Essentials of Genetics Website Reference

Posted on May 24, 2010  Comments (1)

Scitable is a science library and personal learning tool on genetics developed by Nature. I must admit I am against the closed science stance Nature normally supports. But this is a good effort on their part at actually talking advantage of the internet to openly promote science. I imagine Nature will eventually more and more move toward supporting open science.

The website has a library of over 200 faculty-written, peer-reviewed articles on core concepts in genetics, plus a video-based online primer called Essentials of Genetics, glossaries, spotlights on key issues, and lots more high quality faculty and student resources.

Scitable is a great place to research and learn more about genetics topics such as diseases, evolution, genetics and society.

    Thanks for the link John. I definitely found some worth while articles at scitable. I’ve added it to my bookmarks. I just got to be careful that I do not waste to much time on the site at work. 🙂
