Zoological Record is the world's oldest continuing database of animal biology. It is considered the world's leading taxonomic reference, and with coverage back to 1864, has long acted as the world's unofficial register of animal names. The broad scope of coverage ranges from biodiversity and the environment to taxonomy and veterinary sciences.
SciFinder seamlessly links scientists to more micro, molecular, and cellular biology, biomedical, and biochemical content than any publicly available source and is the only single scientific source that provides extensive links to both patents and journal literature. more
SciFinder finds references to biomedical research using the CAplusSM and MEDLINE databases and allows you to search the largest depository of protein and nucleic acid sequences from biomedical patents and journals. This vast collection of scientific information allows you to easily explore a wide range of biological disciplines, such as:
Due to budget cuts, CSU’s Biological Abstracts subscription was discontinued on January 1, 2010. Access to Biological Abstracts Archive (1969-2009) will be maintained, but those seeking current, up-to-date indexing should use one of the aforementioned databases.
Use this tool to locate a specific journal, or to find an article if you have a complete citation.
The largest subscription-based electronic database of reproducible laboratory protocols in the Life and Biomedical Sciences, offering researchers access to nearly thirty years worth of time tested, easily reproducible, step-by-step protocols for immediate use in the lab.
Features more than 4,400 specially commissioned and peer-reviewed articles that are written by leaders in the field to provide comprehensive and authoritative coverage of this subject area. Outstanding starting point for an overview of organisms, processes, procedures, terminology, etc.
