Photosynthesis

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

Cystic Fibrosis Mechanism and Treatment

This animation shows how mutations in an ion channel protein lead to the genetic disease cystic fibrosis. The animation also discusses how research on this protein has been used to develop treatments for the disease.

The Search for a Mutated Gene

This video describes the case of a patient with retinitis pigmentosa (RP), a progressive disease that leads to blindness, and how physician-scientist Dr. Ed Stone approached the search for the causal mutation.

Genes as Medicine

This film describes the scientific principles and the research efforts involved in the development of a gene therapy for a congenital form of blindness, and how a young patient benefited from this medical breakthrough.

How We Get Our Skin Color

This animation describes how skin color is generated by skin cells as protection against ultraviolet (UV) radiation.

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.

Mutations in Cancer

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

Sizing up the Brain Gene by Gene

In this talk, biomedical scientist Christopher Walsh discusses how DNA sequencing technology has led to a better understanding of the genes involved in brain development.
