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.

How Animals Use Sound to Communicate

This interactive module explores how different animals — elephants, birds, and bats — have evolved distinct ways of using sound to communicate.

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.

Lizard Evolution Virtual Lab

This interactive, modular lab explores the evolution of the anole lizards in the Caribbean through data collection and analysis.

Sorting Finch Species

This interactive module allows students to explore concepts related to speciation by identifying which birds belong to one of two finch species.

Symbiotic Bioluminescence

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

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.

Transgenic Fly Virtual Lab

This interactive, modular lab explores the techniques used to make transgenic flies and demonstrates how these flies can be used to study gene expression.
