Dr. Brett Finlay shows how bacteria can grow rapidly to incredible numbers, and also explains what limits this explosive growth. This resource would be great preparation material for a classroom discussion or video presentation for both the students and the teacher. This visual helps further broaden the knowledge of students in both the upper high school and college undergraduate on bacterial growth. The lecture is featured on the DVD 2000 and Beyond: Confronting the Microbe Menace, available free from HHMI. The video is 54 seconds long and available on WMV (10MB) and MOV (8MB). All Infection Disease videos can be found at http://www.hhmi.org/biointeractive/disease/video.html .
Explore principles of taxonomy by sorting seashells according to their morphological characteristics and constructing an evolutionary tree.
This lecture covers the fundamentals of the circulatory system, including the structure and function of the heart.
Corn was originally bred from the teosinte plant by native Mexican farmers. The morphologies of modern-day corn and teosinte plants are compared to illustrate how artificial selection can bring about dramatic changes in plants. This video is also featured on the DVD Evolution: Constant Change and Common Threads, available free from HHMI. This video is 52 seconds in length, and available in MOV (13 MB) and WMV (16 MB). All Evolution videos are located at: http://www.hhmi.org/biointeractive/evolution/video.html.
Video microscopy of mating between a male and a hermaphrodite C. elegans roundworm. This video featured on the HHMI DVD, The Meaning of Sex: Genes and Gender, available free from HHMI. Also, this video is 56 seconds in length, and available in Quicktime (2 MB) and Windows Media (3 MB).

One technique for discovering small molecules of biological relevance is to expose cultured cells to a variety of small molecules and look for changes in the cells' appearance, behavior or other measurable qualities.
This lecture covers ways to detect cancer and the current treatments available to help patients with cancer.
Dr. Brett Finlay enlists a student volunteer to show the surprisingly high amount of bacteria found in his own mouth. This resource is also featured on the DVD 2000 and Beyond: Confronting the Microbe Menace, available free from HHMI. This video is one minute and 27 seconds in length, and available in MOV (8 MB) and WMV (12 MB). All Infectious Disease videos are located at: http://www.hhmi.org/biointeractive/disease/video.html.
The hypothetical relationship of chemical space and biological space is plotted on a three-dimensional graph, giving a glimpse of the future direction of research at the intersections of various disciplines.
