Introducing elegansNet: The Organism Bioinformatics & Research Menu Hubsite for Students, Teachers, Physicians, Biomedical Scientists, and the Public

What does elegansNet provide?

elegansNet is webcasted via multiple channels to serve you in four ways:

Channel 4 (header frame): Provides one-click access to most frequently visited sites covering news, internet scouting reports, student resources, search engines, WWW genetic library, medlinePlus, dictionaries & directories, biomolecules image viewer, bioinformatics of model organisms, and the main servers for each organism;

Channel 3 (foot frame): Highlights biomolecules & biotechnology research and acknowledges the sites of great value to the science community (WebStars);

Channel 2 (main frame): Showcases notable recent abstracts in biomedicine in the context of the powerful PubMed interface of National Library of Medicine.  This expands the functionality of elegansNet workbench by allowing easy literature searches on demand, and by providing continuous access to NCBI databases and services;

Channel 1 (index frame): Provides comprehensive index for navigation to databases of genome, proteome, ehanceosome, transcriptome, RNA worlds, physiome, biomes, and other informatics. Databases are accessible in several ways (alphabetical, those offering integration and tools, functional, by model organisms, and by what reagents/information you have at your disposal and what you want to do).  Model organisms included are: Nematodes, Fly, Mouse, Puffer Fish, Rat, Xenopus, Yeast, Zebrafish, etc.  The research menu is rich in links to student resources (introduction to bioinformatics and model organisms, hyper textbooks, manuals, tutorials, etc.), medicine/health (diseases, references, research resources, specialties, vendors, etc.), alliances (cellular signaling), centers for research resources, material & protocols, microarrays, literature search, and other engines, announcements, news/media, reference shelf (Atlas & Encyclopedia, Converters & Tables, Dictionaries, Directories/Guides/Indices, Glossaries, Manuals, Institutes/laboratories/ organizations/associations, Societies, etc.), career, funding, publishing, phone books, etc.  Research areas indexed include: aging & oxidative-stress, biocomputing & robotics, development, cell cycle & cell death, DNA-Binding proteins, DNA replication, neurosciences, signal transduction, and transcription. 

What are the goals of elegansNet?
As a non-profit site, the  goal of C. elegansNet is to simplify navigation to WWW resources by the beginners/experts, to enhance interaction among researchers, and to promote science appreciation for the public.   

 

Where does elegansNet originate from?

Operating since 1/7/2000, elegansNet is produced in the Department of Pediatrics at Vanderbilt University and is published to:

http://peds.mc.vanderbilt.edu/c_elegans/index.htm, 

http://www.geocities.com/elegansnet/index.htm, and 

http://sites.netscape.net/elegansnet/ more frequently than to its sister sites below:

http://home.talkcity.com/PicassoPl/celegansnet/

 

What do you need to optimally view and use elegansNet?

elegansNet has been optimized on a 350 MHZ windows NT workstation.  It is  viewed best when occupying most of a 17" screen,  running on computers with greater than 120 MHZ with no disk caching, and using Internet Explorer 5.0 or  later;  it is less compatible with other browsers. 

 

Information delivery by elegansNet 

elegansNet delivers information via four channels: 

Channel 1 (Left frame):  Index - Click on the main index menu items to be transported to submenu items.  This transport is fast because submenu options have already been downloaded to clients' computer.

Quick Navigation of the Index Channel: 

Click on the main index menu items to be transported to submenu items.  This transport is fast because submenu options have already been downloaded to clients' computer. The following quick keys simplify navigation within the the index:

  • Back button of your browser or keyboard 

  • 'Home' & end' on your keyboard

  • 'alt + left arrow' or 'alt + right arrow' keys on your keyboard

  • Click any of the radio buttons distributed throughout the index

  • Press 'Ctrl + F' keys on your keyboard, and type key words into popup window to search the elegansNet index.
