Labhoo.com – Searching 40,000 Lab & Life Science Websites
I could have sworn I’d reviewed this site in the past but my database, which has never failed me before, doesn’t contain this URL. The site wins major points for providing a database of significant websites (40,000) in the life sciences. Information is organized in multiple ways including a massive alphabetized list of companies, a searchable database (that didn’t seem to function when I visited), and a listing of 12 hypertext main categories (Cell Biology, Real-Time PCR, Drug Discovery, etc.). The site is described as free to use but login is required for full access. It is not clear what is obtained by logging in nor is it apparent that the login account is free. The site is also sluggish to respond to clicks. That combined with the apparently nonfunctioning search engine, make Labhoo a major disappointment.
