WEB Sites Useful to Scientists, Students, and
By Harold Eddleman, Ph.D.
This page gives information about WWW sites which I use. This list should be useful to scientists and others searching the web for data and information. It is particularly intended for science students and the general public. Just click on the blue underlined URL and your browser will take you to the web location. Notice most domain names begin with www, but not all do so. Notice URLs use lowercase and no spaces. Some of the URLs listed below appear to have spaces, but what appears to be a space is an underscore. All these URLs worked when installed, and I try to keep them up-to-date. If an URL fails, try omitting some of the /???/??? directories at the end of the URL; the remote server may have revised directories. Please email errors and problems to: firstname.lastname@example.org.

Genome Sciences There is a worldwide effort to sequence the genomes of many organisms. The data is becoming available on the web for access by scientists and the general public. Many sciences are required: computer data bases, sequencing chemistry, data transfer, sequence comparators, etc. Some genomes being sequenced are Human, Maize, ..........
