This site is a member of the ALtruis Biomedical Network and is a central portal for access to sites containing information on biomedical research. Areas that will appear here are genomic research, biotechnology, molecular biology, cell biology, proteomics, cellomics, physiomics, biochemistry, toxicology and pharmacology.
provides information about the technology and application of DNA arrays and DNA microarrays in laboratory experiments. Also included are links to commercial DNA array products.
contains information on cell junctions, extracellular matrix and cell and tissue types. Epithelial, connective, bone, cartilage, nervous and blood tissues are covered here. Muscle tissue and physiology are treated elsewhere in the ABN.
contains information about the historic milestones of molecular biology, nucleic acids, and techniques.
is a source of general pharmacology information. Pharmacokinetics, pharmacognosy and the process required to bring a new drug to market are discussed.
provides basic information regarding chemistry and biochemistry, in particular. Lipids, carbohydrates, amino acid, protein and nucleic acid chemistry are discussed. Basic methods are discussed as well.
is a source of information on the lipoproteins present in human serum such as LDL, HDL, and VLDL.
The designers of the ALtruis Biomedical Network are healthcare professionals and scientists with relevant expertise in the areas of biology and genomic research, and anticipate launching additional websites.
