Protein Data Bank - RCSB PDB A Structural View of Biology This resource is powered by the Protein Data Bank archive-information about the 3D shapes of proteins, nucleic acids, and complex assemblies that helps students and researchers understand all aspects of biomedicine and agriculture, from protein synthesis to health and disease. As a member of the wwPDB, the RCSB PDB curates and annotates PDB data. The RCSB PDB builds upon the data by creating tools and resources for research and education in molecular biology, structural biology, computational biology, and beyond. The Cell and its Organelles Lists of Nobel Prizes and Laureates The Cell and its Organelles Play the Incredible Megacell Game About the game Biology Animations Carnegie Mellon's Office of Technology for Education and Department of Biological Sciences create multimedia materials for teaching and learning Biology. After an analysis of a number of Biology courses was performed to identify when and how shared concepts where taught, a team of biologists, media programmers, and learning experts came together to create animations designed to improve understanding of some of the main concepts taught in Modern Biology and Biochemistry. Phosopholipid Membranes Tutorial page describing the construction and properties of Biological Membranes. Biological Membranes Biological membranes are dynamic structures composed of a diverse set of phospholipid molecules and proteins.

Center for Health and the Global Environment Here are some simple ways you can work to protect biodiversity -- and human health! Making small changes in your food, your transportation, and your home can have significant impacts. Here's how: Eat Sustainable Food Choose sustainably-harvested fish. Genomes Pages The first completed genomes from viruses, phages and organelles were deposited into the EMBL Database in the early 1980's. Since then, molecular biology's shift to obtain the complete sequences of as many genomes as possible combined with major developments in sequencing technology resulted in hundreds of complete genome sequences being added to the database, including Archaea, Bacteria and Eukaryota. These web pages give access to a large number of complete genomes, help is available to describe the layout. Whole Genome Shotgun Sequences (WGS) Methods using whole genome shotgun data are used to gain a large amount of genome coverage for an organism. WGS data for a growing number of organisms are being submitted to DDBJ/EMBL/GenBank.
The Illustrated Guide to Epigenetics Illustrations by Joe Kloc This month marks the ten-year anniversary of the sequencing of the human genome, that noble achievement underpinning the less noble sales of 23andMe's direct-to-consumer genetic tests. To commemorate the scientific occasion, we've created an illustrated introduction to one subfield of genetics likely to produce even more dubious novelty science projects someday: epigenetics. What is epigenetics?
Cracking the Code of Life by Rick Groleau Chances are you've seen an illustration of DNA's double-helix structure and even pictures of the chromosomes that comprise the human genome. But where and how does the famous double helix fit into chromosomes, and how do chromosomes relate to the human body? This exploration allows you to travel to the tiny world of DNA. Beginning with the body and ending with the atoms that make up a single DNA base, you'll be able to zoom in to 15 different levels to see DNA's relationship to us as a whole. Along the way you'll also see the intricate bending and winding that takes place within a chromosome, which allows more than five feet of DNA to fit within the nucleus of a tiny cell.
Nuclear reactor and power plant simulation Introduction This is not a lesson like the others in Radioactivity and Atomic Physics Explained but it fits in well with the lesson on nuclear power. It is a very sophisticated simulation of a pressurised water reactor (PWR), which is the most common type of nuclear power reactor in the US but not in Europe, though the principles are very similar. 49 Fascinating YouTube Videos to Learn About the Human Body As any doctor, nurse practitioner or other health care professional knows, the body is an interesting system. In many ways, it’s like a machine, with many complex parts. There is a lot to learn about the body and how it works, as well as how its different systems interact to create a larger system. Here are 49 interesting YouTube videos that can help you learn about the human body:
