Videos Animations

Aeration

Animation of water limiting and aeration limiting factors.

Cereal Quality

An animation about cereal grain and how how to measure cereal grain quality.

Herbicide Metabolism: Conjugation

General and specific examples of major Phase II reactions showing conjugation of herbicides with glutathione, sugars, or amino acids are illustrated in this animation.

Corn Crossing

An interactive animation first demonstrating how controlled crosses are made in corn then asking the learner to click and drag objects to make a controlled cross of their own.

Transgene Design

This is an interactive animation that asks the viewer to design a gene by selecting the promoter and coding region that will produce a plant with the desired traits.

Flower structures, Plant Breeding, Cross Pollination, Making Crosses

This animations illustrates the structures of a flower, plant breeding, cross pollination and making crosses.

Flower Parts

This animation illustrates the botanical parts of flower structures. Edited March, 2012.

Gel Electrophoresis

This animation explains how gel electrophoresis works. The affect of fragment size on movement through the gel is demonstrated.

Genetic Engineering Vs. Traditional Breeding Timeline

This animation compares the timeline for genetic engineering versus traditional plant breeding. It also compares the regulatory processes of each.

Genetic Mapping

An overview of how genes affect an organism's traits, and how those genes are passed from one generation to the next. Also explains how scientists map locations of genes on chromosomes.

Metabolism: Hydrolysis

General and specific examples of major hydrolytic Phase I reactions are shown in this animation.

Wheat Breeding Activity

This interactive activity goes through the basic process used in a wheat breeding program. Crossing, genetic variation, selection and elements of DNA technology are discussed within this activity. The material is aimed towards high school or introductory life science undergraduate students.

Herbicide Uptake by Leaves and Cells

This animation describes how herbicides are taken up by leaves and illustrates how physico-chemical characteristics alter their movement across cuticles. Passive and active mechanisms of herbicide absorption across plant membranes into cells are shown as well.

Marker Assisted Selection

An animation showing how plant breeding has changed over time, including the use of molecular markers.

Nitrogen Supply Relationship between Grain Yield and Protein Concentration

Discusses the relationship between the amount of nitrogen applied and how it affects grain yield and protein concentration in a grain crop.

Grass Seed Structure and Seedling Emergence

This activity discusses both seed structure and seedling emergence in monocots. Through active learning elements, photos and text students will discover the basic anatomy of seeds and the function of each structure. The process of seedling emergence is presented in detail including the difference between emergence in cool-season and warm-season grasses.

Perennial Plant Response to Defoliation

Learn about the life cycle of perennials and how defoliation at different times of the season and different heights affects their growth and carbohydrate reserve levels.

Plant Breeding Activity

This interactive activity goes through the basic process used in a traditional breeding program. Crossing, genetic variation, selection and elements of DNA technology are discussed within this activity. The material is aimed towards high school or introductory life science undergraduate students. Population Dynamics of Palmer Amaranth"

Refuge Designs with YieldGard Rootworm Corn

This animation discusses the importance of Insect Resistance Management (IRM) and illustrates different field refuge designs.

Soil Horizons

An overview of the different soil horizons, their composition and how they develop.

Sub-Soil Contact

This animation shows how plants uptake herbicides from the soil.

Transpiration

This animation details how water moves through plants and how various factors affect this movement.
