Living Together

This activity explores images of the bobtail squid, which serve as phenomena for learning about symbiosis and interspecies interactions.

Cell Division and Cancer Risk

This activity guides the analysis of a published scientific figure from a study that investigated how random mutations during cell division can contribute to cancer.

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.

The Eukaryotic Cell Cycle and Cancer

This interactive module explores the phases, checkpoints, and protein regulators of the cell cycle. The module also shows how mutations in genes that encode cell cycle regulators can lead to the development of cancer.

Mutations in Cancer

This video provides an overview of the types of genes that, when mutated, can lead to the development of cancer.

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.

The Guide: A Biologist in Gorongosa

This film is set in war-torn Gorongosa National Park in Mozambique, a protected area that has been the subject of a large-scale restoration project. The film tells the story of a young man from the local community who discovers a passion for science after meeting world-renowned biologist E.O.

Cancer as a Genetic Disease

In this talk, biomedical scientist Charles Sawyers discusses how understanding the mutations that cause cancer can guide the development of targeted drug therapies.

From Cancer Genomics to Cancer Drugs

In this talk, biomedical scientist Charles Sawyers discusses how genetic data reveal common mutations in cancer and can help uncover shared genetic mechanisms among different cancer types.
