BioEd Online is an “educational resource for educators, students, and parents” from the Baylor College of Medicine. This is an excellent place to find educational materials and current information in the field of biology. The “Hot Topics” section of this site focus on current events and issues in biology that are “receiving national attention.” This site, created by Mary Pat Bolton, MA, RD, LD, contains a brief discussion of Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), commonly known as a "staph" infection. The article includes background information on the bacteria as well as information about how people become infected with MRSA, how it is treated, and how it can be prevented. In addition, the site includes links to references and further reading. Be sure to check out the related slide set, “Understanding Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus." The slide show can be easily manipulated for use in the classroom along with the other resources provided in this “Hot Topic” from BioEd Online.
