Personal Genetics Education Project

Map-Ed wins Unlocking Life’s Code’s May Resource of the Month!

Thank you so very much to our colleagues at the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI/NIH) and Unlocking Life’s Code! We are delighted to have our online quiz platform, Map-Ed: Genetics is Getting Personal, selected as their third-ever Resource of the Month. Each Map-Ed quiz is 5 questions, and tackles scientific and ethical questions in genetics. We’re also happy to debut a new look to the quizzes – thanks to the generous on-going grant from Sigma-Aldrich.

Choose one – or have a try with all six – and work your way through the questions. Once you complete a quiz, you can pin yourself on a world map, and watch as knowledge spreads across the globe. Enjoy the interactive features of the map – always a crowd-pleaser – developed with generous support from Autodesk.

We are in wonderful company as we join the ranks of the first two awardees, HudsonAlpha’s iCell and Cell Size and Scale from the University of Utah’s Genetic Science Learning Center.

If you have the chance, we highly recommend seeing Unlocking Life’s Code as it travels around North America in the coming months. Whether you have seen it in person or not – do not miss their website. It is full of excellent resources for teachers, students, and anyone interested in engaging and accessible information about genetics.
