  • Microbiology CRACKING THE CODE: THE CONTINUING SAGA OF GENETICS An award winning series of nine classroom science videos (Grade 9 to University) that cover the history and basic concepts of genetics - from Aristotle and Mendel through to the new DNA-based world of the human genome and GM crops - in a fresh and entertaining style. Featuring original songs by Moxy Früvous Produced, written and directed by Jack Micay Major sponsor - The National Science Foundation (USA) “This video series presents this large and important subject in a novel and entertaining manner. Its catchy music and animation will engage your students’ interest and I certainly recommend it for secondary school biology classes.” - Don Galbraith, Professor Emeritus of Science and Maths, Faculty of Education, University of Toronto (Medicinema) PART 1: PEAS IN A POD This episode tells the story of genetics from ancient times to its true scientific beginnings in the 19th century. Humourous animation and other creative visuals illustrate the unsuccessful efforts of Aristotle, Darwin and others to solve the age- old puzzle of heredity. The focus then shifts to Gregor Mendel, the obscure 19th C. Austrian monk whose plant experiments laid the foundation of genetics. His laws of Random Segregation and Independent Assortment are clearly and entertainingly explained, then reinforced by a Moxy Fruvous song. Shot in England and the Czech Republic. Winner of the 2002 Chris Award for Science and Technology at the Columbus Int. Film Festival Finalist, New York Festivals 29 min.. VHS US$99.00 / DVD US$109.00 PART 2: MICROSCOPES AND MUTANTS The actions of chromosomes during mitosis, meiosis and fertilization, as discovered in 19th C. Germany, are brought to life using entertaining animation and state-of-the-art microscopic footage. These microscopic findings, together with the rediscovery of Mendel’s long lost research in 1900, gave birth to the Chromosomal Theory of Heredity. We next visit Thomas Hunt Morgan’s ‘fly room’ lab at Columbia University, where in the early 20th C. attention turned to the gene. Sex chromosomes, X-linked recessive traits, linkages, cross-overs and gene mapping are also entertainingly explained. The eugenics movement coincided with this era and it is recounted by Jan Witkowski of the Cold Spring Harbor Lab, its former headquarters, using rare archival photos and footage. Honorable Mention, 2003 Columbus Int. Film Festival 30 min.. VHS US$99.00 / DVD US$109.00
  • PART 3: THE DNA OBSESSION Beginning with its discovery in a gothic German castle, we follow the scientific surprises as DNA beat out protein, the more logical candidate, as the stuff of the gene. Joshua Lederberg pays tribute to the work of Oswald Avery, the Canadian- born scientist who proved it was DNA, and its impact on his own landmark discovery of bacterial sex. Two sets of clues led to the discovery of the double helix structure of DNA, one from physics and the other from chemistry. James Watson recounts how he and Francis Crick put these clues together for the first time. The poignant story of Rosalind Franklin, whose X-ray data they relied upon, is recounted by her closest colleague, Sir Aaron Klug. Four Nobel laureates are featured in the film, including Sydney Brenner, another founder of molecular genetics Winner of the 2004 Chris Award for Science and Technology at the Columbus Int. Film Festival 30 min.. VHS US$99.00 / DVD US$109.00 PART 4: THE GENE MACHINE We follow the steps by which the discovery of the double helix in 1953 led to the Central Dogma of how a gene produces a protein, through transcription and translation, and then to the actual cracking of the code that translates DNA codons into amino acids. We are guided by Sydney Brenner (the discover of the codon, messenger RNA and much else), Canada’s own Nobel laureate, Michael Smith (in one his last interviews), and Leroy Hood, the father of today’s high tech DNA lab. It also covers the next leap forward - recombinant DNA or genetic engineering - and the initial alarm that this caused in the 1970s among the scientists themselves, as well as the public. Once these fears were dispelled, both the biotech industry and the new revolution in DNA technology began in earnest. Also featured is Nobel laureate Joshua Lederberg. 30 min.. VHS US$99.00 / DVD US$109.00
  • PART 5: SOME NEW TRICKS WITH DNA (RELEASE DATE - SPRING 2006) The 1970s and 80s saw the invention of ingenious new ways to manipulate DNA, which remain the cornerstone of today’s genetic revolution, including the Human Genome Project. We begin with a scientist/magician demonstrating six simple tricks with DNA. Using these as building blocks, the more complex technologies of DNA fingerprinting, DNA sequencing, and PCR (the polymerase chain reaction) are explained in an easy to understand way. The excitement of this fertile period is brought to life through the personal recollections of its leading innovators. These key technologies gave scientists the first maps of the human genome, which in turn allowed them to hunt down human genes, with no prior knowledge of their location. This culminated in the 1989 discovery of the gene for cystic fibrosis, which was the finish line of for exciting international race. We are guided by Sir Alec Jeffries, the inventor of DNA fingerprinting; Hamilton Smith, who won a Nobel Prize for discovering the key tool of restriction enzymes; Michael Smith, who won a Nobel Prize for a DNA-based technique to create pinpoint mutations, and Lap-Chee Tsui, who led the Toronto team that won the race to the cystic fibrosis gene. 30 min.. VHS US$99.00 / DVD US$109.00 PART 6: READING THE BOOK OF LIFE The human genome sequence, completed in 2003, was the object of another famous race in genetics, which culminated in an historic White House press conference. The leaders of this epic effort, including Francis Collins, Craig Venter, Eric Lander, John Sulston and Sydney Brenner, explain its origins, how it was done and what it reveals so far about our book of life. The major surprise was how few genes there actually are in the human genome. We compensate by using RNA splicing to create different proteins from the same gene. Having the complete sequence at hand has greatly simplified the search for new disease genes and created a whole new way to do genetics, through genomics and bioinformatics. To illustrate all this, we focus on Chromosome 7 with its editor, Steve Scherer, and one of its most fascinating stories, that of Williams Syndrome, which produces an unusual mix of mental deficits, strengths, musical talent and affability. We meet A.J., a Williams Syndrome kid in San Diego, who plays a mean set of drums. 30 min.. VHS US$99.00 / DVD US$109.00
  • PART 7: UNDERSTANDING THE BOOK OF LIFE (RELEASE DATE - SPRING 2006) Reading our Book of Life is just the first step - the real task lies ahead in understanding it. We must learn what each gene does and how groups of genes work together to create the processes of life, and sometimes disease. In the meantime, by using the new reference sequence to analyze the genomes of many people, we will find the groups of genes that underlie important multi-genic diseases like cancer and diabetes, that remains our greatest health burden but whose complex genetic basis is not yet understood. The Cochin Jews of Israel have an unusually high incidence of asthma and provide a case study in how the power of genomics will lead to genetic tests for these common illnesses and to a new predictive and preventive form of medicine. This is discussed by leading scientists, such as Craig Venter, Leroy Hood, and Francis Collins. As well, leading philosophers discuss the social and moral risks of widespread genetic testing. We must also understand the so-called 'junk' DNA, the 95% of the genome that doesn’t code for proteins but which holds the secrets of gene control and cell development. Howard Cedar of Hebrew U. has unlocked the secret of how genes are turned off (via methylation), which allows cells to specialize. Then there is the rest of the library of life, the genomes of all other creatures, which will tell us the full story of evolution. Other experts featured include Eric Lander and John Sulston. 30 min.. VHS US$99.00 / DVD US$109.00
  • PART 8: THE SEEDS OF A NEW ERA This episode examines the science of genetically modified crops and foods. It begins by explaining, through creative animation, the actual process by which a foreign gene is introduced into a plant. It then examines the actual benefits and risks of the two types of genes currently added to GM crops - the Bt gene to fight insects and the gene that protects the plant against new, more environmentally friendly insecticides. Using documentary footage, along with animation, it defuses some of the mythology and emotion that surrounds this subject. It features Canada’s leading experts in this area, as well as farmers that grow GM crops. Also available in French. Winner of a Silver Award, 2003 WorldFest Houston Honorable Mention, 2003 Columbus Int. Film Festival 30 min.. VHS US$99.00 / DVD US$109.00 PART 9: THE SEEDS OF A CONTROVERSY In spite of the weight of scientific evidence in its favour and a decade of uneventful experience in N. America, GM crops and foods continue to engender fear, particularly in Europe. This companion piece to THE SEEDS OF A NEW ERA provides a thorough discussion of the non-scientific factors behind these fears. These include political and economic concerns about a loss of competition and choice, the psychology of risk perception and philosophical ideas about Nature. This episode also looks at future uses of GM crop technology, such as molecular farming for drugs and other valuable proteins. It also features Canada’s leading crop and food scientists, plus a number of philosophers and anti-GM critics. 30 min.. VHS US$99.00 / DVD US$109.00
  • Nursing And Medicine MEDICAL CODING – BASIC Health care in America has undergone tremendous change in the recent past, and more changes are promised for the future. These changes have resulted in an ever-increasing demand for qualified medical coders. Medical coding is far more than assigning numbers to services and diagnoses. Coders abstract information from the patient record and combine it with their knowledge of reimbursement and coding guidelines to optimize physician payment. Coders have been called the “fraud squad” because they optimize but never maximize and code only for services provided to the patient that are documented in the patient record. There is a demand for skilled coders, and you can be one of those in demand. Put your best efforts into building the foundation of your career as a Medical Coder, and you will be rewarded for a lifetime. This course is designed to teach you the basics of medical coding in an easy to learn, natural progression. You will learn things such as how to use the CPT and ICD-9-CM in coding procedures and diagnoses. You will learn about modifiers and V Codes, diagnostic coding and reporting guidelines for outpatient services and body system coding, general surgery coding, radiology coding, pathology/lab coding, medicine and you will learn about the Level II National Codes and so much more. This course includes instructor video lectures, instructor presentations, quizzes, tests, textbooks, and reference books including the CPT and ICD-9-CM books.

You will learn how to code the most common services and diagnoses in 14 of the most common areas in the medical practices. The course length and complexity of each of the 14 areas are dependent upon the complexity of coding in those areas. For example the cardiovascular system is a long complicated section as there are very complex codes and many of the common cardiovascular services are commonly provided in most outpatient settings, such as ECG and Holter monitor. There are many coding challenges in cardiology, such as coronary artery bypass graft, usually only through repeated cases cant he coder gain understanding and confidence in the cardiology coding skills. This course will help you break those specialty codes down so you can more effectively and efficiently code in each of the 14 areas of medicine. This course includes instructor video lectures, instructor presentations, quizzes, tests, worktext, and reference books including the exam preparation text for the AHIMA and AAPC certification examinations. Note: If you know you will be studying for the either the AAPC or AHIMA exam in advance we recommend that you indicate this with your order so we can send you the exam prep book that will match your exams. Those exams are; CPC and CPC-H by AAPC and CCA, CCS, and CCS-P by AHIMA Note: This program has prior approval of the American Academy of Professional Coders for 6.0 Continuing Education Units.

Working in a medical setting you will be exposed to and use these words even more everyday. Terms such as arthritis, electrocardiogram, hepatitis, and anemia describe conditions and tests that are familiar. Other medical words are more complicated, but as you work through this course you will begin to understand them even if you have never studied biology or science. This course helps you learn the meaning of the words their component parts and the individual parts of medical terms and the medical language. You will learn about the "root" of words, the "suffixes" and the all important "joining vowel". This course includes instructor video lectures, instructor presentations, quizzes, tests, and textbook. Included with the textbook is a comprehensive medical terminology resource CD.
