    Take a look at this website, it has some really neat Clips, Stills, and Slides of small life forms:

    http://www.cytographics.com/


    Especially nice is the video of Xenopus (toad) eggs. The video illustrate, how perfectly times embyonic development is, since three three eggs were fertilized at the same time and develop at the same speed.

    It is cool, since it is a time lapse videa which shows the process from first cell division all the way of the hatching of the tadpole. Too bad the resolution is not so nice, I've got in on a CDROM which is 100x better.

    Oh, how wonderful!

    I especially liked the "Early Phases of Mitosis", and it's even in quicktime format (which I much prefer).

    Very nice sites.

    I really enjoyed this site... I thought the Noctiluca Scintillans was kinda cutesy, with its ability to catch prey with its flagella... I don't know when I see things like this I want to reconsider being a biology major...

    I just found two cool websites:

    Animated Tutorials
    This site is actually of the company which is contracted to make the tutorials, but it seems you can access all of the tutorials that they make. They have many biology ones as well as physics, astronomy etc.

    Stem Cell Information
    This is the NIH's Stem Cell information website. If you have ever wanted to know anything about stem cells, i think this is a good place to start.

    A book on consciousness and the brain....?
    I dunno if this will help, but it has a chapter listing, and one of them might be related to what you want. Often if you can just find one site which is related to what you want, check out the links from that site, and you 'surf'[b(] your way to the site you want.

    New evolution 101 site. Should be good - - it's by the National Center for Science Education (heavily engaged in the creation-evolution debate).

    http://evolution.berkeley.edu

    And of course, there is the always famous...

    Looking for immunology animations

    I'm looking for a site with immunology animations that would be appropriate for students that are either non biology majors or have a very basic understanding of biology. I've looked at a few sites you guys have listed (some very cool sites) but haven't found one that gives a good general overview of the immune response cascade. If you know of good site please let me know!
    Thanks
