On the web you can find:
- Scritable, a web site developed by Nature magazine with information on cell biology, genetics, and other life sciences.
- DavidRothman.net with links to medical illustrations.
- Innerbody.com for easy to understand, colorful anatomy illustrations.
- Study stack for flash cards in biology and many other subjects. Try the stack at the end of this post to test your knowledge of cell biology. Click the card for the correct answer.
In the library look for:
- Schaum’s easy outline of molecular and cell biology
- Schaum’s easy outlines biology
- Biology essentials for dummies
- Botany for dummies
- The complete idiot’s guide to anatomy illustrated
But that’s not all! For use in the library both campus libraries have models of brains, kidneys, joints, skin, muscle men and many others.
So what is a Golgi apparatus, you might ask? According to the Facts on file dictionary of biology it is an organelle of eukaryotic cells. And for further clarification you’ll have to read up yourself!
