Talking Glossary of Genetics

Description

The Talking Glossary of Genetic Terms features more than 250 common genetic terms pronounced and explained in an easy-to-understand way by leading scientists and professionals at the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI).

Each term has a short written definition. Each term features the voice of an expert spontaneously explaining the term in their own words, typically in less than a minute – with no reading allowed. Together these two explanations help non-scientists better understand common genetic terms found in grade school textbooks, news stories and movies, and through interactions with medical professionals.

All terms are pronounced even if they are as simple as “gene.” Nearly all have expertly crafted color illustrations. Many have exciting 3D animations including common terms such as gene, chromosome, nucleus, mitochondria, golgi body, cell, ACGT and more.

The “Test Your Gene IQ” quiz automatically serves up a definition and asks you to choose the correct term name from a list. This ten-question quiz is random and never the same, and is a fun way to challenge your friends or prepare for a classroom quiz.

Features:
-Created and voiced by experts in the field at the NIH (NHGRI).
-Original high-quality “3D animations’ for many terms.
-More than 100 expert color illustrations by the same illustrator.
-Easily search, or browse alphabetically, for genetic terms.
-Terms chosen are from 7th – 12th grade biology texts, commonly heard in the media, or used by medical professionals.
-“Share a Term With a Friend”, or “Suggest a Term” functions.
-Take a random 10-question quiz for fun, or as a learning tool.
-All terms are pronounced, no matter how basic the term.

Should Add a "Play ALL" feature

Great app. 5-stars.

One suggestion: if they could add a "Play ALL" button that would be a GREAT addition for students and others that want to use this more as a study guide overview rather than just as a dictionary limited to looking up only one term at a time. If the makers are reading these comments, I hope they will add a feature like this in future updates. Thanks!

Great for the future

This app will be useful if you plan to go to med school for the future just to give you basic understanding where medicine may lead to within the next years.

Awesome!

One of the most helpful and well made apps I have ever come across!! A must for anyone who is taking a genetics class or is just interested in the subject.
