“The explosive story of chemistry is the story of the building blocks that make up our entire world — the elements. From fiery phosphorous to the pure untarnished lustre of gold and the dazzle of violent, violet potassium, everything is made of elements — the earth we walk on, the air we breathe, even us. Yet for centuries this world was largely unknown, and completely misunderstood.

Now you can access links spanning 80 years of seminal physics research
AIP is happy to let you know that live links are now in place for references in all AIP journal articles going back to the very first issue of each. This final stage of an ambitious initiative brings the total of linkable references to the backfiles of AIP journals (see list below) to nearly 4,000,000. The initiative incorporates reference links that extend as far back as 1930 — the year AIP published the debut issue of Review of Scientific Instruments.
An excellent description of the resources available from the European Bioinformatics Institute is published in Nucleic Acids Research, 2010, Vol. 38, Database issue D17-D25.
The EBI site contains a wide array of databases and tools. It also is a site that contains 3D Rotatable Structures. Enter a substance name in the search box at the top of the page and get a summarized view of information available. To see 3D images, choose the Macromolecular Structures section of results. Select which record you want to see and then click on View in PDBsum. Visualization options and tools are on left side. See search example below on Taxol.
The NIST Data Gateway provides easy access to NIST scientific and technical data. These data cover a broad range of substances and properties from many different scientific disciplines. The Gateway includes links to selected free online NIST databases as well as to information on NIST databases available for purchase.
- Search by specific keywords, properties, and substances across a collection of NIST scientific and technical databases. You will get a list of databases most likely to contain the information you need.
- Another feature of the Gateway is a search for articles published in the Journal of Physical and Chemical Reference Data (JPCRD). Links are provided to free, online versions of many articles.
Enviro-Health Links — Nanotechnology provides links to materials on nanotechnology uses and environmental concerns. Also included are links to databases, maps, regulations and policy, and TOXNET and PubMed searches. Provided by: The National Library of Medicine Division of Specialized Information Services.
BIOBASE Corporation will host software training for the PROTEOME databases available to
Stanford University researchers. Learn how to use the PROTEOME databases for systems
