CellDeath.de

URL:www.celldeath.de/mainfram.htm
  • Great links
  • Lacking content in some areas

Whether you pronounce it “AY-POP-TOE-SIS” or “AP-O-TOE-SIS,” scientists with a morbid interest in cell death will enjoy CellDeath.de, an initiative started and maintained by Ph.D. students. The site is clearly a work-in-progress, as evidenced by some blank pages and outdated conference dates/publications. However, the scaffolding is in place to make this site a hub for apoptosis research. Currently, there is an expansive encyclopedia (or rather, an “apoptopedia”) of apoptosis-related terms, as well as a collection of protocols. The links page features not only apoptosis-related sites, but also scientific glossaries and a very useful list of scientific databases. Additionally, there is an incomplete list of labs studying apoptosis, to which any cell death researcher can add him/herself.  This site has great potential, but it is dependent on users contributing information—so get the word out!
