Cells Alive!
http://www.cellsalive.com/

B+ CONTENT:
The page keeps true to its name by only discussing cells and their anatomy, function and diversity.

A AESTHETICS:
The layout of the site is very easy to follow and the Home Page contains animated pictures which get your attention. The black background is a little hard to watch for a long time.

A+ ORGANIZATION:
The Home Page is uncluttered and it is very easy to move from link to link.

A REVIEW:
For such a potentially limiting topic, this site has a lot of information on the nature of cells and microorganism-based diseases. Some areas are of a basic interest but most of the text is for a slightly higher-than-general science audience. Some of the topics are directed to everyday life such as "anatomy of a splinter" and "making antibodies". Some of the terminology is straight textbook science but most of the words are commonly used scientific terms. You will definitely learn something from here.
