In this activity you can make a bracelet of DNA sequence from organisms including a human, chimpanzee, butterfly, carnivorous plant or flesh-eating bacteria.
Discover how microbes, such as bacteria and viruses, can be spread from person to person.
Play detective and uncover how microbes spread around the surfaces you touch if you don’t wash your hands properly!
Step into the shoes of a genetic scientist and carry out a phenotype analysis with the model organism, zebrafish.
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 all of the processes involved in sequencing a DNA sample; from receiving a sample DNA to releasing the assembled DNA sequence data.
This film shows how computer software is used to create DNA sequences that can modify the DNA of malaria parasites.
