  • Seed Dispersal in Tropical Forests

    Seed Dispersal in Tropical Forests

    Activity

    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.

  • Role of p53 in the Cell Cycle

    Role of p53 in the Cell Cycle

    Data Point

    Researchers investigated the role of p53 in cell cycle regulation by genetically engineering a cell line with deleted copies of the p53 gene. They exposed the cell lines to DNA-damaging radiation and observed how this exposure impacted mitosis.

  • Genes as Medicine

    Genes as Medicine

    Short Film

    (17 min 16 sec) Watch the story of how gene therapy restored the sight of a nearly-blind young patient. Told from the perspective of two researchers who spent over 25 years working to develop this breakthrough technology, this short film chronicles their successes and challenges, and illustrates how the method works to treat inherited conditions.

  • Origins of Antibiotic Resistance

    Origins of Antibiotic Resistance

    Data Point

    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.
