Bi 1: The Great Ideas of Biology @ Caltech
This is the public repository corresponding to the website for Bi 1, the introductory undergraduate biology course at Caltech.
The website is based off of that from the 2017 edition of the class. Visiting
bi1.caltech.edu will automatically redirect you to the most recent version (which is 2023 as of this writing). You can also append the appropriate year to view archived versions, e.g.
bi1.caltech.edu/2017 will take you to the 2017 website.
This versioning is accomplished by placing each year's content (like
assets) in separate directories, and performing the redirect in the
index.html file. Some special files and folders, such as
_layouts, can only be placed in the root directory -- so we do a similar kind of versioning within them.
Future iterations of the course should use a similar strategy to preserve previous version of the website in-place.
