Genetics Study Aid

Scitable is a new “free, collaborative learning space,” with a current focus in genetics, from the Nature Publishing Group. The Genetics Study Center allows you to post genetics questions to experts and access over 40 study packs on topics such as the discovery of DNA, mitosis and cell division, genetic mutation, gene mapping and disease, chromosomal abnormalities, and the ethics of genetic testing.

Faculty can host a free and easy-to-maintain online research site for their genetics students, including shared articles from Scitable’s library and group discussion capabilities. Faculty can visit www.nature.com/scitable/classGroup and follow the four-step wizard to set up a classroom space in less than five minutes.
