  • Introduction to Protista: Euglena Euglena was once studied as a simple animal by zoologists and as a simple plant by botanists. How does this protist combine some characteristics of animals with the plant-like ability to photosynthesize? View »
  • Investigating a Phenotype In this activity, students investigate a phenotype that is not so conspicuous, and they perform a simple chemical test to reveal the underlying basis of the phenotype. View »
  • Fruit Flies for the Classroom Discover how you can use fruit flies, or Drosophila, to teach students the principles of genetics and inheritance. View »
  • Under the Skin—Mammalian Musculature Whether you’re teaching college-level anatomy and physiology, an advanced high school anatomy course, or a basic biology course, cat dissection is one of the best ways to help your students understand mammalian musculature. View »
  • Fever and Immune Response The human body uses many mechanisms to maintain a stable internal environment known as homeostasis. A fever is a good example of a response that takes the body outside of its normal temperature range in an effort to eliminate infection. View »
  • Introduction to Fungi This lab introduces students to the Kingdom Fungi through study of two phyla, the zygomycetes and basidiomycetes. View »
  • Introduce Your Classroom to Classification Help your students understand 2 basic tools of biological taxonomy, cladograms and dichotomous keys, with this intriguing lab activity. View »
  • Genetics with Drosophila F1 Crosses: Sex-Linkage Drosophila genetics labs without the the need to select virgin female flies for crosses. We ship F1 flies so your students need only to set them up in fresh vials to produce an F2. View »
  • Carolina's Recommended Reading for AP® Biology Teaching AP® Biology this year? Go beyond the textbook and take students on an exploration of key concepts with these teacher-tested and recommended books. View »
  • Flex and Extend: Modeling a Human Hand Lead students in an engaging and creative project where they build a model that demonstrates the flexing action of the human hand. As students learn about the tendons and muscles of their own hands, they are prepared for a discussion about the similarities and differences between a biological hand and their model. View »
  • Survey of Protista Protists are highly diverse. In this lab students are introduced to this diversity through observing a selection of protists and recording their characteristics. View »
  • Debunking the 4° C Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) Myth Do samples need to be refrigerated immediately after PCR? No. You can leave them at room temperature overnight—and much longer! The founders of miniPCR® explore why. View »
