This four-part, interactive module treats teachers to a direct look at the people involved in breaking the mystery behind the code of life. The modules are arranged by topics that focus on how the structure of DNA was determined, how DNA is copied, how DNA is read, and how DNA is controlled. Each module is subdivided into additional parts. These parts include images of scientists who contributed to the history of DNA discoveries. By clicking on the images, teachers are taken to a new window to watch short videos by or about the scientists. Teachers can also click on links to computer simulations, such as an activity to create a model of DNA using cardboard cutouts, just as James Watson did.
