I would like to start collecting links for useful biological animations. In teaching at the college-level, I have found it extremely useful to show students animations of various biological processes. Textbooks often come with CD-ROMs or web site access codes that give students access to various animations. However, there are a lot of great animations that are freely available on the web.
- The mechanism of sliding filaments during muscle contraction
- Long bone growth (at the epiphyseal plate)
Please send me examples of any useful sites that you know of…and I will continue to post those that I find.
