Reading books online

in web tools

When I was preparing my last seminar I realized how helpful it could be when you have an open book in front of you and can cite it.

Google Books – what an incredible tool! This web application allows us to read books online for free. Maybe not all of books you want to read but most of them – Limited previews but sometimes 50% of content.

One of the best explanations online for “competitive repopulation assay” or just “competitive repopulation” was from Google Books. Some of the results from my search are below:

Hematopoietic Stem Cell Protocols By Christopher A. Klug, Craig T. Jordan, p. 173:

Renaissance of Sickle Cell Disease Research in the Genome Era By Betty Pace, p. 264:

Gene Therapy Protocols By Paul D. Robbins, p. 234:

Hematopoietic Stem Cells: Biology and Therapeutic Applications By Daniel Levitt, Roland Mertelsmann, p. 87:


try to play with it! It’s easy to use and a very convenient tool for study.

You can also create your own online library, rank books, add notes, write reviews, export from or import to your library and share your RSS feeds with friends and colleagues.
