These resources explore proteins by their different function, with examples of how they give structure to living things, carry messages and molecules around our bodies, support the immune system, catalyse chemical reactions, and their use in industry and medicine:
Structure and movement How proteins give...
From the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC), the 'Big questions, big experiment' wall chart describes the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN. It looks at the "big questions" about our Universe that scientists are trying to answer, and how the amazing LHC will help them to do so. The 'Tunnel to the...
This resource looks at several aspects of the immune system including:
- The non-specific immune response
- Specific immune response and antigen recognition
- T cells and B cells
- Autoimmune disease and allergic responses •
- Monoclonal antibodies
- Long term immunity...
This issue of Big Picture provides lots of interesting information about flowering plants and their uses.
The plant hormones animation explores the action of indole-3-acetic acid (IAA) and shows how scientists used experimental evidence to explain the role of auxins in a phototrophic response.
This extensive resource includes a video, presentations, lesson plan and an issue of the Big Picture covering most aspects of cell biology for post-16 students. The aspects of cell biology covered include: Cell structure Cell signalling Cell division Apoptosis Lysosomes Stem cell research
Produced by the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, this multimedia resource explores the five major stages of the malaria lifecycle, highlighting the role of the Plasmodium parasite at each stage. The resource predominantly focuses on Plasmodium falciparum but does also make reference to other Plasmodium species...
Presentation about colonising mars - landing and how live there. Group activity to make Mars Lander to safety land egg for height. In addition activity to make parachutes for Mars Lander
Respiration is the chemical process of releasing energy from organic compounds. This poster illustrates the series of enzyme-controlled reactions in which energy is transferred to produce adenosine triphosphate (ATP) from adenosine diphosphate (ADP) and...
Explore the components of a typical animal cell.
This poster explores the process of protein synthesis.
