  • Good coverage
  • Not fully of interest in U.S.
Gulp. The size of this one is a little hard to get a handle on describing in the short amount of space I have here, but that’s what I get paid to do, so here it goes. BTGenes is a sprawling website apparently based in India that covers the field of biotechnology (BT in the name stands for biotechnology.) Main areas of interest at the site include News (rather out of date), Today’s Gene (basically a commercial for a selected biotech company), Articles (interesting articles spanning molecular biology), Biotech Companies (listing of companies mostly in India), Nanotechnology (wide-ranging content), and Bioinformatics (extensive links), among many others. A section on bioethics is extensive and welcome, but the Careers section is a rare miss, focusing curiously on parent-child relationships. There are listings of jobs (abroad) with immigration info as well. Clearly, some of the content will not be of interest in the U.S., but the majority of it will.
