Muscle contration websites
Texas A&M Muscle Animation - great animation that walks you though muscle structure and animation
Thompson Animation - This animation is great for learning the parts of a muscle cell.

Mink Links: Use these links to help you get to know your mink
University of Minnesota Duluth
BioKit has a pretty good power point
I found this too


DNA Replication - this website has lots of great animations.

Theses two websites are great animations of protein synthesis: Transcription and Translation

Protein Synthesis - This page has lots of great pictures and the explantations are easy and simple to follow.

Mr. Murray's Science - This web page contains interactive study helps that I did help create.

The Biology Project - Created by the University of Arizona. This is an EXCELLENT website! There are several different study help on this website: cell membrane, The Cell Cycle & Mitosis, Meiosis, and Prokaryotic, Eukaryotic & Viruses (you need to study Eukaryotic for class, but prokaryotic and viruses for TAKS test).
