This interactive module explores the diversity of viruses based on structure, genome type, host range, transmission mechanism, replication cycles, and vaccine availability.

Interactive Assessment for The Birth and Death of Genes

A number of questions are embedded within the short film The Making of the Fittest: The Birth and Death of Genes, which illustrates how gene duplications and mutations have led to remarkable physiological adaptations in Antarctic fish.

Interactive Assessment for The Day the Mesozoic Died

Several questions are embedded within the short film The Day the Mesozoic Died, which tells the story of the scientific quest to explain one of the greatest, long-standing scientific mysteries: the sudden disappearance of the dinosaurs at the end of the Cretaceous period.

Vertebrate Circulatorium

This interactive module explores the circulatory systems of major vertebrate groups to gain insights into their evolution.

BCR-ABL: Protein Structure and Function

This tutorial describes the structure and function of the cancer-causing protein BCR-ABL. It also shows how drugs targeting this protein can help treat chronic myeloid leukemia (CML), a cancer of the white blood cells.

Gleevec-Resistant BCR-ABL

This model shows a mutated form of the cancer-causing protein BCR-ABL that is resistant to the drug Gleevec.

BCR-ABL

This model shows the structure of the protein BCR-ABL, which causes a type of cancer called chronic myeloid leukemia.

Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP)

This model shows the structure of ATP, a molecule that provides energy for cellular processes, including protein phosphorylation.
