Module 1 Cell Biology 1
Section 1.1 Cell Structure
1.1B: Cell Structure and Function
Locate the section on “Eukaryotes” and try dragging and dropping the organelles into the correct location on the cells.
Choose from either plant or animal cell and then click on each cell structure to learn more. Check out the jigsaw puzzle as well.
1.1C: Organelle Cooperation
The Virtual Body
Narrated simulation of the digestive system. Select the “Digestive Tract” link and then select “Guided Tour.” You may want to explore the other links relating to the digestive tract.
Cellular Visions: The Inner Life of a Cell
A breathtaking 3-D animation of the inner workings of the cell with accompanying music. For more information about the animation, go to http://www.studiodaily.com/main/technique/tprojects/6850.html.
BodyMaps is an interactive visual search tool that allows users to explore the human body in 3-D. With easy-to-use navigation, users can search multiple layers of the human anatomy, view systems and organs down to their smallest parts, and understand in detail how the human body works.
Section 1.2 Cell Compounds and Biological Molecules
1.2A: Cell Compounds—Water, Acids, Bases, and Buffers
The Structure of Water
A 3-D animation of the water molecule.
1.2B: Biological Molecules—Carbohydrates
Biomolecules: The Carbohydrates
An interactive lesson on carbohydrates.
Biomolecules: The Lipids
An interactive lesson on lipids.
Biomolecules: The Proteins
An interactive lesson on proteins.
Section 1.3 Transport Across Cell Membrane
1.3B: Passive Transport
Select the “Passive Transport” option. Feel free to look at “Active Transport” and Diffusion/Osmosis. They are transport mechanisms forthcoming in the course.
1.3C: Active Transport
Click on the links to see animations of active transport and to review passive transport.
1.3D: Comparison of Transport Mechanisms
Construction of the Cell Membrane
Look at animations showing the different proteins and transport mechanisms used to transport molecules across the cell membrane.
