By HHMI BioInteractive
This animation shows how a cell infected by a virus signals cytotoxic T cells to destroy itself.
The p53 Gene and Cancer
This tutorial describes the structure and function of the p53 protein, how its activity is regulated in cells, and how mutant versions of p53 can lead to cancer.
Cystic Fibrosis Mechanism and Treatment
This animation shows how mutations in an ion channel protein lead to the genetic disease cystic fibrosis. The animation also discusses how research on this protein has been used to develop...
Sex Verification Testing of Athletes
This interactive module explores the biology of sex determination and development in humans, set against the backdrop of the different sex testing policies implemented throughout sports history.
The Biology of Skin Color
This film explores the hypothesis that different tones of skin color in humans arose as adaptations to the intensity of ultraviolet radiation in different parts of the world.
