Virtual Cell Animation Resource Series Added to the NCLOR
The Virtual Cell Animation Collection resource series from the World Wide Web Instructional Committee at North Dakota StateUniversity is a set of high-quality animations of molecular andcellular processes. Currently, these animations represent transcription,translation, bacterial gene expression, messenger RNA (mRNA)processing, mRNA splicing, protein transport into an organelle,the electron transport chain, and the use of a biological gradientto drive adenosine triphosphate synthesis. All items in this resource series have a flash-based movie, zip files of annotated still images from the animations and a text file of the animation narration.
For more information about the use of Virtual Cell Animations in the classroom, review this study on using the collection in the classroom.
