Interactivity is key to most of this material. Don't forget to run the cursor over any gaps in the text, coloured text like below, unlabelled diagrams and other links in the text or margin...... More explanation is available.
This page leads to menus to other sections of the site:

Books and other media
Last updated 25/01/15
Latest updates:
Teixobactin (3-D molecule file) - the answer to antibiotic resistance?
Virus diseases extended with images - now including Ebola; This year's Howlers
New (molecules) file: Stevioside and updated file: Artificial sweeteners
Some units resized, menus re-jigged, for smart phones & tablets, :
Healthy diet improved, Fungi (with sound), Enzymes (several animations),
Also a variety of 3-D molecules - examples: DNA, protein structure

I am quite proud of most of this content. Although some of it has been aimed at various syllabuses/specifications, other parts are open-ended, with a view to explain biological phenomena and educate accordingly.

I am particularly keen to highlight my take on the molecular structure of the most recent new antibiotic teixobactin which was announced this month.

Perhaps you might like to investigate other sections of the site, or suggest other candidate material.
