I can always appreciate a website with a clever logo—such as the Genetic Alliance’s DNA strand in which people substitute for the base pairs. And when the rest of the site delivers, well, that just makes my day. Genetic Alliance is a nonprofit health advocacy group that provides resources about health in general, but with a specific emphasis on genetic disorders. The disease info search provides links to disease-specific resources, categorized into five groups: organizations, arts and literature, clinical description, research, and general information. Unfortunately, though, some of the entries are bare. In addition to the large number of links provided through the infosearch and organization search options, Genetic Alliance also has an entirely separate “resource repository” containing a wealth of information for the global health community.
