Videos draw upon high-quality animations and never-before-seen photography, suited for college and advanced placement high school students. Included are The Mouse, Drosophila, Arabidopsis, Phage Lambda, A Nematode and Yeast. Authors -- from leading institutions such as Princeton, MIT and UC San Francisco -- were chosen for their scientific expertise and ability to communicate as teachers.
