked on Previous Exams link will show you the questions I've asked on previous DNA Repair exams, along with their answers. Note that, as a consequence of rapid progress in this field, some of the questions and some of the answers may be out of date. Nevertheless, taking a look at these questions will show you the type of question I'm likely to ask on your exam.
- The Huberman Lab Home Page link will bring you to my lab's home page (in a new window).
If you wish to print my lecture notes and slides, then I recommend that you not waste the resources of a color printer on my lecture notes, because the illustrations are in low resolution bit-mapped format. Print the lecture notes in black and white. The same images are available in vector format within the appropriate PDF files, and those vector-format images will print at the highest resolution of your printer. In other words, the images in the PDF files will look much better after printing than will the images accompanying the lecture notes.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
The list of links shown below will appear at the bottom of every page of this web site, which should allow you to easily navigate between pages.
