Strong Points: News, Links
Weak Points: None
How can it be that this site escaped my radar until now? It certainly hasn’t been for my lack of scouring the Web. Perhaps the site is not linked as extensively as one might guess for such a catchy title that is housed at an NIH institute (the National Human Genome Research Institute). The opening page covers topics all over the map, but that isn’t bad, considering genome information is popping up almost everywhere and being used almost everywhere else. Headlines I visited included news of the dog genome and reconstruction of the DNA of a dinosaur-era creature. Topic areas included health, grants, policy, education, careers, and links to seminars and short course on genome analysis. There is literally something here for every molecular biologist.
