Life inside a cell - video

This is a very impressive 8 minute animation created for Harvard's Molecular & Cellular Biology program that "transports Harvard Biology undergraduate students into a three-dimensional journey through the microscopic world of a cell". the animation illustrates the mechanisms that allow a white blood cell to sense its surroundings & respond to an external stimulus.
Harvard University expects a performance improvement of its biology students of almost 30% by using such visualization tools. Here with a narrator.
