Diving Adaptations in Sea Nomads

This activity guides the analysis of a published scientific figure from a study that investigated physiological and genetic adaptations in the Bajau, a group of people who traditionally do freediving.

Skin Color and Human Evolution

This activity guides the analysis of a published scientific figure from a study that investigated genetic factors contributing to skin color differences, particularly within African populations.

Coloration in Vertebrates

This activity explores images of animals with a mutation that affects coloration, which serve as phenomena for learning about skin color genetics and evolution.

Coral Reefs and Global Warming

This activity allows students to use authentic scientific data to make claims about the threat of coral bleaching for reefs around the world.

Photosynthesis

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

Investigating Planarian Behavior and Regeneration

This activity allows students to observe their own planarian and then design an experiment to investigate how planarians regenerate. It supports viewing of the video Identifying Key Genes in Regeneration.

Sodium Channel Evolution in Electric Fish

This activity guides the analysis of a published scientific figure from a study that investigated how gene duplication contributed to the evolution of electric fish.

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.

CSI Wildlife

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

Virus Explorer

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