Microbiology Animations

 

Overview

 

D N AClear 3D animations of molecules involved in the DNA/RNA processes allow students to learn molecular structures and to manipulate molecules to create atomic bonds. Rich animations provide support for an entire undergraduate course in molecular biology.

 

Details

A Protein Synthesis Tutor was directed at retraining defense industry engineers for jobs in the biotechnology industry. This work focused on manufacturing practice, synthesis, and problem-solving in the production of proteins through the interaction of DNA and RNA. This project was expanded with an National Science Foundation ILI grant to develop similar tutoring modules for an entire undergraduate course.
