The Genetics Home Reference: A New NLM Consumer Health Resource
The Genetics Home Reference (GHR) is a new information resource developed to be part of the National Library of Medicine's (NLM's) consumer health initiatives. The GHR's guiding principle is to make the health implications of the Human Genome Project accessible to the public. The GHR accomplishes this by providing a bridge between the NLM's consumer health systems MEDLINEplus and ClinicalTrials.gov on the one hand and the multiple resources emanating from the Human Genome Project on the other. The initial focus is on single gene conditions that are main topics in MEDLINEplus.
