Educational Tools: 
bulletPrinciples of Protein Structure from Birkbeck College - This is a real college course taught via the Internet. The course uses a wide range of interactive and multimedia techniques to bring high-quality, low-cost learning to students who wish to understand how the three-dimensional structures of proteins are critical to their function. The course is intended for scientists who need to know more about how and why protein structure is central to modern biology.
