Genes, Genomes, and Human Genetics was initiated with funds from the National Center for Research Resources, National Institutes of Health.

Genes, Genomes, and Human Genetics is ordinarily a three credit, introductory college course open to anyone with access to the Internet. The course is aimed at students who have taken US high school-level courses (or their equivalent) in biology and chemistry, including high school students, teachers, retirees, home schoolers, and employees at pharmaceutical and biotechnology firms. This summer, we are using some aspects of the course as a supplement to "Research Internship in Science Education" (15:526:555).
