Science Webcasts

I have high hopes for SciVee – essentially a science focused YouTube. It has not grown as fast as I hoped it would when I first wrote about it last summer. Here is one cool short from the site:

This is a highly accurate visualization of the Bacteriophage T4 based on Cryo-EM datasets of the virus. The scope of the animation is to show the infection process of the T4 into an E. coli cell.

    This is brilliant! I never heard of it before, but I like this a lot. I love learning new things and
    just browsing around the site I’ve found some very cool videos.

    It’s also nice that with a different demographic, it doesn’t suffer from YouTube’s inane comments.

    Thanks for the comment. The breaking of the link is a bit annoying. I found a new link to the webcast and updated the page. It is a fantastic video, and now you can see it again.

    There are more bacteriophages on Earth than any other life-like form. These small viruses are not clearly a form of life, since when not attached to bacteria they are completely dormant…
