The MBL can be searched by strain, age, sex, body, or brain weight, and the collection now consists of images from approximately 800 brains and numerical data from just over 8000 mice. The MBL also provides access to online tutorials, online movies (in QuickTime format), and a collection of links to other interesting Web resources.
Net frog http://frog.edschool.virginia.edu/

Each step in the process is first demonstrated with photographs, text and a QuickTime movie (the user can control the play by stopping, starting, and moving the film backwards and forwards). The demonstration is followed by a Let's practice section, in which the user follows an interactive exercise. The tutorial was originally developed at the Curry School of Education at the University of Virginia to help high school biology students learn about frog anatomy.
