A list, no; sorry.  But we recently acquired the BioQuest package and 
I am quite impressed with it; I am using it in a class this summer, so 
if anyone wants to know how it went I will put together a report and 
post it.  They have an extensive web site at 
<http://www.beloit.edu/~bquest/> .

The neatest thing is that instead of neatly predigested ideas, the 
modules are mostly "virtual labs" where the students must pose 
questions and design experiments, carry them out, and interpret the 
results; an additional emphasis is placed on conveying this information
to others (a very real part of science, as we all know).
