Human Genome Project Information Website Expands
Adds News Headlines, ELSI and Medical Suites
To address the evolving needs of a public facing unfamiliar genomic issues and challenges, HGMIS has redesigned the Human Genome Project Information Web site. Nearly a dozen pages have been added, and the site has been rearranged into suites.
Pharmacogenomics, Gene Therapy, and Genetic Counseling pages are new in the Medicine and the New Genetics suite, and the Gene Testing and Home pages have been revised.
The Ethical, Legal, and Social Issues suite now incorporates pages on Privacy and Legislation, Patenting, Forensics, Behavioral Genetics, and Genetics in the Courtroom, along with updated Home and ELSI Research Information pages. Audio/Video Online Webcasts has been revamped as part of the Educational Resources suite.
The News Sources suite combines the traditional Whats New with a weekly research digest and new pages of Genome Headlines and Genetics News Sources. In addition to up-to-date background text on HGP history and science, the Media Guide includes graphics that would be valuable to any interested persons as well as to those preparing news articles. An alphabetical index complements the sites existing subject-style index and search engine.
