BEN: BioSciEdNet

Welcome to the BEN portal, the National Science Digital Library (NSDL) Pathway for biological sciences education. The BEN Portal provides access to education resources from BEN Collaborators and is managed by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). Over 15,868 reviewed resources covering 77 biological sciences topics are available. BEN resources can help you engage student interest, shorten lesson preparation time, provide concept updates, and develop curricula that are in line with national standards for content, use of animals and humans, and student safety.

DNAtube

DnaTube is a scientific site providing video based studies, lectures and seminars… to allow a self-growing community to share their scientific experiences and videos. One of the best features of the DnaTube.com, is that it supports other types of scientific works through flash animations, powerpoints, in addition to videos. DnaTube is a non-profit video site which is aiming to be a visual scientific resource for its visitors.

Howard Hughes Medical Institute's BioInteractive Animation Console

HHMI, a nonprofit medical research organization that ranks as one of the nation’s largest philanthropies, plays a powerful role in advancing biomedical research and science education in the United States. It engages in the direct conduct of research in the basic life sciences. A variety of award-winning publications, videos, and other free materials can be ordered through HHMI's online catalog. Cool Science is a collection of innovative science education resources—produced by HHMI and its grantees—for curious people of all ages. The resources include virtual labs, biological animations and videos, lesson plans, and much more. The News section features the latest developments in biomedical research and related fields.

Federation of American Scientists

The case studies presented here will help define the issues associated with “dual-use” research and security in the research lab. They include interviews with researchers whose legitimate scientific work could potentially be used for questionable or harmful endeavors, as well as a historical perspective on their research, bioterrorism, and research regulations…. primary scientific research papers and discussion questions…are meant to raise awareness about the importance of responsible biological research.

Botanical Society of America Online Image Collection

Through the generosity of the BSA Teaching Section, BSA Education Committee and individual donors, the Botanical Society of America has made a collection of approximately 800 images available for instructional use. Currently, there are 14 collections of images: Plant Geography, Plant Morphology, Phloem Development, Xylem Development, Floral Ontogeny, Lichens, Economic Botany, Carnivorous Plants, Organography, Pollen, Paleobotany, Plant Defense Mechanisms, Plant Anatomy, and Cellular Communication Channels. Digital images are provided in three resolutions: thumbnail, medium and high resolution.

Labwrite

LabWrite is an instructional project originating from North Carolina State University and sponsored by the National Science Foundation.  LabWrite is a free, online student resource that provides just-in-time instructions for students throughout the lab experience—what students need, when they need it. It allows students to take full advantage of one of the most important activities for learning in the sciences—writing good lab reports. LabWrite enhances the entire lab experience as a learning experience by structuring each lab into four stages that provide the foundation for the students’ website: PreLab, InLab, PostLab, and LabCheck.

Dolan DNA Learning Center

The Dolan DNA Learning Center (DNALC) is the world's first science center devoted entirely to genetics education and is an operating unit of Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, an important center for molecular genetics research.  [The] sites are accessed world-wide and cover broad topics, including basic heredity, genetic disorders, eugenics, the discovery of the structure of DNA, DNA sequencing, cancer, and plant genetics.

CSERD

The Computational Science Education Reference Desk, a Pathways project of the National Science Digital Library and funded by the National Science Foundation, aims to help students learn about computational science and to help teachers incorporate it into the classroom. CSERD attempts to collect a catalog of quality resources from across the internet. A forum for the Verification, Validation, and Accreditation of catalog items both by users and by expert reviewers is provided. Original computational science resources for use in education can be created.

Earth Exploration Toolbook (EET)

The Earth Exploration Toolbook is a collection of computer-based Earth science activities. Each activity, or chapter, introduces one or more data sets and an analysis tool that enables users to explore some aspect of the Earth system.

Acid-Base Titration Applet

This applet is an application that allows you to perform a quantitative chemical analysis to determine the unknown concentration of the acid base reactant.

Biochemistry of Metabolism

These materials are used to teach, in studio format, aspects of metabolism within the 2-semester Molecular Biochemistry course at Rensselaer. Lecture Notes are provided in web pages for each class as linear text with illustrations, and as PowerPoint slides. A list of recent journal articles (mostly review articles) is provided for each topic. Potential test questions (essay questions) and self-study quizzes (mostly short answer questions) are provided as study aids. Animations are also provided to illustrate some concepts. Professor Harry Roy has developed a set of interactive self-study tutorials, Biochemistry Simulations, in which concepts of enzyme kinetics, enzyme regulation, and other topics are presented via analysis of simulated data.

Molecular Logic

The goal of the Molecular Logic project is to improve the ability of all students to understand fundamental biological phenomena in terms of the interactions of atoms and molecules. The Molecular Logic project aims to do this by enhancing biology courses with guided explorations of powerful atomic and molecular computational models. These models are embedded in an easily implemented database linked to both typical textbooks and standards.

The Virtual Museum of Minerals and Molecules

The Virtual Museum of Minerals and Molecules™ is a web-based focal point and resource for 3-D visualizations of molecules and minerals. The visualizations utilize the Jmol applet in a web browser, which allows them to be interactively zoomed and rotated so they can be viewed from all angles, much as with a real molecule. They can also be programmed with highlighting features that allow identification of specific atoms, structural sub-components, and mineralogical planes. The 3-D visualizations are incorporated into stand-alone HTML (WWW) instructional modules that combine text, graphics, molecular formulae, highlighting features, electron micrographs, and other appropriate instructional aids and materials.

 

Molecular Symmetry

Welcome to the world of symmetry! The resources contained within this web site are designed to help students learn concepts of molecular symmetry and to help faculty teach concepts of molecular symmetry. The materials are designed for a variety of levels. The Symmetry Tutorial is an interactive point group symmetry tutorial. It guides students through all of the symmetry elements and operations, with interactive displays and animations. The Symmetry Gallery is a collection of nearly 70 unique molecules with interactive display of all symmetry elements and animation of all operations. Using the same set of molecules from the Gallery, the Symmetry Challenge includes a flow chart that details the process of determining the point group of each molecule.

River Web Water Quality Simulator

 

The RiverWeb Water Quality Simulator (WQS) depicts the effects of various land uses on water quality in an archetypal watershed. By limiting each sub-watershed to one land use, the effect of that land use can be seen on the quality of the water that students "test" within its boundaries. The cumulative effect of the combined land use determines the water quality shown by the indicator values found at the common outflow. After the user logs in, a map of the archetypal watershed appears.
