Central Dogma and Genetic Medicine

This interactive module uses the central dogma as a model for exploring how modern molecular biology technologies can be used to treat different genetic conditions.

Population Dynamics

This interactive simulation allows students to explore two classic mathematical models that describe how populations change over time: the exponential and logistic growth models.

CSI Wildlife

This interactive module allows students to use DNA profiling and related biological concepts to solve two cases of elephant poaching.

Sampling and Normal Distribution

This interactive simulation allows students to graph and analyze sample distributions taken from a normally distributed population.

DNA Sequence Assembly

This tutorial describes the principles of DNA sequencing and sequence assembly, and shows how they apply to different sequencing techniques.

How The Body Uses Fat
