Useful links and databases for research in Biology & interdisciplinary course work.


The databases on this page are some of the top resources for biology research. They've been organized into a few of the major fields of research at Loyola. Some databases will appear more than once, because their content covers multiple areas of biological research. A comprehensive list of Loyola's Biology database subscriptions can be viewed here.
