Exploring Biomass Pyramids

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

Exploring Trophic Cascades

This interactive module explores examples of how changes in one species can affect species at other trophic levels and ultimately the entire ecosystem.

BCR-ABL: Protein Structure and Function

This tutorial describes the structure and function of the cancer-causing protein BCR-ABL. It also shows how drugs targeting this protein can help treat chronic myeloid leukemia (CML), a cancer of the white blood cells.

BCR-ABL

This model shows the structure of the protein BCR-ABL, which causes a type of cancer called chronic myeloid leukemia.

Gleevec-Resistant BCR-ABL

This model shows a mutated form of the cancer-causing protein BCR-ABL that is resistant to the drug Gleevec.

Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP)

This model shows the structure of ATP, a molecule that provides energy for cellular processes, including protein phosphorylation.

Molecular Structure of Fat

This tutorial describes the various forms of “fat” — from a tissue, to a cell type, to a class of molecules.

How The Body Uses Fat

This tutorial explores how fat is digested, transported, stored, and used for energy.

The p53 Gene and Cancer

This tutorial describes the structure and function of the p53 protein, how its activity is regulated in cells, and how mutant versions of p53 can lead to cancer.

Teaching Ecology Using Gorongosa National Park

This playlist can be used to teach several core topics in ecology by connecting students to actual research being conducted in Gorongosa National Park in Mozambique. It can be used in general high school biology and environmental science courses.
