Website Accessibility

The National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) is making every effort to ensure that the information available on our site is accessible to all users and is in compliance with Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act (29 U.S.C. 794d).

Section 508 requires that all individuals with disabilities (whether they are federal government employees or members of the general public) have access to and use of information and data comparable to that provided to individuals without disabilities, unless an undue burden would be imposed.

Compliance is an ongoing process. It is possible that some users may encounter problems accessing some pages.

  • Exact nature of the accessibility problem.
  • Title and URL(s) of pages you are having difficulty accessing.
  • Type and version of your Web browser.
  • Operating system.
  • Type of assistive technology (e.g. such as a screen reader, Braille reader, etc.), if used.

A member of the NHGRI Web team will contact you as soon as possible and assist you.
