2 online science video pioneers combine to form new iBiology.org
Date:10/22/2013

SAN FRANCISCO, CAOctober 21, 2013Two pioneering online biology video sites, iBioSeminars and iBioMagazine, have merged to create iBiology.org, a new website with even more to offer the biology community. Following the model of its predecessors, iBiology.org will continue to provide videos by world-class biologists for free.

The new site aims to appeal to a broad audience, says iBiology Director Sarah Goodwin PhD, including the scientists, graduate students, and biology majors who avidly follow the research talks on iBioSeminars, as well as the viewers who enjoy the short discovery talks and scientist profiles on iBioMagazine. The newly merged site will also offer an exciting new stream of content in an "iBioEducation" section. iBioEducation features two microscopy courses, a completely new lecture series, including a talk by the 2013 Nobel Prize winner in Medicine, Randy Schekman, and short video clips excerpted from our seminar series. There are also numerous assessments and educator resources, which are free to registered educators.

iBiology was created to take modern biology anywhere in the world where there is a computer or smart phone in the hands of someone curious about the science of life. The iBiology collection currently features over 300 seminars and short talks, spanning 11 different areas of biology. To date, the iBioSeminars and iBioMagazine sites have had 1.4 million views, with an audience spread throughout 180 countries, and over 15,000 people subscribe to the iBiology newsletter, YouTube channel or follow on social media. Clearly many people are still curious about biology!

iBiology.org is based at UCSF with administrative support from the American Society for Cell Biology. The project is funded by the National Science Foundation, the National Institutes of General Medical Sciences of the NIH, and the Howard Hughes Medical Institute.
