Exploring Biomass Pyramids

This interactive module allows students to collect and analyze data from a virtual river to construct biomass and energy pyramids.

BiomeViewer

This interactive module explores biomes, climate, biodiversity, and human impacts around the globe and at different times.

Exploring Trophic Cascades

This interactive module explores examples of how changes in one species can affect species at other trophic levels and ultimately the entire ecosystem.

Rescuing Species

In this talk, biologist Elizabeth Hadly discusses how to preserve genetic diversity that is threatened by habitat loss.

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.

Sizing up the Brain Gene by Gene

In this talk, biomedical scientist Christopher Walsh discusses how DNA sequencing technology has led to a better understanding of the genes involved in brain development.

Decoding the Autism Puzzle

In this talk, biomedical scientist Christopher Walsh discusses how DNA sequencing techniques have led to a better understanding of the genetic basis of autism.

From Cancer Genomics to Cancer Drugs

In this talk, biomedical scientist Charles Sawyers discusses how genetic data reveal common mutations in cancer and can help uncover shared genetic mechanisms among different cancer types.

Tissue Regeneration in Animals

This tutorial describes how animals differ in their abilities to heal wounds and regenerate lost body parts or damaged tissues.
