Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology - developing field and has become the most important establishment providing a good level of education in Estonia.
Human Germline Engineering
This site offers a unique compliation of opinion and commentary from specialists around the world on the scientific, social and ethical implications of altering the genes we pass to our children. But the site is designed for non-specialists!!!
Human Genome Project
The human genomic research programme at The Sanger Centre encompasses mapping, sequencing, and structural and functional interpretation. A general overview of the human genome project is available - for advanced readers.
National Geographics magazines
"Secrets of the gene" in the Oktober 1999 - partially dedicated to genetics. “The technology of mapping DNA is actually quite visually boring. That’s been the challenge of this story.”
National Human Genome Research Institute
(HGP) is an international research effort to characterize the genomes of human and selected model organisms through complete mapping and sequencing of their DNA, to develop technologies for genomic analysis, to examine the ethical, legal, and social implications of human genetics research, and to train scientists who will be able to utilize the tools and resources developed through the HGP to pursue biological studies that will improve human health. Also there is NEW GOALS FOR THE U.S. HUMAN GENOME PROJECT 1998 - 2003. Make sure You visit this site!
deCode Genetics
Iceland, deCODE genetics is a population-based genomics company conducting research into the inherited causes of common diseases. deCODE operates one of the most technologically advanced, high-throughput genotyping laboratories in the world. Together with pharmaceutical companies and other healthcare institutions, deCODE aims to utilize its research to develop new methods for identifying, treating and preventing diseases.
The home page of MANNVERND - the organized opposition to the Icelandic government's Act on a Health Sector Database (HSD). MANNVERND believes that this Act infringes on human rights, personal privacy, and on accepted medical, scientific and commercial standards.
Human Genome Project Information
Explore this site for information about the U.S. and worldwide Human Genome Project and also examine the ethical, legal and social issues about genotyping. Very good for common reader!
USA National Bioethics Advisory Commission
The National Bioethics Advisory Commission shall advise, consult with, and make recommendations to the National Science and Technology Council, chaired by the President; Federal agencies; and other appropriate entities, and also make available to the public the Commission's advice and recommendations. The Commission's purview includes the appropriateness of departmental, agency, or other governmental programs, policies, assignments, missions, guidelines, and regulations as they relate to bioethical issues arising from research on human biology and behavior, and applications, including the clinical applications, of that research. The Commission shall identify broad, overarching principles to govern the ethical conduct of research, citing individual projects only as illustrations for such principles. The Commission shall not be responsible for the review and approval of individual projects.

The Alliance of Genetic Support Groups, Inc.
This is a nonprofit tax exempt organization founded in 1986 as a national coalition of consumers, professionals and genetic support groups to voice the common concerns of children, adults and families living with, and at risk for, genetic conditions. The Alliance builds partnerships among consumers and professionals and the private and public sectors to promote optimum healthcare and enhanced quality of life for individuals identified with genetic conditions.
Genetic Interest Group
The Genetic Interest Group (GIG) is a national alliance of organisations with a membership of over 120 charities which support children, families and individuals affected by genetic disorders. Its primary goal is to promote awareness and understanding of genetic disorders so that high quality services for people affected by genetic conditions are developed and made available to all who need them
GeneClinics is a medical knowledge base relating genetic testing to the diagnosis, management, and genetic counseling of individuals and families with specific inherited disorders.
Information for Genetic Professionals
Information for genetic professionals at the University of Kansas Medical Center is updated regularly with clinical, research, and educational resources for genetic counselors, clinical geneticists, and medical geneticists.
WIRED News - Genetics Scandal Inflames Iceland
Icelanders are accusing their government of taking huge payments from the company licensed to create a genetic database of the country's entire population. Although trading money for influence is nothing new, critics are reacting harshly at least partly because the information involved is so sensitive. Then there's the matter of the government accepting money from deCODE Genetic, a biotech firm, even as it's trying to pass a genetics bill.
