Featuring more than a dozen meticulous animations, this tutorial can help beginning college students follow the intricacies of key processes in cell and molecular biology. Created by John Kyrk, a biologist and artist in San Francisco, the colorful graphics step through protein synthesis, meiosis, the Krebs cycle, photosynthesis, and other events. In this illustration of the light reactions of photosynthesis, two chlorophyll molecules protrude from the membrane of a plant's chloroplast. When photons of the right wavelength zap a chlorophyll, the free-floating molecules at the right move in and help synthesize ATP and NADPH.
