CSI Wildlife

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

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.

Gleevec (Imatinib)

This model shows the structure of the cancer drug Gleevec, which is used to treat chronic myeloid leukemia (CML).

Dasatinib

This model shows the structure of the cancer drug dasatinib, which is used to treat chronic myeloid leukemia (CML).

DNA Sequence Assembly

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