As an example of how technology enables a powerful approach to science teaching,
this URL links directly to some of the most respected research on myosins. The
organization of knowledge displayed here about myosins is clearly outlined in a
way that is superior to any published textbook. Such a resource suggests to me
that the role of textbooks must change as we come to rely more on Web pages for
the status of current knowledge in Biology.

Technical Remarks:

The gif animation showing movement of myosin along the actin filament takes a
few minutes to download using a slow modem - but then the animation takes off
and keeps going! One question remains: Does this animation represent myosin
motion in general, or does it, perhaps, display an artifact from the conditions
used to create these images. Such a question should motivate future students to
enter the fascinating field of myosin research!!!
