This is website is hosted by the Department of Energy (DOE) and contains a suite of Web links that provide information about the Human Genome Project, DOE-supported genome research, medicine, education, and the ethical, legal, and social issues (ELSI) programs of DOE and the National Institutes of Health.


This is the home page for the National Human Genome Research Institute, which is part of the National Institutes of Health. The site provides information about the Human Genome Project, genomics research, and their ELSI program. Links to other genome sites are included.


This is the home page for the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI). The NCBI is a national resource for molecular biology information. It creates and manages public databases (including GenBank), conducts research in computational biology, and develops software for analyzing genome data.


GenomeWeb is an independent provider of news and information about the business and technology of genomics and bioinformatics.


Wellcome News Online is the electronic version of the print magazine published by the Wellcome Trust. The Wellcome Trust supports genomics research in the United Kingdom.


This site belongs to the journal Science. It serves as an entry to the world of genomics. Some of the site links require a free registration or a paid subscription.


The Institute for Genomic Research (TIGR) is a not-for-profit research institute with interests in comparative genomics. TIGR scientists have determined the complete sequences of over 20 microbial genomes.

Genetic Disease Web Sites


GeneTests is a publicly-funded medical genetics information resource aimed at healthcare providers and researchers. It requires a free registration to use.
