A Genetics Glossary to check your understanding of genetics terms:

The Genetics and Ethics Page, a basic page with links to many, many useful and informative pages. It appears to be actively maintained by a PhD candidate at the University of British Columbia.









ExPASy Proteomics Tools, to find out more about your unknown DNA sequence:


Pedro's BioMolecular Research Tools, "A Collection of WWW Links to Information and Services Useful to Molecular Biologists":







BioMedNet, "The Internet Community for Biological and Medical Researchers":







Note: to access parts of this site, such as "A Billion Base Pairs Up for Grabs" (an article from the "HMS Beagle" about Bioinformatics resources), you must become a member of BioMedNet--this is free.

Access the National Center for Biotechnology Information:
