Selected Internet Resources from the Librarians' Internet Index (http://lii.org)

Biology Project - http://www.biology.arizona.edu/

Designed for high school and college biology students, this site has problem sets and tutorials in Biochemistry, Cell Biology, Chemicals and Human Health, Developmental Biology, Human Biology, Immunology, Mendelian Genetics, and Molecular Biology. Some modules are available in Spanish. Some sections include activities (the Biochemistry activity requires the free Mac/PCMolecule2 software)and Web resources.

 

 

BioTech - http://biotech.icmb.utexas.edu/

A hybrid biology and chemistry educational resource and research tool, intended to attract students and enrich the public's knowledge of biology issues. The goal is to make BioTech as useful a tool to a high school student as it is to a postdoctoral fellow. Includes a great dictionary and annotated links to all the best resources on the Internet for studying science and biotechnology.

 

 

CELLS alive!- http://www.cellsalive.com/

High resolution electron microscopy and slick animations demonstrate the mechanics of HIV infection, allergy and mite interactions, bacteriophages, how antibodies are made, bacterial motility, ulcer-causing bacteria, how lymphocytes kill infected or tumor cells, and more. Video clips require QuickTime.

 

 

Dictionary of Cell Biology - http://www.mblab.gla.ac.uk/~julian/Dict.html

This online version of the book provides quick access to over 6500 hyper-linked definitions of terms. This site contains the content of the second edition, April 1995, along with new entries which are destined for the third edition. Searchable.

 

 

Gene Almanac - http://www.dnalc.org/

This site provides DNA from the Beginning, "a multimedia primer on the basics of DNA and heredity." The Resources section offers Bioservers, which allow for the use of bioinformatics or the use of computers to solve biological problems; Bioforms, interactive exercises; the Biology Animation Library covering DNA concepts; and Nucleotide Sequences, complete nucleotide sequences for a set of plasmids. GeneNews has links to recent news about genetics and genetic research. Requires RealPlayer and Shockwave. Related links are available.

 

 

Taxonomy on the Web -http://www.tenafly.k12.nj.us/~hsspecialed/History%20and%20Diversity%20of%20Life/supplemental/Taxonomy%20on%20the%20Web.htm

The biological classification schema is a complex system of relationships, links, and layers. This site, written for beginning biology students, brings taxonomy, and the large number of taxonomy Web sites, into an organized, manageable form. Taxonomy on the Web (TOW) is sponsored by the North Harris Montgomery Community College District (TX)

Evolution

Anthropology - http://anthro.palomar.edu/tutorials/

A basic introduction to the topic. The searchable Anthropology Tutorials cover physical (biological) anthropology and includes early theories of evolution, genetics, heredity, chromosomal abnormalities, biological adaptability, primates, and the classification of living things. Cultural (Social) anthropology includes language and culture, kinship, sex and marriage, ethnicity and race, and culture change. Related links are provided. From the Behavior Sciences Department, Palomar College.

 

 

Biosciences (Virtual Library) - http://mcb.harvard.edu/BioLinks.html

Meta-Index to resources on, among others - Agriculture, Biotechnology, Botany, Entomology, Evolution,Forestry, Genetics, Medicine Mycology, Neurobiology, Physiology, and Whale Watching.

 

 

Introduction to the Metazoa - http://www.ucmp.berkeley.edu/phyla/phyla.html

A good site that discusses the evolution of animal life. Includes information on the fossil record, life history, ecology, systematics and morphology of each class. The systematics section displays the various subgroups of each taxon, and is connected to other exhibits in the University of California’s Museum of Paleontology. There is detailed information on evolution which includes biographical information about individuals involved in its study. There is a link to the Tree of Life that displays the evolutionary tree for both animals and plants. There is also a glossary of related terms.

 

 

The Tree of Life -http://tolweb.org/tree/phylogeny.html

This huge and extremely ambitious project organizes, surveys, and displays the diversity, evolutionary history, and characteristics of all groups of living organisms. The great Tree has roots, a trunk, stems, and branches that connect each organism to all others. Coordinated and edited by David R. Maddison of the University of Arizona, this attractive and expertly managed site has over 1300 pages housed on 20 computers in four countries, and is authored by biologists from around the world. Originally intended for professionals, the site has evolved into one for non-biologists as well. Searchable.
