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.
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.
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.
