Winogradsky Column: Microbial Ecology in a Bottle

This interactive module consists of a virtual Winogradsky column, which can be used to explore the diversity of microbes, microbial metabolic strategies, and geochemical gradients found in sediments.

Genetic Mutations and Disease

This interactive module explores how mutations arise in germline and somatic cells. It also shows how these mutations can lead to genetic conditions, such as cystic fibrosis and cancer.

Virus Explorer

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

Interactive Assessment for The Birth and Death of Genes

A number of questions are embedded within the short film The Making of the Fittest: The Birth and Death of Genes, which illustrates how gene duplications and mutations have led to remarkable physiological adaptations in Antarctic fish.

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.

Vertebrate Circulatorium

This interactive module explores the circulatory systems of major vertebrate groups to gain insights into their evolution.

Exploring Transitional Fossils

This interactive module allows students to examine fossils of fish, tetrapods (four-limbed animals), and their transitional forms.

Dengue Virus

This model shows the structure of dengue virus, which causes dengue fever.

Nodamura Virus

This model shows the structure of Nodamura virus, a type of nodavirus.

Rhinovirus

This model shows the structure of rhinovirus, which causes the common cold.

Deep History of Life on Earth
