View Resource Silencing Genomes

While we may have complete genome sequences for humans and some animals, scientists are now entering the "post genome" era. The challenges of this era include determining the physiological functions of the thousands of new genes "for which little is known beyond their sequences." The use of RNAi, along with bioinformatics, can provide scientists with the tools to determine these functions in...
View Resource Arts & Genomics

Based at the University of Leiden in the Netherlands, The Arts & Genomics Centre is interested in expanding the "public debate on (future) goals, means, possibilities and use of results of genomics, from the specific point of view of bio-genetic art." The homepage provides ample information about their most recent initiatives, which have included a symposium on food, art and science and a video on...
View Resource CDC: Public Health Genomics

Created in 1997, the Office of Public Health Genomics (OPHG) was established "to integrate genomics into public health research, policy, and programs, which could improve interventions designed to prevent and control the country's leading chronic, infectious, environmental, and occupational diseases." Visitors to the site should start by looking over their "Focus Areas", which include "Genomics...
View Resource Genomics in Education

Created by Professor Sarah C.R. Elgin at Washington University, the Genome Sequencing Video Tour is "aimed at increasing the scientific literacy of biology students in the technology of genomic sequence." Here, visitors can watch the entire tour, which include segments featuring an exploration of current genomic research in a pathogenic bacteria and an animated explanation of the chemistry of...
View Resource Genomics in Education

How do you get young people interested in the world of genomics? Well, for a start, you can take them on this interactive tour of the Genome Sequencing Center at Washington University. Created by a team of researchers at the Center, this site offers twelve different video clips, several supplemental videos, and a host of student activities. Visitors can get started by viewing the five different...
