Publication Resources

  • Agrifor – searchable catalogue of Internet sites covering agriculture, food and forestry
  • BioMedNet – members are able to access free content on the site such as news stories, articles in our bi-monthly magazine, latest research updates and abstracts to articles from over 300 Elsevier journals including Cell Press and the Trends and Current Opinion titles. Also has a very useful set of Research Tools on a range of subjects headings.
  • Crittenden Mapping References – This collection of publications was selected to be of possible interest to animal genome mappers and was from monthly posts to the ANGENMAP list in the past a few years. They represent advancements in technology and review progress in genome mapping. They cover the period 1978 to current year, but are not considered exhaustive
  • Genome Biology – serves the biological research community as an international forum, both in print and on the web, for the dissemination, discussion and critical review of information about all areas of biology informed by genomic research. Key objectives are to provide a guide to the rapidly developing resources and technology in genomics and its impact on biological research, to publish large datasets and extensive results that are not readily accommodated in traditional journals, and to help establish new standards and nomenclature for post-genomic biology
  • Journal of Biology – a new journal edited by Martin Raff and an internationally renowned editorial board. The journal aims to publish outstanding research articles from all areas of biology and make them immediately accessible to all, free of charge
  • PubMed – a service of the National Library of Medicine, provides access to over 12 million MEDLINE citations back to the mid-1960’s and additional life science journals. PubMed includes links to many sites providing full text articles and other related resources
  • Web of Science (WoS) – ISI Web of Science Service for UK Education
