The Immune System

This interactive module introduces the anatomy of the immune system and walks through the timeline of a typical immune response. 

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.

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.

The Geologic Carbon Cycle

This animation explores how carbon enters the atmosphere and can be removed through a series of chemical reactions.

Bacterial Quorum Sensing

This tutorial describes how bacteria communicate by a process known as quorum sensing, as shown through a series of experiments involving genetically engineered bioluminescent bacteria.

Symbiotic Bioluminescence

This tutorial describes the symbiosis between the Hawaiian bobtail squid and bioluminescent bacteria.

The LUX Operon

This animation explores the LUX operon, a set of five genes that are involved in bacterial bioluminescence.

Cone Snail Toxins and Paralysis

This animation shows how cone snail toxins cause paralysis by blocking signal transmission at the synapse between neuron and muscle.
