Jones & Bartlett Learning's Molecular Biology Animations bring fascinating molecular biology phenomena to life with a collection of vivid, full color, interactive exercises. Each animation guides students through molecular biology topics and gauges students' progress and understanding with assessment questions introduced throughout each narrated animation. These "Speed Bumps" serve to ensure that students fully understand the process demonstrated as well as retain the knowledge for future quizzes and tests.

Key Features and Benefits of Jones & Bartlett Learning Molecular Biology Animations:

  • Brings key molecular biology concepts to life through dynamic, interactive exercises.
  • Each animation is based on a real-world molecular biology concept.
  • "Speed Bump" questions throughout each animation ask students to pause and assess their understanding of the concept at hand.
  • Narrated exercises fully engage students in the learning process.
  • Assessment questions are offered in a variety of formats including drag and drop, order of processes, multiple choice, and fill-in-the-blank.

Animations Include:

  • Eukaryotic Translation Initiation Pathway
  • Base Excision Repair in Eukaryotes
  • Model for Loading DnaB onto Single Strands at DUE
  • Okazaki Fragment Maturation
  • Model for miRNA Formation and Action in Drosophila
  • Polypeptide Chain Elongation Pathway in Bacteria
  • Purification of mRNA and pre-mRNA

Burton E. Tropp-Queens College/CUNY

Burton Tropp received a Ph.D. in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from Harvard University. After completing his graduate research on the mechanism of methylation of transfer RNA he studied protein synthesis in regenerating rat liver while a post-doctoral fellow in the Department of Microbiology and Immunology at the Harvard Medical School. He then joined the faculty of the City University of New York where he is currently a professor in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at Queens College and in the Ph.D. Biochemistry Program at the City University of New York Graduate Center. He teaches biochemistry and biochemical genetics at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. His major research interest has been the genetic aspects of lipid metabolism. He has authored more than 50 peer-reviewed papers in this research area.
