This book is grounded in an evolutionary basis and includes exciting features that highlight careers in the biological sciences and everyday applications of the concepts at hand. Includes an innovative art program that incorporates critical thinking and clicker questions to help students understand—and apply—key concepts.
Concepts of Biology is designed for the introductory biology course for nonmajors taught at most two- and four-year colleges. The scope, sequence, and level of the program are designed to match typical course syllabi.
Inside the Cell is a science education booklet that explores the interior design of cells and vividly describes the processes that take place within its organelles and structures. Each chapter includes a few review questions.
The New Genetics, a science education booklet published by National Institute of General Medical Sciences, explains the role of genes in health and disease, the basics of DNA and its molecular cousin RNA, and new directions in genetic research.
The Cell: An Image Library™ is a freely accessible, easy-to-search, public repository of reviewed and annotated images, videos, and animations of cells from a variety of organisms, showcasing cell architecture, intracellular functionalities, and both normal and abnormal processes.
In this interactive activity from the Dolan DNA Learning Center, learn about what clones are, the technique that makes cloning of organisms possible, and some animals that scientists have successfully cloned over the years.
This section of the website, Biology Online, aims to promote the understanding of the many various aspects of biology. Progressively, the subjects covered will become more related to one another, meaning that the 'bigger picture' can be obtained over time by piecing the tutorials together.
In this interactive activity adapted from the Dolan DNA Learning Center, examine the techniques geneticists use to read a sequence of DNA fragments. Sequencing enables scientists to analyze DNA and ultimately piece together the genomes of living organisms.
PhET provides fun, interactive, research-based simulations of physical phenomena for free. The open source simulations are written in Java, Flash or HTML5, and can be run online or downloaded to your computer
