Gateways for Biosciences
The following resources provide organised links to a wide range of biosciences web sites. Unlike search engines, these are usually selective and make a serious attempt at evaluating the resources before inclusion.
Biological Sciences (Intute)
Offers free access to a searchable catalogue of Internet sites in diverse subject areas including biology, biochemistry, genetics and molecular biology. This is part of the Intute hub.
National Center for Biotechnology Information
Includes GenBank, the NIH genetic sequence database.
Medicine including Dentistry (Intute)
This subject gateway provides access to some of the best web resources for medicine and dentistry.
From the National Library of Medicine, these pages provide links to subject lists of resources, medical dictionaries, and pre-prepared Medline searches. The searches are carried out on the Pub Med Service and are available for a range of common medical subjects.
As an alternative to the general search engines such as Google, use one of the following specialised engines. These will help you access a more selective range of web resources.
Elsevier Science search engine designed for the research scientist. Scirus searches the content of sites such as ScienceDirect, MEDLINE on BioMedNet, Beilstein on ChemWeb, Neuroscion, BioMed Central and Patents from the USPTO.
A meta-search engine that searches across over 75 web sites of high quality medical information. Provides links to the largest collection of evidence-based material on the web.
Please note: these sites provide links to other sites offering biosciences related images. Some material may be downloaded and used free of charge but other material is strictly copyrighted and may be used only after having obtained explicit permission from the rightful owner.
An archive of photographs and audio recordings of endangered species digitally preserved for education and research purposes.
