I found this website when looking for additional resources into my upper division genetics course regarding complex traits and the role of genes and environment. A review of the vast array of resources quickly brought me to a number of different articles and materials that I can use to have students explore genetics of COVID-19, genetics of race, genetic diversity among populations, schizophrenia, and much more. The curriculum materials for both teachers and students from the National Human Genome Research Institute are of very high quality. This resource is like a big box store for Genetics.
