Other Biochemistry Sites

There is a large number of sites of biochemical interest on the World Wide Web. Here you can find pointers to a few of them.

If you use any of these sites, use the "back" command at the top of your screen to return to NetBiochem.

The ExPASy Molecular Biology Server of the Geneva University Hospital and the University of Geneva is dedicated to the analysis of protein and nucleic acid sequences and to 2-D PAGE. It allows browsing through a number of databases, including
and much more.

scop is a hierarchically organized database of protein structures, according to family. This reflects evolutionary relationships. scop contains RasMol and Chime images. A North American mirror site has been established on the East coast.

Phylogeny Metabolism Alignments are available. This might also be useful for certain levels of teaching.

The National Institutes of Health maintains a World Wide Web site and a gopher server, key sources of research information.

Grants and Research Information and
Molecular Biology Databases
are among the valuable resources here.

The Brookhaven National Laboratory Protein Data Bank also has a World Wide Web site.

The National Science Foundation includes

Biological Sciences and

areas, as well as many others.

The NSF is experimenting with electronic grant management. This project is discussed in Science, 267, 166 (1995).

The Electronic Protein Science Home Page contains its abstracts, table of contents, files of Kinemages and other information.

The Journal of Biological Chemistry is available on line.

NetBiochem, which you are now using, contains several educational modules, and intends to become a complete Medical Biochemistry course on line. Its primary location is at the Allegheny University of the Health Sciences, and there is a mirror site at the University of Utah.

Dr. David Marcey, of the faculty at Kenyon College, has developed some very nice biochemistry and molecular biology materials. These include a collection of RasMol images and a MDL Chemscape Chime-based gallery of molecules. He has also provides an expicit statement of his teaching philosophy.

The University of Leeds has an interesting Biochemistry and Molecular Biology undergraduate site.

The MIT Biology Hypertextbook is a course supplement for a molecular biology course.

This section gives some examples of how people are beginning to publish research papers and other materials using the World Wide Web. The examples have been chosen to illustrate techniques of publication rather than to present Biochemistry information.

The World Wide Web provides a natural instrument for publishing materials of all sorts. It has several useful characteristics.

Research Papers

Leif Laaksonen and Jarl B. Rosenholm have put their paper entitled Molecular dynamics simulations of the water/octanoate interface in the presence of micelles onto a web server along with a series of color plates and and a digitized video not published in the paper.

Complete Journals

Project Muse at The Johns Hopkins University is an interesting experiment by a traditional publisher (The Johns Hopkins University Press) in the use of the World Wide Web, again in a nonbiochemical area, to publish the entirety of several journals which are also available in hard copy. They use intradocument linking to provide convenient access to the endnotes of the papers.

The Journal of Biological Chemistry is available on line.

Job Openings

The Chronicle of Higher Education has its listing of positions in Academe on line. This can be searched using their list of job titles or any word or words of your choosing. If you search by more than one word, you will get all openings that contain any word in your search, but the opening that contains the most hits will be listed first.
