Cell Sites - information and images useful in both lecture and lab

Added December 8, 2004
DNA Interactive This site is maintained by the Dolan DNA Learning Center at the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. The site is divided into six sections, each section offering text materials, excellent graphics, and simulations. Explore all of the sections!

Cellupedia This model site on the cell is graphically oriented, including all of the major topics that one would like to cover during an introductory course in cell biology. The site has 14 chapters, including: basics, before cells (molecules), origin of cells, cell basics, cell functions, cellular processes, cell metabolism, cell signaling, to name a few. The most interactive part - CellEv - is a Java applet that is currently down. CellEv is a strategy game to be played with others on the Internet, where the object is to out-evolve your cellular competition. Other interactive elements (in addition to CellEv include message boards, news and a timeline history of cell biology. There are also well chosen links, a search engine and ~1300 word glossary.

Web Atlas of Cellular Structures Using Light and Confocal Microscopy Subcellular structures and organelle images are shown on these pages, viewed using fluorescent probes for nucleic acids and specific proteins. Six topics are currently included: the nucleus & microtubules, actin & microtubules, nucleus & actin, endoplasmic reticulum, Golgi apparatus and stages of mitosis. The images are excellent (and in some cases irreplaceable), but the text content is incomplete and perhaps best complemented by a more complete textbook (or cell biology site).
