NHGRI Launches Improved Online Talking Glossary of Genetic Terms – 2
Narrator: This is NIH Health Matters. The National Human Genome Research Institute has launched the next generation of its online Talking Glossary of Genetic Terms. It provides students, teachers and the public a reliable resource for more than 200 words and basic concepts behind today's breakthroughs in genetics and genomics. Jeff Witherly at NHGRI says each term has a written definition, that a layperson can understand, plus an audio explanation by NIH experts.
Witherly: They say some of the most wonderful things about these terms, with the passion that they have for the field, and the general understanding that somebody out there needs this.
Narrator: The Talking Glossary of Genetic Terms is online at www.genome.gov/glossary. Health Matters is produced by the National Institutes of Health, part of the US Department of Health and Human Services.
