This Internet-based educational resource on genetics was designed to expose university undergraduates and the general population to basic genetics concepts and principles.

By presenting basic genetics principles in a simple and concise manner and at a level accessible to the general public, our web site provides a large segment of the student population and the general public with the opportunity to become participants in the genetics revolution.

The web site also satisfies a need for access to basic genetics information (a genetic primer)that has been expressed by many students taking continuing education courses in the field of genetics.

The web site also satisfies the need of someone who lacks formal training in genetics but would like to know something about cloning, genome mapping, transgenic animals, or gene therapy.
