Specific Results

  1. Chromosomes and Genetics (Utah Museum)
      Provides basic information about chromosomes, DNA, stem cells, and related topics of interest. Visitors sometimes misspell as chromosones, cromosomes, or cromosones. 10-09

  2. Genetics Glossary (National Human Genome Research Institute)
      Provides definitions of the key terms, such as base pairs. 6-00

  3. Genetics and Genome Mapping (Nature.com)
      "Biology has become an increasingly data-rich subject, and NPG is committed to helping the community mine those data for novel insight. Many of the emerging fields of large-scale, data-rich, biology are designated by the suffix '-omics' added onto previously used terms." Provides news on genetics and genome mapping.

  8. Genetics (Awesome Library)
      Provides information on genes.

  9. Bio-Fuels From Genetics (MSN.com)
      "J. Craig Venter, who gained worldwide fame in 2000 when he mapped the human genetic code, is behind a new start-up called Synthetic Genomics, which plans to create new types of organisms that, ideally, would produce hydrogen, secrete nonpolluting heating oil or be able to break down greenhouse gases." 11-05

  10. Bio-Fuels From Genetics (VenterInstitute.org)
      "According to the U.S. Department of Energy approximately 80 percent of all human-caused carbon dioxide emissions currently come from fossil fuel combustion. The DOE also estimates that world carbon dioxide emissions are projected to rise from 6.1 billion metric tons carbon equivalent in 1999 to 7.9 billion metric tons per year in 2010 and to 9.9 billion metric tons in 2020. This continued consumption of fossil fuels is ample evidence that there is a growing need to eliminate carbon dioxide output into the environment and if possible capture back some of the carbon dioxide associated with global warming. The Biological Energy group is developing and using biological pathways and microbial metabolism to produce new fuels with higher energy output in an environmentally sound fashion. The team uses microbes, microbial genomics, microbial pathways, and plants as potential solutions to carbon sequestration and clean energy production. Current projects include: development of better understanding and reengineering of the photosynthetic pathway to divert the sunís energy into more hydrogen production as well as reengineering cellulase pathways in certain bacterial to produce ethanol." 11-05
