Biological Sciences at Intute - new coverage

Improved and extended coverage of the Biological Sciences in Intute

The Intute: Biological Sciences section was launched in January 09 containing more than 600 Web resources. A wide variety of resource types have been evaluated and included in the collection:

Image libraries and movies (e.g the Microscope Imaging Station)
Virtual Laboratories (e.g The HHMI Virtual Immunology Lab)
Educational Animations (e.gThe Virtual Cell Animation Collection)
Tutorials (e.g Construction of a DNA Library)
Seminars (e.g the American Institute of Biological Sciences Annual Meeting )
Lectures (e.g Connecting Concepts - interactive lessons in biology)
OpenCourseware material (e.g MIT OpenCourseWare Molecular Biology)
Wiki and other Web 2.0 resources (e.g MicrobeWiki and MicrobiologyBytes)
Open access journals and full-text reports (e.g BMC Cell Biology)

You can either search or browse for content and if you would like us to evaluate a resource for possible inclusion, then please submit it. If you want to keep up-to-date with what is being added to the collection, then why not subscribe to our latest additions RSS News Feed at

‘The Annual Reviews Collection’ is a series of review articles reproduced from various ‘Annual Review’ journals. The reviews cover minor groove binding proteins, ubiquitin and secretory protein trafficking, small G proteins in yeast cell polarization and wall biosynthesis, GCN5-related N-acetyltransferases, protein folding, dynamin and membrane fission, membrane binding domains in signalling and subcellular targeting, phosphoinositide-specific phospholipase C, viral interference with MHC Class I antigen processing and presentation, minimal-gene-set concept and horizontal gene transfer in prokaryotes. The collection is hosted by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) from their ‘Bookshelf’ where a collection of biomedical books have been adapted for the Web.
