Transcript: The "warm" experimental group rated happiness the highest, an average rating of 8, with the control group rating happiness lower, an average of 5, and the "cool" experimental group rated happiness the lowest, with an average of 3. Control Condition Control group receives picture with white background Setting Possible Theory Possible Findings A warmer background creates a perception of greater happiness. Procedures 1. Sign informed consents 2. Assign seats alphabetically 3. Pass out both experimental and control pictures randomly, face down (random assignment) 4. Ask participants to rate happiness of person in picture on a scale of 1 to 10 (write on back of picture) 5. Participants leave 6. Collect pictures and gather data 7. Analyze data for statistical significance 8. Debrief participants 9. Repeat steps 1-8 with new random samples of students (Generalizability) Design Experiment; Pictures randomly passed out face down to participants (double-blind) using Independent Measures "Cool" Experimental Group "Warm" Experimental Group Control Group Ethics Informed consent, debriefing, limited deception Experimental Conditions Two independent groups: one receives picture with blue background, one receives picture with red background Lab Population Student ID numbers randomly selected from a pool; grade sub-groups (random selection) The Effect of Background Color on Perceived Happiness IV: Background color (Red, Blue, or White [control]) DV: Perceived happiness (scale of 1-10) If the background is a "warm" color, then the person will be perceived as happier than if the background is a "cool" color.

Transcript: DPIM mutations' background the lab's mutational strategy data from literature alpha fold predictions What is Y2H? Yeast two-hybrid screening system is a molecular biology technique used to discover and analyze protein-protein interactions and protein-DNA interactions by testing for physical interactions (ex.: binding) between two proteins or between a protein and a DNA molecule, respectively. The mutations (Pol32 permutations for Y2H assays X Pol1) we are interested in are as following: Pol32:AlphaFold predictions: predicted aligned error plot DPIM area: DED GY: confidence level of the residues according to AlphaFold: D -> A CONFIDENT E -> A CONFIDENT D -> A VERY HIGH G -> A CONFIDENT Y -> A CONFIDENT
