Interactive video lesson plan for: Systems Biology Animation

Activity overview:

This systems biology animation depicts the type of connectivity that exists at multiple scales in a living system. Starting at the molecular level, interactions between DNA (red cubes), RNA (blue cubes), proteins (green cubes), and metabolites (yellow cubes) define the core biological processes required for higher order function. Core biological processes are defined by networks of interactions, and these networks in turn can be interacting with each other as well, either within a given cell, between cells in a given tissue, or between organs in a complex organism. By organizing the vast array of molecular phenotypes into networks that define the functional units within and between tissues, links to physiological states can be made, thereby providing a direct path for molecular biology to impact clinical medicine.
