Citric Acid Cycle

This animation shows the reactions of the citric acid cycle, which splits off carbon atoms and generates energy-rich reduced forms of cofactor molecules. It is the first of three animations about cellular respiration.

Electron Transport Chain

This animation shows how the enzyme complexes of the electron transport chain harvest energy from cofactor molecules to pump protons across the mitochondrial membrane and establish a chemical gradient. It is the second of three animations about cellular respiration.

ATP Synthesis

This animation shows how the proton gradient across the mitochondrial membrane powers the ATP synthase enzyme to make ATP. It is the third of three animations about cellular respiration.

Biology of SARS-CoV-2

This three-part animation series explores the biology of the virus SARS-CoV-2, which has caused a global pandemic of the disease COVID-19.

The Origin of Flight: What Use Is Half a Wing?

In this video, biologist Ken Dial demonstrates that birds use their wings for more than just flying, which may help us understand how dinosaurs used their small wing-like limbs before the evolution of flight.

Your Inner Monkey

This film explores what human hands, vision, and brains reveal about our evolution from ancient primate ancestors.

Your Inner Reptile

This film explores what our hair, teeth, and hearing reveal about our evolution from ancient reptilian ancestors.

Your Inner Fish

This film explores how the genetic and anatomical legacy of a fish can be seen today in the human body.

How We Get Our Skin Color

This animation describes how skin color is generated by skin cells as protection against ultraviolet (UV) radiation.
