A new government gateway collects human genetics information for researchers, patients, and the public in one streamlined site at http://www.genome.gov. Sponsored by the National Human Genome Research Institute, the site offers updates on the human genome project, scheduled for "final draft" completion in April 2003, and access to information on grants, training programs, and jobs. A section on health aspects of genetics research provides research news and links to clinical trials. A series of frequently asked questions and an illustrated, "talking" glossary help fill the gaps for genome neophytes.
