Twisted Ladder Media Issues Two CD-ROMs
Two new groundbreaking CD-ROMs use innovative multimedia and easy navigation techniques to make the genomic revolution understandable and accessible to many audiences.
The New Genetics: Courseware for Physicians is designed for medical doctors who wish to update their knowledge about genetics and genomics. Price includes Continuing Medical Education (CME) credits from Stanford University.
The New Genetics: Medicine and the Human Genome presents the same content, without CME credits, for college students, researchers, nurses, policymakers, attorneys, and others who are interested in the impact of genetics and genomics on healthcare and society.
Both CD-ROMs can be ordered through the Web site, which contains sample text, complete content outline, feature demonstrations, and animations. They were produced by Sara Tobin (Stanford University) and Ann Boughton (Twisted Ladder Media), with support from the Ethical, Legal, and Social Issues component of DOE's Human Genome Program.
The electronic form of the newsletter may be cited in the following style:
The Human Genome Project (HGP) was an international 13-year effort, 1990 to 2003. Primary goals were to discover the complete set of human genes and make them accessible for further biological study, and determine the complete sequence of DNA bases in the human genome. See Timeline for more HGP history.
Published from 1989 until 2002, this newsletter facilitated HGP communication, helped prevent duplication of research effort, and informed persons interested in genome research.
