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.

Living Together

This activity explores images of the bobtail squid, which serve as phenomena for learning about symbiosis and interspecies interactions.

Amylase Copy Number and Diet

This activity guides the analysis of a published scientific figure from a study that investigated whether there is a correlation between a population’s diet and copies of a certain gene.

Africa's Savanna Ecosystems

In this talk, ecologist Robert Pringle discusses how patterns and processes that occur in the savanna, a globally important biome, illustrate core concepts in ecology.

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.

Earth Systems Activity

This activity guides students through building a conceptual model of how carbon dioxide affects Earth’s climate.

From Cancer Genomics to Cancer Drugs

In this talk, biomedical scientist Charles Sawyers discusses how genetic data reveal common mutations in cancer and can help uncover shared genetic mechanisms among different cancer types.

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.
