This interactive module explores biomes, climate, biodiversity, and human impacts around the globe and at different times.

Interactive Assessment for The Day the Mesozoic Died

Several questions are embedded within the short film The Day the Mesozoic Died, which tells the story of the scientific quest to explain one of the greatest, long-standing scientific mysteries: the sudden disappearance of the dinosaurs at the end of the Cretaceous period.

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.

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.

Symbiotic Bioluminescence

This tutorial describes the symbiosis between the Hawaiian bobtail squid and bioluminescent bacteria.

Bacterial Quorum Sensing

This tutorial describes how bacteria communicate by a process known as quorum sensing, as shown through a series of experiments involving genetically engineered bioluminescent bacteria.

Electrical Activity of Neurons

This tutorial describes how neurons generate action potentials, and how scientists measure neuronal activity and record the firing of individual neurons.
