Genomics Education Resource Center (GenomeEd)

The mission of GenomeEd is to provide high-quality educational resources for group instruction or self-directed learning in genetics or genomics by healthcare educators and practitioners. GenomeEd solicits, reviews and organizes resources through an interdisciplinary collaborative exchange.

Genomics is becoming increasingly relevant to all health care professionals. This centralized web resource provides vetted educational resources and approaches for educators and learners to achieve genetic or genomic competency.

GenomeEd is funded and maintained by the National Human Genome Research Institute of the National Institutes of Health.
