Metabarcoding

This video describes the technology of metabarcoding, which allows scientists to determine herbivore diets based on the sequences of plant DNA extracted from animal dung.

How Species Coexist

In this talk, ecologist Robert Pringle discusses how large herbivores can coexist by partitioning ecological niches by time, space, and diet.

Coding Sequences in DNA

This animation describes how only a small part of the human genome directly codes for proteins.

Human Genome Sequencing

This animation shows how the Human Genome Project sequenced the human genome, which contains over 3 billion nucleotides.

Sanger Sequencing

This animation illustrates Sanger sequencing, one of the earliest methods used to sequence DNA.

Shotgun Sequencing

This animation illustrates shotgun sequencing, a method that was used to sequence the human genome.

Triplet Code

This animation describes how many nucleotides encode a single amino acid, which is a key part of the genetic code.

Ubiquitin and the Proteasome

This animation shows how proteins in the cell are tagged for disposal by ubiquitin and then degraded by the proteasome.
