Astrobiology seeks to understand the
origin of the building blocks of life, how these biogenic
compounds combine to create life, how life affects - and is
affected by the environment from which it arose, and finally,
whether and how life expands beyond its planet of origin.
BioEd Online utilizes state-of-the-art technology to give
you instant access to reliable, cutting-edge information and
educational tools for biology and related subjects.
The Bioinformatics Organization, Inc. (Bioinformatics.Org)

Cornell Lab of Ornithology
Cornell Lab of Ornithology is a nonprofit membership
institution whose mission is to interpret and conserve the
earth's biological diversity through research, education, and
citizen science focused on birds. Our programs work with citizen
scientists, government and nongovernment agencies across North
America and beyond. We believe that bird enthusiasts of all ages
and skill levels can and do make a difference. We invite you to
learn more about our areas of study.
Morphology library is a dynamic
archive of information on digital morphology and high-resolution
X-ray computed tomography of biological specimens. Browse
through the site and see spectacular imagery and animations and
details on the morphology of many representatives of the Earth's
biota. From the
University of Texas.

The Home page of Ruediger
The Home page of Ruediger Rudolf
contains micrographs, short videos, species descriptions, and
detailed information on several groups of the aquatic animal
life. Two of these - the cladocerans and the rotiferans -
undergo a special life cycle, alternating between sexual and
asexual reproduction, the so called heterogony. As such, some
extra information on this aspect of biology is also provided.
Genetic Science Learning Center
Genetic Science Learning Center is an outreach education
program located in the midst of bioscience research at the
University of Utah Health Sciences Center. Our mission is to
help people understand how genetics affects their lives and
The Human Genome: Your genes, your health,
This website aims to provide you with key information about
the human genome: the science, its role in health and medicine,
and the broader social impact of unravelling its mysteries. The
site is produced by the Wellcome Trust, an independent
web site is designed, researched and produced by Dexter Sear at
I/0 Vision from Hawaii. This site aims to help you see insects
for the miniature marvels they represent and to understand how
intertwined our cultures have become with these alien creatures
Science covers science, technology, physics, biology, the
animal world and environment as well as the culture of science
and technology – science fiction novels, movies – everything for
the inquiring mind with an irreverent point of view.
Medical Gross Anatomy Learning
At the University of Michigan (UMich) Medical School, to
supplement the traditional lecture-exam teaching model, medical
students now watch
of anatomical dissections via the Web, then complete their
own procedures. Edited on iMac computers with iMovie and
QuickTime, the videos have helped the most recent class of UMich
students record the highest average grades achieved in the last
For several centuries artists have depicted the human figure,
still-lifes, landscapes or non-figurative motives. One subject
has been widely neglected all those years: Micro organisms! The
Micropolitan Museum finally exhibits these often overlooked
works of art which are only visible with the aid of the
microscope. Curator Wim van Egmond has collected the finest
microscopic masterpieces nature has ever produced during eons of
natural selection and other life-sculpting mechanisms.
