Understanding Global Change

This interactive module allows students and educators to build models that explain how the Earth system works. The Click & Learn can be used to show how Earth is affected by human activities and natural phenomena.

Virus Explorer

This interactive module explores the diversity of viruses based on structure, genome type, host range, transmission mechanism, and vaccine availability.

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.

Dengue Virus

This model shows the structure of dengue virus, which causes dengue fever.

Nodamura Virus

This model shows the structure of Nodamura virus, a type of nodavirus.

Rhinovirus

This model shows the structure of rhinovirus, which causes the common cold.

Paleoclimate: A History of Change

This interactive module examines Earth’s past and present climate, highlighting the effects of two important factors: solar radiation and the composition of the atmosphere.

Stopping Mosquito-Borne Disease

This tutorial introduces students to vector-borne disease with a focus on dengue fever, which is transmitted by mosquitoes. Students also learn about strategies designed to stop the spread of disease by interfering with the mosquito life cycle.

Virochip DNA Microarray

This tutorial describes how DNA microarrays called Virochips are designed to detect known viruses and discover new ones.

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.
