Both students and general users will appreciate this glossary, which is designed to help people with non-scientific backgrounds "to better understand the terms and concepts behind genetic research." Provided by NHGRI, which oversees the National Institutes of Health's role in the Human Genome Project (see the March 26, 1999 Scout Report
), the glossary offers phonetic spelling, a brief definition, a detailed explanation from a scientist in RealAudio format, related terms, and in some cases an illustration, for almost 150 genetic terms. Users may search the glossary by keyword or phrase or browse alphabetically.
