Genetics Home Reference is the NLM resource for consumer health information about health conditions that have a genetic component. The website provides a variety of authoritative information regarding health conditions including information about specific chromosomes and genes. Also, consumers will find resources that provide support, basics about genetics, information about genetic testing, as well as ethical considerations.

NNLM Resource Picks is a collaborative effort by the National Network of Libraries of Medicine regional offices which features a National Library of Medicine resource at each session to increase awareness of these resources and to encourage their integration by libraries and other organizations to more fully serve their colleagues and communities.
