Sex Verification Testing of Athletes

This interactive module explores the biology of sex determination and development in humans, set against the backdrop of the different sex testing policies implemented throughout sports history.

Central Dogma and Genetic Medicine

This interactive module uses the central dogma as a model for exploring how modern molecular biology technologies can be used to treat different genetic conditions.

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.

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.

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.

The p53 Gene and Cancer

This tutorial describes the structure and function of the p53 protein, how its activity is regulated in cells, and how mutant versions of p53 can lead to cancer.

Cardiology Virtual Lab

This interactive, modular lab explores the tools that doctors use to examine and diagnose patients with heart conditions.

Neurophysiology Virtual Lab

This interactive, modular lab explores techniques for identifying and recording the electrical activities of neurons, using the leech as a model organism.
