Boston, Massachusetts  --  College publishing company Nature Education announced the launch of a new online educational site for undergraduate biology students and educators.

The free site, called Scitable, is currently focused on genetics and combines authoritative scientific information with additional social media functionality.

“Research supports the fact that while science students are still using textbooks and library resources for their science classes, they are now depending increasingly on the Internet. However, reliability of information is a concern,” says Vikram Savkar, publishing director of Nature Education. “Our goal is to provide an authoritative and compelling science resource on the Internet for students and faculty anywhere in the world.”
