The Virtual Cell

The Virtual Cell is not so dazzling as Cells Alive; the content, though, is extensive and interactive.

The Biology Project

The Biology site at the University of Arizona is intended for students in grades 7-12. It displays up-to-date graphics and activities for the study of cells, including immunology. Many of the exemplars illustrates the development of HIV.

RasMol & Chime - UMASS

RasMol & Chime, molecular visualization freeware (free software), provides 3D visualization models of proteins and acids, helpful for grasping the concepts in several of the above sites.

Biology in Motion

Biology in Motion,developed by an inspiring teacher, uses the Web's animation capacities to illustrate such phenomenon as evolution, the cardiovascular system, and cell division. There are also free links to other topics and games. A dash of humor is present, too.

Insect hearing helps nanoscience

Using an Atomic Force Microscope, physicists and biologists at Bristol University can now "see" how locusts and moths use their hearing systems to detect very faint vibrations. Images the atomic scale.

Centre of the Cell

Centre of the Cell is a science education center hosted by Queen Mary University of London. It is the first science education center in the world to be located within working biomedical research laboratories.

Their web site includes an extensive on-line "Learn & Play" section, with games, lesson plans, and topics such as ethics and patient journeys.

Perhaps because "inside" environments are not as readily accessible in the real world as it is in the virtual world these sites have been noticed in the telecommunications world.
