View Resource BioRap (DNA Replication and Protein Synthesis with a beat)

This video is of a rap on DNA replication and protein synthesis.
View Resource Biotechnology Active Learning Teachable Tidbit

In this activity, students are exposed to some of the most significant biomolecules currently exploited by technology and identify their natural origins. They also explain the significance of the roles these biomolecules play in nature, as well as for humans. Specifically, students work to develop a logical process for a real-life application of biotechnology (insulin production) using knowledge...

View Resource Blood Types

A video that explains the genetic and molecular basis behind ABO and Rh blood-type classification and consequences of an Rh- mother being impregnated with Rh+ fetuses. The A and B antigens are described in the video as being different proteins, therefore to be more specific and align with 1113, it would be good to remind students that A and B antigens are in fact different glycoproteins. Also...
View Resource CaseIt: a Lab Simulation Software on DNA or protein sequence

Case It v5.03 is a computer simulation that will perform common laboratory procedures on any DNA or protein sequence, including PCR, ELISA, DNA gel electrophoresis, western blot, Southern blot and so on. By using the computer simulation together with designed cases (such as infectious diseases, inherited diseases or crime scenes), students will have the opportunities to propose questions,...
View Resource Cell Components Worksheet

Modified from a worksheet originally created by Dr. Biao Ding, this worksheet can be passed out to students to use as a review of chemistry, macromolecules, and components of the cell. The key to the worksheet and all references for the figures are included in the file.
