on Molecular Evolution
A great introductory text about life from the beginning, and how
molecular biology can and is revealing new secrets. By David Nelson,
U of Tennessee - Memphis)
A great text about the beginnings of bioinformatics.
of Biological Systems
This workshop report, from the National Science Foundation, touches
biological modeling on a much broader level, dealing with ecology,
evolution, and organismal biology, but also molecular and cellular
A portion of the NCBI site of special interest to educators and
NIGMS Computing Life
This website, from the National Institution of General Medical Sciences, introduces you how scientists use computers to advance our understanding of biology and human health.
for Molecular Biology
Lloyd Allison, Monash University. A good explanation of the theory
behind computational molecular analysis, even gives a non-technical
introduction. Provides some codes for sequence alignment.
A great resource!! Michael Zucker, Washington University. If you
ever wondered just how computational molecular biology was done,
this series of lectures will introduce you to the various schools
A fantastic starting point!! Brian Golding, McMaster University.
This is a great resource for anyone just starting off in computational
biology. It begins with an introduction to computer science, basically,
and discusses the different sequence databases and how to search
them. Sequence selection, alignment, distance matrices, phylogenies,
pattern analysis. It's all here!
Georg Fuellen, University of Bielefeld. Another excellent introductory
set of comp bio lectures.
Genomes in Terms of Protein Structure
Mark Gerstein & Hedi Hegyi, Yale University
Stanford University. Links to agencies, societies, archives, centers,
databases, conferences, courses, genome centers, genome databases,
and protein structure servers.
U. of California, Santa Cruz. Links to UCSC resources, a protein-prediction
contest, conferences and journals, online courses and texts, and
many other miscellaneous, unclassified pages.
Hongping Liang, Radford University. Computational biology courses,
genome analysis, promoter and regulatory elements, gene finding
tool, algorithm for sequence analysis, molecular modeling, biological
databases and software, bioinformatics resources.
for Biological Sequence Analysis
Technical University of Denmark. A huge number of links to databases,
protein structure predictions, sequence and structural similarity
searchers, alignment and phylogeny tools, universities, journals,
UK HGMP Resource Centre
U. of Arizona. An excellent and fun look at biology as a whole.
"Lectures", activities, quizzes, and much, much more!
Gateway to a comprehensive collection of science, math, engineering
and technology (SMET) education content and services to learners,
educators, and academic policy-makers.
Science Digital Library
Program to build a digital library for education in science, mathematics,
engineering and technology, funded by the National Science Foundation
(NSF) Division of Undergraduate Education.
A lot of resources related to all sciences, not strictly to biology.
Links to courses, labs, papers, special features, you name it. Really
take a long look!
Tree of Life
A collaborative web project, produced by biologists from around
the world. On more than 2000 World Wide Web pages, the Tree of Life
provides information about the diversity of organisms on Earth,
their history, and characteristics. Each page contains information
about one group of organisms.
