Decode DNA sequences and discover the proteins they code for using online scientific databases.
Discover how DNA sequences code for proteins with different roles and functions.
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.
All living things have DNA. This hands-on activity will enable you to extract DNA from fruit, such as strawberries, using everyday household items.
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.
Play detective and uncover how microbes spread around the surfaces you touch if you don’t wash your hands properly!
This animation describes how cancer grows within the body and how different factors can lead to cancer development.
Explore the features of two closely related subspecies of the bacteria, Salmonella. Find out how the differences in their genomes results in their ability to cause two very different diseases.
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.
Take on the role of a genome researcher and look at real cancer DNA datasets, taken from cancer patients, to find areas of mutation in the BRAF gene.
Discover more about the basic shape and structure of different bacteria through this balloon modelling activity.
