NSTA: Freebies for Science Teachers
GeneEd Added: Jul 14, 2017 Revisit the National Library of Medicine’s GeneEd for new resources. Targeted primarily for high school students and teachers, the website offers genetics education resources organized by Topics, Labs, Teacher Resources, Career Information, and Highlights (news). Recent additions to the Topics page include articles, interactive tutorials, and teacher resources for exploring the role of genetics in influencing behavior and identity and for exploring precision medicine and pharmacogenomics. (Precision medicine is a modern approach to health management in which treatment and prevention approaches are identified based on a person’s genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors; similarly, pharmacogenomics, part of precision medicine, examines how genes affect a person’s response to drugs.) To access the new materials, click on the Topics tab, go to Top Issues in Genetics, and select the links Genetics, Behavior and Identity, or Precision Medicine.
