Looking for textbooks on cell biology, molecular biology, or genetics? Check the shelves at this digital biomedical library from the National Center for Biotechnology Information, the same people who bring you the PubMed abstracts database. Full-text versions of six classroom staples are available, including the third edition of Molecular Biology of the Cell, Molecular Cell Biology, and C. elegans II. The most recent addition is a timely chapter on smallpox and the vaccinia virus (the source of smallpox vaccine) from a textbook on vaccination; upcoming titles include Developmental Biology by Scott Gilbert and Cancer Medicine. You can search the texts for a specific subject or just browse, and all have been hyperlinked to relevant abstracts in PubMed.
