An Illustrated Glossary of Genetic Terms

The National Human Genome Research Institute has a great talking glossary of genetic terms for students. The glossary is available online and as a free iPad app. The Talking Glossary of Genetic Terms features scientists explaining each term. Most terms are accompanied by an illustration and some terms are accompanied by 3D animations.

Applications for Education
After reviewing terms in the Talking Glossary of Genetic Terms students can test their knowledge by taking the Test Your Gene Knowledge quiz. The glossary on its own is a good review resource to link to your course blog or website.
