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

elegansNet is webcasted from the following sites:,, and more frequently than to its sister sites below:


elegansNet is viewed best with Internet Explorer 5.0 (small to medium font) or  later, is less compatible with other browsers.

Channel 1 (Left frame):  Index - The content is continuously evolving. 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.

 Channel 2 (Main frame):  Notable recent abstracts are showcased 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 3 (Footnote frame):  The content which typically changes monthly highlights biomedical research technology, and introduces the elegansNet WebStars

Channel 4 (Header frame): The content is continuously evolving. The objective is to provide quick access to most frequently used sites for news, searches, dictionaries, and  bioinformatics databases & tools for many organisms.  A partial list includes: 

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.

Search engines & elegansNet
