All sites are Open Access, unless noted.  

GENERAL / BIOLOGY / ANATOMY & PHYSIOLOGY TEXT BOOKS / EDUCATION

Cengage Brain.Com.   For the Solomon Text.   It is from an older edition but still available & free!

Free Book Center. Links to numerous online versions of science books to view and download - all at no cost.

Hole's A&P.  This is a lower level A&P text but their site has some useful stuff and it is free.

Kimball's Textbook of General Biology.   Online Version of  Dr. Kimballs Online Biology Text.

Life - The Science of Biology, 9th Edition.  From the New Sadava text - a nice text I taught from years ago.  It seems most stuff is free.

Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Open Courseware.  Lecture/podcasts for general biology.  How good is the teaching?

Online Biology Textbook.  From Estrella Mountain Community College in Arizona.

Open Stax College. Free textbooks from Rice University: A&P, Biology, Pschology, Algebra, etc.

Raven's Biology.  Major's level biology .

Scitable.  From the journal Nature.  Excellent : primarily cell biology, genetics & Ecology.   Has E-text books, discussion groups, etc.

Seeley, Stephens & Tates A&P Online Learning Center.   Open access.   Quizzes, Animations, etc.  We once used this text.

Study Techniques.  How do you learn?   Nice links to NCLEX, GRE and other standardized tests.


JOURNALS 

-Most listed allow access to complete research and review articles from their archives, something that may not last too much longer! (you must have a paid subscription to view current issues).  There are many other journals (obviously) but they are too cheap to allow access to back issues - like Nature, Science & Cell

ASM Journals.  Access journals from the American Society of Microbiology, e.g. Jnl. Bacteriology, Jnl. Virology, Molecular & Cell Biology.  ASM is the best!

Genetics.  Papers on classical, molecular & population genetics.

Nature.  Premier bio-science journal of the world.  Limited access (mostly to news articles) but you must first register. Don't you love how the richest journals (Nature, Science and Cell) don't provide free access?

Nucleic Acids Research.   Papers on molecular genetics and nucleic acid biochemistry.

Journal of Biological Chemistry.   Papers on biochemistry and molecular biology.

Journal of Cell Biology.   Papers on all areas of cell biology.

PNAS - Proceeding of the National Academy of Sciences.  All areas of biology and other areas of science.

Public Library of Science - PLOS.   NPO that supports open access.   Contains links to their journals.


NON-JOURNAL SCIENCE PUBLICATIONS

Discover Magazine.  Articles on all science topics - often biology.  Limited access.

The Scientist.  "The news journal for the life scientist."  From UPenn and its free - you may have to sign up.

New York Times Science Section.   Very good news!

Scientific American.  Full articles.

Science News.  From the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) - not full access - don't you love how the richest journals (Science, Cell and Nature) don't provide free access?

NCBI - National Center for Biotechnology Information.   Links to Genbank, genome biology, pubmed, etc. from the National Institute of Health (NIH).

Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man.  Part of NCBI - Great but shouldn't they say OMIH?

Protein Data Bank.   Database of  JMOL / RASMOL images of proteins.

Protein Explorer.  Allows visualization and manipulation of macromolecules, mostly proteins.

Protopedia.  Encyclopedia of proteins with 3D visualization tools of crystal structures.  Impressive!
