Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
The Virtual Cell Animations app includes an animation, still images, narrative, and content quiz.
In version 1.4, the modules covered are aerobic respiration; cellular respiration; meiosis and mitosis; photosynthesis; protein expression; RNA expression; secretion; and signaling.
The app was developed by Virtual Cell Productions, a North Dakota State University project team funded by the United States National Science Foundation Course, Curriculum, and Laboratory Improvement program.
The mission of the team is to develop visualization tools to aid the learning of science concepts for students of all ages.
What's New in Version 1.4.0
More modules have been added. The modules now covered are aerobic respiration; cellular respiration; meiosis and mitosis; photosynthesis; protein expression; RNA expression; secretion; and signaling.
The audio for the videos will now be audible when the device is muted.
New way to study
Virtual cell is an app that allows the user to use a combination of video, PowerPoint, and text to study the cell and very specific cellular functions. As a (future) microbiology major, I believe this is an incredible app that offers users a new way to study even the most specific biological processes
Nice calm and relaxing narration of professional 3D models of metabolic details. A bit simplified but not dumbed down. It's part of the Virtual Cell Animation Project with a link to their web site included. A lot more exciting and memorable than fixed textbook diagrams!
Wish I would have found this sooner!!!
Awesome way to visually learn the material! It really helped me on my cell bio exam! Plus there's no pop-ups or required in-app purchases! Overall great!
