http://gslc.genetics.utah.edu (genetics) Try the online interactive activities such as build a DNA molecule. Well worth a look  The You Try It site has a section about DNA with an interactive nucleotide matching activity for both replication and transcription.  Graphics take some time to load. Some good interactive stuff such as complementary base pairing practice.  Evolution.  Wonderful site about human evolution. Shame it is not really in our syllabus.  Boxmind e-lectures. A paysite. A free lecture by Prof Dawkins.
The Biology Project provides problems for mono, dihybrid and sex-linked crosses. Best I could find now that fly lab has become a paysite.

Biology online is an electronic textbook at Higher standard. Links to many other biology sites.

Huge site for DNA and genetics and health (see PKU) from Cold Spring Harbor Lab.

Access excellence is a big site. Just a wee part of it does DNA & genetics (but can you trust a site that states that Mendels’ wrinkled peas had sperm)

Advanced Higher

Excellent interactive sites for the cell cycle. Links to articles about each stage. Definitely worth a look.

Virtual Biochemistry laboratory. Takes a long time to load. Also interactive tutorials on DNA & protein synthesis.

The Schoolscience site has a number of references appropriate to A Higher

BBC site with articles giving pros and cons of GM foods.

Lots of articles on GM foods and the Human Genome Project

A site that explains the cause and effects of global warming. Includes a quiz.
