Genetics Home Reference, NLM’s resource on genetic health conditions, is now part of MedlinePlus, and its current standalone website will be sunset in October 2020. The announcement of this transition was posted on MedlinePlus on September 1.
Like Genetics Home Reference, MedlinePlus’s Genetics page contains information on over 1,300 health conditions with genetic causes or risk factors, 1,475 genes related to health, mitochondrial DNA, and all 46 human chromosomes. It also includes a primer on basic concepts in genetics and information on related topics like precision medicine.
To find this information at its new location, follow this direct link to MedlinePlus’s Genetics page, or go to MedlinePlus.gov and click on the new Genetics link at the top of the webpage. If you’ve used Genetics Home Reference before, the layout of the information will be familiar. More information about this transition can be found in the announcement on MedlinePlus.
