Genetics Home Reference has added genetics education resources for teachers and students, including links to interactive tutorials, lesson plans, labs, and experiments. Many of the resources were integrated from the National Library of Medicine's GeneEd website, a collection of genetics education materials for grades 9 to 12, which was retired on March 31, 2019. Combining these two resources creates a single access point at the National Library of Medicine for genetics information for the public. Find these education materials on Genetics Home Reference in the "Classroom" section. Additional information about the basics of genetics and other genetics concepts can be found in the "Help Me Understand Genetics" section of Genetics Home Reference.
Genetics Home Reference is partnered with MedlinePlus Connect, another service of the National Library of Medicine (NLM), to share patient-friendly health information through patient portals and electronic health record (EHR) systems. Since 2010, MedlinePlus Connect has been providing information related to a patient's health conditions from MedlinePlus, an NLM resource for easy-to-understand health materials. In 2013, the service began providing relevant information about genetic conditions from Genetics Home Reference.
