Essential Web Based Resources in Biology


This is our collection of websites in the field of biology that we have identified as having content and relevance to the college or university student studying the subject of biology, These sites are not lists of links. Instead they contain data, tutorials and background information that will serve to assist the understanding of the subject as well as providing ideas for research projects and papers.  For our collection of general academic resources which may contain biology related materials as well as those from other subjects click here.

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.
