Exploring the world of the human genome project can be quite an undertaking for students new to the subject. Fortunately, the U.S Human Genome Project website contains a veritable cornucopia of accessible and age-appropriate educational materials for use in the classroom. First-time visitors may wish to start on the left-hand side of the page, which includes a FAQ area, a glossary, and a basic overview of genetics, appropriately titled "Genetics 101". After that, visitors may wish to look through the primary resources, which are organized into sections that include "Posters", "Presentations", "Online Educational Modules", and "Downloadable Teaching Aids". There are over several hundred resources contained within the site, and visitors can also make use of the search engine embedded on the homepage to look for specific resources.
