The Genetic Code
"...the Genetic Code in the table above has also been called "The Universal Genetic Code". It is known as "universal", because it is used by all known organisms as a code for DNA, mRNA, and tRNA. The universality of the genetic code encompases animals (including humans), plants, fungi, archaea, bacteria, and viruses."
Sections include: Books, Journals & AV ; Consumer & Patient Info ; Databases ; Educational Resources ; Ethical Issues ; Human Genome Project ; Institutions & Organizations ; Internet Guides ; Online Journals & Newsletters ; Terminology.

Human Genome Project Information
"The HGP's ultimate goal is to discover all the more than 80,000 human genes and render them accessible for further biological study."
Provides a great overview of the project. Major sections include: Research ; Education ; Medicine ; Ethical, Legal, Social Issues.
"MendelWeb is an educational resource for teachers and students interested in the origins of classical genetics, introductory data analysis, elementary plant science, and the history and literature of science. Constructed around Gregor Mendel's 1745 paper "Versuche ¸ber Pflanzen-Hybriden" and a revised version of the English translation by C.T. Druery and William Bateson, "Experiments in Plant Hybridization", MendelWeb is offered as a public sourcebook and collaborative environment compatible with a variety of guided and independent studies."
