In the 2012 President's Budget Request, the National Biological Information Infrastructure (NBII) is terminated. As a result, all resources, databases, tools, and applications within this web site will be removed on January 15, 2012. For more information, please refer to the NBII Program Termination page.
While this section of our Web site provides a general overview of the topic of genetic diversity, the primary and supplemental resources included focus on non-human aspects of genetic biodiversity. The scope of the National Biological Information Infrastructure addresses non-human biological and natural resources. If you are interested specifically in information on human genetics or the Human Genome Project, you should refer to the National Institute of Health's National Human Genome Research Institute Web site, which provides comprehensive information on research, grants, educational resources, careers, and the latest news on human genomics issues.
