Metabarcoding

This video describes the technology of metabarcoding, which allows scientists to determine herbivore diets based on the sequences of plant DNA extracted from animal dung.

Your Inner Fish

This film explores how the genetic and anatomical legacy of a fish can be seen today in the human body.

Your Inner Reptile

This film explores what our hair, teeth, and hearing reveal about our evolution from ancient reptilian ancestors.

The Origin of Species: Lizards in an Evolutionary Tree

This film explores the adaptation of anole lizards (genus Anolis) to habitats common across the islands of the Caribbean. The anoles are excellent examples of adaptive radiation, convergent evolution, and speciation through reproductive isolation.

The Day the Mesozoic Died

This film 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.

Sanger Sequencing

This animation illustrates Sanger sequencing, one of the earliest methods used to sequence DNA.

Shotgun Sequencing

This animation illustrates shotgun sequencing, a method that was used to sequence the human genome.

Triplet Code

This animation describes how many nucleotides encode a single amino acid, which is a key part of the genetic code.

Coding Sequences in DNA

This animation describes how only a small part of the human genome directly codes for proteins.
