USING THIS WEBSITE

The Main Page

From the main page, the contents of the website can be accessed either by chapter, or by topic.

To access contents by chapter, choose a chapter from the chapter menu. You will be taken to a page listing all the topics for that chapter. Click a topic title to go to that topic. You will then be taken to a page listing the articles for that topic (or, if there is only one article for that topic, you will go directly to that article). Click the title of an article to go to view it. Or, click the "Expand Topics" link to expand the list to show all the articles within each topic. Then click an article title to open it.

To access a specific topic directly from the main page, enter a topic number in the "Topic Number" field, and click "GO."

To see a list of all topics in all chapters, choose "Contents for all chapters" from the chapter menu. Click "Expand Chapters" to see a list with all topics, and click "Expand Topics" to see a list with all articles.

The "Bioethics" button on the homepage will take you to a page that lists all the bioethics articles.

The "Humor" button on the homepage will take you to a page of developmental biology humor, including song lyrics, abstracts from papers, and even a play.

Use the search tool (at the top of the page) to search the website for a particular topic or term. Enter text in the field, and click the "GO" button. Or, click the word "SEARCH" to go to the search page, which has more detailed instructions and search options. Once you perform a search, you will be taken to the search results page, which lists all articles that contain the search terms. Click an article to open it, and scroll down through the text of the article—the search terms will be highlighted.

The Article Page

Once within an article page, scroll down to read the text. To open an image (figure, table, or photo) in its own window, click on the image. (This can be useful for printing individual images, and some images open at a larger size, which can make it easier to read small type in the image.)

At the top of every article page are links to Search, Topic Number, Bioethics, Help, and the chapter menu. At any time, you can click one of these links, or choose a new chapter from the chapter menu to move to a different part of the website.

The "breadcrumb" line at the top of the article text keeps track of where you are in the site, and is an easy way to get back to a chapter list or the main page. The breadcrumb line looks like this:

HOME :: CHAPTER 2 :: 2.1 DOES THE GENOME OR THE CYTOPLASM DIRECT DEVELOPMENT? :: BOVERI'S 1902 PAPER

Click the topic title, chapter title, or "Home" link to move back up the hierarchy.
