Coloration in Vertebrates

This activity explores images of animals with a mutation that affects coloration, which serve as phenomena for learning about skin color genetics and evolution.

Photosynthesis

This multipart animation series explores the process of photosynthesis and the structures that carry it out.

White-Nose Syndrome

This activity explores images of bats with an infectious fungal disease, which serve as phenomena for learning about population dynamics and disease impacts.

The Wolves of Isle Royale

Serengeti Wildebeest Population Regulation

This activity analyzes a published scientific figure from a study in Serengeti National Park, Tanzania. In this study, scientists investigated how the eradication of rinderpest disease led to a boom in the wildebeest population.

Cystic Fibrosis Mechanism and Treatment

This animation shows how mutations in an ion channel protein lead to the genetic disease cystic fibrosis. The animation also discusses how research on this protein has been used to develop treatments for the disease.

“Fixing” Gene Expression

In this hands-on activity, students review the steps of eukaryotic gene expression and learn how this knowledge can be used to treat different genetic conditions. The activity reinforces concepts covered in the Click & Learn “Central Dogma and Genetic Medicine.”
