This companion Website to the Nova show "Bioterror" that broadcast last week is divided into several sections such as History of Biowarfare, Agents of Bioterror, and Global Guide to Bioweapons. The Flash features studded throughout may help to hold younger visitors' attention (in particular, high school-aged users). The Global Guide section, for example, has a clickable map explaining the status of different countries' bioweapons programs, and the Making Vaccines section takes users through the process of creating different vaccines with a step-by-step Flash exercise. The site also offers interviews with several bioweapons experts, the full text of the Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention, and a useful list of resources for further information. There is a teacher's section on the site as well, but when we visited, the content had not yet been added here.
