The intricate detail of the DNA of the human being is explained very well by associating it from the organism level down to the molecular level.

The visual modality of learning is a great addition to learning, but I thought the graphics were a little under budgeted, sorry.

good graphics but it was hard to visualize the scale of things and there were lots of words that I didn't want to read.

Great simulation; goes from whole body to molecular structure of nucleotides.

This is a nice multimedia resource that "zooms" into the body and into the cell. It really simplifies and puts into perspective exactly what we are talking about when it comes to DNA. Thanks.
