For Teachers section

Overview

Here you can find a range of resources from Flash animations to paper and web based activities, which will support the teaching of topics such as DNA, genes and proteins, cancer and the Human Genome Project. The activities and animations are designed to complement the national curriculum and GCSE, AS and A-level Science specifications for 14-19 year olds and can be used during lessons and science clubs or used for setting homework tasks.

This section is regularly updated with new animations and activities which reflect the work of the Sanger Institute but also have strong links to the National Curriculum, so don't forget to bookmark this page.
