BioCoach Activity

Biomembranes I: Membrane Structure and Transport


This BioCoach activity will help you review the structure of membranes and the variety of ways in which materials travel across membranes by active or passive processes. A companion BioCoach activity, Biomembranes II, reviews the dynamic behavior of membranes, as well as the mechanisms by which membranes allow communication between cells and the formation of multicellular tissues.

This module is designed to be a supplement to, but not a replacement for, your textbook and classroom notes. You can test your understanding of membrane structure and transport by using the Self-Quiz at the end of the module.
