About Biology Online

Biology Online aims to educate and promote awareness of all things biology, offering free and easy access to information in the biological sciences.

Created in 2001, the site provides a wealth of information in the diverse field of biology offering a forum for discussion, an editable-dictionary with thousands of terms, links to external resources, tutorials, articles and a biology book catalogue with user reviews.

The site is often recognized for its simplicity, in both its design and the way in which it delivers content, helping users to find information easily, quickly and as a result more effectively.

Over the long term, the site aims to promote the subject and sites with similar goals (be it in education or science). The site is sustained and able to evolve as a result of the contributions to the content. To share your theories and concepts, you can upload your work via the Share your Work button. Content on the site is usually added and checked by members of our team, however if you do notice any incorrect information or mistakes please contact a team member straight away. As members of the biology community, we hope you will help us to verify the information presented on the site for accuracy and integrity.

Maria Victoria (Vicki) Mozo, formerly a Biology teacher and researcher, has devoted her time in enriching Biology Online. She takes pride of her enormous enthusiasm for the website from the moment she learned how to flick the mouse and bash the keyboard. One of her timeless goals is to make others see biology not as a geeky science but a way to appreciate life.

I am currently a microbiologist and researcher in Canada and study horizontal genetic transfer in bacteria. "I am the evil and snarky moderator with little patience for stupidity, laziness and spamming. But I enjoy helping those who are actually trying to understand and discussing when the arguments are actually thought out."

Abandon hope all ye who enter... I have thrown away sanity, chance of employment and even romance for some of the harshest and most unforgiving mistresses : academia and science. May Darwin have mercy on my soul.

Chemist by a body and soul, student of biochemistry, not that desperate as other mods (yet, although it's coming with seven-miles boots:-D) , spammer (and ecoterorists:) hunter. Real name: Tomas, the nickname is from the plant Jackbean, from which originates Concanavalin A used in affinity chromatography for sugar and glycoprotein purification.

My name is Andrei Anghel and I am from Romania. I have had a passion for biology ever since I can remember, and consider it part of my person now. I have two silver medals at the International Biology Olympiad (in 2006 and 2007). I intend to pursue a career in biochemistry or cellular biology, but try to remain up-to-date on every subject in the area of biology. I enjoy discovering new things myself as well helping others discover new things. In fact, these are the two main reasons why I joined the Biology-online.org project. I truly believe the proverb "Mens sana in corpore sano" and do as much physical exercise as I can.

My name is Özge. I live in Turkey. I'm studying biology at the university and love it. I'm planning to do MSc and PhD after graduation. Althought I'm not very good at botany and zoology, I love most of the subjects of biology.

I have a BS in biology from the University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth. I am applying for graduate school now to start in the fall, to pursue a PhD. I'm hoping to do some research in molecular immunology, but I'm open to other stuff too - like signal transduction. My main reason for wanting my PhD though is to teach at the college level. I'm an avid outdoors man and do a good deal of hunting and fishing throughout the year as well as geocaching, mountain biking, and backpacking. The only musical instrument that I can play with anything resembling skill is bagpipes.
