The National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) at the National Institute of Health (NIH) was established in 1989 for the express purpose of contributing to the International Human Genome Project - the multi-nation, decade-long project that successfully mapped the human genome. With such a rich pedigree it is no surprise that the NHGRI boasts a wonderfully informative website. Take, for instance, the Fact Sheets on Science, Research, Ethics and the Institute, featured here. Readers will find well over a dozen fact sheets, covering topics such as Comparative Genomics, Cloning, DNA Sequencing, and Genetic Mapping. For readers who are looking for clearly written, compendious treatments of all things related to genetics research, the NHGRI site will not disappoint.
