HudsonAlpha Cell | HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology
by Dr. Nanochick at 10:36 pm EDT, Apr 7, 2010

Some things are very difficult to visualize from the flat pages of a book. Among them is one of life’s basic building blocks: the cell.

“We know from discussions with educators across the state that the leading science concepts students struggle with are cells and the differences between different types of cells,” said Dr. Neil Lamb, director of educational outreach for the HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology.

In response, Lamb and his team have introduced HudsonAlpha Cell. Using techniques found in video gaming, Web-based HudsonAlpha Cell allows viewers to interact with plant, animal and bacteria cells by double clicking to zoom, clicking and dragging to rotate, and performing a simple mouse over for annotations.
