Biology Animations Library

The Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory's learning center has a nice library of animations demonstrating various biology concepts. Some of the concepts covered in the animations library include DNA restriction and transformation, DNA arrays, and model organisms. The animations can be viewed online or downloaded. In addition to the animations library, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory has a library of 3D models. Highlighting the list of 3D models is a model of the human brain. Like the other animations, the 3D models can be viewed online or downloaded for use on your local hard drive.

Applications for Education
The animations included in the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory's online libraries could be useful for high school science teachers. Being able to download the animations means that you don't have to worry about not being to access the animations if you lose the Internet connection in your classroom.
