- An on-line exhibit on genetics research, sponsored by the Office of NIH History, is now available on the World Wide Web. The exhibit answers important questions about genetics research and features cartoons to increase children's interest in genetics. A physical version of the exhibit is also on display at the NIH Clinical Center.
