The Life Sciences Resource for Schools
TO ACCESS THE INFORMATION LISTED BELOW, CLICK HERE.
The field of Life Science seeks to investigate and explain living things in the world around us. Some life scientists examine the behavior of animals and seek to predict how they will act in variable situations. Others examine the life cycles of animals in order to help preserve the species.

Bioinformatics
Bioinformatics is a relatively new field in Life Science and involves using computers while investigating life science information. Computers are used to characterize and store genetic information that is learned about particular life forms. This is sometimes also referred to as computational molecular biology, and is its most common use. Computers are necessary when dealing with large amounts of DNA sequencing. Computers are also very useful when compiling large amounts of research material on any biological project. Statistics are more easily figured and examined, and determinations can be more quickly made about research that has been done. Some other bioinformatic efforts have been, and are continuing to be, genome assembly, drug design, protein structure prediction and alignment, pattern recognition, and data mining.

  • Bioinformatics Fact sheet: The National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) introduces the reader to bioinformatics and genomic technology with the underlying definition, the use of a biological database, and the databases used by the NCBI uses to access and organize data. It also seeks to explain the importance of bioinformatics in many aspects of modern biology.

  • The Genomics and Bioinformatics Group: The group maintains this highly technical website for use by molecular biologists to access the necessary computational tools needed for their statistical and molecular research.

  • Genome.gov | Understanding Bioinformatics and Sequencing: The National Human Genome Research Institute is supported by the federal government and has discovered the importance and necessity of bioinformatics in modern-day biology. This site demonstrates this importance by introducing the reader to computational molecular biology of DNA sequencing as well as well as the steps to finding this information through bioinformatics.

  • Bioinformatics Introduction | the genomic revolution: This site defines bioinformatics and discusses the importance not only of computers in DNA sequencing, but then applies this further to genetic diseases.

  • Bioinformatics Organization: This website is the home base for the Bioinformatics Organization which is open and free to the public but also maintains a professional membership with more rights and privileges, including voting rights. The organization conducts and shares experiments within computational molecular biology, provides data software, and provides seminar information to its members, among other things.

  • BSP:: The Open Bioinformatics Journal: This is an open journal site focusing on the subject of bioinformatics. Biologists may share their experiments and scientific journals and discoveries in an open forum on this site.

Biology
Biology is a study of life and live organisms, from the tiniest unicellular to the most complex on the earth. It is concerned with the makeup of the organism, the function, the evolution, and its taxonomy. There are several breakdowns within the umbrella of biology, and these create specificity within the field. Some of these subdivisions include cellular biology, bioinformatics, molecular biology, ecology, and physiology. The field itself is so large, and there is so much to examine within the life of all the species on earth, that is it nearly impossible for an individual not to specialize in a particular biological discipline.

  • Welcome to the USGS: Biological Resource Discipline: The Biological Resource Discipline (BRD) is supported by the United States Geological Survey (USGS) for the purpose of providing the necessary information and resources for biologists to manage and conserve the natural resources of the United States. There are several informational links on the page including ecosystems, contaminants, wildlife, invasive species, and fisheries, among others, as well as articles and links on relevant and current concerns.

  • US National Science Foundation (NSF): Provides information about grant money available for biology research and particular research opportunities as well as information about ongoing research. Also includes information about completed projects and media presentations.

  • Biology and Nature: Scientific glossaries of biology and nature terms provided by the federal government to help students better understand particular biological concepts.

  • Biological Scientists: This page was developed by the Bureau of Labor in order to introduce readers to the occupations available to biological scientists. It gives an overview of the different work that is available, the training and education that is involved, the salary one can expect, and the job outlook and earning potential.

  • An On-Line Biology Book: A complete online biology book is provided for its readers by Estrella Community College. Chapters include information from cell division to plant diversity, from systems of the body to biological diversity of animals.

  • Science Daily: An online magazine for biology scientists. Included are articles, videos, and pictures on latest biology news and issues.

Genetics and Genomics
Genetics is the field of biology that is concerned with heredity and its role in the development of the individual traits in an organism. The first individual to begin examining genetics through the investigation of genes was Gregory Mendel in the nineteenth century. He discovered that traits appearing in and within an individual appeared on their DNA and that these DNA would combine from each parent and be passed down to their offspring. Genomics is the extensive study of the DNA sequence and mapping and its use in particular situations such as disease.

  • Genomics|Home: The Center for Disease Control and Prevention provides information to biologists and the public for use of identifying the role of genomics in disease patterns in families and individuals. There are many articles and research information on subjects such as genetic testing, family health, and particular diseases such as sickle cell anemia, heart disease, breast cancer, and autism, among others.

  • GNN - Genetics and Genomics Timeline: The Genome News Network offers a timeline for genetic and genomic history and research, beginning with the nineteenth century and continuing through many research projects and papers to the modern day.

  • Main Page - WikiGenetics: This Wiki page is very comprehensive and introduces many subjects on genetics including subjects on the genomes, genetic science, health and disease, genetic testing, ancestry, and research projects.

  • Genome.gov | National Human Genome Research Institute: The articles on this site pertain to current genome research done that is relevant to the public and to other biologists. One can choose whether to read the section for patients, educators, health professionals, students, grant applicants, or news media.

  • Genetics Home Reference: This site, which is sponsored by many federal and private organizations, is ideal for the layperson, and it provides answers to many questions about genetics. There is information about the genetics of certain health conditions; a glossary of genetic terms; a list of 700 genes and their roles; associated diseases chromosomes; and a list of resources to be accessed. There are also learning activities and other articles to read as well.

  • Biotechnology, Genetics and Breeding: Plants and Crops: The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) makes this site available so that biologists and farmers may better understand the role of genetics in breeding and yielding the best crops and food. There are many articles available, facts from the USDA biotechnology department, sources from Darwin and Mendel, and the opportunity to ask questions as well.

Human Biochemistry
Human Biochemistry is the study of all the processes that take place within the human body to create it and make it go. It examines the chemical reactions of carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, and nucleic acids as they mix with one another and react to one another and keep the human body functioning as it needs to function. Scientists use chromatography, dual polarisation interferometry, and X-ray diffraction, among other techniques, to examine the metabolic pathways of a cell, and they can investigate and discover things such as the citric acid cycle and the glycolysis cycle. These discoveries are very important, because they can show us how to eat more properly for the most healthful outcome, and they may explain why our bodies react certain ways to certain foods.

  • The Biochemistry of Human Addiction: This article, offered by the United States Department of Energy, examines the role of biochemistry in addiction. The article focuses on dopamine in the brain and its biological contribution to addiction.

  • Biochemical Toxicology: The United States Food and Drug Administration (USDA) provides information about the toxicity of certain drugs and how this is affected by biochemistry in humans. The body processes drugs in much the same way that other food is processed in the body, and this article examines this phenomenon.

  • Human Biochemistry of the Isoprostane Pathway: This technical article, written for the Journal of Biological Chemistry, examines the isoprostane pathway, and the free radicals that are implicated in many different diseases. Understanding the biochemistry of these chemical reactions may help cure or alleviate some of the symptoms of such diseases.

  • Human Biochemistry – C (Standard) Exam Revision Notes: A simplistic page designed to demonstrate the use of food on the body to complete the necessary chemical reactions in human biochemistry.

Immunology
Immunology is the branch of biology that deals with disease and the immune system of the human body. The fact that some people developed immunity to disease was noted in 430 BC when the plague in Athens killed many, but that those who had recovered from the disease could nurse those who currently had the disease and not become ill a second time. It was during the 19th and 20th centuries, however, that scientists were able to identify the relationship between the body and the immune system and how antibodies were created to keep a person from falling ill again. The primary immune system consists of the thymus and bone marrow, but also contributing to the process are the spleen, the tonsils, the lymph nodes, the adenoids, the lymph vessels, and skin. Clinical immunologists study diseases that may be caused or may affect the organs of the immune system such as immunodeficiency diseases such as HIV or autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis. Developmental immunologists study a particular immune system’s ability to react to an antigen. This is dependant on many things such as age, sex, and health of the person.

  • Introduction to Immunology: The Biology Project at the University of Arizona is a multiple choice and true/false quiz that can be taken to introduce the user to the subject of immunology. Any correct answer is given a brief explanation. An incorrect answer leads the user to a tutorial on the subject.

  • Microbiology/Virology/Immunology/Bacteriology/Parasitology: This textbook online is provided by the University of South Carolina, and it examines the role of immunology in depth, and also looks at bacteriology, virology, parasitology, and mycology.

  • Diet, Genomics and Immunology Lab: Home: The US Dept of Agriculture Research Service takes the opportunity to explore the role of genomics in the immune response in a person. The goal is to develop mineral and vitamin nutrition to aid a particular individual’s immune system to fight disease.

  • The Journal of Immunology: This online journal, sponsored by the American Association of Immunologists, contains articles on current issues of immunologists. Readers can post and read archived articles as well as search articles on a specific subject matter.

  • Clinical Immunology Society: This online site for the Clinical Immunology Society is an opportunity for many clinical immunologists to read and submit research and articles on diseases that attack or affect the immune system. Conferences are posted on the site as well as job opportunities and fellowship awards.

  • Medical Immunology: This site offers articles on many subjects of immunology. It speaks to a more technical audience, and clicking within the article box can access related articles.

Medicinal Botany
Botany is the study of plants, and some biologists commit themselves to the investigation of particular medicinal qualities of particular plants. Plants had been used for medical purposes in Ancient Greece, and herbalists, as they were called, passed their knowledge down from generation to generation. Botany, as we know it today, did not develop until the 17th century, but even today it is evident that some plants can well be used to heal one particular ailment or another. Medicinal botanists study these particular plants, and they seek to acquire information about other plants that could have the same affect on particular ailments or diseases.

  • Medicinal Botany: An article dealing with Medicinal Botany and the history of the practice. It begins in ancient Athens and takes the reader through the Renaissance biologists and writers.

  • medicinal botany: This article regarding medicinal phytochemistry is presented by the Environmental Health Perspectives on Herbal medicines. It gives examples of particular herbs that are known to be beneficial to the health of humans, and it explains their effect.

  • Medicinal Botany Time Line: This is a time line provided by Google that traces the beginnings of medicinal botany to the year 1768 and continues through to the present year of 2010.

  • Why_We_Study_Medical_Botany: A technical article written by Dr. Charles McWilliams discussing Medical Botany and its role in biology and in medicine and pharmacology.

  • Botany: This discussion begins with an explanation of botany and continues with an introduction to medicinal botany and its role in biology. The writer explains the work he and his colleagues have done within the field.

Oncology
Oncology is the study of tumors, and, most notably, cancer, and all stages and aspects of the disease. It is a branch of medicine, and, therefore, a branch of biology, as a physician has to rely on his knowledge of immunology, genetics, as well as other branches of biology to determine how the cancer will react in a person and what course of action to take to cure or confine the disease.

  • Oncology News, Journals, Drugs, Regimens: Oncology STAT is dedicated to any type of cancer, its symptoms, its treatments, and its cures. There are numerous articles written by doctors and researchers, and one can read by choosing a particular form of cancer or by browsing the articles.

  • American Society of Clinical Oncology - ASCO: This organization has an annual meeting for its members and interested oncologists and researchers about cancer research and care.

  • Oncology News - Topix: This site has current news stories about cancer research and success stories and headlines from around the world. This site is not particularly a physicians’ site alone, but it is easily accessible to all readers and would be of interest to patients as well as researchers.

  • -- Comparative Oncology -- NCBI Bookshelf: Comparative oncology is the study of cancer in animals, and, most notably, in pets. This site would be especially interesting to veterinarians, but many pet owners may want to read the studies as well.

  • Dictionary of Cancer Terms - National Cancer Institute: This glossary is provided by the National Cancer Institute and contains many technical terms probably not known by the general population. This may be especially interesting and useful to patients.

Additional Life Science Fields
There are many fields that biologists can specialize in after fulfilling their core requirements in education. In addition to the fields listed above, several other fields include zoology, which is the specific study of animals; ichthyology, which is the study of fish; and marine biology, which is the study of marine life. Some life scientists are interested in conserving the world in which we live, and they are most interested in how life responds to that world. These scientists may study ecology, and atmospheric scientists study how the atmosphere itself affects life on earth. Cryobiology is the study of cold on living things, and ethology is the study of animal behavior. The number of ways that scientists can study life on this earth are as endless as the number of animals on the earth.
