Cancer Cell Invasion

This activity explores an image of tumor cells invading muscle tissue, which serves as a phenomenon for learning about cancer, mutations, and cell division.

Role of p53 in the Cell Cycle

This activity analyzes a published scientific figure from a study that investigated the role of p53 in cell cycle regulation.

Thermoregulation in Dinosaurs

This activity guides the analysis of a published scientific figure from a study that explored how dinosaurs may have regulated their body temperatures.

How Did Dinosaurs Regulate Body Temperature?

This activity extends concepts covered in the film The Origin of Birds. Students analyze and interpret data from a scientific paper to explore thermoregulation in living and extinct animals, including dinosaurs.  

Synchronized Division

This activity explores an image of early embryonic cells, which serves as a phenomenon for learning about cell division and development.

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.

Mutations in Cancer

This video provides an overview of the types of genes that, when mutated, can lead to the development of cancer.

How Tumors Grow

This animation shows how a tumor forms, recruits blood vessels, and enters metastasis.

Meiosis

This animation shows how meiosis, the form of cell division unique to egg and sperm production, can give rise to sperm that carry either an X or a Y chromosome.
