  • Maternal Microbiota Impacts Offspring Immune System

    Maternal Microbiota Impacts Offspring Immune System

    Data Points

    This activity analyzes a published scientific figure from a study assessing if the microbiota from a mother affects the immune systems of the developing offspring.

  • Seed Dispersal in Tropical Forests

    Seed Dispersal in Tropical Forests

    Lessons

    In this activity, students use data from published studies to understand patterns of seed dispersal and apply these ideas to the design of a conservation area.

  • Modeling Food Webs in Darién, Panama

    Modeling Food Webs in Darién, Panama

    Card Activities

    In this activity, students use cards to build model food webs and evaluate how ecological disturbances affect each trophic level using information from the citizen science website WildCam Darién.

  • Origins of Antibiotic Resistance

    Origins of Antibiotic Resistance

    Data Points

    Scientists collected bacteria from locations that had never been exposed to humans or modern antibiotics to determine if antibiotic resistance is newly evolved since the introduction of antibiotics or has evolved independently.

  • Stalking the Genetic Basis of a Trait

    Stalking the Genetic Basis of a Trait

    Lessons

    In this activity students analyze data on the expression of the tb1 gene and use it to formulate an explanation as to how a specific difference in the corn version of the gene explains the phenotype of less branching.

  • Virus Hunters: Epidemiology of Nipah Virus

    Virus Hunters: Epidemiology of Nipah Virus

    Case Studies

    In this activity, students will be exploring cases of Nipah virus (NiV) infection as an epidemiologist would, by collecting evidence and making calculations and predictions, based on scientific data.

  • What van Leeuwenhoek Saw

    What van Leeuwenhoek Saw

    Card Activities

    This hands-on activity helps students understand concepts related to building scale models by using cards of microorganisms and cells that were first visualized by Antonie van Leeuwenhoek.

  • Microbial Community Response to an Oil Spill

    Microbial Community Response to an Oil Spill

    Data Points

    Researchers monitored the succession of the microbial community in the Gulf of Mexico using data from before, during, and after the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.

  • Using Wolbachia to Suppress Mosquito Fertility

    Using Wolbachia to Suppress Mosquito Fertility

    Data Points

    In this study, researchers tested whether releasing Wolbachia-infected male Aedes albopictus (Asian tiger mosquitoes) would suppress populations of this mosquito species in their study area.

  • Root Movement

    Root Movement

    Phenomenal Images

    Students explore photos of plant cells as phenomena to explore the response of plant cells to stimuli.

  • Modeling Trophic Cascades

    Modeling Trophic Cascades

    Card Activities

    In this activity, students model trophic cascades, which are also explored in a variety of related resources, using cards of animal and plant species from seven different habitats. It is designed to illustrate the species relationships in a food chain and the effect of predators on the trophic levels below.

    Viral Lysis and Budding

    Labs & Demos

    This activity outlines two demonstrations that model how enveloped and nonenveloped viruses are released from infected cells.

  • HIV Protease Inhibitors

    HIV Protease Inhibitors

    Labs & Demos

    This demonstration models how the HIV protease enzyme functions and how its activity is blocked by a class of anti-HIV drugs.

  • Viral DNA Integration

    Viral DNA Integration

    Labs & Demos

    In this hands-on activity, students model how a double-stranded DNA copy of the HIV genome is integrated into the host cell DNA.
