Photosynthesis

This multipart animation series explores the process of photosynthesis and the structures that carry it out.

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.

Cystic Fibrosis Mechanism and Treatment

This animation shows how mutations in an ion channel protein lead to the genetic disease cystic fibrosis. The animation also discusses how research on this protein has been used to develop treatments for the disease.

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.

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.

Mutations in Cancer

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

BCR-ABL

This model shows the structure of the protein BCR-ABL, which causes a type of cancer called chronic myeloid leukemia.
