This database is a bit involved, but it is definitely worth while for those who have a good understanding of genetics, and biology in general.

As a teacher I think this site would be very useful for directing students where to find peer reviewed research. It could be also be helpful when assigning a research paper, students always need sources.

Extensive database! This is a very technical resource, probably most appropriate for the professional level, but can be used for educational purposes in order to prepare students for biotech research.  Also, the acronym is NCBI, not the name of a television show. :)
