Fun Links - Send me your favorites!
- The Virtual Cell Animation Collection, a set of very cool animations of the inner workings of a eukaryotic cell.
- Cells Alive!, a site with several animations and even some quizzes to test comprehension.
- The Harvard Molecular and Cellular Biology Multimedia site. Includes the famous "Inner Life of the Cell" video, plus many others. Here is the YouTube link for the Inner Life video, if you prefer.
- A nice video introducing the concepts of cellular respiration.
- A great video covering protein modification during transit through the ER and Golgi. Thanks to James Tyler Poore, a former UTA!
- YouTube video of the band Phish playing their song Golgi Apparatus. Note that they mispronounce the name! (In case you'd like to see the lyrics, here they are. Notice whoever typed them in misspelled lysosome.)
- An animation illustrating the origin of embryonic stem cells. Very nicely done.
- The American Society for Cell Biology (yes, it is actually a fun site to visit if you like cell biology: these are the folks that say, "MAP kinase kinase kinase kinase" with a straight face).
- Some sample cell biology test questions from Suite101.com. Dr. Plopper cannot guarantee the questions and/or answers are applicable to this course.
- Dr. Plopper is currently looking for a clear, concise discussion of formal logic in scientific reasoning that isn't deeply philosophical or boring. Send him your nomination!
