Having trouble putting together that lecture on Mendelian genetics? Need a refresher on stem cells? Check out the materials stashed at BioEd Online from Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas. Most of the content is geared toward the high school level, but some of it would work for introductory college classes. You can download more than 30 slide sets that delve into subjects from cloning to population ecology. Other slides offer help in the lab, explaining techniques such as using a bright-field microscope. Visitors can also cue up some 40 video lectures. The Hot Topics section features short articles on the prospects for a bird flu pandemic and other current issues. The site also posts news stories from Nature.
