OOPS. A typo in the URL. Sorry folks. As someone pointed out to me via
private email. The dictionary URL to view the karyotype example in
figure 4 of the dictionary didn't work. A URL typo. I fixed it in the
message copy redux below and herewith is the correct URL for your
We've all heard that one before. Right?
Well early this year I saw a free announcement in the U.S. Gov's Genome
Project webpage for a "free" poster of our human genome and karyotype. A
karyotype is a picture of all our chromosomes. You can see an example of
a male karyotype in the sample pages in my Dictionary webpage. Click on
the "view some sample figures" link in the home page and look at figure
The U.S. Gov's DOE Human Genome Project was offering this poster free to
anyone who requested a copy. It is a beautiful, high gloss, full color
wall poster showing the human genome and lots of graphical information.
The packet you get includes other educational information and graphics
too. I ordered one back then. It took about two months to get it. I've
had it on my wall since along with my very attractive and useful for
YSNP discussions YCC 2005 Phylogenetic Tree provided by
FamilyTreeDNA.com to all the Genetic Genealogy Pioneers (GGPs) who
attended the 2004 First International Conference of Genetic Genealogists
in Houston TX.
This full color, glossy, human genome poster makes a very nice addition
to the wall of any true-blue, hard-core, Genetic Genealogist. :-)
Here is the link for more information and to view a thumbnail of the
chart online. And its free as I said, at least overtly ... let's say ...
until April 15th at which point they'll ask us all for our usual annual
additional contribution as the case may be, and/or the usual
reconciliation of how much we owe or not to Uncle Sam again. :-)
If you haven't ordered one, I suggest you do it. But expect to wait
about two months to get it by mail. But it is worth the wait if really
getting into this Genetic Genealogy DNA Testing new field.
