The National Library of Medicine® (NLM®) and other National Institutes of Health (NIH) Institutes offer many genetic information resources:
- GeneEd provides links to teacher and student resources.
- Genetics Home Reference™ is a guide to understanding effects of genetic variations on human health and links to more resources.
- Genome.gov links to a variety of health, education, research, news, and grants resources.
- Health Information for Genetic Disorders page links to multiple Institute pages.
- MedlinePlus® health topic pages link to general and disease-specific sources of information. Some topic pages are:
- Office of Rare Diseases Research (ORDR) page links to many genetic and rare disease information resources, including the Genetic and Rare Disease Information Center with specialists who answer questions and suggest sources for more information.
- OMIM®, Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man®, is a comprehensive, authoritative compendium of human genes and genetic phenotypes.
- Gene Tests™ includes links to a directory of international laboratories (offering molecular genetic testing, biochemical genetic testing, and specialized cytogenetic testing for more than 3,000 inherited disorders) and an international directory of genetics clinics providing diagnosis and genetic counseling services to patients and their families with known or suspected inherited disorders.
- Genetic Testing Registry (GTR) can be used to find information about conditions and phenotypes by searching for disease names, traits, drugs, proteins, and analytes (the sample analyzed).
