BioInteractive Search Results Click & Learn This Click and Learn explains how DNA sequences can be used to generate such trees, and how to interpret them. West Nile virus infects mosquitoes, birds, and people—with very different consequences. Lactose tolerance, sickle cell anemia, and bitter taste perception are three examples of recently evolved human traits. Lactase persistence results from a mutation that changes how transcription factors interact, thereby affecting gene expression. This survey, developed by Horne and Ostberg, will let you determine if you are a morning or an evening person. Answer the questions in this online quiz to test your knowledge of what determines the sex of a human, a fruit fly, and a snapping turtle. Paleoanthropology provides an excellent example of the scientific process at work. Learn about the nature of vector-borne diseases, and the life cycle of the dengue vector mosquito. Learn why verifying a person's gender may be harder than you think. An exploration of current and future therapies.
Anatomy and Physiology Learning Modules - CEHD - U of M Quiz Bowl and Timed Test were retired at the end of summer 2013. Quiz Bowl had always been buggy, as many people had pointed out, and it had become difficult to maintain. It also used technology that doesn’t work on a lot of newer computers or tablets. Timed test depended on a browser add-on that both Microsoft and Apple have encouraged users to remove for security concerns. For these reasons, we took these two quizzes down at the end of the month.

2nd Biannual NGSS STEM Education Conference Download the conference schedule and a map Session 1 Arms & Arteries: Adventures in Biomechanical Engineering Looking for ways to integrate engineering into your life science and biology classes? Try biomechanical engineering! Download Session PDFs Session 2 Environmental Engineering: Life in the Bay Water Together we’ll design and build tools for exploring bay water. Session 3 Seismic Engineering Feeling a little shaky on how to teach engineering in your earth science unit? Session 4 Build a Battery of Batteries Come explore the physics and chemistry of simple batteries! Session 5 Build a Better Motor We’ll start by taking apart a spring-powered motor to see how it stores and releases energy, and then we’ll take apart a small electric motor to see how the magnets, wire coils, and electrical connections are arranged. Session 6 Wire It Up! Using a shoebox, discarded holiday lights, and some simple tools, you and your students can create and wire a model building complete with switches.
NOVA | How Cells Divide share By Rick Groleau Posted 10.09.01 NOVA Most of the time, when a cell in our bodies divides, each new cell carries a complete set of chromosomes. The cells involved with human reproduction, however, carry only half after division occurs. In this step-by-step explanation, learn about mitosis and meiosis, the two types of cell division. This feature originally appeared on the site for the NOVA program 18 Ways to Make a Baby. Background on Meiosis and Mitosis As viewed from a human perspective, nature seems to have done ingenious engineering to overcome obstacles. Asexual reproduction relies on a process called mitosis, in which the nucleus of a cell divides to create two new nuclei, each containing an identical copy of DNA. Meiosis, on the other hand, is the process by which certain sex cells are created. How exactly does meiosis halve and mix chromosomes?
