New HGMIS Site: Translation of Genetics to Medicine
At the request of medical professionals eager for translation of genomics to medical practice, the Human Genome Project Information suite of Web sites has added a new page called "Medicine and the New Genetics". This site covers topics of specific interest to physicians, nurses, genetic counselors, and allied health professionals. It contains information and links about disease prevention, diagnosis, and intervention; genetic-disease databases and support groups; gene testing; gene therapy; pharmacogenomics; genetic counseling; ethical, legal, and social issues associated with genetics; continuing medical education courses in genetics; publications; multimedia; professional societies; and other resources.
Medical professionals are asked to review the site and send comments and suggestions to HGMIS.
