University for development. A Colombian alternative

, : University for development. A Colombian alternative. Documento de Trabajo, Instituto Ajijic sobre Educacion Internacional, Mexico (312.07): 25

The Foundation for the Application and Teaching of the Sciences (FUNDAEC) in Colombia is a unique institution for the dissemination and implementation of rural development strategies. It has innovated an educational programme named "engineering for rural well-being". The purpose of this course is to provide students with the scientific skills necessary to engage in new forms of action, which are in turn necessary for the improvement of the quality of life in their communities.

In order to gain insights on the nuclear organization in mammalian cells, we characterized ultrastructurally nuclear bodies (NBs) previously described as fluorescent foci. Using high resolution immunoelectron microscopy (I-EM), we provide evidence...
