A guide to library resources and research in biology and the life sciences.
JoVE (Journal of Visualized Experiments) is a science video resource that includes a variety of resources for use in the classroom and in the lab. It has two components:
Science Education Video Collection: Teaching-focused videos including concept animations, ‘scientist in action’ videos to see concepts applied, and lab manual videos that cover preparation procedures for common labs
Video Journal: A peer-reviewed video methods journal, consisting of video demonstrations and detailed text protocols of new and standard methods in physical and life sciences. Students and researchers can see the details of experiments and concepts, in addition to text-based descriptions.
Below are a few links to components of JoVE relevant for Biology:
Includes modules on General Laboratory Techniques, Basic Methods in Cellular and Molecular Biology, Biology I (featuring yeast, Drosophila, and C. elegans), Biology II (featuring Mouse, Zebrafish, and Chick), Lab Animal Research, and Lab Safety.
JoVE Core series contains 300 concise and easy-to-understand animated video lessons that explain key concepts in biology, plus more than 150 scientist-in-action videos that show actual research experiments conducted in today’s laboratories. Available in 5 languages: English, Chinese, German, Spanish, and Italian.
