Joining extraordinary microscope footage of living cells to clarifying animations, this comprehensive investigation systematically arranges its main topics, while carefully planned DVD chaptering allows quick access to closely focused subtopics:

  • Cells and molecules: types of cells, cell organization, organic molecules
  • Cell movement and transport: the plasma membrane, osmosis, transport proteins, phagocytosis, pinocytosis, receptor mediated endocytosis, golgi function, lysosomes and hydrolytic digestion, microtubules, cilia, actin, and myosin motor proteins
  • Photosynthesis and cellular respiration: chloroplast structure, light trapping by chlorophyll, light-dependent and light-independent reactions of photosynthesis, glycolysis and fermentation, mitochondrion structure, aerobic respiration, Krebs cycle, electron transport chains, and ATP synthesis
  • DNA replication, mitosis, and cell reproduction: chromosome condensation, mitosis stages, cytokinesis, meiosis, nucleotide structure and bonding, replication enzymes, replicating the strands, topoisomerase and the twisting problem, proofreading and repair, replication review
  • The genetic code and its translation: the protein nature of life, protein structure, transcription, translation, protein synthesis, gene regulation in prokaryotes, exons and introns, mutations, and viruses ("renegade DNA")
