“The National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI), part of the National Institutes of Health,  launched the next generation of its online Talking Glossary of Genetic Terms. The glossary contains several new features, including more than 100 colorful illustrations and more than two dozen 3-D animations that allow the user to dive in and see genetic concepts in action at the cellular level.  The updated glossary, announced at the 2009 annual meeting of the American Society of Human Genetics (ASHG), gives students, teachers and the public a reliable online resource for more than 200 terms and basic concepts behind today’s breakthroughs in genetics and genomics. The glossary is available at http://www.genome.gov/glossary [Read the complete NIH News Release online http://www.nih.gov/news/health/oct2009/nhgri-20.htm]”
