This animation shows where and how the human genome is stored within our cells.
Are you faster than a machine? Compete against the computer to sequence DNA from a capillary sequencing machine.
This film features personal accounts from scientists from the USA and UK who were involved in the Human Genome Project.
This animation shows one of the methods currently being used to sequence DNA at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute.
This multimedia resource tells the story of the Tasmanian devil and the transmissible cancer that threatens its existence
This flash animation shows you how DNA mutations are involved in the development of cancer.
In this film Gosia Trynka talks about her research looking at the effect of genetic changes on the immune system. This is one of a series of films providing a unique insight into different careers in the field of genomics.
In this film Roland Schwarz talks about his research using computers to model and understand evolution. This is one of a series of films providing a unique insight into different careers in the field of genomics.
In this film Niki Patel talks about her research looking at the genetics of cancer. This is one of a series of films providing a unique insight into different careers in the field of genomics.
In this film Christine Boinett talks about her research looking at antibiotic resistance in bacteria. This is one of a series of films providing a unique insight into different careers in the field of genomics.
This animation shows you how antibiotic resistant strains of bacteria, such as MRSA, can develop and spread, particularly in hospitals.
This video introduces you to the disease malaria, taking you through the life cycle of the parasite that causes it and why it is such a huge problem in the developing world.
In Malaria Challenge you can explore the different stages of malaria and how scientists are trying to find new ways of preventing and treating this deadly tropical disease.
This animation provides an overview of the techniques involved in making a Bacterial Artificial Chromosome (BAC) library.
This film shows how lab scientists work safely with human gut bacteria; culturing them on agar plates and extracting DNA for genome sequencing.
This film shows how scientists work with malaria parasites in the lab; culturing parasites and preparing them so they can be seen using a microscope.
This film shows how computer software is used to create DNA sequences that can modify the DNA of malaria parasites.
This film shows all of the processes involved in sequencing a DNA sample; from receiving a sample DNA to releasing the assembled DNA sequence data.
This animation introduces you to the human genome and shows how the first human genome was sequenced in the Human Genome Project.
This animation shows how bacteria exchange genes on small pieces of DNA called plasmids through a process called horizontal gene transfer.
This flash animation shows how proteins are made in the cell from the information in the DNA code.
This 3D animation shows how proteins are made in the cell from the information in the DNA code.
This flash animation shows the processes involved in the Sanger sequencing method – the DNA sequencing method used during the Human Genome Project.
This 3D animation shows the basic steps in the method of DNA sequencing that was used during the Human Genome Project.
This 3D animation shows you how DNA is copied in a cell. It shows how both strands of the DNA helix are unzipped and copied to produce two identical DNA molecules.
This flash animation shows the process of subcloning. Subcloning is part of the process of preparing DNA for sequencing during the Human Genome Project.
This film explores direct-to-consumer genetic testing through the stories of people who have considered taking this type of genetic test.
This computer game allows you to explore the key features of a human cell. The aim of the game is to match pairs of components from within a human cell.
This animation describes how cancer grows within the body and how different factors can lead to cancer development.
This film tells the story of how DNA sequencing was used to identify that the gene BRAF is commonly mutated in malignant melanoma, and how this has led to the development of a targeted drug against the mutation.
