Photosynthesis

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

“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.”

Central Dogma and Genetic Medicine

This interactive module uses the central dogma as a model for exploring how modern molecular biology technologies can be used to treat different genetic conditions.

Viral DNA Integration

In this hands-on activity, students model how a double-stranded DNA copy of the HIV genome is integrated into the host cell DNA.

HIV Reverse Transcription and AZT

This activity allows students to model how the anti-HIV drug AZT (azidothymidine) interferes with the process of viral replication.

DNA Profiling Activity

This multipart activity is designed to give students a firm understanding of genetic profiling using short tandem repeats (STRs), which is a process used by forensics labs around the world.

BiomeViewer

This interactive module explores biomes, climate, biodiversity, and human impacts around the globe and at different times.

CSI Wildlife

This interactive module allows students to use DNA profiling and related biological concepts to solve two cases of elephant poaching.

Exploring Biomes in Gorongosa National Park

The activity introduces students to the concept of biomes, using Gorongosa National Park as a case study. Part of the activity involves exploring the Gorongosa National Park Interactive Map.

Coral Bleaching

This animation zooms into a coral reef to explore the tiny animals that build reefs, the photosynthetic algae inside their cells, and the damaging process of coral bleaching.

Activity for The Guide: A Biologist in Gorongosa

This activity explores conservation biology topics presented in the short film The Guide: A Biologist in Gorongosa. This film tells the story of Tonga Torcida, a young man who discovers his passion for science in the newly revitalized Gorongosa National Park in Mozambique.
