Revision as of 23:30, 15 July 2007

A great place to start, whether you come from a biological, physical or computational background is at Martin Vingron's superb online bioinformatics tutorial. (Begin by choosing a section from the left-hand-side menu bar.)

Tom Smith and Don Emmeluth have produced a nice little exploration of bioinformatics using NCBI resources and tools.

There is a promising set of online lecture notes currently under construction by B. Steipe at the Genzentrum (Gene Center) at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München (University of Munich).

Contents

Chemistry for all

A defiantly frames-free chemistry tutorial site.

Mathematics for biologists

First of all, an almost completely painless introduction to the horrors of the quadratic equation by Peter Whalen, James Walker, and Drew Marticorena.

C. J. Schwarz of the Department of Statistics and Acturial Science, Simon Fraser University has produced a course in statistics which is accompanied by set of sound, online PDF handouts.

Here is a great guide to a whole array of statistical learning/teaching resources prepared by Juha Puranen of the University of Helsinki (English).

General introduction to biology for computer scientists

Estrella Mountain Community College in the States offers this excellent short introduction to biology (actually "The Nature of Science and Biology". It's a great place for keyboard jockeys to start their journey to enlightenment.

Genetics

The Dolan DNA Learning Center at Cold Spring Harbor has an outstanding interactive tutorial introducing genetics. To take full advantage of the multimedia elements you should download the Flash and Real players.

Molecular biology for computer scientists

The Institute of Arable Crop Research Beginner's Guide to Molecular Biology

Protein chemistry for computer scientists

Unilever Education Advanced Series tutorial on proteins.

Cell biology for computer scientists

The University of Arizona has made available a high-quality tutorial in cell biology. Not only does it cover the facts, but it also attempts to introduce some of the philosophy of the field---recommended. Even better, it's also available en Español and in Italiano.

Once you've worked your way through that you might like to see some scanning electron microscope images of some of the structures you've read about taken by members of John Heuser's lab.

Evolution for computer scientists

Bob Patterson maintains his "Darwiniana" with amazing diligence.
