Exploring Biomass Pyramids

This interactive module allows students to collect and analyze data from a virtual river to construct biomass and energy pyramids.

Genetic Mutations and Disease

This interactive module explores how mutations arise in germline and somatic cells. It also shows how these mutations can lead to genetic conditions, such as cystic fibrosis and cancer.

Virus Explorer

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

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.

Lizard Evolution Virtual Lab

This interactive, modular lab explores the evolution of the anole lizards in the Caribbean through data collection and analysis.

Dengue Virus

This model shows the structure of dengue virus, which causes dengue fever.

Nodamura Virus

This model shows the structure of Nodamura virus, a type of nodavirus.

Rhinovirus

This model shows the structure of rhinovirus, which causes the common cold.

Stickleback Evolution Virtual Lab

This interactive, modular lab explores how stickleback fish and fossil specimens are used to study evolutionary processes, with an emphasis on data collection and analysis.

Stopping Mosquito-Borne Disease

This tutorial introduces students to vector-borne disease with a focus on dengue fever, which is transmitted by mosquitoes. Students also learn about strategies designed to stop the spread of disease by interfering with the mosquito life cycle.

Virochip DNA Microarray

This tutorial describes how DNA microarrays called Virochips are designed to detect known viruses and discover new ones.
