Students need access to engaging, relevant resources about genetics that help them understand aspects of this complex topic. Science educators need high quality, free resources to help teach everything from the basics of genetics to the social issues surrounding genetics. This presentation will explore resources starting with genes and chromosomes to genetic disorders, genetic testing, genetic counseling, and the Human Genome Project. We will briefly discuss ethical and legal issues associated with genetic disorders with regard to privacy, discrimination, and potential legislative impact on medicine and society. A variety of reliable health information resources will be demonstrated, including Genetics Home Reference and GeneEd – the site for Genetics, Education and Discovery. If you teach genetics or are simply interested in learning more about the great free resources from the National Library of Medicine, don’t miss this session!
