DNA From the Beginning

URL:www.dnaftb.org/dnaftb/
  • Excellent educational materials
  • None
I reviewed this one a few years ago when it was housed under the Cold Spring Harbor website, but now it is on its own and it is time for an update. Focused strongly on education and history, DNA From the Beginning divides content on the opening page into three areas—Classical Genetics, Molecules of Genetics, and Genetic Organization/Control. Each section is superbly organized, with photo galleries, audio/video, problems, links, and more. Altogether, the site contains 41 modules under the headings above and each one is informative, well described, and easy to understand. This may be the best basic information about DNA and the molecules of life to be found anywhere on the Internet. A must link for anyone interested in teaching molecular biology, DNA From the Beginning is a no-brainer to recommend here.
