Northwestern University researchers have developed a Web site [url no longer available] to teach health professionals and the public about the genetic basis of cancer and new discoveries in the field of cancer genetics. Designed as a comprehensive educational program, the site provides a fundamental understanding of genetics, genetic testing and diagnosis, genetic counseling, and cancer risk assessment.
The Human Genome Education Model Project (HuGEM) offers education in the new genetics to specific groups of health professionals who provide services for individuals and families with genetic conditions.
Devoted to the union between genomics and mutation research, the fourth issue of Mutation Research Genomics Online a section of Mutation Research Onlineis available online. Although full online access is restricted to subscribers, informative snapshots are available for selected articles in each issue.
