This series was set up by the Expert-Center for Taxonomic Identification (ETI) of the University of Amsterdam on an initiative of UNESCO. Its aim is to provide scientists, students, and other interested parties with easily accessible, high-quality taxonomic and ecological information on the world’s biological diversity.
DNA and Proteins
The challenge of telling the story of DNA and proteins is to keep it simple but at the same time scientifically accurate. The information in this CD-ROM is presented in a continuous, basic level story-line, while the advanced level details are optional. A simple navigation system allows switching between the levels and topics without the risk of ‘losing track’. Numerous illustrations and animations support the textual information. An index containing over 200 entries provides direct access to the many topics covered in the sections. A diagnostic test with feedback helps students to grasp fundamental concepts. The user-friendly nature of the program makes it ideal for group teaching or self-study. It can be used as a stand-alone resource or to complement text books.
