A Hypermedia Glossary of Genetic Terms

Created and maintained by Dr. Birgid Schlindwein of the Weihenstephan Information and Documentation Centre (IDW), this thoroughly hyperlinked glossary offers brief definitions for (currently) over 580 genetic terms. Users may browse the glossary alphabetically or search by keyword. Entries include a basic definition for the selected term as well as a list of related terms with their definitions. Despite a somewhat clunky layout (all definitions are placed in yellow boxes and every entry page is preceded by a lengthy disclaimer), this site will find ready use in advanced secondary and university biology courses.

I'm always looking for news about genetics, so this glossary will help in understanding those news. It's interesting how much we don't know about genetics, I recently read an article about ADHD, and it said that it might be caused by a genetic mutation: ADHD caused by a genetic mutation
