TED-Ed video: The Cancer Gene We All Have

My friend and colleague Michael Windelspecht recently produced a useful video about cancer. Complete with compelling animations, narration, and analogies, it’s a great launching point for in-class group work or for a homework assignment. The video’s explanations span from genetics and cell cycle control to cancer’s effects on the organism.

If you watch until the end at the link here (The Cancer Gene We All Have), you’ll see five multiple choice questions and three free-response questions to test your understanding. Below I’ve placed the video if you want to view it on YouTube, but you won’t get the see the assessment questions. Enjoy!
