Nature Publishing Group has launched Scitable, a personal learning tool and library, which initially is focussing on genetics, the study of evolution, variation, and the rich complexity of living organisms.
The site is aimed at both students and academics with free registration. For students there are series of learning paths which cover topics such as cancer, genetic testing and chromosomes and disease. Students can also experts questions, access a library of articles on various topics and connect with other students to form study groups or take part in discussions. Teaching staff can use Scitable to build a free research space for their students and provide students with daily RSS news feeds from Nature.com, Science Blogs and Scientific American.
