The National Center for Genome Resources (NCGR) of Santa Fe, New Mexico, publishes a wide array of resources in its Genetics and Public Issues site on the Internet (http://www.ncgr.org/). The site includes information on such inherited illnesses as breast cancer and Alzheimer's disease; full-text documents including congressional bills relating to genetics and privacy; and articles about genetics and medical care, confidentiality and privacy, discrimination, support groups, treatments, and gene therapy. NCGR's Genetics and Public Issues program was created in response to the need for information about medical and social implications of genetic research.
