Descriptions: Genes to Cognition (G2C) Online examines thinking and disorders of thinking across six levels of analysis: Genes ~ Biochemicals ~ Cells ~ Brain ~ Cognition (Behavior) ~ Environment. This interactive resource focuses on cognitive disorders, cognitive processes, and research approaches. A dynamic map of a network of connected topics facilitates exploration of a library of more than 750 unique items. A linear Selected Items menu above each map can be used to tour selected content. Links to other sites, to video short lectures and to news items are included. This site also has a blog. Note: Adobe FlashPlayer required for full use.

Provider: Texas Department of Public Safety
Descriptions: This State of Texas site contains full-text documents and links to other helpful websites like weather alert sources. Advice to communities launching public awareness campaigns on hurricane preparedness is provided here, along with documents addressing issues like preparation for evacuation, securing one's home and property, facts about inland flooding, information on post-storm environmental hazards like asbestos, storm effects by wind strength, etc.

Provider: U.S. Government Printing Office
Descriptions: In Beta stage at this writing, FDsys is the new Government Printing Office (GPO) website, which will soon contain all the information from the old GPO site and will incorporate more up-to-date features, like the capability to search all content from a single search box. Presidential documents are posted here, often within days of their inception. This is the best location for finding Congressional bills, documents, hearings and reports, as well as the Congressional Record.

Provider: International DOI Foundation
Descriptions: DOI, or Digital Object Identifier, is a standardized system for providing actionable, persistent and interoperable links to "objects," the scope of which was originally limited to online documents, but which term is now applied in this context to online datasets, videos and other formats and types of information containers. Every resource relevant to DOI's is either present in or linked to from this website, for instance: FAQ's, a detailed handbook, fact sheets and white papers; links to DOI registration agencies like DataCite and CrossRef; and links to browser tools being developed to facilitate and expand the usefulness and applicability of the Digital Object Identifier.

Provider: National Institutes of Health
Descriptions: The Neuroscience Information Framework (NIF) is a semantically-enhanced portal to a dynamic inventory of Web-based neuroscience resources. An initiative of the NIH Blueprint for Neuroscience Research, NIF enhances discovery and access to often unindexed but publicly available research data, datasets, software and tools in the deep web, as well as linking to PubMed records and open-access literature. The NIF Project provides the NIF Registry, Antibody Registry, Drug Related Gene Database, neuroscience ontology and a way to contribute to it (via the NeuroLex wiki) and semantic tagging services. NIF Navigator, a customizable, stand-alone search tool for incorporation into websites or wikis, draws query results from all the NIF's own components and from other sites and accessible databases. The valuable resources at NIF are too numerous to be described adequately here.

Provider: Deep Web Technologies
Descriptions: The MEDNAR federated search engine brings the user high-quality medical information available via the Web. Results return as a relevance-ranked list, with filters that automatically cluster results into manageable and rational groupings under topic, author, publication, date range, etc. along the left side of the results page.

Provider: Alzheimer Research Forum
Descriptions: This site contains and links to a huge number of resources for the Alzheimer researcher. Features include: a live discussion forum; citations to the latest papers (linking to PubMed); an international listing of institutes and laboratories; separate links for news on drugs, conferences and research; clinics information for the consumer; and more items too numerous to list here. It also provides links to the AlzSWAN Knowledge Base (see separate website listing) and its tutorials, and a collection of special seminars, on-line journal club discussions, recorded talks and other presentations that describe a variety of scientific hypotheses about the pathogenesis of Alzheimer's disease.
