BIOL 130: Cell Biology & Genetics: Articles

How To Find Articles

Use the databases listed on this page to find articles.

If an article isn't available in full-text, click the "Find It!" button.  We might have e-access another way or have it in print.  Find it at Willamette

If we don't have it, order the article through Interlibrary Loan (ILL).

If you're off-campus, you will be prompted for your Willamette username & password.

Biosis Previews

Biosis Previews is a great beginning database for any biology-related topic because it is a general biology database!  It is perfect for finding articles ranging from aquatic microorganisms to large forestry ecologies and crops to human biology.

PubMed (ISI)

PubMed (aka Medline) provides access to over 12 million citations in life science journals. It links to some full-text articles and related resources, but mostly provides citation information.  It also features a way to search for medical journal titles by abbreviation (journals titles are abbreviated in CSE format).
