  • Well thought out
  • None
Subtitled "Tools for Structural Biology Education and Training", this site by Gale Rhodes at the University of South Maine has an educational mission that it performs very well. Gail's Graphics Manifesto sets the tone for the site, emphasizing that if you're not training biochemistry students in molecular graphics, "You are failing them in an important way." The site's numerous sections dedicated to molecular imaging/representation are well organized. They include a tutorial on Bioinformatics for Beginners, Tools for Learning and Teaching Biochemistry, Essential Skills (excellent primer on basic molecular biology skills), and a Glossary of Terms. A lot of work went into this and it pays off handsomely.

The Triple Package and Success

Union College professors Joshua Hart and Christopher Chabris counter that intelligence, conscientiousness, and economic advantage are the most likely elements of success, regardless of ethnicity. Do you think that Hart-Chabris make a better argument for achieving success than the Chua-Rubenfeld theory?
