Free online resource for educators and students

Nature Publishing Group (NPG) launched a free online science education resource for university faculty and students called Scitable. It is a free online resource for undergraduate educators and students. It’s built on a foundation of evidence-based, faculty-reviewed scientific overviews of key concepts compiled by the editorial staff of NPG. The first Scitable module is devoted to the study of genetics. Content is linked to cutting edge research published by other NPG publications, giving undergraduate students access to real-world scientific inquiry and experimentation.
