Description: BioEd Online is an “educational resource for educators, students, and parents” from the Baylor College of Medicine. This is an excellent place to find educational materials and current information in the field of biology. The “Hot Topics” section of this site focus on current events and issues in biology that are “receiving national attention.” Outbreaks of viruses have had detrimental effects on human populations throughout history. Recently, there has been a spotlight on the avian influenza virus (specifically the strain known as H5N1), which has infected over 100 people throughout the world. Concerned scientists and health officials are researching this virus, which many fear could escalate and contribute to a worldwide influenza outbreak. This site, created by Deanne Erdmann, MS, and Nancy Moreno, PhD, contains a brief discussion of the avian influenza virus, and includes links to references and further reading. Related news articles, and websites can be found. Be sure to check out the related slide set, “Bird Flu: Is a Pandemic Looming in Our Future?" The slide show can be easily manipulated for use in the classroom along with the other resources provided in this “Hot Topic” from BioEd Online.
