DNA Workshop

Added 06/20/2011
This PBS site provides a concise, interactive presentation that covers DNA replication, transcription and translation. While it does not go into great detail on the various enzymes and leading vs lagging strands, it does present the basic concepts clearly

Primate Phylogenetics

Added 06/20/2011
Students use DNA sequences from Human, Neanderthal, Chimpanzee, Gorrilla and Orangutan mitochondrial D-loop to perform a sequence alignment and develop a phylogenetic tree. Links are also available to other taxonomic databases.
