The Science of an Extreme Animal Athlete

This video follows biologist Shane Campbell-Staton, who is studying the adaptations that allow deer mice living at high elevations to stay warm and active during the winter.

Photosynthesis

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

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.

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.

The Geologic Carbon Cycle

This animation explores how carbon enters the atmosphere and can be removed through a series of chemical reactions.

Coding Sequences in DNA

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

Human Genome Sequencing

This animation shows how the Human Genome Project sequenced the human genome, which contains over 3 billion nucleotides.

Triplet Code

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

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.
