On the Web
This is a brief alphabetized list of Internet sites that may provide you with information for your studies in Biology. The selection process we employ is rather simple and based on such things as; authority of authors, quality of content, usefulness of material for UT curriculum, etc. Of course this list is not complete and will be updated and growing all the time. Your suggestions and comments are welcome.
American Institute for Biological Sciences
A nonprofit 501(c)(3) scientific association dedicated to advancing the biological sciences to promote an increased understanding of all life. Our mission is to promote the use of scientific information to inform decision making and advance biology for the benefit of science and society. This mission is more relevant today than at any other point in our history.
Biological Sciences (BIO) - National Science Foundation
The mission of the Directorate for Biological Sciences (BIO) is to enable discoveries for understanding life. BIO-supported research advances the frontiers of biological knowledge, increases our understanding of complex systems, and provides a theoretical basis for original research in many other scientific disciplines.
Biology Online is the home for everyone who is interested in studying and becoming more familiar with biology, whether you are a teacher, student, scientist or anyone else who shares a passion for Biology. The site aims to educate and promote awareness of all things regarding biology, offering free and easy access to information in the biological sciences. Created in 2001, the site is the worlds most comprehensive database of biology terms, tutorials, and articles.
BioNumbers aims to enable you to find in one minute any useful molecular biology number that can be important for your research.
CELLS alive! represents 30 years of capturing film and computer-enhanced images of living cells and organisms for education and medical research. The site has been available continuously and updated annually since May of 1994.
Encyclopedia of Life
Mission: To increase awareness and understanding of living nature through an Encyclopedia of Life that gathers, generates, and shares knowledge in an open, freely accessible and trusted digital resource.
Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology
Mission: We advance health and well-being by promoting research and education in biological and biomedical sciences through collaborative advocacy and service to our societies and their members.
HHMI BioInteractive brings the power of real science stories into tens of thousands of high school and undergraduate life science classrooms.
iBiology’s mission is to convey, in the form of open-access free videos, the excitement of modern biology and the process by which scientific discoveries are made.
Integrated Taxonomic Information System
Here you will find authoritative taxonomic information on plants, animals, fungi, and microbes of North America and the world.
National Center for Biotechnology Information
The National Center for Biotechnology Information advances science and health by providing access to biomedical and genomic information.
Organization of Biological Field Stations
The mission of the Organization of Biological Field Stations (OBFS) is to help member stations increase their effectiveness in supporting critical research, education, and outreach programs. We pursue this goal in a manner that maximizes diversity, inclusiveness, sustainability, and transparency.
The Plant Atlas is an evolving partnership of herbaria, universities, conservation organizations, government agencies and information technology professionals. Project partners are united by a common need to manage and disseminate vascular and non‐vascular plant information with colleagues and the public. The online Plant Atlas application, originally developed by the University of South Florida, is the tool that these partners have chosen to meet their needs.
Tree of Life Web Project
The Tree of Life Web Project is a collection of information about biodiversity compiled collaboratively by hundreds of expert and amateur contributors. Its goal is to contain a page with pictures, text, and other information for every species and for each group of organisms, living or extinct. Connections between Tree of Life web pages follow phylogenetic branching patterns between groups of organisms, so visitors can browse the hierarchy of life and learn about phylogeny and evolution as well as the characteristics of individual groups.
