Biochemistry and Molecular Biophysics

This guide is designed to help students learn how to use K-State Libraries' many resources for studying and learning biochemistry and molecular biophysics.

Library Research Guide

What is a database?

Library databases are collections of descriptions of research resources such as articles, books, dissertations, and reports. Some databases focus on a specific discipline; others are multi-disciplinary.

JoVE - Journal of Visualized Experiments

JoVE is a unique resource with several different collections of video content. K-State subscribes to several collections.

Select research in the navigation menu. K-State subscribes to Bioengineering, biology, immunology and infection, medicine, and immunologyWe also subscribe to subjects in JoVE Video Core Collection (under Research on the navigation menu) where you'll find videos of scientists performing experiments in detail that will allow viewers to replicate the experiment.

The search box at the top of any of these links will get results from all subject areas. Note: we do not have access to videos in other areas but they will appear in your search.

Databases for Biochemists

For more databases, see our Databases A-Z list.

Scopus and Web of Science are good starting points for finding articles on almost any topic. They do not contain full text articles but you can get access to full text by using the Get It button. With both you can easily see how frequently and where an article is cited. If you find an article you like, look for its keywords, references, and see where it has been cited.

PubMed is a free service of the National Library of Medicine that includes over 21 million citations from Medline and other life science journals for biomedical articles back to the 1950s. PubMed includes links to full text articles.
