Interactive biology quizzes! Now, we know how much you loooove quizzes, but these ones have super detailed answer explanations. Very helpful, we promise.
A pretty sweet cheat sheet with hand-drawn representations of each of your favorite organelle friends.
A Q&A session with a Princeton professor who is changing the way we think about bacteria.

Killer animations brought to you by BioVisions at Harvard University. We've linked you to "Mitochondria," but there are a number of others. Obligatory uplifting/dramatic music included, of course.

'80s video number two, with a featured clip on cell murder.
As we move into the '90s, another super dramatic video of how molecules get into cells.
They Might Be Giants sing about cells. So many songs about science! We <3 TMBG.
If you can handle the off-key singing, the song is kind of catchy… In fact, we're humming it to ourselves right now.
An explanation of how we are basically a bunch of "hotels" that house a lot of bacterial houseguests. Gross.
NPR discusses infection and where we would be without bacteria.
NPR throws a party to demonstrate what the interior of a cell might look like.
