The Talking Glossary of Genetic Terms: 
Available In Spanish and English
Listen as experts like Dr. Francis Collins casually explain what a gene or an allele is, and why it is important. Over 200 genetic terms plainly described by professionals at the NIH, expertly illustrated, and many are 3D animated. For ESL learners, each term easily toggles from the English version to the Spanish version, or vice versa.
