Talking Glossary of Genetic Terms

The Talking Glossary of Genetic Terms is a public domain audio/visual glossary of 178 terms relevant to genetics, prepared and hosted by the National Human Genome Research Institute in the United States [http://www.genome.gov/glossary.cfm Talking Glossary of Genetic Terms] NHGRI retrieved 2007-Apr-27] .quote|The National Human Genome Research Institute(NHGRI) created the Talking Glossary of Genetic Terms to help people without scientific backgrounds understand the terms and concepts used in genetic research. Simply click on the term of interest to open a page with a wealth of information, including the term's pronunciation, audio information, images and additional links to related terms. Students, teachers and parents will find the glossary an easy-to-use, always available learning source on genetics.
