Teaching tools: Bad Biology Movies: X-men, Jurassic Park, Planet of the Apes

Another interesting biology in fiction site: When Good Biology Goes Bad at the Movies

This site has teaching tools based on a course taught during the Independent Activities Period at MIT and is a product of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute Master Educatoin Group. There are downloadable presentations (all PowerPoint) on "Cloning and Jurassic Park", "Evolution and X-men II" and "Speciation and Planet of the Apes".

Good stuff if you want an interesting twist for your biology class.
