Teaching resources. An interactive course in nuclear receptor signaling: concepts and models

Sci STKE. 2005 Aug 30;2005(299):tr22. doi: 10.1126/stke.2992005tr22.


This interactive online course sketches some of the landmark studies and discoveries in the field of nuclear receptors since the field's inception. Although the course is primarily focused at advanced life sciences students and scientists from other disciplines wishing to become acquainted with the field, it is likely to also be a useful resource for anyone associated with the discipline of nuclear receptor signaling. This animated course was created by members of the Nuclear Receptor Signaling Atlas (NURSA; www.nursa.org), which is an NIH-funded research consortium formed with the aim of providing a repository of nuclear receptor-related data for use of the scientific community.
