21st International Conference on Yeast Genetics and Molecular Biology

This Web site presents abstracts submitted for the plenary and poster sessions of the International Conference on Yeast Genetics and Molecular Biology in Göteborg, Sweden (July 7-12th, 2003). These abstracts are available though the _Saccharomyces_ Genome Database (SGD) at the Department of Genetics at the School of Medicine, Stanford University. Users may easily browse or search the material, or...
A Nano-Robotic "Arm" Prototype Is Built From Synthetic DNA

The week's In The News addresses a recent advancement in the scientific field of molecular nanotechnology. The scientists, Nadrian Seeman and colleagues, at New York University (NYU), have built a nano-robotic prototype from synthetic DNA. This recent major accomplishment was also reported in Nature, (Nature 397: 144-146, Jan. 14, 1999). This controllable molecular mechanical device has "two rigid...
Association of Biomolecular Resource Facilities

The Association of Biomolecular Resource Facilities (ABRF) site contains information of interest to anyone involved in providing services for synthesis, sequencing, or use of DNA and protein.

This Emory University Web site offers an extensive set of illustrated tutorials designed to teach the biology of cancer. Developed for cancer patients, friends and families of cancer patients, and health professionals, CancerQuest aims to "inform the curious and empower current cancer patients and survivors of cancer with a better understanding of the disease process and the approaches currently...
Coffee Break: NCBI Bookshelf

The National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) has been publishing Coffee Break since 1999. This resource combines recent biomedical discoveries with NCBI tools and makes for an edifying read. It's perfect for advanced high school students and college undergraduates who are keeping up on the latest in biotech breakthroughs. Typical articles sport titles like, "From the Statue of Liberty...
Human Genome Resources

In an effort to track the progress of and provide access to the work of the Human Genome Project (see the October 14, 1998 Scout Report for Science & Engineering), the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) of the National Library of Medicine (NLM) has expanded their Web resource. An international research program "designed to construct detailed genetic and physical maps of the human...
Jena Library of Biological Macromolecules (JenaLib)

The Institute for Molecular Biotechnology (Jena, Germany) provides this repository of molecular structures, featuring selected VRML (as well as two dimensional) images of "building blocks," and "macromolecular structures." Included among the images are RNA structures from the protein database at the Brookhaven National Laboratory, as well as over 250 DNA and protein structures. Sequence and...
Mount Sinai Hospital: Blueprint

Led by Dr. Christopher Hogue of the Samuel Lunenfeld Research Institute at Mount Sinai Hospital the Blueprint Initiative "develops, hosts and maintains public biological databases and Bioinformatics software tools such as BIND, SeqHound and Distributed Folding." The Blueprint research program also has a sister node located at the National University of Singapore. In addition to providing access to...
Profiles in Science: The Daniel Nathans Papers

Daniel Nathans was a molecular biologist whose work with restriction enzymes provided one of the keystones of "the new genetics". His work in this area quickly became one of the essential tools of molecular biology, and in 1987 he received the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for this crucial work. This collection from the National Library of Medicine's "Profiles in Science" series brings...
Protist Information Server

The Protist Information Server is available through the Soken Taxa Web Server and Japan Science and Technology Corporation. Intended as a resource for research and education, the Protist Information Server contains over 31,000 images of protists representing 487 genera and 1617 species. Users will also find over 500 QuickTime movies, tons of related Web links, a recently added list of biodiversity...
