Our animations clearly and accurately explain the basics of genetics and evolution. Together they act as an introductory course to these fascinating fields of study.
The RNA World Hypothesis is the idea that before living cells, proteins, and the genetic code ever existed, chains of RNA were replicating and evolving on the early Earth.
If evolution is all about "survival of the fittest", how does cooperation evolve?
Point mutations are the simplest natural mechanisms known to increase the genetic information of a population.
Gene Duplications dramatically lengthen the genetic code of an individual. As point mutations add up in the duplicated region across generations, entirely new genes with new functions can evolve.
Biologists teach that all living things on earth are related. Is there any solid evidence to back this claim? Join us as we explore the facts!
Learn how DNA creates a living creature! Here you will be introduced to the genetic code, DNA transcription and translation, and the importance of proteins in the chemistry of life.
You hear about genes all the time in the news and in the movies, but what exactly is a gene? Here we explain what they are and even go over how genetically modified organism are being produced.
Evolution is often considered a complex and controversial topic but it's actually a very simple concept to understand.
Natural Selection is one of the main concepts found within the theory of evolution. See how it works!
Find out why the science of evolution is so important! Here you will follow three scientists as they use the theory of evolution to solve mysteries in food production, medicine, and environmental protection.
Darwin's theory of biological evolution helps us understand how simple life forms can give rise to complex lifeforms, but how did the first reproducing creatures come about?
Have you ever wondered how life first got started on Earth? So do scientists! Though the question has not yet been fully answered, a careful study of Chemical Evolution is beginning to shed light on this mystery.
