Strong Points: Diversity in resources
Weak Points: Nothing major


A website certainly doesn’t always need bells and whistles in order to be a great resource. Take, for instance, the “external scientific toolkit” page through the information technology office of The Rockefeller University. Simple and succinct, this single page is like a molecular Swiss Army Knife—sure it’s small, but it’s pretty darn handy. Within this “toolkit” is a list of links to a variety of data analysis (or just generally useful) resources. The links are grouped into 23 categories. As but a small sample, some of these categories are: alignment editing, biochemistry, gene prediction, organism databases, protein 3-D structure, and RNAi. So the next time you find yourself in need of a tried-and-true online resource to, say, analyze RNA secondary structure, there’s no toolkit with faster or easier access than this one.
