Almost all diseases result from a complex interaction between an individual’s genetic make-up andenvironmental agents . Subtle differences in genetic factors cause people to respond differently to the same environmental exposure. This explains why some individuals have a fairly low risk of developing a disease as a result of an environmental insult, while others are much more vulnerable. As scientists learn more about how genetics and environmental factors work together to cause human diseases, they will be able to develop new strategies for the prevention and treatment of many illnesses. The Genes and Environment Initiative is a five-year, NIH-wide effort to identify the genetic and environmental basis of asthma, diabetes , cancer, and other common illnesses. This initiative will support the development of new procedures for analyzing genetic variation in groups of patients with specific illnesses, and new technologies for measuring exposures to chemical and biological agents, dietary intake, physical activity, psychosocial stress, and addictive substances.
Your Genes, Your Health- A multimedia guide to genetic disorders. The sites profiles fifteen disorders (e.g., hemophilia, cystic fibrosis, etc.) and explains the disease, how it is inherited, nature of symptoms, how prevalent it is and latest treatments.
Cluster or Coincidence- This resource includes video produced by WGBH (Boston) that talks about an autoimmune disease called scleroderma. Health officials explain that there is a genetic predisposition to scleroderma, and there may be environmental factors involved as well. Resource includes discussion questions.
Science Behind the Human Genome Project- Provides a full description of the human genome project and has a guide to Genetics 101 to understand the science behind the project. Explores ethical, social and legal issues surrounding genetically modified food, gene therapy, gene testing, use of genetics in the courtroom, etc.
