studies carried out by the German monk, Gregor Mendel in the late 1800s.
A Primer on Molecular Genetics: Covers the basics
from DNA --> RNA --> protein to more 'advanced' areas such as
molecular biology and the
mapping of genes.

Project: Learn about the efforts to
sequence all three
billion bases of the human genome.

Searchable database to locate
information about known inheritable characteristics in humans.
