 Based on the information given to USC second year medical students

 Contains over seventy sections, each of which corresponds to a
lecture in the medical student course.
 Although the text is based on lecture notes, it has been enhanced by
addition of numerous illustrations consisting of original figures,
micrographs and disease symptoms.

 Many of the micrographs and illustrations of disease come from public
domain databases around the world plus private sites from which
copyright clearance has been obtained – making the site an archive of
microbiology teaching images
 Each section is linked to sites on the Internet

 Sections are also linked to sub-pages on our site in the form of pop-
up information boxes

 Terms with which the reader may not be familiar are linked to an on-
line medical dictionary

 Recently, the National Library of Medicine has put several genetics
and cell biology books on the web - the appropriate sections of those
books are being linked to the text in our book to give the reader further
Also included:
     Animations using Macromedia Flash
     Animations using Microsoft PowerPoint

    Molecular modeling files of proteins
       These use the Chime browser plug-in which is based on the
       RasMol program.
 Each of the 70 sections is in HTML format – click on chapter number
   Most sections of the book are accompanied by:
        PowerPoint slide files, mostly of use to faculty in other institutions
        Acrobat portable document files (pdf) as lecture notes
