2018 marks the 15th anniversary of the completion of the Human Genome Project and to commemorate this milestone, the National Association of Biology Teachers has joined a diverse group of partners and collaborators for a ‘15 for 15’ celebration highlighting “15 ways that genomics has and will continue to transform our world.”

As part of the ’15 for 15′, the editorial team of The American Biology Teacher (ABT) invites you to read and share a special genomics-themed issue of our journal being made freely available for the rest of 2018.

Each month, the ABT features articles in four broad categories, features, research on learning, inquiry and investigations and tips, tricks and techniques. These articles promote the scholarship and professionalism of our community while also offering “just in time” resources for biology teachers at all level.

From cover to cover, the April 2018 issue of the journal features a wide range of genetics and genomics focused articles that will bring this topic to life in your classroom. The issue also features an exclusive essay entitled “Genomics – Past, Present, and Future: Letter to My Daughter” from Dr. Eric D. Green, director of the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI).

We hope that anyone interested in biology teaching and learning will find a bit of inspiration in the pages of the ABT, and we know you will enjoy reading it as much as we do.
