Human genetics and H Guide - Resources and Review

Presents early scientific attempts at cloning and describes breakthroughs since 1996, mainly focusing on Dolly the sheep. Some practical medical, agricultural, and industrial uses of the procedure are discussed, and ethical concerns of cloning humans, such as the possibility of abnormal development, psychological impact on offspring, and the effects on family life and parenting, are outlined.
The Center maintains the Genome Sequence Database (GSDB). It is one of four international centres providing central organisation and analysis of genetic information from researchers worldwide, including the Human Genome Project, the effort to map and sequence the complete human genetic structure. Also includes information on the ethics of human genetics.
A catalog of human genes and genetic disorders containing textual information, pictures, and reference information.
A monthly international journal covering all aspects of human and medical genetics, including gene cloning, linkage, complex diseases and mutagenesis, developmental and evolutionary genetics, genetic aspects of tumorigenesis, gene therapy, human behavioural genetics, modifier genes and other genes affecting genotype/phenotype relationships.
Map giving the locations of more than 30,000 genes which can be used to identify and isolate those that directly cause human ailments or increase susceptibility to disease. Produced by the Human Genome Project which aims to develop a complete and accurate DNA sequence representing the genetic blueprint and evolutionary history of the human species.
Set of links to selected, evaluated and annotated Internet resources relevant to genetics.
Topics explored by AJHG include behavioural genetics, biochemical genetics, clinical genetics, cytogenetics, dysmorphology, genetic counselling, immunogenetics, and population genetics and epidemiology. Tables of contents available.
Provides access to the Genbank sequence databases, a gene map of the human genome, UniGene (Unique Human Gene Sequence Collection) and OMIM (Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man).
An electronic archive for papers in any area of psychology, neuroscience, linguistics, and many areas of computer science (artificial intelligence, robotics, vision, learning, speech, neural networks), philosophy (mind, language, knowledge, science, logic), biology (ethology, behavioural ecology, sociobiology, behaviour genetics, evolutionary theory), medicine (psychiatry, neurology, human genetics, imaging), anthropology (primatology, cognitive ethnology, archaeology, palaeontology), as well as any other portions of the physical, social, and mathematical sciences that are pertinent to the study of cognition.
RC exists to provide specialist resources and services for scientists working on the Human Genome Project, including provision of biological materials (for which feedback on results is required), an online computing service giving access to genome databases and analysis tools and training courses.
An international research program designed to construct detailed genetic and physical maps of the human genome. Provides background information on the project, specific sequences for each human chromosome, and genome maps of other organisms.
Task group on public perceptions of biotechnology, with the aim of fostering greater public awareness and understanding of biotechnology and encouraging public debate. Includes the full text of reports such as Patenting in Biotechnology, Applications of Human Genetic Research, and Environmental Biotechnology.
MITOMAP uses the mtDNA sequence as the unifying element for bringing together information on mitochondrial genome structure and function, pathogenic mutations and their clinical characteristics, population associated variation, and gene
gene interactions.
Set of links to journals relevant to genetics and biotechnology. Some have only subscription information online, others have tables of contents, abstracts or full text.
