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.

Role of p53 in the Cell Cycle

This activity analyzes a published scientific figure from a study that investigated the role of p53 in cell cycle regulation.

Cancer Cell Invasion

This activity explores an image of tumor cells invading muscle tissue, which serves as a phenomenon for learning about cancer, mutations, and cell division.

Mutations in Cancer

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

Synchronized Division

This activity explores an image of early embryonic cells, which serves as a phenomenon for learning about cell division and development.

Meiosis

This animation shows how meiosis, the form of cell division unique to egg and sperm production, can give rise to sperm that carry either an X or a Y chromosome.

How Tumors Grow

This animation shows how a tumor forms, recruits blood vessels, and enters metastasis.

Teaching Cell Biology and Genetics Using Cancer

This playlist can be used to teach several core topics in cell biology and genetics by connecting students with case studies and multimedia resources about cancer. It can be used in undergraduate biology courses.
